On 15 January 2007 Location: IEEE Pervasive Computing
IEEE Pervasive Computing invites articles about urban computing: the integration of computing, sensing, and actuation technologies into our everyday urban settings and lifestyles. Successful integration requires taking several facets of the urban environment into account at once. Urban settings frame social behaviors; they encompass architectural forms and features that may or may not be harmonious with given technologies; and they are increasingly but variably permeated by wireless networks and fixed and mobile devices. A key challenge is the great diversity and density of people, devices, and built artifacts found in urban places. Urban computing ranges from city-wide transportation-sensing infrastructure, to services embedded in a cafe, to the bluetooth "aura" of an individual's mobile phone as he or she walks down a street.
The Chairman of the 2nd International Conference on Experiments/Process/System Modelling/Simulation & Optimization, Professor Demos, T. Tsahalis, also Director of LFME, invites all scientists and engineers from the academic, scientific, engineering and industrial sectors to participate in the Conference and to contribute both in the promotion and the dissemination of the scientific knowledge.
