At the UbiComp conference this year, a number of workshops were organised and in some of them – including ours – the topics overlapped with each other significantly. This caused the submission numbers to be lower than anticipated.

In order to maintain a level of quality during the workshop session, we have decided to merge our workshop with the ‘Sensors & Behaviour’ workshop. As an author, this does not require any extra attention, it simply means the authors who submitted to either of these two workshops will attend the same session.

We chose to merge these two particular workshops because of the similarity in their topic.

On behalf of the workshop organisers,

Mood sensing in-the-wild is a hot topic in the Ubicomp community due to the rapid proliferation of ubiquitous and wearable technologies, and the usefulness of this information (e.g., better user experience, smarter technology). This workshop seeks to understand the current state of the art of mood sensing using ubiquitous and wearable technologies under in vivo settings by bringing together researchers of this thriving research agenda.

We invite submissions for the Workshop on Mood Sensing In-the-Wild, co-located with the 2018 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2018). The day-long workshop will be held on 12 October 2018, before the main conference. The workshop will be conducted as a single mini-track, in which each participant will present their workshop paper (10 minutes), followed by a short (5 minutes) discussion. The workshop will also include panel discussion and informal coffee breaks for networking with other researchers.

Important dates

  • Deadline for submissions: 20 July 2018
  • Feedback to authors: 31 July 2018
  • Camera-ready submissions: 14 August 2018
