2nd International Conference on Pervasive and Embedded Computing and Communication Systems (PECCS) Venue: Rome, Italy Event Date: 24-26 February, 2012 PECCS 2012 will be held in conjunction with VISIGRAPP 2012 Registration to PECCS allows free access to the VISIGRAPP conference (as a non-speaker) Scope Pervasive and embedded computing and communication is a paradigm that aims at providing trustworthy computing solutions and communication services all the time and everywhere. This entails the need for an interdisciplinary field of R&D that combines signal processing with computer hardware and software technologies, and utilizes and integrates pervasive, wireless, embedded, wearable and/or mobile systems. Applications range from ambient intelligence to ubiquitous multimedia, multidimensional signal processing, sensors, robotics, integrated communication systems and nanotechnologies. PECCS will bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the theory and applications in these areas. Conference Areas 1. MOBILE AND PERVASIVE COMPUTING 2.
