Call for Papers

The PerNEM 2014 workshop, to be held in Budapest, Hungary, in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2014, builds on the very successful PerNEM 2012 and PerNEM 2013 workshops. It will address the unique technical and scientific challenges of emergency and crisis management, which require effective sensing, communications and decision making with stringent time constraints in dynamic environments. Pervasive systems can provide decision support to rescuers and evacuees, collecting information that is vital for the emergency operation. This workshop will focus on pervasive networked sensing and decision making, both wired and wireless, for emergency management, including advances in sensing, communication, decision support, simulation tools, modeling methods and experimental evaluation.


PerNEM 2014 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 length (at least 10pt font, 2-column format), including references, figures and tables. 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 2014 page.
