After rigorous peer-review, the following papers have been accepted for presentation at this micro-workshop:

1. A Tutorial Introduction to Information Networks: Part-I

Srinath Srinivasa

Abstract: This paper, as part of a multi-part series aims to provide a tutorial introduction to the growing field of the theory of information networks. Information networks are networks of information processing elements set up to meet information needs in any population. This part of the tutorial takes a philosophical perspective on information networks and motivates its significance. This is done by contrasting information exchange with material exchange and providing examples of information networks from nature. The paper then sets a roadmap for the rest of the tutorials to follow.

2. User Authentication in a Pervasive Environment

Karthick Lakshmanan

Abstract: Pervasive computing is a storehouse of opportunities to do research in multitudes of challenging issues with the objective of providing a minimally obtrusive and seamless computing environment to the users. To achieve this aim, the user should be able to access information through different computing environments on the go. The user access should be authenticated to have a secure access to the computing environment. Thus, user authentication systems form an integral part of the overall pervasive environment. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of the challenges associated with the design of a secure and seamless user authentication system for a pervasive environment and discusses the proposed solutions in related researches.
