Call For Papers
IEEE Pervasive Computing delivers the latest peer-reviewed developments in pervasive, mobile, and ubiquitous computing to developers, researchers, and educators who want to keep abreast of rapid technology change. With content that's accessible and useful today, the quarterly publication acts as a catalyst for realizing the vision of pervasive (or ubiquitous) computing, described by Mark Weiser nearly a decade ago.

The essence of this vision is the creation of environments saturated with computing and wireless communication, yet gracefully integrated with human users. Many key building blocks needed for this vision are now viable commercial technologies: wearable and handheld computers, high-bandwidth wireless communication, location-sensing mechanisms, and so on. The challenge is to combine these technologies into a seamless whole. This will require a multidisciplinary approach, involving hardware designers, wireless engineers, human-computer interaction specialists, software agent developers, and so on.

The editorial board of IEEE Pervasive Computing is a distinguished collection of leaders whose expertise spans the breadth of this new field. Led by editor in chief Nigel Davies, they will help advance pervasive computing by bringing together various disciplines, including

    hardware technologies for ubiquitous computing;
    software infrastructure for ubiquitous computing;
    sensing and interaction with the physical world;
    graceful integration of human users; and
    systems considerations, including scalability, security, and privacy.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Population & Health
Submission Date: 2024-03-10

The recent pandemic has drawn the world’s attention towards the various health concerns that are affecting populations at large. In particular, the focus has shifted from improving the health outcomes of individuals to managing and improving the health outcomes at population or societal levels. In this special issue, we focus on the use of technology (of any sorts) in understanding, managing, and improving the health outcomes at individual and / or population levels. In particular, this issue will focus on how technology can be used to increase the scale, accuracy, effectiveness, safety, and other metrics that are necessary when tackling health issues at scale. We will also focus on new use cases that are enabled via the use of technology. Relevant topics of this special issue include but are not limited to the following: - Technology assisted mental and / or physical health detection, monitoring, diagnosis, intervention at population and / or individual levels - Using technology to improve the health outcomes of specific populations. e.g. the elderly, the young, the disabled, the displaced, etc. - New use cases for population health enabled by technology

Special Issue on Energy
Submission Date: 2024-03-31

Pervasive computing has emerged as a dynamic field at the intersection of various domains, presenting unique opportunities also to address critical global challenges. As sustainable energy consumption and supply have become increasingly crucial, leveraging the potential of pervasive computing for innovative solutions is of paramount importance. The Special Issue on “Tackling Energy with Pervasive Computing” of IEEE Pervasive Magazin aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and experts in the field to explore novel approaches, techniques, and technologies to address pressing energy-related issues. A common thread of all energy-related topics is the human element: people are critical in the design and operation of energy generation as well as in the decisions to consume energy. This special issue of the IEEE Pervasive Computing will provide a forum for papers investigating new forms of humans interacting with energy: - Energy-Efficient Sensing and Actuation: optimizing energy consumption in sensor networks, IoT devices, and intelligent control systems. Green Data Centers and Cloud Computing: Strategies and technologies to reduce energy consumption in data centers and cloud infrastructure. Energy-Aware Software and Hardware Design: Novel approaches to designing energy-efficient computing systems, algorithms, and software applications. Renewable Energy Integration: monitoring and optimizing of renewable energy sources, grid integration, and energy storage systems. Smart Grids and Energy Management: Applications of pervasive computing in smart grid technologies, load management, and energy conservation in urban environments. Human-Centric Energy Solutions: Human-computer interaction and pervasive computing solutions for raising energy awareness, encouraging energy-efficient behavior, and energy conservation. Environmental Sensing and Monitoring: The use of pervasive computing for environmental data collection, analysis, and reporting to address climate change and sustainability. Case Studies and Real-World Applications: Presentations of practical implementations, success stories, and lessons learned in addressing energy-related challenges with pervasive computing. Submission Guidelines The guest editors invite original and high-quality submissions addressing all aspects of this field, as long as the connection to pervasive computing and/or the Internet of Things is clear and central to the paper. Review or summary articles — for example critical evaluations of the state of the art, or an insightful analysis of established and upcoming technologies — may be accepted if they demonstrate academic rigour and relevance. Articles submitted to IEEE Pervasive Computing should not exceed 6,000 words, including all text, the abstract, keywords, bibliography, biographies, and table text. The word count must include 250 words for each table and figure. References should be limited to at most 20 citations (40 for survey papers). Authors are encouraged, but not required, to use a template for submission (accepted articles will ultimately be typeset by magazine staff for publication). Note that the magazine always welcomes submissions into its regular queue that cover the role of computing in the physical world – as characterized by visions such as the Internet of Things and Ubiquitous Computing. Topics of interest are, e.g., hardware design, sensor networks, mobile systems, human-computer interaction, industrial design, machine learning, data science, but also societal issues including privacy and ethics. Simply select the “Regular” option when submitting at the submission site (submissions are possible at any time; no need for prior abstract by email).
