Workshop on Pervasive Advertising and Shopping
in conjunction with Pervasive 2010, May 17 2010, Helsinki, Finland
Submission Deadline: February 8, 2010
Due to several requests we extend the submission deadline to February 8,
Pervasive computing technologies such as a variety of ever-smaller mobile
devices, public digital displays, and location sensing and tracking tools
are rapidly adopted by the advertising and retail industries. Adoption is
driven by the comprehensive business models facilitated by these
technologies, a fact that leads us to believe that advertising and shopping
could well be amongst the most important deployment domains for pervasive
technologies. Furthermore, the two industries are intimately linked:
advertising that is the communication of sponsored messages to inform,
convince, and persuade to buy leads to shopping, that is the examination and
purchasing of goods.
However, the opportunities, benefits and drawbacks of pervasive technologies
in these domains only now are beginning to be understood. Moreover the
current trend whereby power is shifting towards consumers, makes specific
aspects of advertising and shopping such as brand experience, word of mouth,
and audience measurement gain importance, and provides opportunities for
pervasive technologies to generate some true benefit for consumers.
We believe that our research community has a responsibility to contribute
towards the improved understanding of the implications of this change and
whenever possible to play a leading role in shaping it in a positive and
meaningful way. To this end, this workshop looks at the future of
advertising and shopping from the perspective of pervasive computing. It
aims to provide a foundational structure for the field and will attempt to
sketch a roadmap for further research and deployment challenges in this
We invite papers that address any relevant issues in the fields of pervasive
advertising and shopping.
In addition to online proceedings, selected workshop papers will be
considered for publication in a special issue of Personal and Ubiquitous
We ask potential attendees to submit up to 10-page position papers
describing how their research relates to the particular focus on the
workshop. Position papers should also include description of ongoing
research, results obtained, experience gathered, new ideas, future projects
or questions on topics related to pervasive advertising and shopping. Each
participant is also asked to provide a short paragraph (up to 200 words) on
their vision of advertising and shopping in 25 years from now. All
submissions will be peer-reviewed.

All submissions must be submitted via email to Florian Alt:

Papers should be no longer than 10 pages. All papers must be submitted in
PDF in Springer LNCS format. At least one author for each accepted paper is
expected to attend the workshop.
Selected papers from the workshop will be considered for expansion and
inclusion in a special issue of the Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (PUC)
journal on Pervasive Advertising and Shopping.
