Call for Papers
PeRConAI will focus on solutions contributing towards advancing truly pervasive and liquid AI enabling edge devices, regardless of their available resources, to accomplish training and inference under full, weak, or no supervision.

The increasing pervasiveness of edge devices and the high availability, velocity, and volatility of data generated and collected at the edge of the internet are pushing towards a paradigm shift in the design of AI-based systems. AI systems are moving the execution of both training and inference tasks from powerful and remote data centres where all data is available in a centralized fashion to more pervasive and distributed/decentralized systems at the edge of the internet, working in proximity to where data is physically generated and/or collected.
The design of edge AI systems must leverage the collaboration of several heterogeneous devices working in a highly dynamic context both in terms of processing capabilities and connectivity. Beyond resource limitations, data locally collected or generated by devices might statistically differ from one device to another, even if collected by the same application or belonging to the same phenomenon. Finally, human intervention in the AI process is still predominant, especially in its initial phases, e.g., data preparation, labelling, and pre-processing, thus limiting the necessary speed up to make AI truly pervasive.

Topics of interest
The PeRConAI workshop aims at fostering the development and circulation of new ideas and research directions on pervasive and resource-constrained AI/ML, bringing together practitioners and researchers working on the intersection between pervasive computing and machine learning.
The PeRConAI workshop solicits contributions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

** Foundations of Advanced Machine learning algorithms and methods for pervasive systems subject to resource limitations addressing the following open challenges:

- Distributed/decentralized Machine Learning for resource-constrained devices (e.g., resource-efficient federated learning);
- Lightweight ML models for on-device training/inference in pervasive computing (e.g., GRU, ELM, MHN, etc.);
- Sustainable AI through new, brain- and bio-inspired ML algorithms exploiting energy-efficient hardware, e.g., FPGA, Neuromorphic HW;
- Compression of deep learning models for real-time inference
- Privacy-preserving distributed/decentralized learning in pervasive and resource-constrained scenarios;
- Trustworthiness of distributed/decentralized learning systems in pervasive and resource-constrained scenarios;
- Semi-supervised and self-supervised learning systems in pervasive and resource-constrained scenarios;
- Learning with imbalanced data in pervasive and resource-constrained scenarios;
- Continual learning in pervasive and resource-constrained scenarios;
Over-the-air computing for distributed/decentralized learning systems in pervasive and resource-constrained scenarios.

** Applications of Advanced Machine learning algorithms, methods, and approaches for pervasive computing under resource limitations applied to the following application domains:

- Health and well-being applications (e.g. activity recognition, health monitoring).
- Anomaly/Novelty detection (e.g. Industry 4.0, intrusion detection, privacy, and security).
- Audio signal processing (e.g., sound event detection, speech recognition/processing).
- Video stream processing on resource-constrained devices.
- Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval (e.g. conversational applications running on resource-constrained, mobile, or
edge devices).
- Intersection between mobile computing with ML/DL on resource-constrained devices.
- Any other real-world applications and case studies where the pervasiveness of resource-constrained devices is central for knowledge extraction.

Submissions Guidelines
All papers must be at most 6 pages of technical content, typeset in double-column IEEE format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper, with all fonts embedded.
As for the main conference, in PeRConAI the peer-review process will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not contain names, affiliations or any other reference to the authors.
Submissions must be made via EDAS. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, can be found on the IEEE Computer Society website.

PeRConAI will be held in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2024 ( All accepted papers will be included in the Percom workshops proceedings and included and indexed in the IEEEXplore digital library. At least one author will be required to have full registration at the PerCom 2024 conference and present the paper during the workshop.
