The IEEE Pervasive Computing and Communication (PerCom) conference, entering its 11th 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 2013 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 honor 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 2013 conference will be held in San Diego, California, USA at the Kona Kai Resort. San Diego is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the USA due to its mild weather and a variety of tourist attractions including beautiful beaches, sprawling Balboa Park, SeaWorld and the city’s world-famous zoo.
