The First International Conference on Pervasive Computing, Signal Processing and Applications
Harbin Institute of Technology, China, September 17-19, 2010


Call For Papers

    Pervasive Computing, Signal Processing and Applications (PCSPA 2010) will provide the participants with opportunities to discuss and explore areas related to the theory of pervasive computing, signal processing and its applications. Pervasive computing envisages one world of communicating miniature devices, sensors and actuators to provide ambient services. Together with signal processing, it forms the theoretical foundation for a wide range of applications that are supporting and gradually changing our everyday life. The goal of PCSPA 2010 is to further explore both theoretical and practical issues in pervasive computing, signal processing and its applications. It also provides one platform for both researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and establish collaboration.

Paper Submission

    All papers must be unpublished and should not be under simultaneous review for any other conferences and workshops. Papers in special sessions are also invited to provide forums for focused discussions on new topics and innovative applications of established approaches. A special session consists of at least four related papers. Papers must be written in English and formatted according to the double columns IEEE format. Research papers should be a full paper of at least 4 pages but no more than 6 pages including references and illustrations. Position papers and system demos are also welcome. Electronic submissions in PDF format are recommended.

    All papers should be submitted electronically via Online Paper Submission System, which is located at and The format of both the initial submissions and the final accepted papers must be in PDF. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the PCSPA 2010 program committee and selected reviewers. Papers are selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Accepted papers with paid registration will be included in the Proceedings of PCSPA2010, IEEE Xplore digital library and are EI and ISTP indexed. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a revised and expanded version of their papers based on referees' comments and suggestions to be considered for publication in special issues of international journals indexed by SCI.

Session Proposal

    Researchers are also invited to propose special sessions on specific topics of interest and new trends in Pervasive Computing, Signal Processing, and Applications. All proposals should be sent to the Invited Session Chairs.
