Demo session

The IEEE Pervasive Computing and Communication (PerCom) conference, entering its 17th year, is one of the premier scholarly venues in the areas of pervasive computing and communications. The PerCom Demo session provides a venue for the latest breakthroughs in pervasive computing to be presented live to the research community. Demos ranging from examples of working prototypes, novel applications, groundbreaking ideas, and live experiments related to PerCom are all welcome. In particular, we encourage demos from industrial researchers who are leading the way in pushing pervasive technology into the hands of the public.

A "Best Demo Award" will be presented based on research value, originality, and presentation.



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

  • Big (Sensor) data

  • Anticipatory computing

  • Context-aware computing

  • Mobile payments

  • Wearable computers

  • Smart devices and their integration

  • Positioning and tracking technologies

  • Integrated pervasive computing systems (smart spaces, smart cities, etc.)

  • 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

  • Sensing and actuation for pervasive systems

  • Trust, security and privacy solutions for pervasive systems

  • Novel user interfaces and user interaction in pervasive systems


Submission Guidelines

  • The demo proposals will be peer-reviewed. The evaluation criteria include: (1) extent and significance of a prototype conveying new research ideas or compelling novel applications; (2) relevance to PerCom; (3) potential impact on the audience; (4) quality of the proposed implementation; (5) presentation quality.
  • Prospective contributors are expected to turn in a demo proposal in the form of a short technical paper (no more than 3 pages) using the PerCom templates. The short paper must illustrate the research contribution of the demo, the practical setup, and the technical requirements. Short demo papers will be included in the PerCom proceedings.
  • Demo proposals must be submitted through EDAS submission site:
  •  At least one author of each accepted demo proposal is required to register and present their demo at the conference.
