3rd International Conference on Pervasive Computing
 PERVASIVE 2005 - http://www.pervasive.ifi.lmu.de/
       8-12 May, 2005, Munich, Germany

     Submission Deadline: 6 October 2004
       *** submission is now open ***

PERVASIVE 2005 - Call for Papers
PERVASIVE 2005 invites original and significant research contributions
in the area of pervasive computing technologies, systems and
applications. This conference seeks to present advances in computing
technology toward new modes of operation (ubiquitous, continuous, and
self-organized) and toward new usage models (ambient, context-aware, and
integral with human activity and environments).

Building on the success of previous conferences in this series held in
Zurich (August 2002) and in Linz/Vienna (April 2004), PERVASIVE 2005
will include a highly selective single-track program for technical
papers, accompanied by posters, videos, demonstrations, workshops, and a
doctoral colloquium. Papers will be included in the conference
proceedings published by Springer- Verlag as Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) and will also be made available through digital
libraries. Extended abstracts for poster, video and demo contributions
will be included in adjunct proceedings for the conference attendees.

The conference particularly values practical experience with design,
deployment and use of pervasive systems and applications, and
investigation of exciting and inspiring ideas and technologies. Areas of
interest include, but are not limited to:

* Pervasive computing user interfaces and user experience
* Device, communication, and interaction technologies for
  pervasive computing
* Pervasive sensing and perception, and location and context
* Software infrastructure for pervasive computing systems and
* Design, implementation and evaluation of pervasive systems and
* Privacy, security and trust in pervasive computing

Paper Submission
For PERVASIVE 2005 we are soliciting high quality technical papers that
describe original, unpublished research on pervasive computing.
Submissions should report concrete, significant, and transferable
results that help advance the state of the art in pervasive computing.
All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the PERVASIVE 2005
program committee and by additional expert reviewers from relevant
research communities. PERVASIVE 2005 requires that submissions have not
been published previously and that papers submitted are not under
simultaneous review for any other conference, journal or other

Papers for PERVASIVE 2005 should be formatted according to the
Springer-Verlag LNCS style. We solicit papers of up to 18 pages but
explicitly welcome shorter papers of up to 10 pages for presentation of
pointed results. All paper submissions will be treated as full papers
but it is important that their length is appropriate for their content.
Paper submissions have to be anonymized to facilitate blind review.
Authors should take care throughout their paper that their and their
institution's identity is not revealed. However relevant references to
an author's previous research should not be suppressed as they may be
required for reviewers to understand and evaluate the paper's

Late Breaking Results, Videos and Demonstrations
PERVASIVE 2005 aims to be a forum to communicate novel and innovative
ideas and very recent findings in pervasive computing. PERVASIVE 2005
will include a poster, video and demo program to give researchers
opportunity to present their research in a 
variety of engaging formats. We explicitly encourage submission 
of late breaking results and work in progress in these categories. 

Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss areas of special interest
within pervasive computing with like-minded researchers and
practitioners. Workshops will be focussed and aimed at sharing of
understandings, experiences, and ideas on particular aspects of
pervasive computing. Workshop proposals may be related to any 
topic of pervasive computing. Please contact the Workshops Chair Antonio
Krüger ([log in to unmask]) if you would like to propose a workshop.
There will be a workshop on Location- and Context-Awareness (LoCA 2005)
at the German Aero Space Center (DLR) near Munich on the 12th and 13th
of May 2005, see http://loca2005.context-aware.org/ for details.

Doctoral Colloquium
A doctoral colloquium will be held directly before the main conference,
as a forum for PhD students to present, discuss and defend their work in
progress. This will build on the huge success of the PERVASIVE 2004
doctoral colloquium held at the University of Linz, at which 28 PhD
students from around the world discussed their work with an
international group of advisors selected from across the pervasive
computing community
