Pervasive computing has evolved during the last few years due to recent developments in portable low-cost light-weight devices and emergent short range, and low-power wireless communication networks. Pervasive computing environments focus on integrating computing and communications with the surrounding physical environment of day by day lives to making computing and communication transparent to the users.    In pervasive computing, numerous, casually accessible, often invisible, frequently mobile or embedded devices are connected to an increasingly pervasive network structure and collect information about the surrounding environment of pervasive computing using sensors.   Pervasive computing enlarges the usability of computers by allowing low powered mobile devices to query the database over the wireless network, but also raises some demanding challenges such as slow expensive connections, frequent line disconnection, limited host bandwidth, location dependent data, etc. Pervasive computing are required in different applications, such as hospitals, smart classroom, construction sites, stadiums, shopping malls, emergency services, convention centers, battlefields, and inhospitable physical environments etc.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Context-aware computing

  • Smart devices and smart spaces

  • Evaluation of pervasive computing applications

  • Database for pervasive computing

  • Location aware pervasive computing
  • Resource aware pervasive computing
  • Security in pervasive computing
  • Pervasive computing architectures
  • Sensors and actuators
  • User interfaces for pervasive computing devices
  • Wireless and mobile service management and delivery
  • Ad hoc networking protocols and service discovery
  • Middleware for pervasive computing applications
  • Personal area networks
  • Education using pervasive computing and technologies
  • Service discovery mechanisms

Paper Submission:
Papers should be original and contain contributions of theoretical or experimental nature, or be unique experience reports. Interested authors should submit a 6-page summary of their original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the IEEE format to the track chair. Electronic submission in the PDF or Word format is strongly encouraged. For instructions on electronic submissions, Click here (Select Track Area: Pervasive Computing).

Evaluation Process:
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Per ITCC policy, except for invited papers, all papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings with an ISBN. Selected track papers presented in the conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of an international journal.

Best Student Paper:
The Best Student Paper will be awarded at the conference. To be eligible, the student must be the sole author of the paper, or the first author and primary contributor. (The winner of the award will present the paper in a plenary session at the conference). A cover letter to the General Chair/Track Chair must identify the paper as a candidate for this competition at the time of submission.

Full paper due: November 29, 2004 (
new deadline!)
Acceptance notification: December 29, 2004

Camera-ready paper (6 pages) due: January 14, 2005
