                               CALL FOR PAPERS


Ninth IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and 
                     PerCom 2011 (http//

                      Seattle, USA, March 21 - 25, 2011

       **** Paper Submission Deadline --- September 27, 2010 ****

                                 Sponsored by

                            IEEE, IEEE Computer Society
                       The University of Texas at Arlington

IEEE PerCom, now in its ninth edition, is established as the premier
annual scholarly venue in the areas of pervasive computing and
communications. Pervasive computing and communications has evolved
into an active area of research and development, due to the
tremendous advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and topics
including wireless networking, mobile and distributed computing,
sensor systems, RFID technology, and the ubiquitous mobile phone.

PerCom 2011 will be held in Seattle, which is the primary gateway
to the pacific northwest of the United States, famous for its
breathtaking natural beauty and diversified city culture.
PerCom 2011 will provide a leading edge, scholarly forum for
researchers, engineers, and students alike to share their
state-of-the art research and developmental work in the broad areas
of pervasive computing and communications. The conference will feature
a diverse mixture of interactive forums: core technical sessions of
high quality cutting-edge research articles; targeted workshops on
exciting topics; live demonstrations of pervasive computing in action;
inciting keynote speeches; panel discussions from domain experts;
and posters of budding ideas.

Research contributions are solicited in all areas pertinent to
pervasive computing and communications, including:

- Innovative pervasive computing applications
- Context modeling and reasoning
- Programming paradigms for pervasive systems
- Software evolution and maintenance in pervasive systems
- Middleware services and agent technologies
- Adaptive, autonomic and context-aware computing
- Mobile/Wireless computing systems and services in pervasive computing
- Energy-efficient and green pervasive computing
- Communication architectures for pervasive computing
- Ad hoc networks for pervasive communications
- Pervasive opportunistic communications and applications
- Enabling technologies for pervasive systems (e.g., wireless BAN, PAN)
- Positioning and tracking technologies
- Sensors and RFIDs in pervasive systems
- Multimodal sensing and context for pervasive applications
- Pervasive sensing, perception and semantic interpretation
- Smart devices and intelligent environments
- Trust, security and privacy issues in pervasive systems
- User interface, interaction, and persuasion
- Virtual immersive communications
- Wearable computers
- Standards and interfaces for pervasive computing environments
- Social and economic models for pervasive systems


Many workshops will be held in conjunction with the main conference.
Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital
libraries (Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE PerCom.
As in the past, PerCom 2011 will also feature a PhD Forum,
Demonstrations and a Work-in-Progress Session. Please visit the
conference website for details.


The best paper will receive the prestigious Mark Weiser best paper award.
Papers of significant merit will be considered for a special issue of the
Elsevier journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC).


Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for
publication. Also, they must show a significant relevance to pervasive
computing and networking. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will
be considered. Papers must be in the IEEE format, 9 pages or less in size,
including references, figures and tables (at least 10pt font,
2-column format). All papers will be managed electronically through EDAS.
Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the
Technical Program Committee.
