International Workshop on Pervasive Information Flow (PerFlow'22) in conjunction with PerCom 2022



The 2022 International Workshop on Pervasive Information Flow (PerFlow'22)
in conjunction with the 19th Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2022)
March 21, 2022 (Monday)
Pisa, Italy

Call for Papers

Internet of Things (IoT) has been attracting attention due to its economic impact and high expectations for drastically changing our societies. Trillion-scale IoT devices including sensors and actuators are being installed in various “things” such as machines, humans, vehicles, buildings, and environments. At the same time, we are facing research challenges on how to effectively, timely and integratedly handle these over trillion flows (which we call Pervasive Flows) gushed from massive devices or heterogeneous pervasive systems.

Based on the success of our previous workshops, IFoT 2016, PerFoT 2018 and 2019, and PerFlow 2020 and 2021, the sixth edition, the 2022 International Workshop on Pervasive Information Flow (PerFlow 2022) aims to present and discuss research challenges, design/implementations of new architectures, and experiences on timely processing/distribution of pervasive flows. In addition, interoperability, integration and coordination among different applications, services and devices should be discussed for real- world deployment of pervasive systems handling pervasive flows.

Topics of the Workshop

We solicit technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions should clearly identify how they relate to issues on pervasive flows gushed from various things. Contributions describing an overall working system and reporting real world deployment experiences are particularly of interest.

Topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission

All paper submissions will be reviewed by at least two program committee members. Papers must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the submission site shown below. All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

Submitted papers should be at most 6 pages in the IEEE template (available here). Papers can be submitted via the following EDAS submission portal for PerFlow 2022

Each accepted workshop paper requires a full PerCom registration (no registration is available for workshops only). Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore).
