IEEE Pervasive 2021 : Special Issue on the Future of Work: COVID-19 and Beyond


Advances in pervasive computing are rapidly changing the way we work. Pervasive computing can improve the way workers connect into productive teams; it vastly improves the ability of organizations to collect and process data; and it provides new tools for using data in feedback loops that affect the physical or virtual world, both as personalized, small-scale interventions and as broad, large-scale actions.

Call For Paper

Example topics include, but are not limited to:

Tools for remote work: working from home, working while commuting, and meetings with remote participants
New ways of getting work done: techniques for interleaving work; easy resumption, engagement, and disengagement; and incorporating well-being needs in productivity tools
Technologies for the future of work: networking, augmented reality, virtual reality, wearable devices, and human-robot collaboration
Supporting worker well-being: maintaining work-life boundaries, supporting physical movement, and facilitating work attachment and detachment
Matching worker skills with job opportunities: assessing worker skills, matching existing skills to new job opportunities, and peer-networks for learning new skills
Inclusion and accessibility: technology that is built for equality and technology that supports all abilities
Security and privacy: protecting the pervasive-computing work infrastructure from malicious actors and maintaining privacy while providing personalized support for work and well-being
Novel ways of measuring outcome: rewarding performance so that it takes into account an individual’s unique needs, incorporating well-being as an integral part of productivity, fostering and measuring creativity and innovation, and supporting self-reflection by workers
Novel applications of pervasive computing to support future jobs and work practices
