Pervasive Intelligibility: Workshop on Intelligibility and Control in
Pervasive Computing -- Call for Papers
San Francisco, CA, USA in conjunction with Pervasive 2011

*Important Dates*

Submission Deadline: February 11, 2011 [EXTENDED]
Notification to Authors: March 18, 2011
Camera-Ready Papers: April 1, 2011
Workshop: June 12, 2011

*Workshop Theme*

Due to the proactive and complex dynamics of pervasive computing
applications, it is important that systems are intelligible (also
called scrutable) to allow end-users to understand "what the systems
know, how they know it, and what they are doing". Furthermore, these
systems should put end-users at the center of control by empowering
them to better co-ordinate, control, and personalize pervasive
systems. Intelligibility and control are crucial to improve the
usability of these novel, and possibly unintuitive, systems and to
help users understand, appreciate, trust, and ultimately adopt them.

With this workshop, we seek to provide a forum for exchanging design
principles, programming techniques, toolkits and insights derived from
real world studies towards building intelligible and user-controllable
pervasive computing systems. Drawing upon the state-of-the-art, our
goal is to refine existing and identify new directions for research in
intelligibility and control for pervasive computing that will foster
further work in the community.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Novel applications in pervasive computing highlighting
intelligibility and/or user-driven control.

* Programming techniques (e.g., design patterns, models),
algorithms, architectures and toolkits to support
intelligibility and/or control.

* Interaction techniques and user interfaces to support
intelligibility and/or control, including information
visualization techniques to help users better interpret
explanations from pervasive computing applications.

* User studies exploring design principles to build intelligible
pervasive systems.

* Intelligible smart objects.

* Evaluation metrics and methods to assess support for
intelligibility and control in pervasive computing systems.


There will be two separate categories for submission:

* Research Contributions should introduce novel concepts and present new
insights and must not exceed 6 pages (ACM Format).

* Position Statements may be up to 2 pages (ACM Format). They should
outline a person's interest and experience in topic of the workshop.

Authors are encouraged to submit to both categories, if considered
appropriate. Supplementary material (e.g., videos) can be submitted
as well and will be made available on the workshop website before the
start of the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published online on the workshop website and
will be included in the electronic conference proceedings. In
addition, authors of selected submissions will be invited to submit
extended versions to a special issue of a journal or possibly an
edited book.

Contributions must be submitted through the EasyChair submission
system no later than February 4, 2011, and should be in PDF
format. More details can be found on the workshop website. If you have
any further questions, we encourage you to contact the organizers at
