Call for Papers

IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing
and Communications (PerCom)

Sponsored by The IEEE Computer Society,  The University of
Texas at Arlington, the IEEE Technical Committee on
Computer Communications and the IEEE Technical Committee
on Parallel Processing


IEEE PerCom 2005 will be the third  annual conference
on the emerging area of pervasive computing and
communications aimed at providing an exciting platform
and paradigm for all the time, everywhere services.
This emergence is a natural outcome of the tremendous
advances in wireless networks, mobile computing, sensor
networks, distributed computing, and agent technologies.
PerCom 2005 will provide a high profile, leading edge
forum for researchers and engineers alike to present
their latest research in the field of pervasive computing
and communications.

Proposals to organize Workhops are  also invited.
PerCom 2005 will also feature industry exhibits and demonstrations.
