The 2nd International Symposium on Security and Multimodality in
Pervasive Environments

July 21-25, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

In Conjunction wih MOBIQUITOUS 2008

Pervasive computing environments 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-08 will be held in conjunction with Mobiquitous 2008, in Dublin,
Ireland, July 21-25, 2008. As for SMPE-07, best papers will be proposed
for the publication in a journal special issue (pending)
