After a successful first PerNEM workshop in 2010, we are delighted to announce a second version of the workshop in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2012.
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 2012 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:
Selected papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of the Computer Journal.
