Call for Papers

After a successful second PerNEM workshop in 2012, we are delighted to announce the third PerNEM workshop in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2013.
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 2013 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:

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.

Papers must be 6 pages or less in size, including references, figures and tables (at least 10pt font, 2-column format). The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as information for formatting the manuscript can be found here.

Papers should be submitted via the EDAS PerNEM 2013 page.

Paper submission: December 2, 2012

Author notification: January 7, 2013

Camera-ready due: January 25, 2013

Workshop date: TBD
