Welcome to the First IEEE WiMob 2014 Workshop on Dynamic Social Networks (DSoNets 2014)!
All accepted papers will be published in the WiMob 2014 conference proceedings published by IEEE, and will be accessible via IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
Social networks are one of the latest revolutions that have taken the world by storm; they are so popular nowadays that people want to use them anytime and everywhere through heterogeneous devices in order to facilitate human interaction as well as creating professional relationships. Their use within vehicles has attracted many companies to develop and to integrate basic social features to navigation applications and services.
In fact, online social networking can be relevant in a cloud environment and will greatly helps users to enhance the driving experience and the traffic efficiency through the use of services and applications that are user-oriented.
Moreover, the future Internet will be greatly influenced by the interaction of smart objects with each others to build a social communication network composed of social devices that generate a huge amount of data to be stored in dynamic social cloud infrastructures.
Although, social networks have a lot of potential for Internet of things (IoT) and vehicular scenarios, they bring up a number of technical challenges that need to be tackled.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together under one roof researchers, scientists and other like minded people with a common objective of using tomorrow's technologies for today's dynamic social networks development. We aim to provide a platform for discussion on basic challenges faced when considering the social angle in a wireless communication environment, to share latest research and thoughts on Internet of Things and vehicular social networks and to uphold the research activities in these areas. To this end we solicit submission of papers describing significant and innovative research contributions that address technical challenges and issues appearing from the combination of social Internet of Things (S-IoT) and vehicular communication systems.
