International Conference on
Pervasive Computing and Communications
Mannheim, Germany, March 29 - April 2, 2010
PerCom 2010 will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers to
present their latest research in the field of pervasive computing and communications.
Real experimentation has proven to be a fundamental methodology to evaluate pervasive computing
and communication systems. Early prototyping is an outstanding way to understand real user requirements
and help adoption of pervasive technologies by the mass market.
The demo session showing real-systems prototypes at work will naturally complement the technical
session, thus stimulating discussions among attendees.
Demonstration proposals from both academia and industry are sought.
Authors of all accepted demos will be invited to provide a
- SHORT DEMO PAPER (3 pages) describing the demo features.
- Short demo papers will be included in the PerCom proceedings.
- PerCom 2010 will grant a "Best Demo Award" based on both the
- technical contribution and the innovation.
- At least one author of each accepted demo is required
- to register and present their demo at the conference.
Demo proposals must show a significant relevance to pervasive computing and networking. The page limit
is 3 IEEE conference proceedings format 2-column pages (including references, figures and tables, at
least 10pt font). All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process.
Demo proposals must describe the demo research framework, and what PerCom attendees will be able to
enjoy and experiment. The proposal MUST also include the technical requirements for the demo. These
pieces of information will be taken into consideration, together with the technical value of the
proposed demo, in the review process to ensure the demo feasibility within the PerCom program and
the potential impact on the attendees.
Demo proposals must be submitted as a SINGLE PDF FILE via e-mail to the demo co-chairs
(email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org), with Subject: PerCom 2010 Demo Submission.

- Ad Hoc networks for pervasive communications
