                         CALL FOR PAPERS

   ** 1st Workshop on Pervasive Group Communication (IEEE PerGroup) **

                 URL: http://pergroup.realmv6.org

                 Miami, FL, USA, December 6, 2010,

             held in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2010,

             and co-sponsored by IEEE HCCTC sub-committee,
             G-Lab, and The unbelievable Machine Company

Group communications have passed from research to deployment and back to
a research issue. Newly deployed services, in particular IPTV, P2P
content distribution, and collaborative applications, are stimulating
current research on multicast, broadcast, concast, and anycast. Emerging
design issues for a future multi-service Internet combined with the
dynamic development of wireless access techonologies challenge the
community to rethink the position of group communications along the

The PerGroup workshop invites the community to share efforts in search
of seamless, pervasive group services, and to discuss directions on a
human-centric multi-service Inter-networking architecture. We welcome
contributions that design new solutions or analyze existing deployments,
but also those that present striking problem statements or early
conceptual work.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

System Design & Methodology:
   - Architectures and protocols for fixed, wireless and ad hoc networks
   - Protocols and interfaces for intuitive group communications
   - Intra- and Inter-domain group communication
   - Native, overlay (including P2P) and hybrid multicast
   - Topology analysis & measuring, mining and modeling of
   - media-rich social networks
   - Measurement, simulation and analytical studies as well as deployment

Supporting Technologies:
   - Multipath routing / extension of emerging routing schemes
   - Cooperative relaying and network coding
   - Service placement and service location
   - Security and privacy issues for multicast, anycast, and broadcast
   - Real-time and QoS aspects

   - Adaptive content distribution, e.g., video broadcasting
   - Application-layer traffic optimization and provider interaction
   - Multicast & anycast in a future multi-service Internet
   - New data distribution models to facilitate group communication
   - Frameworks for human centric based group communications

Full paper: June 25, 2010
Notification: August 12, 2010
Final version: August 31, 2010

Authors are invited to submit full papers of up to five double-column,
IEEE conference-style pages. One additional page will be allowed with
additional publication fee. All submitted papers will be carefully
evaluated by at least three reviewers based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Accepted
papers will appear in the IEEE GLOBECOM proceedings and will be included
in IEEE digital library.

At least one of the authors of accepted papers must attend the workshop
to present the paper. An accepted paper must be registered before the
registration deadline. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from
distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if
the paper is not presented at the workshop. In case of double
submissions or (self-)plagiarism, the paper will be excluded from the
technical program.
