Call for Papers
The events that took place on 11 September 2001 have brought to the forefront the unique challenges that occur during a crisis, which require effective sensing, communications and decision making with demanding time constraints in highly dynamic environments. Pervasive systems address these requirements by providing decision support to rescuers and evacuees, guaranteeing communications and collecting information that is vital for planning and organising the emergency operation. This workshop focuses on pervasive networked sensing and decision making, both wired and wireless, geared towards emergency management. PerNEM 2010 addresses leading edge research in these areas through the use of sensing, communication, decision support, simulation tools and modelling methods with focus on system design, optimisation and experimental evaluation.
PerNEM will bring together contributions which include but are not limited to the following areas:
- Networked sensors for emergency management
- Pervasive middleware for emergency management
- Decentralised algorithms for pervasive systems
- Self-aware and self- adaptive network design and evaluation
- Network self-healing, security and self-defence
- Wireless Networks for emergency support
- Mobile sensors for disaster monitoring
- Networked robotics for wireless communications
- Pervasive emergency management systems
- QoS in critical communications
Registration and Submission Details
Accepted papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE PerCom.
All accepted papers need to have a full registration to the conference (there is no workshop only registration). No-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in those papers NOT being included in the IEEE digital libraries.
Submitted papers should be no longer than 6 pages in length, and formatted to 2 columns, 10pt fonts, using the IEEE Computer Society 8.5" x 11" authors kit.
Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair PerNEM 2010 page.
Paper submission: November 20, 2009 (EXTENDED)

Camera-ready due: January 29, 2010
Workshop date: April 2, 2010
Hotel information is available on PerCom 2010 website.
