Call For Papers

This special issue provides an opportunity for researchers and product developers to review and discuss the state-of-the-art and trends in middleware for pervasive computing. This issue will consider revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the “Third International Workshop on Pervasive and Context-Aware Middleware” (PerCAM13). We also strongly encourage researchers who are unable to attend the workshop to submit their articles to this special issue. Papers on theoretical, practical, and methodological issues in this subject are welcome.
We invite authors to submit their original papers that address issues related to middleware for pervasive computing. Topics of interest include:

Necessity and formalization of middleware for pervasive computing
Architectural issues of middleware for pervasive computing
Single Vs multiple-domain middleware for pervasive computing
Single Vs multiple-domain context management
Mobility issues in pervasive computing
Expandability & scalability issues in pervasive computing
Software engineering techniques for pervasive computing
Software development methodology for pervasive computing
Evaluating methods of middleware for pervasive computing
Embodiments of middleware for pervasive computing
Context acquisition
Quality of context assessment
Context distribution/dissemination/provision
Pervasive computing programming languages
Query-based languages for context retrieval
Context modeling/reasoning
Privacy protection in pervasive computing
Context provenance
Context-aware mobile programming
Context-aware applications and systems
Service management in pervasive computing
Ubiquitous commerce
