Over the last fifty years, computational intelligence has evolved from
logic-based artificial intelligence, nature-inspired soft computing, and
social-oriented agent technology to cyber-physical integrated ubiquitous
intelligence towards Pervasive Intelligence (PI). The International
Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing is intended to cover all
kinds of these intelligent paradigms as well as their applications in
various pervasive computing domains. PICom-2018 is the conference on
Pervasive Intelligence and Computing, previously held as PCC (Las Vegas,
USA, 2003 and 2004), PSC (Las Vegas, USA, 2005), PCAC (Vienna, Austria,
2006, and Niagara Falls, Canada, 2007), IPC-2007 (Jeju, Korea, December
2007), IPC-2008 (Sydney, Australia, December 2008), and since 2009 as the
name PICom. IEEE PICom 2018 will be held on 12-15 August 2018 in Athens,
Greece, co-located with IEEE CyberSciTech 2018, IEEE DASC 2018 and DataCom
2018. It aims to bring together computer scientists and engineers, to
discuss and exchange experimental and theoretical results,
work-in-progress, novel designs, and test-environments or test-beds in the
important areas of Pervasive Intelligence and Computing.

Authors are invited to submit their original research work that has not
previously been published or under review in any other venue. Papers should
be prepared in IEEE CS Proceedings format and submitted via EDAS systems (
https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=24494). Research papers should explore a
specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with
experimental results. A regular (full) paper is between 6-8 pages. A WiP,
workshop, or special session paper should be between 4-6 pages and a poster
paper should be between 2-4 pages. Some papers originally submitted as full
can be accepted as short papers or posters during the review process. In
such cases, the authors will need to reduce the paper accordingly when
preparing the camera-ready version. At least one of the authors of any
accepted paper is requested to register and present the paper at the



Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for
fast-track publication in regular or special issues of prestigious
journals. The following journals are already confirmed:

1 - Information Fusion - Elsevier - Impact Factor: 5.667 (

2 - World Wide Web journal - Springer (www.Springer.com/11280 ) -  Special
Issue on Smart Computing and Cyber Technology for Cyberization

3 - MDPI Sensors (
-  Special Issue on "Pervasive Intelligence and Computing"
