Call For Papers


PerHot 2012
The 1st International IEEE Workshop on
Hot Topics in Pervasive Computing

(at PerCom 2012)
Lugano, Switzerland
March 19 / 23, 2012

Mark Weiser first proposed Pervasive Computing two decades ago -- and we've
explored the space of his ideas in that time. It's time to explore new wild
and crazy -- "hot" -- ideas! The goal of PerHot is to discuss such new and
controversial ideas in the whole of Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing.

* Is pervasive middleware dead? Tell us.

* Do we really need another context paper? If not, what is your proposal
to replace it?

* Are new approaches like e.g. cyber-physical systems changing our
understanding of Pervasive Computing? Or are the new approaches just a
new name for the same vision?

* Should we stop citing the Weiser paper? If so, please submit "the next
Weiser paper" to this workshop.

We specifically call for early ideas, demo systems, challenges papers and
well-reasoned attacks on the status quo of Pervasive and Ubiquitous
Computing. Papers will be judged on their ability to generate discussion
and encourage brainstorming among workshop participants as well as their
technical quality and presentation. Example areas for paper submissions
include but are not limited to:

- New directions in platform and system research in Pervasive Computing
- New abstractions and architectural models for Pervasive Computing
beyond context-awareness and "pervasiveness"
- New user interface paradigms and models for Pervasive Computing
- New programming models and languages for Pervasive Computing
- Experience papers from deployment or development of existing Pervasive
and Ubiquitous Computing systems
- The convergence of systems models, e.g., Pervasive Computing and
Augmented Reality Systems or Pervasive Computing and Mobile Computing
- Challenges of previously published approaches and why they do or do
not work
- Overlooked problems and evolving challenges facing the PerCom community
- Social, ecological, and economic impact of Pervasive Computing

Submission Guidelines
Submissions of papers are solicited in the IEEE proceedings format and
should be 4-6 pages long. Papers must be original prior unpublished work
and not under review elsewhere. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and
selected based on their originality, merit, and relevance to the workshop.
Paper submissions will be handled online.

Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop, and will appear in the
IEEE PerCom Workshop Proceedings. At least one author must have a full
registration for PerCom (there is no workshop-only registration) and must
present the paper. Failure to do so will result in the paper *not* being
included in the IEEE Digital Library.

Please visit if you have any questions.
