Work In Progress

Work-in-Progress (WiP)  Session

The Work-in-Progress (WiP) session provides an opportunity to present and discuss new challenges and visions, showcase early research results, and explore novel research directions. The specific aim of the WiP session is to provide a forum for timely presentation, discussion and feedback for novel, controversial, and thought-provoking ideas. All selected papers will be presented as posters in a special conference session following a 1-minute madness oral presentation. In addition, all selected papers will be included in the PerCom Workshops proceedings to be published by IEEE and included in the digital library.

Contributions are solicited in all areas of pervasive computing research and applications. Papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research on any aspect of pervasive computing and communications. Preliminary experimental results are appreciated.

Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative pervasive computing applications
  • Software engineering aspects of pervasive computing
  • Middleware services and agent technologies
  • Pervasive computing for smart environments and smart peer groups
  • Energy-efficient and green pervasive computing
  • Wearable systems and mobile phone sensing applications
  • Smart City systems and other pervasive computing application areas
  • Internet of Things and Cyber Physical Systems
  • Enabling technologies for pervasive systems (e.g., wireless BAN, PAN)
  • Multimodal sensing and data fusion for pervasive applications
  • Communication architectures for pervasive computing
  • Ad hoc networks for pervasive communications
  • Sensors and RFID in pervasive systems
  • Pervasive opportunistic communications and applications
  • Pervasive sensing, perception and semantic interpretation
  • Mobile peer-to-peer and distributed systems for pervasive computing
  • Adaptive, autonomic and context-aware computing
  • Positioning and tracking technologies
  • Virtual and immersive systems for pervasive environments
  • Social and economic aspects of pervasive computing
  • New challenges and visions of pervasive systems
  • Energy Harvesting

Submission Guidelines

Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in standard IEEE proceedings format (two-column format with a 4-page limit including figures, tables, and references) in PDF format that include contact information of all the authors to the EDAS submission site.

The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the WiP Technical Program Committee. The authors of accepted papers will present their work during the main conference in a special WiP poster session and must register for the conference (at least one author must have a full registration). The papers of the WiP session will be published in the workshop proceedings of the 15th Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications.

Poster Size: The minimum is 20" x 30" (508 mm x 763 mm) up to about 25% more in each dimension.
