Call: Pervasive 2011

Call for Pervasive 2011 Conference Papers

Pervasive 2011, the Ninth International Conference on Pervasive Computing, will be held June 12-15, 2011 in San Francisco, California.

The paper submission deadline is Monday October 11, 2010 at midnight US/Pacific time.

Pervasive is a premier international conference for cutting edge research on the architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of pervasive computing technologies. The conference places strong emphasis on both the technological innovation aspects of the field of pervasive computing as well as the ways in which these emerging technologies affect and influence everyday life.

For further details of the conference see:

This year’s conference aims to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by previous Pervasive conferences. We welcome high quality papers, either in Full Paper format (max 18 pages) or Note format (max 8 pages), that describe original and unpublished research advancing the state of the art in pervasive computing, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Technologies, devices, and sensors for pervasive computing
  • Tools and systems for designing, building, and deploying pervasive computing systems
  • Evaluations and evaluation methods for assessing the impact of pervasive computing devices, applications or environments
  • Studies of pervasive computing technologies and deployments
  • Formative and evaluative work of pervasive computing applications
  • Interfaces and modes of interactions between people and pervasive computing devices, applications or environments
  • Privacy, security, trust & social issues and implications of pervasive computing

Both Full Paper and Notes submissions should offer substantial and original contributions relevant to the field of Pervasive Computing. Papers should be grounded in existing Pervasive Computing literature and knowledge, and should be written for an interdisciplinary Pervasive Computing audience.

Papers and notes should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission for publication for any other conference, journal, workshop or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN, or DOI number.


Papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive 2011 program committee and additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research communities.

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. If a submitted paper overlaps in content with previously published or simultaneously reviewed work, the paper should make explicit how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been
published or submitted.

Full Papers should include a thorough survey of related work positioning the contribution, a comprehensive, detailed and comprehensible explanation of a device, system, study, theory or method (sufficient for replicability), and compelling validation of the work. Full Papers can be up to 18 pages in LNCS format (

Notes should be succinct but complete contributions. Notes will be reviewed in the same process with Full Papers, and will appear in the proceedings and the conference program. Notes can be up to 8 pages in LNCS format (

Successful submissions typically break new ground and provide substantial support for results and conclusions. The different length of Full Papers (18 pages) and Notes (8 pages) allows authors to choose an appropriate submission category based on the size of the contribution or scope of the work. Consider carefully whether a Full Paper or Note submission is more appropriate, as submissions will only be considered for the category in which they are submitted, (i.e. Full Paper submissions that are found to have small contributions will not be considered for acceptance in Note format.)

All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Details on the submission process will be available soon!

Paper submissions must be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize oblique and overt references and citations that may reveal the identity of the authors or their institutions. However, to facilitate proper review, references to an author’s previous research should not be suppressed, anonymized, or omitted. Instead, references to previous research should be presented in the text in a neutral fashion that does not identify it as the author’s own work.

See for further details on the submission process.
