7th IEEE International Workshop on PervasivE Learning, Life, and Leisure
March 25, 2011 in Seattle, WA, USA
in conjunction with the 9th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2011)
PerEL 2011 is the successor of six previous workshops at IEEE PerCom, extending the scope from learning to related fields like entertainment or assistive systems.
The workshop aims to address the issues of pervasive computing in combination with new forms and possibilities of learning, life, and leisure. Highly mobile, context-aware, and pro-active services provide significant benefit to the users - in terms of simplicity, comfort, transparency, and finally quality of our everyday activities. PerEL 2011 will address technologies, algorithms, tools, architectures, and applications as well as social models and prerequisitions of pervasive learning, life, and leisure. It aims at an examination of future visions in that areas. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• mobile, ad-hoc communication
• service and session mobility, device independency
• intelligent, context-aware, pro-active systems
• cooperation, collaboration, and communities
• global, multi-lingual networks
• document, knowledge, and service management
• process, context, and data modeling
• adaptation, self organization
• security & trust
• tangible, natural-language user interfaces
PerEL 2011 will assemble papers based on two categories: scientific papers, and demos/case studies. Scientific papers are typically driven by technology and present new results of research in at least one of the topics above, associated with a theoretical base and (empirical) verification. Demos and case studies are typically driven by apllication and present practical developments, along with empirical validations.
We kindly invite authors to submit full papers on original and
unpublished work. Papers must be written in English and shall not exceed
6 pages in IEEE proceedings style. Papers must be submitted in PDF
format using EDAS. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer
Society Press. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author
to fully register for PerCom 2011 and to present the paper/demo
on-site. No-shows at the workshop will result in an exclusion from the
IEEE Digital Library.
