Call For Papers

International Workshop on Pervasive Welfare Solutions (PWS16)


In conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks EUSPN 2016
19-22 September, 2016, London, United Kingdom.


The 1st International Workshop on Pervasive Welfare Solutions (PWS16) provides an international forum on the latest technologies and research in the field of Pervasive Welfare. Most people have access to some form of mobile devices, and these devices are becoming successively more powerful, and along with expectations, able to do more and more. We are living and working within environments that can support, both computationally and technologically, many ancillary features. Traditionally welfare has not been a key concern for computing systems, however as pervasive spaces become more prevalent, the concept of Pervasive Welfare will become more important. This area highlights the importance of pervasive security, health and wellbeing. Currently, we can utilise RFID tag technologies to indicate security; we can use biometric techniques within both health and security to check for well-being, subsequently, the future for pervasive welfare is very bright. We have the technology to create pervasive welfare systems ranging from medical facilities to childcare and by incorporating both academic and industry partners we can pave the way to a more pervasive future.

PMS 2016 will be held in London, UK (19-22 September 2016) in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN-2016).


The aim of the proposed workshop is to enhance profitable discussions between industry and academics on what pervasive welfare techniques, software, methodologies and hardware are being explored.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Pervasive Personal Security
Environmental Security
Pervasive Health Monitoring
Ethical, Legal and Social issues within Pervasive Welfare.
Pervasive Welfare Architectures
Methodologies of Deployment for Pervasive Welfare.
Pervasive Welfare Applications
Smart Pervasive Welfare
Pervasive Welfare and Personalization
Location-Based Services for Pervasive Welfare
Important Dates

Submission deadline: June 1st, 2016

Workshop: September 19th, 2016 – September 22nd, 2016

The page limit for papers should not exceed 6 pages. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the EUSPN-2016 proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier. The authors must follow Elsevier guidelines as given in EUSPN-2016 website.

The submission processes will be managed by If you have used this system before, you can use the same username and password. If this is your first time using EasyChair, you will need to register for an account by clicking “I have no EasyChair account” button. Upon completion of registration, you will get a notification email from the system and you are ready for submitting your paper. You can upload and re-upload the paper to the system by the submission due date.

The selective outstanding papers presented at the workshops, after further revision, will be considered for publication in journals special issues. In case of any problem with submission, please contact the workshop chair for assistance.

All workshops accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series (on-line). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus and Engineering Village (Ei). This includes EI Compendex. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP.
