Call for Pervasive 2011 Videos

Videos are an effective tool to showcase research results, to document
experiments and datasets, to inspire other researchers, and to educate the
general public about the latest developments in Pervasive Computing.

With the video submissions, Pervasive 2011 seeks contributions within (but
not limited to) these topics:

    * Research contributions
    * Future visions
    * Project descriptions, experiment and dataset documentations
    * Concepts of pervasive computing technologies
    * Systems and applications

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.

Note that a video can be submitted as a supplement to a paper (as submitted in
the Paper or Notes track) or as a standalone contribution. Each research video
must be accompanied by a short paper describing the key research contribution.
The paper should be written in a way that it can be understood by readers who
have not or will not see the video.

Submission and Review Process

To be accepted, a video must be of an appropriate length for the content. We
recommend videos to be no longer than 8 minutes.

It must contain no material subject to copyright (i.e., that the authors
cannot grant Pervasive 2011 the right to redistribute freely), and must be
easily comprehensible to English speakers.

An accepted video must be standalone, i.e., the video itself (with audio
soundtrack or subtitles) must describe the work sufficiently, without requiring
the viewer to read the abstract. Videos will be judged primarily on their
communication of interesting research content (assuming appropriate technical

of the accompanying short paper to pervasive11.videos [AT] gmail.org. Videos
need to be submitted in mpeg (MPEG1/2) or AVI (MPEG-4) as PAL or NTSC. The
accompanying paper must be no longer than 4 pages in LNCS Format.


Accepted videos will be shown at Pervasive 2011 within appropriate tracks. In
addition, a 5min slot after the video will be available for questions/answers.
We request one of the authors to be present when the video is projected.

Accepted contributions (videos and accompanying short papers) will be
published in the Pervasive Adjunct Proceedings on a USB stick. The copyright
for videos remains with the authors. If authors have any queries regarding
potential submissions, contact the video chairs.
