2010 Systemics and Informatics World Network (SIWN 2010)


Chongqing, China, 12-14 July 2010




























The 1st International Conference on Pervasive Networked Services and Internet of Things (PNSIOT 2010)


Chongqing, China, 12-14 July 2010



Call for Papers (PDF   Doc  TXT)


Pervasive computing is emerging as the next paradigm for distributed and mobile computing through building systems of communicating miniaturized devices, sensors and actuators in which ambient, personalized trustworthy services built out of pervasive infrastructure and information are seamlessly available anywhere, anytime, and in all forms. By embedding ambient intelligence in everyday objects, our workplaces, our homes and even ourselves, pervasive computing and communications will enable a new breed of applications and systems which are composed of massive smart objects to create the environments that underpin a smart world.


PNSIOT 2010 provides a premier forum for researchers and engineers alike to present state-of-the-art research and development progresses in all areas related to architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of mobile communications and pervasive computing as these technologies are permeating and integrating into our everyday living and working environments.
