[Apology for cross-posting] Call for Papers: Special Issue on
Out-of-the-Lab Pervasive Computing Florian Alt, Vassilis Kostakos, Nuria
Oliver Title and abstracts due: 18 March 2021 (email to
[log in to unmask]) Full Manuscripts due: 1 April 2021 (via submission
site) Publication: January-March 2022 The radical societal changes we are
witnessing as a result of COVID-19 are giving rise to new challenges and
new opportunities for pervasive computing and its researchers. Social
distancing measures are making it harder to conduct lab-based user studies
and in-person observations. Pervasive computing researchers are now faced
with the challenge of designing and conducting controlled user studies
remotely, but at the same time pervasive computing is becoming crucial at
enabling remote research in a wide range of disciplines and application
domains, including but not limited to, education, health, housing,
transportation, work, and entertainment. In this special issue, we seek to
catalyze new research in pervasive computing outside the lab. Of particular
interest are technologies and methods for conducting research with limited,
remote, or no access to users. The guest editors invite original and
high-quality submissions addressing any aspect of this field, as long as
the connection to pervasive computing is clear and central to the paper.
Review or summary articles—for example, critical evaluations of the state
of the art or an insightful analysis of established and upcoming
technologies—may be accepted if they demonstrate academic rigor and
relevance. Example topics include: Methods, techniques, and technologies
for conducting user studies outside the lab Pervasive technologies for
remote data collection Cases studies and lessons learned from large-scale
rollout of technologies Conducting user-centered research in the COVID-19
era Evaluation without users Pervasive computing in education, health,
housing, transportation, work, and entertainment Security and privacy
issues in pervasive computing deployments Human interaction with the edge
New business models to support large-scale rollout of pervasive
technologies Submission Guidelines Please read the Author Guidelines here.
Articles submitted to IEEE Pervasive Computing should not exceed 6,000
words, including all text, abstract, keywords, bibliography, biographies,
and table text. The word count must include 250 words for each table and
figure. References should be limited to at most 20 citations (40 for survey
papers). Authors are encouraged, but not required, to use a template for
submission (accepted articles will ultimately be typeset by magazine staff
for publication). In addition, for this special issue, we invite
submissions of 300-word case studies. These should describe timely
projects, systems, and activities that are relevant to this special issue.
Case studies should describe the motivation and objectives of the work,
highlight the deployment characteristics, and summarize any preliminary
findings or results if available. We are happy to receive case studies for
ongoing work. The accepted case studies will be curated and combined into a
single report that will be published in this special issue. Case studies
should be submitted using the same process as abstracts, and they should
include an in-text reference or link that provides more information about
the case study or project. Manuscripts should not be published or currently
submitted for publication elsewhere. When you are ready to submit, please
go to Guest Editors Contact the
