Call For Papers

The 5th International Conference on
Intelligent Environments
20-21 July, 2009
Technical University of Catalonia, Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain

The 5th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE?09), will provide a leading edge forum for researchers and engineers from across the world to present their latest research and to discuss future directions in the area of Intelligent Environments. The conference will bring together researchers from both industry and academia from the various disciplines contributing to the area on Intelligent Environments.

Special Session on Pervasive Computing
Session Chairs
Achilles Kameas, CTI, Hellas,
Fahim Kawsar, Waseda University, Japan,

Pervasive systems will be the premier contributor in achieving the vision of people-centric computing paradigm. Pervasive computing is a worldwide research focus and this specific session is expected to draw a significant amount of theoretical and applied research efforts in this area. The session also aims to provide a forum for constructive discussion, defining future research agendas and stimulating possible collaboration.
Pervasive Computing has emerged as one of the principal technologies to embrace the recent paradigm of people centric computing. It encompasses the research efforts towards the realization of distributed services that place human beings at the centre of future developments of the knowledge-based society, while technology recedes in the background of everyday activities. In ten years, seven trillion wireless devices and sensors will surround seven billion people and such forthcoming world will be largely defined by the pervasive computing systems. Pervasive systems will be synthesized, composed or orchestrated from the available services and adapted so as to support and enhance, pro-actively or reactively, different human activities. Such applications present an altogether new set of requirements: they are developed at the many layers of the physical world, that is they may be global, environmental, spatial, personal, handheld, wearable or embedded; they may be personal or social or adapting their status depending on context; they may be made up of any of a number of components coordinated centrally or built as a distributed and decentralized architecture, autonomous or un-affiliated; they may vary on their degree of physical integration as well as their integration with existing information infrastructures; they may show spontaneous behavior and they may learn to adapt it; they may create an ambient intelligence landscape; and last but not least they may be embedded, pervasive or mobile.
Possible application areas include but are not restricted to:
� Tools, Infrastructures and Architectures for Pervasive Computing��
��User-Centric Design and Development Aspects for Pervasive Computing
��Devices and Enabling Technologies for Pervasive Computing
��Pervasive Computing Applications
��User Interfaces and Interaction Design Issues for Pervasive Computing Systems
��Privacy and Security Issues and implications of Pervasive Computing
��Social Issues and Implications of Pervasive Computing
Evaluation Methods for Pervasive Computing devices, systems, and applications

The ?Pervasive Computing? session will particularly welcome practical results, description and analysis of user experiments and demonstrations of working prototypes of pervasive computing applications.
