    Update (March 11, 2020)

    As of today (March 11, 2020) PerCom 2020 is still scheduled to happen March 23-27 but in an entirely virtual format. Given the options of canceling PerCom 2020 entirely or shifting to a remote format, we have chosen the latter. The schedule for PerCom 2020 will remain nearly unchanged from what is published here. There may be some minor modifications as we figure out the best online format for each event, but if you are a presenter, you should be prepared to present at your allotted time.

    We have fielded several questions about postponing the conference and concerns about the impact of timezones on remote participation. Rescheduling in the next few months is uncertain, and by late summer, we start to affect PerCom 2021. We understand that the impact of timezones is not trivial and also ask you to consider that full participation from all attendees is a crucial component to ensuring that PerCom 2020 is a success, especially given the difficult circumstances we face. Our hope is that you can arrange your schedule in a way that is similar to what it would have been if you had traveled to Austin as planned. We are working hard to develop ways to help keep everyone engaged, such that attending all sessions is a seamless and pleasant (and even fun!) experience. Let's use this challenge as an opportunity to demonstrate that the PerCom community can adapt to even the most challenging of circumstances.

    More information about logistics of the remote meeting will be forthcoming, but please feel free to reach out with more questions. To reiterate, PerCom 2020 will happen online, March 23-27.

    PerCom 2020

    IEEE PerCom is the premier conference for presenting scholarly research in pervasive computing and communications. Advances in this field are leading to innovative platforms, protocols, systems, and applications for always-on, always-connected services. In 2020, PerCom will visit Austin, the capital of Texas and the eleventh largest city in the US. It is known as the “live music capital of the world”, is famous for its barbecue, and is a progressive tech-centric town.
