First International Workshop on Situated Computing for
Pervasive Environments (SCOPE-2011)

in conjunction with the
6th International Symposium on Parallel Computing in Electrical Engineering
3 - 7 April 2011, Luton, United Kingdom

Nik Bessis, University of Derby, UK and University of Bedfordshire, UK (
Fatos Xhafa, Technical University of Catalonia, Spain (

Aims and Scope
The first International Workshop on Situated Computing for Pervasive Environments (SCOPE-2011) is dedicated to the dissemination of original works that are related to the theories of emerging paradigms yet most importantly of their applicability towards autonomous adaptation to complex environments caused from highly dynamic user contexts. In particular, SCOPE-2011 will discuss advances in situated and pervasive computing, that is to say about computing devices having the autonomous ability of adapting, detecting, interpreting and responding to the user?s future smart environment. Future smart systems increasingly require advanced networks, middleware and interfaces for enabling collaborative technologies, distributed computing and intelligent systems provide an autonomous pervasive environment satisfying user needs.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):

Autonomous Adaptation
Changing Network Environments
Distributed Environments, Crowd and Collaborative Computing
User Needs, Interfaces and Complex Environments
Middleware for Pervasive Network Computing
Middleware and Information Security in Pervasive Network Computing
Wireless Pervasive Network Computing
Sensor and Robots Networks in Pervasive Network Computing
Smart Environments and Ambient Intelligence
Transparency, Locality and Scalability Issues in Middleware for Pervasive Network Computing
Interfaces and Methods for Interconnection of Heterogeneous Networks and Devices
Programming Interfaces for Smart Environments
Database Access Middleware and Database Interface Layering for Sensor Networks
Intelligent Query Languages and Interfaces for Pervasive Network Computing
New Interactive Styles (of Human Computer Interaction) in Pervasive Network Computing

Instruction for Authors
Submitted papers of no more than 4 pages long must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts following the IEEE Conference Proceedings Manuscript style: two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 font size, and number each page. You can find instructions for authors how to format the IEEE CS proceedings manuscripts, at the following web page:

All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two or more independent referees of the International Workshop Program Committee and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit, originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. The papers should be submitted electronically via the easychair system. Details are available from:

Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and archived in the Digital Library. Previous proceedings of the PARELEC conferences are available on the IEEE website (, Xplore service, only abstracts are free).

Best Papers
Selected authors of best papers may invited to submit extended versions of their papers to be published in an edited book volume or in a special issue of the International Journal of Distributed Systems and Technologies (IJDST) ISSN: 1947-3532. For more details, see:
