Short Paper Track

Pervasive 2002 also features a selected number of late breaking short papers, which were presented during a special short paper track on Wednesday (two parallel sessions from 10:15 to 11:15). The following 13 papers have been selected from over 40 submissions:

Short Paper Session 1

Short Paper Session 2

Demos & Exhibitions Track

An integral part of the Pervasive 2002 conference was a special demos and exhibitions track, showcasing both industry applications and research prototypes that turn pervasive computing visions into reality. All exhibits were presented at a special demo track on Tuesday (from 11:30 to 12.30). However, presenters were free to demonstrate their exhibits throughout the conference, including the welcome reception on Monday evening and the various coffee breaks on each day, allowing conference participants to browse through and interact with each display at their leisure.

The following 17 exhibitions had been on display during Pervasive 2002:

Panel Discussion

Tuesday evening (from 16:45 to 18:00) featured a Panel Discussion with the title Privacy in Pervasive Computing: Pervasive PETs?!, focussing on how technology can help to protect privacy in various pervasive computing scenarios. The following four panelists discussed their views on differences, concepts, and challenges of privacy solutions for pervasive computing: Questions? Contact <>
