Call for papers

EXTENDED DEADLINE: December 4, 2015

Submission deadline: November 27, 2015

The key components of many pervasive systems and applications are already
deployed in the form of ubiquitous commercial products carried by humans.
Human mobility makes it possible for such key components to interact,
promoting cooperation and sharing of content, services and resources.
Smartphones, tablet PCs, and other personal devices act as mobile computing
elements able to gather information about the surrounding environment
according to the mobility of users. In other situations these devices
operate as mobile nodes of the computing and/or networking infrastructure,
where interaction and communication occur opportunistically.

The goal of PerMoby is to explore the impact of human mobility on the
achievement of the pervasive computing vision.  The focus is on pervasive
applications, systems, and protocols where mobility plays an active role
in achieving the end goals.

Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of
human-centric applications and systems are solicited. Papers describing
prototype implementations and deployment of such applications and systems
are particularly welcome. The submission of papers on controversial issues
is also encouraged. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • pervasive systems and applications based on (or influenced by) human mobility
  • mobile phone sensing applications and systems
  • opportunistic and participatory sensing, and anything in between
  • opportunistic computing
  • pervasive systems with humans in the loop
  • wearable sensing systems
  • mobility models
  • distributed computing approaches that rely on human mobility
  • impact of human mobility on wireless communication
  • green pervasive applications that leverage human mobility
  • mobility aware protocols
  • opportunistic networking

Paper submission

Papers should contain original material and should not be previously
published or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.  Manuscripts
are limited to a maximum of 6 pages in IEEE conference format. Accepted
papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press in the combined
PerCom 2014 Workshops Proceedings and will appear on IEEE Xplore. At least
one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop
to present the paper. There will be no separate registration for workshops, but one single registration will cover both conference and workshops participation. It is mandatory that at least one author will register and will participate to illustrate the paper during technical sessions of workshops. Failure to present the
paper at the workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from
the proceedings as well as from IEEE Xplore.  Paper submission will be
via EDAS.
