The papers comprising this volume were undertaken by students in the course TLT 2656: Special Topics in Networking. This annual course deals with topical, pertinent issues addressing current advances in networking. In Spring 2008, the theme of this course was Pervasive Networks and Connectivity. The theme was chosen for its timeliness and relevance to current and future directions in network research. The resulting presentations and reports in the course represented only a fraction of work in this very interesting and popular area. Nevertheless the scope was broad enough that all the presentations catered for good discussion and unique perspectives. The final reports have been structured into five main categories to reflect this scope: • Part 1 Pervasive Connectivity: Users and Providers • Part 2 Near Field Communications and Ubiquitous Interaction • Part 3 Trends in Overlay Networking • Part 4 Delay Tolerant Networking • Part 5 Location and Service Discovery
