IEEE Pervasive Computing invites articles relating to the use of
pervasive computing in sports to enhance the sport (or game) and/or
experiences for players, spectators, and/or judges. We hope to span a
wide range of sports including single-player, multi-player, and large
team sports as well as activities ranging from track and field to indoor
team sports to racing. We especially welcome papers that bridge multiple
aspects of a system, report on the challenges of  integration and
deployment, and report on usage experience. Example topics include (but
are not limited to):

       Changing the game
           o utilizing computing during the game
           o computing as part of a sport
           o enhancing the players experience
       Sensing and monitoring practices and matches
           o interpretation of sensor data streams
           o real-time transmission of information
           o new sensors and innovative use of existing sensors
       Assistance in training
           o supervised and unsupervised training
           o playback and suggestions for corrective action
           o analysis of multiple sessions for patterns/correlations
       Enhancement for spectators
           o tracking of players and game objects
           o real-time broadcast to a variety of client devices
           o spectator participation
       Improved judging/scoring
           o data visualization for judging
           o effect on the game of providing data to judges
           o statistics collection and analysis
       Case studies and lessons learned
           o for a variety of sports
           o experimental and deployed systems
           o commercial products

Submissions should be 4,000 to 6,000 words long and should follow the
magazine's guidelines on style and presentation. All submissions will be
peer reviewed in accordance with normal practice for scientific
publications. Submissions should be received by 14 February 2005 to
receive full consideration.

In addition to full-length submissions, we also invite work-in-progress
submissions of 250 words or less (submit to Shani Murray at
[log in to unmask]). These will not be peer-reviewed but will be
reviewed by the Department Editor and, if accepted, edited by the staff

submissions is 1 May 2005.
