About IEEE Pervasive Computing

IEEE Pervasive Computing delivers the latest peer-reviewed developments in pervasive, mobile, and ubiquitous computing to developers, researchers, and educators who want to keep abreast of rapid technology change. With content that's accessible and useful today, the quarterly publication acts as a catalyst for realizing the vision of pervasive (or ubiquitous) computing, described by Mark Weiser nearly a decade ago.

The essence of this vision is the creation of environments saturated with computing and wireless communication, yet gracefully integrated with human users. Many key building blocks needed for this vision are now viable commercial technologies: wearable and handheld computers, high-bandwidth wireless communication, location-sensing mechanisms, and so on. The challenge is to combine these technologies into a seamless whole. This will require a multidisciplinary approach, involving hardware designers, wireless engineers, human-computer interaction specialists, software agent developers, and so on.

The editorial board of IEEE Pervasive Computing is a distinguished collection of leaders whose expertise spans the breadth of this new field. Led by editor in chief Nigel Davies, they will help advance pervasive computing by bringing together various disciplines, including


  • hardware technologies for ubiquitous computing;
  • software infrastructure for ubiquitous computing;
  • sensing and interaction with the physical world;
  • graceful integration of human users; and
  • systems considerations, including scalability, security, and privacy.
