First ACM Workshop on Mobile Crowdsensing Systems and Applications

(Co-located with SenSys 2017)


Recently, with the proliferation of mobile devices with rich sensor peripherals and computation capability, mobile crowdsensing, a special form of crowdsourcing where communities contribute sensing information and human intelligence using mobile devices to form a body of knowledge, has gained much interest in a variety of environmental, commercial, and social applications. Mobile crowdsensing spans a wide spectrum of user involvement, from collecting sensor measurements with no user intervention to requiring active participation of mobile users. Despite some commercial success, wider adoption of mobile crowdsensing face the challenges of low data quality, incomplete data, few contributing participants, lack of killer applications, etc. This workshop aims to bring together researchers in the field of mobile crowdsensing to exchange ideas and advance the research frontier.
