WIP Deadline:  See below
Publication date: April 2005


Many believe that the smart phone, a result of convergence of mobile
phone and PDA capabilities, is THE platform for realizing the visions of
pervasive computing. Empowered with general-purpose computing, data and
voice communication and sensing (for example, location) capabilities,
the smart phone can be the single personal device for every interaction
with a computerized environment is appealing in an increasingly busy
world. IEEE Pervasive Computing invites articles relating to work that
explores this possibility, from both a technological and human

We invite submissions that cover any relevant topic to this theme of the
smart phone and its role in the realization of pervasive computing.
Relevant themes include but are not limited to:

        Mobile applications for individuals or groups
        Real-life case studies that inform design
        User interfaces and human factors
        Social and cultural practices
        Technology policy and telecommunications infrastructure
        Device and service interaction
        Location-aware services
        Maintenability and software management issues
        Bluetooth SDP on phones and performance issues
        Energy efficiency solutions at application level
        Middleware and protocols for aiding application development
        Hardware, OS and convergence issues
        Security and privacy
        Standards for data or telecommunication
        Sensing on the device

IEEE Pervasive Computing is interested in a variety of submission types,
including research, project retrospective, surveys, and tutorials.
Research articles should present summaries of new contributions that are
significantly different from previously published work. Retrospective
articles give a summary of lessons learned for important longer-term
projects, synthesizing the results that may have appeared elsewhere.
Survey articles provide a comprehensive overview of a critical topic
that is relevant to the special issue but not found in any other forum
and would be useful to educate the readers of this magazine. Tutorials
provide relevant how-to knowledge of some important technology or
technique that would inform the readership, again in a way that would
not likely be found in any other publication forum.

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 15 November 2004 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
into a feature for the issue. The deadline for work-in-progress
submissions is 15 February 2005.
