Conference scope

Pervasive services and computing are emerging as the next computing 
paradigm in which infrastructure and services are seamlessly available 
anywhere, anytime, and in any format. This exciting new paradigm is the 
result of recent research and technological advances in wireless & 
sensor networks, distributed systems, mobile & agent computing and 
autonomic computing & services. The 2006 IEEE International Conference 
on Pervasive Services (ICPS?06), to be held in Lyon, France provides a 
forum for researchers, engineers, application & service developers and 
users to present their latest advances in the field of pervasive 
computing and services.


Original contributions are solicited in all pervasive computing & 
services research and applications. Contributions for industry and 
application sessions are also solicited. Topics include, but are not 
limited to:

- Pervasive and autonomous computing and architectures
- Mobile Computing
- Wearable Computing
- Smart Devices and Networks
- Wireless & Sensor Networks
- Middleware support for pervasive and mobile computing
- Pervasive computing and Management
- Speech processing / advanced computer vision
- User interfaces and interaction model
- Positioning and Tracking Technologies
- Programmable and active networks
- Service dissemination and discovery protocols
- Environments & algorithms for pervasive application development
- Runtime support for intelligent, adaptive agents
- Security services for applications in pervasive environments
- Programming paradigms for pervasive computing applications
- Pervasive computing applications requirements
- Performance measurement and Benchmarking
- Context aware computing and networking
- Pervasive Grids

Paper Submission

ICPS2006 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Please 
submit full papers (10 pages maximum in IEEE double-column format). 
Paper submission should be electronic in PS or PDF format. Questions 
concerning hardcopy submissions or any other issues may be directed to
