PerCom Discussions

Call For Demos

PerCom 2011 will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers to present their latest research in the field of pervasive computing and communications.

Real experimentation has proven to be a fundamental methodology to evaluate pervasive computing and communication systems. Early prototyping is an outstanding way to understand real user requirements and help adoption of pervasive technologies by the mass market.

The demo session showing real-systems prototypes at work will naturally complement the technical session, thus stimulating discussions among attendees.

Demonstration proposals from both academia and industry are sought.

Authors of all accepted demos will be invited to:

  • Provide a SHORT DEMO PAPER (3 pages) describing the demo features.
  • Short demo papers will be included in the PerCom proceedings.
  • PerCom 2011 will grant one "Best Demo Award" based on both technical contribution and innovation.
  • At least one author of each accepted demo is required to register and present their demo at the conference.

Submission Guidelines:
Demo proposals must show a significant relevance to pervasive computing and networking. The page limit is 3 IEEE conference proceedings format 2-column pages (including references, figures and tables, at least 10pt font). All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process.

Demo proposals must describe the demo research framework, and what PerCom attendees will be able to enjoy and experiment. The proposal MUST also include the technical requirements for the demo. These pieces of information will be taken into consideration, together with the technical value of the proposed demo, in the review process to ensure the demo feasibility within the PerCom program and the potential impact on the attendees.

Demo proposals must be submitted as a SINGLE PDF FILE via e-mail to the demo co-chairs ( and, with Subject: PerCom 2011 Demo Submissions.
