Call For Papers

The 19th International Conference on Pervasive Computing and
Communications (PerCom 2021), March 22-26, 2021
in Kassel, Germany

In 2021, IEEE PerCom will visit Kassel, situated at the geographic center of
Germany and a dynamic industrial and cultural city. It is known for its UNESCO
World Heritage site "Bergpark Wilhemshohe" and famous for a leading exhibition
of contemporary art "documenta".

PerCom is the premier annual scholarly venue in pervasive computing and
communications. Pervasive computing has found its way into many commercial
systems due to tremendous advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and
topics such as wireless networking, mobile and distributed computing, sensor
systems, ambient intelligence, and smart devices.


PerCom 2021 solicits research contributions in all areas pertinent to
pervasive computing and communications, especially those that cross
traditional research boundaries. In particular, we target:
* Advances in pervasive systems and infrastructures: middleware systems and
services; data engineering for pervasive computing; clouds, fog and edge
computing; integrations of smartphones in pervasive experiences; applications
of device-to-device coordination
* Theories, models, and algorithms: context modeling and reasoning; adaptive
computing; activity and emotion recognition; programming paradigms; applied
machine learning; deep machine learning; federated learning; casual
learning; cognitive computing; complex networks; spatio-temporal modeling
* Domain-specific challenges and novel applications: urban/mobile
crowdsensing & intelligence; PerCom for healthcare and well-being;
cyber-physical PerCom; smart homes and virtual assistants; innovative PerCom
applications (e.g., sports analytics, crime prevention, pervasive
* Intersections of PerCom with: opportunistic networks; IoT and sensor
systems; RFID systems; pervasive data science, cyber physical systems.
* New techniques for user-level concerns: participatory and social sensing;
trust, security, and privacy; user interface, interaction, and persuasion;
online and offline social networking and pervasive computing.
* Technological innovations: architectures, protocols, and technologies for
pervasive communications; energy-harvesting, self-powered, or battery-less
systems; mobile and wearable systems; smart devices and environments;
positioning and tracking technologies; wireless crowd-recharging;
device-free human sensing.

Contributions can be analytical, empirical, technological, methodological, or
a combination. Papers reporting strong systems engineering contributions
backed by solid and appropriate evaluations are strongly encouraged. The
impact of the contributions should be demonstrated in the context of pervasive
computing and communications applications.

Special note: PerCom 2021 will follow a double-blind review process. As a
result, authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions.

* Paper registration in EDAS: September 28, 2020
* Submission via EDAS: October 4, 2020
* Notification: December 22, 2020
* Camera Ready: February 5, 2021
