Call for Papers

IEEE PerCom 2005 will be the third annual conference on the emerging area of pervasive computing and communications aimed at providing an exciting platform and paradigm for all the time, everywhere services. This emergence is a natural outcome of the tremendous advances in wireless networks, mobile computing, sensor networks, distributed computing, and agent technologies. PerCom 2005 will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers alike to present their latest research in the field of pervasive computing and communications. Proposals to organize Workhops are also invited. PerCom 2005 will also feature industry exhibits and demonstrations.

Feature Topics:
Contributions are solicited in all areas of pervasive computing research and applications. Topics include, but not limited to:

• Pervasive computing architectures
• Intelligent environments
• Wearable computers
• Smart devices and smart spaces
• Service discovery mechanisms
• Middleware services and Agent technologies
• Sensors and actuators
• Positioning and tracking technologies
• Integration of wired and wireless networks
• Personal area networks
• Mobile / wireless computing systems and services
• Context based and implicit computing
• Speech processing / advanced computer vision
• User interfaces and interaction models
• Wireless/mobile service management and delivery
