Call for Workshop Papers
------------------------

We are happy to announce that we have eight workshops having various
and emerging topics collocated with Pervasive 2009.  We delightedly
invite you to submit your ongoing works as short papers or position
papers.  Workshops provide a forum for discussing areas of special
interest within pervasive computing with like-minded researchers and
practitioners.  Workshops afford participants the opportunity to
examine an area with a selected focus in an open environment for the
free exchange of perspectives.

The day-long workshops will be held prior to the main conference on
Monday, May 11, 2009.  The followings are brief information for the
eight workshops.  Please note that submission due dates and publishing
style of papers are various according to individual workshops.
Please visit the workshops page at

----------------
Call for Videos
----------------

    Videos are an effective tool to showcase research results, to
inspire other researchers, and to educate the general public about the
latest developments in Pervasive Computing. With the category of
Research Videos, Pervasive 2009 seeks research contributions, future
visions, project descriptions, and concepts of pervasive computing
technologies, systems and applications. The conference particularly
values practical experience with design, deployment and use of
pervasive systems and applications, and investigation of exciting and
inspiring ideas and technologies.

    To be accepted, a video must be of an appropriate length for the
content. It must contain no material subject to copyright (i.e., that
the authors cannot grant Pervasive 2009 the right to redistribute
freely), and must be easily comprehensible to English
speakers. Finally, an accepted video must be standalone, i.e., the
video itself (with audio soundtrack) must describe the work
sufficiently, without requiring the viewer to read the
abstract. Videos will be judged primarily on their communication of
interesting research content (assuming appropriate technical quality).

    Each research video must be accompanied by a short paper
describing the key research contribution. The paper should be written
in a way that it can be understood by readers who have not or will not
see the video.

+ Submission and Review Process

    Authors MUST submit A URL TO THE VIDEO (NOT THE VIDEO ITSELF!) and
a PDF file of the accompanying short paper to pervasive2009video [AT]
digitalcity.gr.jp. Videos need to be submitted in mpeg (MPEG1/2) or
AVI (MPEG-4) as PAL or NTSC (The final camera-ready version must be
submitted as NTSC). The accompanying paper must be no longer than 4
pages in LNCS Format.

    Accepted videos will be shown in a special video session at
Pervasive 2009. Accepted contributions (videos and accompanying short
papers) will be published in the Pervasive 2009 Adjunct Proceedings.
The copyright for videos remains with the authors. If authors have any
queries regarding potential submissions, contact the following video
chair.

+ Critical Dates

    * January 26, 2009: Submission deadline
    * March 1, 2009: Author notification
    * March 20, 2009: Camera-ready paper deadline

------------------------
Call for Demonstrations
------------------------

    The category of research demonstrations offers a unique
opportunity to showcase research prototypes, and to discuss them with
an international audience of experts in pervasive computing. To
promote this, Pervasive 2009 is seeking interesting and engaging
demonstrations of pervasive computing technologies. Proposers are
invited to submit Research Demonstrations under the general topics of
the conference. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the
following :

    * New technologies and devices for pervasive computing
    * New interfaces and modes of interactions between humans and
      pervasive computing devices, applications or environments
    * New tools, architectures, middleware and operating systems for
      designing, implementing & deploying pervasive computing
      applications
    * Industrial-strength use cases of pervasive technologies and
      applications
    * Evaluations, evaluation methods and tools, for assessing the
      impact of pervasive computing devices, applications or
      environments
    * Applications and devices relatd to privacy, security, copyright,
      trust and social issues and implications of pervasive computing
    * New applications of pervasive computing technologies, which will
      have impacts on society, businesses and our human lives.

+ Submission and Review Process

    We encourage combining a research demonstration with a short paper
that describes the contribution and as an anchor point for future
reference. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format, up to 4 pages in
length and conform to the Springer-Verlag LNCS style. All
demonstration submissions will be handled using an electronic
submission system. Please submit your demonstration paper to EDAS.

    The authors should also provide a brief sketch of the planned
demonstration on an additional page. Specific requirements concerning
space, power, network, and security should be stated. It is planned
that wireless internet access will be provided. Accepted contributions
will be published in the adjunct proceedings of Pervasive 2009.

Call for Doctoral Colloquium Submissions
-----------------------------------------

    PhD students and candidates are invited to present, discuss and
defend their work-in-progress or preliminary results in an
international and renowned audience of researchers and developers in
the ubiquitous computing field at PERVASIVE 2009. PhD students and
candidates at all stages in the process are invited to submit a thesis
position paper. Participants will be expected to give short, informal
presentations of their work during the Colloquium, to be followed by a
discussion. The submission should clearly state:

    * the original key idea / hypothesis of the thesis
    * the problem domain and the specific problem addressed
    * an overview of related work in the area of the PhD work
    * methodological approach
    * research carried out
    * the contribution made in the field of ubiquitous computing
      (for early work, state the expected contribution)

+ Submission and Review Process

    Submissions (up to 8 pages) should be formatted according to the
guidelines of Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science [LNCS
format] and should be submitted as PDF files through [EDAS
system]. The submissions will be reviewed and based on these reviews
approximately 8 participants for the doctoral colloquium will be
selected. The accepted thesis position papers will be published in the
adjunct proceedings of PERVASIVE 2009.
