Call One for Workshop Proposals

Pervasive 2010, the Eighth International Conference on Pervasive Computing will be held in Helsinki, Finland, 17 - 20 May.

The workshop program for Pervasive 2010 will be different than in past years as invited projects, invited topics and regular workshops form part of the program. Two topical and two project workshops have already been invited. The invited workshops are:

  • Energy Awareness and Conservation through Pervasive Applications
  • Multimodal Location Based Techniques for Extreme Navigation
  • Workshop on Pervasive Personalization
  • Workshop on Ubiquitous Virtual Reality

Contrary to previous years, there will be two calls for workshop proposals. Workshops will be selected from both calls. The deadline for the first call is 26 June 2009. Interested parties should submit 1-2 page workshop proposals that include the following details:

  • Title and abstract/description for the workshop
  • Format of the workshop
  • Motivation for the relevance of the workshop to Pervasive computing
  • Names and affiliations of the organisers

The workshop calls will be evaluated considering the (i) quality of the proposal, (ii) relevance of the workshop topic and (iii) overall span of workshop topics. This first call is targeted at groups who which to establish a longer lead time to promote and develop their workshop program than is typically the case with Pervasive workshops. Clearly, topics for workshops should differ substantially from the topics of the invited workshops.

The notifications will be sent by the end of July. Accepted workshops are expected to finalize their workshop program (call for papers, PC, website etc.) at the latest by 2 October 2009.

Critical dates:

  • 26 June 2009: Submission deadline
  • 31 July 2009: Notification
  • 2 October 2009: Deadline for final workshop descriptions and workshop webpages

The deadline for the second call is 16 October 2009. This will be the standard call our research community has for each Pervasive conference. Participants submitting to the second call are expected to submit full proposals (4-6 pages). More details about this call will be sent at a later stage.
