About

The workshop on Pervasive Technologies in Retail Environments (PeTRE) is the continuation of MIRE 2011 (http://dfki.de/mire held at MobileHCI 2011) and provides an established forum for researchers from academy and industry exploring how pervasive technologies can be embedded into retail environments to create new shopping experiences and services. The goals of the workshop are to
  • discuss the integration of pervasive technologies into retailing;
  • construct a roadmap for future integration of pervasive technologies in retailing
  • strengthen and extend the community of this rapidly developing field.
We invite both case studies discussing real-world deployments as well as original research contributions in one of the following topic areas:
  • mobile applications for retail contexts,
  • location sensing and customer flow analysis
  • pervasive public displays
  • personalization and user/customer modeling for the retail domain
  • human product interaction
  • infrastructure standards
  • integration and interaction with robots and drones
  • infrastructure combining eCommerce with brick and mortar stores
  • social media in the retail context,
  • business models and social impact.

 

Workshop format and submissions

The workshop on Pervasive Technologies in Retail Environments (PeTRE) is a full-day workshop with an extended thematic scope and aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry with multidisciplinary insights being explicitly encouraged. We ask for papers (two-pages position-statement-paper or four-pages research-paper) that address one or more of the research questions mentioned above, or that describe findings that relate to these research questions based on systems the authors have built.
We highly encourage bringing a demonstration of your prototype if available and presenting it at the Workshop!
Papers should be formatted according to the Ubicomp 2013 Workshop Format. (http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2013/calls/templates.php please remove the copyright notice). Papers should be submitted using the electronic submission system available on the website (http://www.pervasive-retail.com). At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the workshop.
Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of an international program committee. All accepted papers will be made available online on the workshop website as well as in the ACM Digital Library.

I think the workshop on Pervasive Technologies in Retail Environments (PeTRE) is a full-day workshop with an extended thematic scope and aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry with multidisciplinary insights being explicitly encouraged. I would like to say Thanks for sharing such a nice article.
