Call For Papers

5th International Workshop on Pervasive Collaboration and Social Networking
PerCol 2014

March 24 or March 28 (TBD), 2014
Budapest, Hungary

Extended paper deadline: November 25th, 2013

in association with IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications
PerCom 2014


The 5th workshop on Pervasive Collaboration and Social Networking (PerCol) addresses the research field at the intersection of pervasive computing and social computing. We are interested in various types of human-to-human interaction with pervasive devices like mobile social networking, crowdsourcing, collaborative apps, location-based games or interaction with public displays. While this is an application-driven research field, we also welcome research on the foundations of Pervasive Social Computing like middleware and development methods, rich presence, pervasive social context, social signal processing and robust and energy-efficient communication in the pervasive scenario.


Topics of interest to the workshop include (but are not limited to):
- Mobile and pervasive social networking
- Activity streams in a pervasive and distributed setting
- Social and pervasive context
- Interaction with public displays and/or smart items
- Novel types of collaboration based on online social networks
- Crowdsourcing
- The role of location and proximity for social applications
- Using sensor information beyond location
- Real-life use case experiences (e.g., pervasive health care)
- Location-based and other pervasive games
- Frameworks, middleware and development methods for pervasive social applications
- Application and service interoperability issues
- Social pervasive content sharing and media distribution
- Pervasive presence and awareness
- Energy efficient and mobile enabled protocols


Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Also, they must show a significant relevance to the workshop topics of pervasive collaboration and social networking. All papers should be in the IEEE format. Papers should be no more than 6 pages in length. All papers will be managed electronically through EDAS. Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Accepted papers will appear in the PerCom 2014 Workshops proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
