The 7th International Conference on Human-Centered Computing
(ICPCA & SWS 2013)


Pervasive / ubiquitous computing, ever since it was coined, envisages changes that are beyond technology excellence and has made major impact on how people study, work, live and play. Recently, with the advance of technologies, we witnessed new and challenging research topics growing out of or merging with the conventional pervasive computing paradigm. People are connected easily with new mobile technologies, new wireless devices, and on-demand computing capacity offered by Cloud Computing. Our communities are virtualised in online social websites and collaboration rooms which are facilitated by tools and methodologies developed in CSCW, Collaborative Business, and HCI. Our connection to the physical world is also fundamentally changed with progress in Internet of Things, Smart Environment, and Virtual Reality. In face of such changes, we would like to redefine the conferences in the new decade when it first moves to the continent of hope and future, the South America, where new technologies are actively reshaping the local economies: bringing opportunities to small business in rural areas while enhancing competencies of major industrial establishments. The goal of Conferences is to further explore both theoretical and practical issues in and around the pervasive computing paradigm and foster the exchange of how such technologies can change our life in the new decade.

Call for papers

The conference features the following three sessions and welcomes submissions from both academic and industries.

INFRASTRUCTURE Internet of Things (IoT), Sensor Network, BAN, Wearable Computing
SERVICES AND DATA Cloud Computing, Internet of Service (IoS), Linked Data
SOCIETY Web Society, Collaboration at Work, Pervasive Business

You are also encouraged to submit demonstrate work in progress and late breaking research and development results that show the latest innovative ideas. We sincerely extend our invitation to experienced academics as well as young researchers to present their ongoing work and preliminary results.

Call for Papers: The goal of the Joint Conference of ICPCA8 and SWS5 is to further explore both theoretical and practical issues in and around the emerging computing paradigms, e.g. pervasive collaboration, collaborative business, networked societies. In 2013, more emphasis is being placed on the Sensor Network, Data Stream Analysis, Context-awareness, and Intelligent Society. ICPCA/SWS'13 would like to solicit contributions to three themes:

TRACK01 - INFRASTRUCTURE RFID, Sensor Network, Body Area Network IoT for future Internet Advanced network models and protocols

TRACK02 - DATA AND MOBILITY Linked data (Public data, Enterprise data, Healthcare data) Services science Data stream analysis Security

TRACK03 - SOCIETY Context awareness Intelligent society Web society Privacy issues HCI in IoT and Cloud

Publication:We encourage theoretical, methodological, empirical, and applications papers. The proceedings of this conference will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). Paper submission and reviewing for ICPCA&SWS 2013 will be electronic at the conference Easychair site.

Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in length and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS authors. Papers must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) or MS Words format and will not be accepted in any other format. Papers that exceed 15 pages or do not follow the LNCS guidelines risk being rejected automatically without a review. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference. More information about the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) are available on the Springer LNCS Web site.
