Call for videos

Call for Contributions

Videos are an effective tool to showcase research results, to inspire other researchers, and to educate the general public about the latest developments in Pervasive Computing. With the category of Research Videos, Pervasive 2010 seeks research contributions, future visions, project descriptions, and concepts of pervasive computing technologies, systems and applications. The conference particularly values practical experience with design, deployment and use of pervasive systems and applications, and investigation of exciting and inspiring ideas and technologies.

To be accepted, a video must be of an appropriate length for the content. It must contain no material subject to copyright (i.e., that the authors cannot grant Pervasive 2010 the right to redistribute freely), and must be easily comprehensible to English speakers. Finally, an accepted video must be standalone, i.e., the video itself (with audio soundtrack) must describe the work sufficiently, without requiring the viewer to read the abstract. Videos will be judged primarily on their communication of interesting research content (assuming appropriate technical quality).

Note that for the Research Videos category a video can be submitted as a supplement to a paper (as submitted in the Paper or Notes track) or as a standalone contribution. Each research video must be accompanied by a short paper describing the key research contribution. The paper should be written in a way that it can be understood by readers who have not or will not see the video.

Submission and Review Process

Authors MUST submit A URL TO THE VIDEO (NOT THE VIDEO ITSELF!) and a PDF file of the accompanying short paper to pervasive_video [AT] Videos need to be submitted in mpeg (MPEG1/2) or AVI (MPEG-4) as PAL or NTSC. The accompanying paper must be no longer than 4 pages in LNCS Format.

Accepted videos will be shown in a special video session at Pervasive 2010. Accepted contributions (videos and accompanying short papers) will be published in the Pervasive 2010 Adjunct Proceedings on a USB stick. The copyright for videos remains with the authors. If authors have any queries regarding potential submissions, contact the following video chairs.
