Pervasive computing creates a networked computing infrastructure aiming to assist in everyday activities in a seamless and unobtrusive way. The basic building blocks of this technology are wireless devices such as sensors, actuators, RFID, smartphones, etc.

Computational intelligence in this context is essential as information from different networked devices should be combined and assessed, and then proper actions should be quickly inferred in response to events occurring in the deployment area.

This special issue will focus on computational intelligence techniques that can be employed in pervasive computing, and will also identify new possibilities, opportunities and challenges arising in that respect.
