                  PerNEM 2010 Call for Papers

The First Annual Workshop on Pervasive Networks for Emergency Management
            (In conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2010)


         Mannheim, Germany, March 29 - April 2, 2010


The events that took place on 11 September 2001 have brought to the
forefront the unique challenges that occur during a crisis, which require
effective sensing, communications and decision making with demanding time
constraints in highly dynamic environments. Pervasive systems address these
requirements by providing decision support to rescuers and evacuees,
guaranteeing communications and collecting information that is vital for
planning and organising the emergency operation. This workshop focuses on
pervasive networked sensing and decision making, both wired and wireless,
geared towards emergency management. PerNEM 2010 addresses leading edge
research in these areas through the use of sensing, communication, decision
support, simulation tools and modelling methods with focus on system design,
optimisation and experimental evaluation.


PerNEM  will  bring  together contributions  which include but are not
limited to the following areas:

    * Networked sensors for emergency management
    * Pervasive middleware for emergency management
    * Decentralised algorithms for pervasive systems
    * Self-aware and self- adaptive network design and evaluation
    * Network self-healing, security and self-defence
    * Wireless Networks for emergency support
    * Mobile sensors for disaster monitoring
    * Networked robotics for wireless communications
    * Pervasive emergency management systems
    * QoS in critical communications
