Call for Papers for the Mini Track

"Pervasive Information Systems"
(Sponsored by SIG HCI)
Keywords: pervasive information systems, ubiquitous computing,
wireless devices, tracking devices, location-aware systems

Pervasive information systems use increasingly ubiquitous and
connected computing devices to allow people to work with information
anywhere, at any time. These systems can be embedded in the
environment, augment user's everyday experiences in a "contextualized"
fashion, or be worn. Just as the PC transformed both business and
personal life in the 1990s, a new generation of information appliances
is transforming our lives including how we work, are entertained and
study, manage our home environment, and are governed.

This Mini Track solicits papers on the social issues and impacts
associated with any "pervasive" or "highly mobile" system. In
particular, it calls for studies of pervasive information systems and:

Privacy. Ubiquitous computing conjures visions of big and little
brother, and ever-diminishing privacy. But it also opens up new forms
of communication, collaboration and social relations.
Community. Pervasive information systems can be used to support
communities of practice, geographic community, and virtual community
by enabling location or context aware data capture and retrieval. They
can be used to support social interaction and face-to-face
communication. Such services could be based on the ability to either
track individuals as they go from one location to another or detect
when they interact with each other or with various "smart" objects
embedded in the space.

Commerce. Ubiquitous computing enables new forms of commerce including
M-commerce (mobile), L-Commerce (location), and S-Commerce (silent).
This mini-track is interested in ubiquitous computing enabled commerce
with a direct user or social impact.
