The 4th International Symposium on
    Security and Multimodality in Pervasive Environments (SMPE-10)

                Perth, Australia, 20-23 April 2010

                   In conjunction with AINA-10
Pervasive computing environments (PE) present specific peculiarities with
respect to aspects like security and multimodality. As a matter of fact, the
accessibility level of a virtual environment can definitively be improved by
natural interfaces and multimodal interaction systems, which offer users the
freedom to select from multiple modes of interaction with services and
permit to break down barriers about human-computer interaction making
communication intuitive and spontaneous. On the other hand, while enlarging
and easing the ways to access to the environment, security threads arise and
the environment must be properly equipped in order to protect itself from
malicious attacks and/or from wrong actions performed by inexpert users.
SMPE-10 will be held in conjunction with AINA-10, in Perth, Australia, 20-23
April 2010.
SMPE-10 is the next event in a series of highly successful International
Symposium on Security and Multimodality in Pervasive Environments (SMPE),
previously held as SMPE-08 (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, July 2008),
SMPE-07 (Nice, France, September 2007).
