Call For Papers

Pervasive computing middleware inherits general tasks of traditional middleware in distributed systems such as coordination, communication, security and tolerance for component failures and disconnections. In general, context-aware middleware lies on top of the operating system of mobile phones, PDAs, personal computers, servers, laptops, and other computational devices of the environment to firstly discover and register context sources, and then perform gathering, aggregating, assessing quality of context, modeling and reasoning, and finally create transparent dissemination mechanisms to distribute pure contextual information among interested applications while protecting privacy of the users.

PerCAM 13 invites authors to submit their original papers that address issues related to middleware for pervasive computing. Topics of interest are included but not limited to:
Necessity and formalization of middleware for pervasive computing
Architectural issues of middleware for pervasive computing
Operating system support for pervasive computing
Common trends of pervasive and cloud computing
Single Vs Multiple-Domain middleware for pervasive computing
Single Vs Multiple-Domain context management
Mobility issues in pervasive computing
Expandability & scalability issues in pervasive computing
Software engineering techniques for pervasive computing
Software development methodology for pervasive computing
Evaluating methods of middleware for pervasive computing
Embodiments of middleware for pervasive computing
Context acquisition
Quality of context assessment
Context distribution/dissemination/provision
Pervasive computing programming languages
Query-based languages for context retrieval
Context modeling/reasoning
Privacy protection in pervasive computing
Context provenance
Context-aware mobile programming
Context-aware applications and systems
Service management in pervasive computing
Ubiquitous commerce


PerCAM 13 seeks original, previously unpublished manuscripts, describing research in all aspects of middleware for pervasive computing that contribute to the workshop theme. It is possible to present systems at PerCAM that have not been fully built or evaluated. The goal of this workshop is to foster the research community working on pervasive systems.

In general PerCAM13 accepts three types of submissions:

* Full paper: Full papers should be at a maximum of 10 pages (including figures and references).
* Short/position paper: Short and position papers should not exceed 4 pages. Short papers describe works in progress. Position papers try to enable discussion on emerging topics without the experimentation and original research normally presented in a full paper.
* Student Forum: Student forum submissions should not exceed 4 pages. This part of the event provides the opportunity to present accomplished work by Ms students as well as work in progress by PhD students. The first author of the paper has to be an officially enrolled student. This track will aim at creating the right context for students to receive feedback from peers and experienced researchers to inform their research.

All Papers must be submitted electronically via the following link:

All papers will be peer reviewed, and acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Papers for publication should be formatted according to the Springer conference paper template. All the materials related to Springer conference paper templates can be found in the author’s instruction page. Accepted papers will be published by Springer under their Communications in Computer and Information Science. Distinguished papers accepted and presented in the workshop, after further revision will be published in a special issue of a prestigious journal.
