About Pervasive

PERVASIVE 2005 is the opportunity to engage with original and significant research contributions in the area of pervasive computing technologies, systems and applications. This conference will feature contributions that present advances in computing technology toward new modes of operation (ubiquitous, continuous, and self-organized) and toward new usage models (ambient, context-aware, and integral with human activity and environments).

Building on the success of previous conferences in this series held in Zurich (August 2002) and in Linz/Vienna (April 2004), PERVASIVE 2005 will include a highly selective single-track program for technical papers, accompanied by posters, videos, demonstrations, workshops, and a doctoral colloquium.

Full papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer-Verlag as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and will also be made available through digital libraries. Short papers and extended abstracts for poster, video and demo contributions will be included in adjunct proceedings.

What Else to Do in Munich?

There is a lot of information on the WWW on activities you can do in and around Munich. One starting point is discover-munich.info. German guides to Munich's restaurants and night life can be found on munichx.de and munig.com

This year the German National Flower Show is in Munich. It is a great park landscape created for this event.

Here are just a few more special things one could do but most people probably will not do :)

Climb the roof of the world famous Olympic sports stadium at Munich.
If this is not thrill enough, you might be interested in the version that includes Abseiling.
