Call for Pervasive 2008 Demonstrations
Research Demonstrators offer a unique opportunity to showcase
research prototypes, and to discuss them with an international audience
of experts in pervasive computing. To promote this, Pervasive 2008 is
seeking interesting and engaging demonstrations of pervasive computing
technologies. Proposers are invited to submit Research Demonstrations
under the general topics of the conference.
Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
* New technologies and devices for pervasive computing
* New applications of pervasive computing technologies
* New interfaces and modes of interactions between people
and pervasive computing devices, applications or environments
* New models, tools, infrastructures, architectures and techniques for
designing, implementing & deploying pervasive computing applications
* Evaluations and evaluation methods, for assessing the impact of
pervasive computing devices, applications or environments
* Privacy, security, trust & social issues and implications of
We encourage combining a research demonstration with a short paper that
describes the contribution and as an anchor point for future reference.
Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format, up to 4 pages in length and
conform to the OCG Format
All demonstration submissions should be sent to the demonstration
chairs via e-mail (c.f. below)
The authors should also provide a brief sketch of the planned
demonstration on an additional page. Specific requirements concerning
space, power, network, and security should be stated. It is planned that
wireless internet access will be provided. Accepted contributions will
be published in the adjunct proceedings of 2008 with the Austrian
Computer Society (OCG) series and online. The demonstrations will be
introduced during a plenary session of the conference, and there will
also be a reception dedicated to the presentation of posters and

Call for Pervasive 2008 Videos
Videos are an effective tool to showcase research results, to inspire
other researchers, and to educate the general public about the latest
developments in Pervasive Computing.
With the category of Research Videos, Pervasive 2008 seeks research
contributions, future visions, project descriptions, and concepts of
pervasive computing technologies, systems and applications. The
conference particularly values practical experience with design,
deployment and use of pervasive systems and applications, and
investigation of exciting and inspiring ideas and technologies.
To be accepted, a video must be of an appropriate length for the
content. It must contain no material subject to copyright (i.e., that
the authors cannot grant Pervasive 2008 the right to redistribute
freely), and must be easily comprehensible to English speakers.
Finally, an accepted video must be standalone, i.e., the video itself
(with audio soundtrack) must describe the work sufficiently, without
requiring the viewer to read the abstract. Videos will be judged
primarily on their communication of interesting research content
(assuming appropriate technical quality).
Each research video must be accompanied by a short paper describing
the key research contribution. The paper should be written in a way
that it can be understood by readers who have not or will not see the
Accepted videos will be shown in a special video session at Pervasive
2008. We also plan to have video proceedings on CD-ROM. The
accompanying short paper will be published in the adjunct proceedings
of Pervasive 2008 which will be available in printed form as well as
electronically on the conference web-site.
Submission and Review Process
Authors MUST submit a URL to the video and a PDF of the accompanying
short paper. Videos need to be submited in mpeg (MPEG1/2) or AVI
(MPEG-4) as PAL or NTSC (The final camera-ready version must be
submitted as PAL). The accompaying paper must be no longer than 4
pages in OCG Format.
Please send submissions to pervasive.2008.videos [at] gmail.com. Only
submit a link to the video file, not the video.

March 15, 2008: Videos: Acceptance notification
If authors have any queries regarding potential submissions, including
copyright, please contact the co-chairs.
