CALL FOR PAPERS
                                    PerCom 2013
     IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications
                              18-22 March 2013, San Diego, USA

IEEE PerCom, now in its eleventh edition, is established as the
premier annual scholarly venue in the areas of pervasive computing and
communications. Pervasive computing and communications has evolved
into an active area of research and development, due to the tremendous
advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and topics including
wireless networking, mobile and distributed computing, sensor systems,
RFID technology, and the ubiquitous mobile phone.

PerCom 2013 will be held in San Diego, "America's finest city", famous
for its climate, its beaches, and numerous tourist attractions. PerCom
2013 will provide a leading edge, scholarly forum for researchers,
engineers, and students alike to share their state-of-the art research
and developmental work in the broad areas of pervasive computing and
communications. The conference will feature a diverse mixture of
interactive forums: core technical sessions of high quality
cutting-edge research articles; targeted workshops on exciting topics;
live demonstrations of pervasive computing in action; insightful
keynote speeches; panel discussions from domain experts; and posters
of budding ideas.

Research contributions are solicited in all areas pertinent to
pervasive computing and communications, including:
	- Innovative pervasive computing applications
	- Context modeling and reasoning
	- Data management for pervasive computing
	- Programming paradigms for pervasive systems
	- Software evolution and maintenance in pervasive systems
	- Middleware for pervasive services and applications
	- Adaptive, autonomic and context-aware computing
	- Mobile/wearable computing systems and services in pervasive computing
	- Energy-efficient and green pervasive computing
	- Communication architectures for pervasive computing
	- Ad hoc networks for pervasive communications
	- Pervasive opportunistic communications and applications 
	- Enabling technologies for pervasive systems (e.g., wireless BAN, PAN)
	- Positioning and tracking technologies 
	- Sensors and RFIDs in pervasive systems
	- Multimodal sensing and context for pervasive applications
	- Participatory, opportunistic and social sensing
	- Smart devices and intelligent environments 
	- Trust, security and privacy issues in pervasive systems 
	- User interface, interaction, and persuasion
	- Virtual immersive communications 
	- Pervasive computing aspects of social networks 
	- Social and economic models for pervasive systems 

Workshops and Affiliated Events

Many workshops will be held in conjunction with the main
conference. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE
digital libraries (Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE
PerCom. As in the past, PerCom 2013 will also feature a PhD Forum,
Demonstrations and a Work-in-Progress Session.  Please visit the
conference website for details.

Best paper award

The best paper will receive the prestigious Mark Weiser best paper
award. Papers of particular merit will be considered for a special
issue of the Elsevier journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC).

Submission Guidelines 

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for
publication. Also, they must show a significant relevance to pervasive
computing and networking. Guidelines for preparing and submitting the
manuscript will be made available on the conference website. All
papers will be managed electronically through EDAS. Submitted papers
will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical
Program Committee.
