PerCom 2008 Call for Demonstrations

Sixth IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications

PerCom 2008 (http//

Hong Kong, March 17-21, 2008

Demonstration Proposal Submission Extended to Jan. 25, 2008

Sponsored by

IEEE, IEEE Computer Society

IEEE PerCom 2008 will be the sixth annual conference in the emerging area of pervasive computing and communications aimed at providing an exciting platform and paradigm for ubiquitous services. This emergence is a natural outcome of the tremendous advances in wireless networks, mobile computing, sensor networks, distributed computing, context-aware systems and agent technologies. PerCom 2008 will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers alike to present their latest research in the field of pervasive computing and communications.

In addition to the technical papers, PerCom 2008 invites proposals for demonstrations and industrial exhibits. Demo contributions are solicited in all areas of pervasive computing research and applications. Topics include, but are not limited to:


- Pervasive computing and communication architectures

- Smart devices and intelligent environments

- Wearable computers

- Middleware services and agent technologies

- Ad Hoc networks for pervasive communications

- Sensor and RFID in pervasive systems

- Positioning and tracking technologies

- Virtual immersive communications

- Enabling technologies (e.g., wireless BAN, PAN)

- Mobile/Wireless computing systems and services in pervasive computing

- Context aware computing

- Autonomic computing and communications

- Programming paradigms for pervasive systems

- User interfaces and interaction models

- Trust, security and privacy issues in pervasive systems

- Novel/innovative pervasive computing applications


Proposals for Demonstrations

The demonstration session will follow the successful and well received demonstration session of previous PerCom events. Demonstrations will be presented in a designated demonstration slot in the conference program. The number of demos presented will be kept low in order to allow the full attention of the conference participants.

Proposals should clearly state what the demonstrators will show. Demonstrations should either show how pervasive computing applications can be realized with today’s emerging technologies or focus on one research aspect which is integrated into a demonstration. A brief but comprehensive description of the demonstration should address the kind of demonstration, e.g., video or prototype presentation, the required technical equipment, e.g. Wireless LAN, a description of the demo presentation, e.g. are visitors involved, is a prototype presented that can be used by visitors, etc. The proposal should place special emphasis on the key contribution, i.e., what will visitors to the demo remember most or have learned after the demo. A good demonstration stimulates discussions and provides insights, e.g. into an application area or how a distinct technology can be used for Pervasive Computing. Demonstration proposals should address these issues in no more than 2 pages with 12pt font. Additionally, the proposal should provide a short bio of the key persons submitting the proposal. We also recommend submitting a link to the website of the project and/or organization. A poster presentation about the demo will be requested to accompany the final accepted demonstrator.

Proposals should be sent via email (with Subject: “PerCom 2008 Demo Submission”) as PDF files to the demonstration chairs listed below who will use a non-blind review process to consider all submissions.
