Call for Papers

CASPer 2016 provides a forum for discussion, debate, and collaboration focused on ideas, trends, techniques, and recent advances in crowdsensing and crowdsourcing. We invite original research contributions that advance the state of the art as well as position papers that pose a new direction or present a controversial point of view. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Algorithms to handle, process, and visualize large-scale crowdsensing/ crowdsourcing data sets
  • Data integrity, security, privacy, and provenance for crowdsensing/ crowdsourcing data
  • Trust and reputation systems for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
  • Determining and assessing Quality of Information for crowdsensing/ crowdsourcing data
  • Crowd-assisted (human-in-the-loop) approaches to analyzing crowdsensing/crowdsourcing data
  • Context modeling and reasoning in crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
  • Incentive mechanisms for participation in crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
  • Supporting crowdsensing/crowdsourcing in heterogeneous networks
  • Crowd assisted pervasive systems and communications
  • Novel use of sensors for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
  • Energy-efficient mechanisms for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
  • Programming abstractions and middleware for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
  • Novel large-scale and enterprise crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications

Paper submission

Submitted papers must be original contributions that are unpublished and are not currently under consideration for publication by other venues. Submissions are limited to a maximum length of 6 (six) pages and must adhere to IEEE format (2 column, 10 pt font).  Papers can be submitted via the  EDAS submission portal for CASPer 2016. IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates can be found here, and formatting instructions can be found here. Other than page-length, these guidelines match those for the parent website, and more detailed submission guidelines can be found here.

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE PerCom Workshop Proceedings (more details here).


PerCom 2016’s standard conference registration includes workshop admission, but there is no workshop only registration. Please note: each accepted paper requires a full PerCom registration (no registration is available for workshops only)!
