Welcome to the second issue of IEEE Pervasive Computing. The call for papers invited descriptions of efforts to create or use integrated pervasive computing environments. We welcomed both unifying overviews of projects and focused descriptions of specific aspects of those projects. The inaugural issue consisted entirely of invited papers, so this was our first call for external submissions. Despite short notice, we received 19 submissions??a clear indication of the level of interest in pervasive computing. Of these, we selected eight; another six will appear in future issues. The eight articles are evenly balanced between broad system descriptions and more focused discussions of supporting infrastructures for pervasive computing. Overall, the articles in the issue span a broad range of emerging technologies and expose many thought-provoking ideas.
