The 3rd International Workshop on Location-based Services
and Applications in Ubiquitous Computing
(LSAUC 2019)



CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION


As part of
The 17th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2019)

July 15 – 19, 2019
Dublin, Ireland


Paper Submission Deadline: 27 April 2019 - Extended

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters



SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES 
The advances in Location-based Services and Applications in Ubiquitous Computing of mobile devices have enabled the realization of intelligent environments for people and machines to communicate with each other, interact with information processing devices, and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through various types of networks and systems everywhere, anytime. A key enabler of these ubiquitous connectivity environments is the advancement of location-aware technology in various communication sectors, ranging from communication middleware and operating systems to networking protocols and applications. The International Workshop on Location-based Services and Applications in Ubiquitous Computing (LSAUC 2019) will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds to interact and exchange experiences about the design and implementation of mobile and ubiquitous systems. 

The LSAUC Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following
  • Location Mechanisms and Services
  • Location and Discovery of Things on the Internet
  • Location-aware and Context-aware Networking and Computing
  • Location-based Services and Geographic Information Systems
  • Location-based Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Location-based Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks
  • Location-Aware Applications in Smartphones
  • Spatio-temporal Data Acquisition, Processing, Mining and Analysis
  • Context-aware Computing for Location-based Applications
  • Communications Architectures and Protocols in Ubiquitous Computing
  • Positioning and Tracking Technologies for Ubiquitous Applications
  • Ubiquitous Computing for Location-Based Social Networks
  • Ubiquitous Social Wireless Networks
  • User Interfaces and Usability Issues for Ubiquitous Applications
  • Mobile Crowdsourcing and Geotagged Social Media Data
  • Innovative Mobile Social Networking Applications
  • Social Location-based Context-aware Systems, Services, and Applications
  • Middleware platforms for location/context-dependent services
  • Location and Visualization
  • Security and Privacy Vulnerabilities of Location Aware Services, Computing, and Applications
  • Privacy Concerns and Preservation in Location based Systems and Applications

Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. 

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop paper submission site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lsauc2019.  Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

Conference Policies
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, language, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2019 conference to present the paper at the Workshop as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages

Proceedings
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2019 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

SPECIAL ISSUE
Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the Workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
