Call for papers

Pervasive 2010, the Eight International Conference on Pervasive
Computing, will be held 17-20 May 2010 in Helsinki, Finland,
www.pervasive2010.org

This annual conference provides a premier forum for researchers to
present their latest results in all areas related to architecture,
design, implementation, application and evaluation of pervasive
computing as it integrates into our lives.

Pervasive 2010 builds on the success of previous conferences in this
series held in Zurich (August 2002), in Linz/Vienna (April 2004), in
Munich (May 2005), in Dublin (May 2006), Toronto (May 2007), Sydney (May
2008) and Nara (May 2009). Pervasive 2010 will include a highly
selective single-track program for technical papers.


We welcome high quality papers, either Full Papers (max 18 pages) or
Notes (max 8 pages), that describe original and unpublished research
advancing the state of the art in mobile and pervasive computing,
including but not limited to the following topics:

* Technologies and devices for pervasive computing
* Software aspects including middleware and operating systems for
  pervasive computing
* Tools, infrastructures, architectures and techniques for
  designing, implementing & deploying pervasive computing systems
* Applications of pervasive computing technologies
* Interfaces and modes of interactions between people and pervasive
  computing devices, applications or environments
* Evaluations and evaluation methods for assessing the impact of
  pervasive computing devices, applications or environments
* Privacy, security, trust & social issues and implications of
  pervasive computing


Both Full Papers and Notes submissions should provide important and ripe
contributions in the field. Submissions can be accompanied by a video
and/or demo in the programme.

Contributions should be relevant and grounded within Pervasive computing
and authors should write assuming a broad interdisciplinary Pervasive
computing audience.

Note that papers should not have been previously published or be
concurrently under submission for publication for any other conference,
journal, workshop or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN, or DOI
number.


Author guidelines

All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive 2010
program committee and additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant
research communities.

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance
of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and
presentation. If a submitted paper may appear to overlap with previously
published or simultaneously reviewed work, the authors should email
the Program Co-Chairs directly to explain how the new work represents
a unique and substantial new contribution.

Full Papers should include a thorough survey of related work positioning
the contribution, a comprehensive, detailed and comprehensible
explanation of a device, system, study, theory or method (sufficient for
replicability), and compelling validation of the work. Full Papers can
be up to 18 pages in the LNCS format:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0

Notes should be succinct but complete contributions. Notes will be
reviewed in the same process with Full Papers, and will appear in the
proceedings and the conference programme. Notes can be up to 8 pages in
the LNCS format:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0

Successful submissions typically break new ground and provide
substantial support for results and conclusions. The different length
of Full Papers (18 pages) and Notes (8 pages) allows authors to choose
an appropriate submission category based on the amount of contribution
or scope of the work. Consider carefully whether a Full Paper or Note
submission is more appropriate, as there will be no mechanism for
re-considering a submitted Full Paper as a Note.

All paper submissions will be handled electronically. The submission
process will be described on the Submission Page:
http://www.pervasive2010.org/submission.html

Paper submissions must be anonymised to facilitate blind review. Authors
are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimise
oblique and overt references and citations that may reveal the identity
of the authors or their institutions. Relevant references to an author's
previous research should not be suppressed but instead referenced in a
neutral way.
