Research contributions are solicited in all areas pertinent to pervasive computing and communications, including:
- Advances in pervasive systems and infrastructures: middleware systems and services; large-scale data management for pervasive computing; clouds, cloudlets, and fog computing; integrations of smartphones in pervasive experiences; applications of device-to-device coordination.
- Theories, models, and algorithms: context modeling and reasoning; adaptive and context-aware computing; activity recognition; programing paradigms; applied machine learning; cognitive computing techniques.
- Domain-specific challenges and novel applications: urban/mobile crowdsensing & intelligence; pervasive technologies for healthcare; cyber-physical pervasive computing; innovative pervasive computing applications.
- Intersections of pervasive computing with: social networks; opportunistic networks; Internet of things; sensor networks; RFID systems; big data.
- New techniques for user-level concerns : participatory and social sensing; trust, security, and privacy; user interface, interaction, and persuasion; social networking and pervasive computing.
- Technological innovations: architectures, protocols, and technologies for pervasive communications; mobile and wearable computing systems and services; smart devices and intelligent environments; positioning and tracking technologies.
Contributions can be analytical, empirical, technological, methodological, or a combination of these. Papers reporting strong systems engineering contributions backed by solid and appropriate evaluations are strongly encouraged. The impact of the contributions should be demonstrated in the context of pervasive computing and communications. Papers applying known techniques from other fields must clearly demonstrate substantial novelty or pervasive computing impact.
