Call for Workshop Proposals
IEEE PerCom is the premier conference for presenting academic and industrial research in pervasive computing and communications. It has reached its 12th edition with a high success in this field, continuing to propose important advances and leading solutions for innovative platforms, protocols, systems and applications for anywhere and anytime connected devices.
The PerCom 2014 Organizing Committee invites proposals for one-day workshops affiliated with the conference. The workshops will be held prior to or immediately after the main conference. Workshops should provide a venue for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and typically more focused area than at the conference itself.
Please visit http://www.percom.org to learn about earlier PerCom workshops.
Note that PerCom workshops are expected to enable stimulating discussions of state-of-the-art, emerging, visionary, and perhaps controversial topics. Workshops should be organized to promote such lively interaction. Plans to promote interaction and discussion should be clearly addressed in workshop proposals. Workshop organizers are encouraged but not required to attempt to solicit external sponsorship for the workshop.
Workshop proposals are solicited in all areas and topics pertaining to pervasive computing and communications research and applications. Workshops addressing new emerging research directions are especially welcome.
