Pervasive Tutorials 2008

Pervasive Tutorials 2008

Pervasive 2008 will host a day of short tutorials highlighting fundamentals of pervasive computing. The instructors were invited based on their research experience and standing in the Pervasive community.

The tutorials are intended as a broad introduction for researchers and practitioners. The tutorials, which will be presented in sequence in a single track, are offered as an extra cost, single package for attendees of Pervasive 2008. Hard copies of the tutorial presentation materials will be available to all registered attendees at the tutorial session.

Registration for the tutorial session is separate from registration for the main conference.
