The Sixteenth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and
PerCom 2018 (http://www.percom.org/)
Athens, Greece, March 19-23, 2018
CALL FOR PAPERS
IEEE PerCom, now in its sixteenth year, is established as the premier annual
scholarly venue in the areas of pervasive computing and communications.
Pervasive computing and communications have evolved into highly active areas of
research; they have found their way into many current commercial systems due to
the tremendous advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and topics
including wireless networking, mobile and distributed computing, sensor
systems, ambient intelligence, and smart devices.
PerCom 2018 will be held in Athens, the capital city of Greece and one of the
most historic cities in Europe. PerCom 2018 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; insightful keynote speeches;
panel discussions from domain experts; and posters of emerging ideas.
Research contributions are solicited in all areas pertinent to pervasive
computing and communications, including:
* Advances in pervasive systems and infrastructures: middleware systems and
services; large-scale data management for pervasive computing; clouds,
cloudlets, and fog computing; integrations of smartphones in pervasive
experiences; applications of device-to-device coordination.
* Theories, models, and algorithms: context modeling and reasoning; adaptive
and context-aware computing; activity recognition; programing paradigms;
applied machine learning; cognitive computing techniques.
* Domain-specific challenges and novel applications: urban/mobile
crowdsensing & intelligence; pervasive technologies for healthcare;
cyber-physical pervasive computing; innovative pervasive computing
* Intersections of pervasive computing with: social networks; opportunistic
networks; Internet of things; sensor networks; RFID systems; big data.
* New techniques for user-level concerns : participatory and social sensing;
trust, security, and privacy; user interface, interaction, and persuasion;
social networking and pervasive computing.
* Technological innovations: architectures, protocols, and technologies for
pervasive communications; mobile and wearable computing systems and
services; smart devices and intelligent environments; positioning and
Contributions can be analytical, empirical, technological, methodological, or a
combination of these. Papers reporting strong systems engineering contributions
backed by solid and appropriate evaluations are strongly encouraged. The impact
of the contributions should be demonstrated in the context of pervasive
computing and communications. Papers applying known techniques from other
fields must clearly demonstrate substantial novelty or pervasive computing
Workshops and Affiliated Events
A number of workshops will be held in conjunction with the main conference.
Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries
(Xplore) along with papers from the main conference. As in the past, PerCom
2018 will also feature a PhD Forum, Work-in-Progress Posters, and Live
Demonstrations. Please visit the conference website for details.
Best paper award
The best paper will receive the prestigious Mark Weiser Best Paper Award.
Papers of particular merit will be considered for a special issue of the
Elsevier journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC).
