The IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications
invites proposals for display demonstrations and industrial exhibits.
As a high-profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers
in the field of pervasive computing and communications, PerCom’05
offers a unique opportunity to showcase and discuss emerging technologies
and recent research prototypes with key researchers in the Pervasive
The demonstration session will follow the successful and well received
demonstration session of PerCom’04. Demonstrations will be
presented in a designated demonstration slot in the conference program.
The number of demos presented will be kept low in order to allow
the full attention of the conference participants.
Proposals should clearly state what the demonstrator will show.
Demonstrations should either show how pervasive computing applications
can be realized with today’s emerging technologies or focus
on one research aspect which is integrated into a demonstration.
A brief but comprehensive description of the demonstration should
address the kind of demonstration, e.g., video or prototype presentation,
the required technical equipment, e.g. Wireless LAN, a description
of the demo presentation, e.g. are visitors involved, is a prototype
presented that can be used by visitors, etc.
The proposal should place special emphasis on the key contribution,
i.e., what will visitors to the demo remember most or have learned
after the demo. A good demonstration stimulates discussions and
provides insights, e.g. into an application area or how a distinct
technology can be used for Pervasive Computing.
Demonstration proposals should address these issues in no more than
2 pages with 12pt font. Additionally, the proposal should provide
a short bio of the key person submitting the proposal. We also recommend
submitting a link to the website of the project.
Proposals should be sent via email as PDF to:
