Call For Papers

Workshop Scope

The rapid rise of online social communities has created a new paradigm for personal networking. In a logical - and rapid progression - many social communities are now going mobile, using smart phones or other wireless devices instead of the PC. A 2006 report from ABI Research titled Mobile Social Communities says that social networking is going to have a major impact on mobile phones. The report says that the mobile social community numbers around 50 million users globally and that by 2011 the number will reach 174 million. In combination with further pervasive computing technologies mobile social networks will have a high impact on the way of communication and collaboration in Pervasive Computing environments. It will enable extended presence and awareness as well as flexible adaptation based on sensing infrastructures, new forms of interaction with computing devices influencing collaboration of humans, new forms of virtual togetherness based on technologies virtual environments and 3D web and Spontaneous interaction using Peer-to-peer and ad-hoc networking technologies.

The goal of the PerCol workshop is to present the most recent research achievements in systems design, experimental evaluations and practical experiences in the named field. It should provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss formal aspects, middleware platforms and services, protocols and mechanisms, applications and case studies in the context of communication, collaboration, and social networking in pervasive computing environments.
