Summary form only given. Pervasive computing is a human-centric computational paradigm beyond desktop to achieve a convergence of the cyber, physical, and social world with smart devices, smart environments, and smart interactions. In pervasive computing environments, people will receive context-aware proactive services anytime and anywhere in a non-intrusive manner. Since Mark Weiser's vision of "the most profound technologies are those that disappear" was presented in 1991, many efforts have been made in the community to make pervasive computing a reality. This talk will provide a comprehensive overview of recent advances in this field. Trends and challenges will be reviewed, and potential applications of pervasive computing will be discussed. We will also give a brief introduction of our work.
