PerCom 2012

The IEEE Pervasive Computing and Communication (PerCom) conference, entering its tenth year, is the worldwide premier scholarly venue in the areas of pervasive computing and communications. Since 2003, the conference has grown significantly in terms of quality and variety of the technical programs - it is recognized as a top tier conference by most universities and organizations across the world.

PerCom 2012 will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-the-art research in the respective fields of pervasive computing and communications. The conference will feature a diverse mixture of presentation forums including core technical sessions, keynote talks, panel discussions from worldwide experts, demonstrations, a PhD forum, and work in progress posters. The conference also hosts a number of workshops that have themselves become well recognized in the community as forums for specialized topics within the field.

The conference also provides formats to honour excellence in the field. The Mark Weiser Best Paper award, sponsored by Elsevier, will be given to authors of the PerCom's best paper. In addition, the highest quality papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of the Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal.
The 2012 conference will be held in Lugano, Switzerland. The "Monte Carlo of Switzerland" is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Switzerland, and it is the residence of an ever growing number of celebrities, entertainers and successful athletes. The lake of Lugano and the surrounding mountains provide a wide variety of outdoor activities. Lugano is, also, home to a number of historic buildings and museums.
