Work in Progress

8th IEEE International Conference on
Pervasive Computing and Communications
PerCom 2010
Mannheim, Germany, March 29 - April 2, 2010

Extended Submission Deadline: December 21, 2009

The work-in-progress (WiP) session, included in PerCom for the fifth year, gives its participants an opportunity to present and discuss early and emerging results and bring about novel research questions, approaches, and directions. The specific aim of the WiP session is to provide a forum for timely presentation, discussion and feedback for novel, controversial, and thought provoking ideas. All selected papers will be presented as posters in a special WiP conference session and included in PerCom workshop proceedings to be published by IEEE and included in the digital library

Contributions are solicited in all areas of pervasive computing research and applications. Papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research on any aspect of pervasive computing and communications. Novel approaches and results are especially sought for as is ongoing experimentation.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative pervasive computing applications
  • Software engineering aspects of pervasive computing
  • Middleware services and agent technologies
  • Human computer interaction
  • Social and economics aspects of pervasive computing
  • Wearable systems
  • Ambient ecologies
  • Multimodal sensing and context for pervasive applications
  • Pervasive sensing, perception and semantic interpretation
  • Pervasive opportunistic communications and applications
  • Enabling technologies for pervasive systems (e.g., wireless BAN, PAN)
  • Positioning and tracking technologies
  • Virtual and immersive systems, cognitive pervasive architectures
  • Adaptive, autonomic and context-aware computing
  • Mobile/Wireless computing systems and services in pervasive computing
  • Energy-efficient and green pervasive computing
  • Communication architectures for pervasive computing
  • Ad hoc networks for pervasive communications
  • Sensors and RFID in pervasive systems
  • Social and economic models for pervasive systems

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in standard IEEE proceedings format (two-column format with a 4-page limit including figures, tables, and references) in PDF format that include contact information of all the authors to the submission site

If you have any questions, please send email to

The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the WiP Program Committee. The authors of accepted papers will present their work during the main conference in a special WiP poster session and must register for the conference. The papers of the WiP session will be published in the proceedings of the Eighth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications.
