Call for Papers
Over the last fifty years, computational intelligence has evolved from logic-based artificial intelligence, nature-inspired soft computing, social-oriented agent technology to cyber-physical integrated ubiquitous intelligence towards Pervasive Intelligence (PI). The International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing is intended to cover all kinds of these intelligent paradigms as well as their applications in various pervasive computing. PICom2011 is the next event, in a series of highly successful International Conferences on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing (PICom), previously held as PCC-03 (Las Vegas, USA, June 2003), PCC-04 (Las Vegas, USA, June 2004), PSC-05 (Las Vegas, USA, June 2005), PCAC-06 (Vienna, Austria, April 2006), PCAC-07 (Niagara Falls, Canada, May 2007), IPC-07 (Jeju, Korea, December 2007), IPC-08 (Sydney, Australia, December 2008), PICom-09 (Chengdu, China, December 2009).
PICom2011 is to bring together computer scientists, industrial engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange experimental and theoretical results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the areas of Pervasive Intelligence and Computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for main conference, including tables and figures in IEEE CS format. The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the PICom2011 submission site: http://cse.stfx.ca/~PICom2011/sub/.
Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference.
Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be published in special issues of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing; or International Journal of Ad Hoc and Ubiquitous Computing.
