            Call for Papers

First International Workshop on Sustainable Pervasive Computing- SPC'04 a one day workshop in conjunction with PERVASIVE 2004
Second International Conference on Pervasive Computing 2004
21-23 April, University of Linz/Vienna, Austria

SPC'04: http://diuf.unifr.ch/pai/events/spc2004/

The technology of pervasive computing is now ready for a large-scale everyday use. Such a widespreading may have a strong impact on society and environment, by the way equipments and technical infrastructures for everyday life will be designed, and by the way the social and environmental issues of technology will be managed. Despite the promising facilities it will bring on, pervasive computing has indeed some darks sides, which must be early taken into account if we want to achieve a sustainable development.
The goal of the workshop is then to bring together interdisciplinary contributors for enabling to set up the foundations of a sustainable pervasive computing. People from any discipline concerned by pervasive computing deployement (e.g. from computer science, business, urbanism, architecture, mobility, health care and medicine, energy, waste management, social science, ethics, technology assessment, law, etc), and interested in sharing their works, experiences, or ideas for reaching this goal are welcome to the workshop.

Two aspects will be considered :

1. Analysis and evaluation of the implications of pervasive
   computing for the society and the environment;

This aspect may involve points of view on pervasive computing coming from humanities and technology assessment, together with computer science and concerned application fields for including topics like the following (non limited list):

* social opportunities and risks:

  privacy, security, cultural aspects, digital divide, rebound effects;

* health opportunities and risks:

  physiological impacts, cognitive impacts, rebound effects;

* environmental opportunities and risks:

  e-waste, energy demand, rebound effects.

2. Design and applications for a sustainable pervasive computing.

This aspect may be handled through contributions coming from the various engineering fields concerned by the applicative issues of pervasive computing (including computer science) for addressing topics like the following (non limited list):

* e-business:

  supply chain management, transport efficiency, privacy;

* mobility:

  traffic management, security, energy efficiency;

* smart building:

  architecture, energy efficiency;

* urbanism:

  urban planning, public infrastructure;

* health care:

  personal health monitoring, hospital management, surgery applications.

Abstract submission:            January 29, 2004
Notification of acceptance:     February 16, 2004
Final papers due (for long papers): March 15, 2004

email: spc2004@unifr.ch

The workshop is expected to include papers describing either scientific research related to technology evaluation or design, as well as applicative issues, and experiments.

Authors from the various concerned domains are invited to submit original contributions under the form of 1 to 2 pages abstracts.

All papers must be written in English. Submissions are sollicited in the IEEE transaction format.
See http://diuf.unifr.ch/pai/events/spc2004/
Papers must be not under review elsewhere. All submissions will be selected based on their quality and relevance to the workshop.

All papers will be published in a technology assessment or academic series.

Submissions, in PDF format, must be emailed to spc2004@unifr.ch.
Please include the authors' names and affiliations in the email body. You will receive a confirmation within 24 hours.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Pervasive Computing - Pervasive 2004  (www.pervasive2004.org), 21-23 April 2004, in Linz/Vienna, Austria
