The growth of wireless embedded technology and their advancements are very rapid and tremendous strides in this realm. However, the industries strive to get and make use of computing devices to be faster, inexpensive and tiny without sacrificing sophistication and versatility. In the realm of wireless communication and mobile computing with the fast changing technologies and customer-driven product development the researchers and design engineers have to stride with the industries¡¦ ultimately end-users¡¦ requirement. Tremendous developments in such technologies as wireless communications and networking, mobile computing and handheld devices, embedded systems, wearable computers, sensors, RFID tags, smart spaces, middleware, software agents, and the like, have led to the evolution of pervasive computing platforms as natural successor of mobile computing systems. The goal of pervasive computing is to create ambient intelligence where network devices embedded in the environment provide unobtrusive connectivity and services all the time, thus improving human experience and quality of life without explicit awareness of the underlying communications and computing technologies.
The main aim of this conference is to bring experts, researchers, faculty and students together to discuss about the technological advancements.
