Call for Pervasive 2011 Conference Papers

Pervasive 2011, the Ninth International Conference on Pervasive Computing,
will be held June 12-15, 2011 in San Francisco, California.

The paper submission deadline is Monday October 11, 2010 at
midnight US/Pacific time.

Pervasive is a premier international conference for cutting edge research on
the architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of
pervasive computing technologies. The conference places strong emphasis on
both the technological innovation aspects of the field of pervasive computing
as well as the ways in which these emerging technologies affect and influence
everyday life.

For further details of the conference see:

This year’s conference aims to continue the tradition of innovation and
excellence in research established by previous Pervasive conferences. We
welcome high quality papers, either in Full Paper format (max 18 pages) or
Note format (max 8 pages), that describe original and unpublished research
advancing the state of the art in pervasive computing, including but not
limited to the following topics:

- Technologies, devices, and sensors for pervasive computing

- Tools and systems for designing, building, and deploying pervasive computing

- Evaluations and evaluation methods for assessing the impact of pervasive
  computing devices, applications or environments

- Studies of pervasive computing technologies and deployments

- Formative and evaluative work of pervasive computing applications

- Interfaces and modes of interactions between people and pervasive computing
  devices, applications or environments

- Privacy, security, trust & social issues and implications of pervasive

Both Full Paper and Notes submissions should offer substantial and original
contributions relevant to the field of Pervasive Computing. Papers should be
grounded in existing Pervasive Computing literature and knowledge, and
should be written for an interdisciplinary Pervasive Computing audience.

Papers and notes should not have been previously published or be concurrently
under submission for publication for any other conference, journal, workshop
or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN, or DOI number.

Author guidelines

Papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive 2011 program
committee and additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of the
contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. If a
submitted paper overlaps in content with previously published or
simultaneously reviewed work, the paper should make explicit how the work
offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been
published or submitted.

Full Papers should include a thorough survey of related work positioning the
contribution, a comprehensive, detailed and comprehensible explanation of a
device, system, study, theory or method (sufficient for replicability), and
compelling validation of the work. Full Papers can be up to 18 pages in LNCS
format http://www.springer.com/computer+science/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.

Notes should be succinct but complete contributions. Notes will be reviewed in
the same process with Full Papers, and will appear in the proceedings and the
conference program. Notes can be up to 8 pages in LNCS format

Successful submissions typically break new ground and provide substantial
support for results and conclusions. The different length of Full Papers (18
pages) and Notes (8 pages) allows authors to choose an appropriate submission
category based on the size of the contribution or scope of the work. Consider
carefully whether a Full Paper or Note submission is more appropriate, as
submissions will only be considered for the category in which they are
submitted, (i.e. Full Paper submissions that are found to have small
contributions will not be considered for acceptance in Note format.)

All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Details on the
submission process will be available soon!

Paper submissions must be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are
encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize oblique and
overt references and citations that may reveal the identity of the authors or
their institutions. However, to facilitate proper review, references to an
author's previous research should not be suppressed, anonymized, or omitted. 
Instead, references to previous research should be presented in the text in a
neutral fashion that does not identify it as the author’s own work.
