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. Regular,
work-in-progress (WiP), workshop/special session, poster papers all need
to be in IEEE CS format and submitted following the same instruction as
the main conference
( 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 conference.

Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for
fast-track publication in special issues of prestige journals.
