The PerCom Demo Session features (i) prototypes that convey groundbreaking ideas or novel concepts, (ii) high-quality demonstrations of pervasive computing systems that provide new scientifically relevant insights, and (iii) innovative applications used to convey original contributions. We invite proposals for such demonstrations from both industry and academia.


Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Context-aware computing
  • Smart devices and their integration
  • Integrated pervasive computing systems (smart spaces, smart cities, etc.)
  • Adaptive and autonomic computing
  • Mobile/wireless computing systems and services
  • Pervasive computing for smart infrastructures (e-energy, e-mobility etc.)
  • Energy-efficient and sustainable pervasive computing
  • Opportunistic communication for pervasive systems
  • Positioning and tracking technologies
  • Sensing and actuation for pervasive systems
  • Wearable computers
  • Trust, security and privacy solutions for pervasive systems
  • Novel user interfaces and user interaction in pervasive systems
  • Pervasive computing aspects of social networking
  • Virtual immersive communications
  • Standards and interfaces for pervasive computing

Submission Guidelines

Prospective contributors are expected to submit a demo proposal in the form of a short technical paper (maximum length of 3 pages, in IEEE PerCom format) via the EDAS submission site. The short demo paper must illustrate the research contribution, practical setup, and technical requirements of the demonstration. Demo papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted demo papers will be included in the PerCom proceedings. At least one author of each accepted demo proposal is required to register and present the demo at the conference.

Evaluation criteria for demonstration proposals include: (1) extent and significance of the research contribution; (2) relevance to PerCom; (3) potential impact on the audience; (4) quality of the proposed implementation; (5) presentation quality.
