Topics of interest may include one or more of the following (but are not limited to) themes:

  • Software infrastructure, middleware, agent technologies and frameworks
  • Device technologies
  • Communication technologies
  • Sensor networks and RFIDs
  • Location sensing and management
  • Context-aware computing
  • Privacy, security and trust
  • Pervasive services
  • Attentive environments
  • Programming paradigms
  • User interfaces and interaction models
  • Mobile and wireless systems and services
  • Analysis, design, implementation and evaluation techniques

Failure to comply with the above formatting instructions for submitted papers will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review.

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.


Authors of selected papers from PerSys07 will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for possible publication in the Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal. A fast-track review system will be used, thus enabling a fast turnaround.
