CALL FOR PAPERS
******************************************************************
The 20th International Conference on Pervasive Computing and
Communications (PerCom 2022), March 21-25, 2022
Pisa, Italy

******************************************************************

Call for Papers

PerCom is the premier annual scholarly venue in pervasive computing and communications. Pervasive computing has found its way into many commercial systems due to tremendous advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and topics such as wireless networking, mobile and distributed computing, sensor systems, ambient intelligence, and smart devices.

SCOPE

PerCom 2022 solicits research contributions in all areas pertinent to pervasive computing and communications, especially those that cross traditional research boundaries. In particular, we target:

Advances in pervasive systems and infrastructures: middleware systems and services; data engineering for pervasive computing; cloud, fog and edge computing; integrations of smartphones in pervasive experiences; applications of device-to-device coordination.

Theories, models, and algorithms: context modeling and reasoning; adaptive computing; activity and emotion recognition; programming paradigms; applied machine learning; deep machine learning; federated learning; causal learning; cognitive computing; complex networks; spatio-temporal modeling techniques.

Domain-specific challenges and novel applications: urban/mobile crowdsensing & intelligence; PerCom for healthcare and well-being; smart homes and virtual assistants; innovative PerCom applications (e.g., sports analytics, crime prevention, pervasive nowcasting).

Intersections of PerCom with: opportunistic networks; IoT and sensor systems; RFID systems; pervasive data science, and cyber physical systems.

New techniques for user-level concerns: participatory and social sensing; trust, security, and privacy; user interface, interaction, and persuasion; online and offline social networking and pervasive computing.

Technological innovations: architectures, protocols, and technologies for pervasive communications; energy-harvesting, self-powered, or battery-less systems; mobile and wearable systems; smart devices and environments; positioning and tracking technologies; wireless crowd-recharging; device-free human sensing.

Contributions can be analytical, empirical, technological, methodological, or a combination. Papers reporting strong systems engineering contributions backed by solid and appropriate evaluations are strongly encouraged. The impact of the contributions should be demonstrated in the context of pervasive computing and communications applications.

IMPORTANT DATES

Paper registration in EDAS: September 27, 2021
Submission via EDAS: October 4, 2021
Notification: December 22, 2021
Camera Ready: February 5, 2022

Other important dates are here http://www.percom.org/important-dates

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Paper submission must be done for the main conference and all associated events via EDAS
(https://www.edas.info/). If you do not have an EDAS account, please, register first (it's free) via the following link https://edas.info/newPerson.php?noauth=1.  The direct submission link for PerCom 2022 is here: https://edas.info/N28655.

PerCom 2022 will follow a double-blind review process. As a result, authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions.

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Also, they must show a significant relevance to pervasive computing and communications. Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered.

The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting instructions, can be found here https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Papers must be at most 9 pages of technical content (10pt font, 2-column format), including text, figures, and tables and up to one additional page for references only.

Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. All accepted papers will be invited to submit an associated artifact abstract providing the code, data, results, etc. associated with the contribution.

BEST PAPER AWARD AND EDITORIAL FOLLOW-UPs

The best paper will receive the prestigious Mark Weiser Best Paper Award.

Papers of particular merit will be considered for a special issue of the Elsevier journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC).
