Pervasive computing envisages a world of communicating miniature 
devices, sensors and actuators to provide ambient and personalised 
services. Building on the current technology, it is ready for a wide 
range of applications that support and gradually change our everyday 
life. The goal of ICPCA2008 is to further explore both theoretical 
and practical issues in pervasive computing. It also aims to foster 
the exchange of ideas and collaboration for both researchers and 
practitioners. The organising committee is soliciting paper 
submissions for the main conference and its special tracks. 

Following on the success of previous conferences in the series held 
in Urmqi, China (August 2006) and Birmingham, UK (July 2007), the 
3rd International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Applications 
(ICPCA2008) features one generic technical track as well as five 
special interest tracks. 


Interested topics include (but are not limited to): 

  * Software infrastructure, middleware and frameworks for pervasive
  * Mobile and Wearable Computing 
  * Wireless Networks and Communications for Pervasive Computing 
  * The Semantic Web and Pervasive Computing 
  * Cross-Media for Pervasive Computing 
  * The Data Grid and Pervasive Computing 
  * Data and knowledge management for Pervasive Computing 
  * HCI Technologies for Pervasive Computing 
  * Security, Trust, Privacy, and other Socio-technical Issues in
Pervasive Computing 
  * Innovative Applications of Pervasive Computing and case studies 

All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the ICPCA2008 
programme committee and selected reviewers. Accepted ICPCA2008 papers 
will be included in IEEE Xplore digital library and are EI-indexed. In 
addition to technical papers, ICPCA2008 will include keynote speeches, 
late breaking results, poster presentations, and demonstrations.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by programme committee members 
and selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, 
and clarity of presentation. Accepted papers will be published in 
the IEEE categorized conference proceedings (see ICPCA2008 website 
for author instruction). Authors of selected papers will be invited 
to submit a revised and expanded version of their papers to be 
considered for publication in special issues of well-known 
international journals. 

*Special Tracks* 

A number of special-track sessions will be held in parallel with the 
general conference. Special tracks are an integral part of ICPCA2008
