PerCol 2011 : Second IEEE Workshop on Pervasive Collaboration and Social Networking
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
The rapid rise of online social communities has created a new paradigm for personal networking. In a logical - and rapid progression - many social communities are now going mobile, using smart phones or other wireless devices, often in parallel to stationary PCs. A recent comScore study revealed that in 2009 already 30% of smartphone users accessed social networks via their mobile devices.
As a result, Collaboration and social networking functionality is more and more tied together and creates a new social interaction experience for the participants. This experience becomes more and more pervasive since social networking platforms and applications are available on a large set of computing devices, being usable at any time and any place.
The aim of the PerCol workshop is to bring together researchers from the areas of mobile and pervasive computing, social networking, and collaboration to explore the research challenges, potentials and business perspective of future pervasive interaction based on social networking technology.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Novel types of collaboration in social networks
The role of location and proximity for social software
Security aspects of pervasive social networks
Real-life use case experiences (e.g., pervasive health care)
Business relevance and potentials for enterprises
Linking the physical and the virtual world
Augmented reality games
The role of sensors for pervasive collaboration and social networking
Energy efficient and mobile enabled protocols
Social pervasive content sharing and live media distribution
Pervasive presence, awareness and instant messaging
Shared viewing and shared editing on mobile devices
Software engineering challenges of pervasive social networks
Papers due by: October 15, 2010
Paper selections due by: December 21, 2010
Final papers due to IEEE: January 29, 2011
Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Also, they must show a significant relevance to the workshop topics of communication, collaboration and social networking in pervasive computing.
All papers should be in IEEE 8.5x11 conference format. Papers will be limited to 6 pages. Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Accepted papers will appear in the PerCom’11 Workshops proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
Please note that all accepted papers need to have a full registration to the conference (there is no workshop only registration). No-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in those papers NOT being included in the IEEE digital libraries.
