Summer School Website:

Where mobile and desktop applications can rely on eyes down interaction, the tourist aims to keep their eyes up and focussed on the painting, statue, mountain, ski run, castle, loch or other sight before them.

The Steering Committee of the International Conference on Pervasive Computing
is calling for proposals to host Pervasive 2012 the Tenth International
Conference on Pervasive Computing. The Ninth International Conference
on Pervasive Computing, is coming to San Francisco in June 2011 and its
registration is now open at

Pervasive 2011 and ISWC 2011are co-located conferences. For 2012, in

proposals will all be considered. Decisions on the ISWC 2012 component
of any bid remains the remit of the ISWC steering committee. We would
suggest groups or associated groups working in Pervasive and Wearable
Computing would be interested in a bid to host the co-located conferences.

We are dedicated to being an international conference serie…
