2nd International Workshop on Pervasive Welfare Solutions (PWS17)

pro elsevier




In conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks EUSPN 2017
18-20 September, 2017, Lund, Sweden.


The 2nd International Workshop on Pervasive Welfare Solutions (PWS17) provides an international forum on the latest technologies and research in the field of Pervasive Welfare. Most people have access to some form of mobile devices, and these devices are becoming successively more powerful, and along with expectations, able to do more and more. We are living and working within environments that can support, both computationally and technologically, many ancillary features. Traditionally welfare has not been a key concern for computing systems, however as pervasive spaces become more prevalent, the concept of Pervasive Welfare will become more important. This area highlights the importance of pervasive security, health and wellbeing. Currently, we can utilise RFID tag technologies to indicate security; we can use biometric techniques within both health and security to check for well-being, subsequently, the future for pervasive welfare is very bright.  We have the technology to create pervasive welfare systems ranging from medical facilities to childcare and by incorporating both academic and industry partners we can pave the way to a more pervasive future.

PMS 2017 will be held in Lund, Sweden (18-20 September 2017) in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN-2017).


The aim of the proposed workshop is to enhance profitable discussions between industry and academics on what pervasive welfare techniques, software, methodologies and hardware are being explored.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Pervasive Personal Security
  • Environmental Security
  • Pervasive Health Monitoring
  • Ethical, Legal and Social issues within Pervasive Welfare.
  • Pervasive Welfare Architectures
  • Methodologies of Deployment for Pervasive Welfare.
  • Pervasive Welfare Applications
  • Smart Pervasive Welfare
  • Pervasive Welfare and Personalization
  • Location-Based Services for Pervasive Welfare
