UbiSafe 2011 : The 3rd IEEE International Symposium on UbiSafe Computing
Call For Papers
Computers are now available anytime, anywhere, by different means,
and distributed unobtrusively throughout the everyday environments
in which physical objects/artifacts embedded with invisible computers
are sensible and networked locally and globally. Such "any" computers
open tremendous opportunities to provide numerous novel
services/applications in both real world and cyber spaces, and exist
ubiquitously in our daily life, working, learning, traveling,
entertainment, medicine, etc. Although it is yet unclear what exactly
the real-cyber integrated worlds would be, there is no doubt that they must be safe.
The 3rd IEEE International Symposium on Ubisafe Computing (UbiSafe-11)
will be held in conjunction with "The 10th IEEE International Conference
on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom-11)".
It follows the success of UbiSafe-09 in Chengdu, China. It aims at bringing together
researchers and practitioners in the world working on theories and technologies for
ubiquitous artifacts to function safely for different purposes; for ubiquitous
systems to work safely in various situations; and for ubiquitous environments to
behave safely with all people.
Scope and Interests
IEEE UbiSafe-11 is an international symposium for presenting and discussing emerging
ideas and trends in aspects of UbiSafe computing, but are not limited to:
UbiSafe concepts, definitions, basic elements, models, frameworks and methodologies,
human-centric paradigms, multi-disciplinary/inter-disciplinary/trans-disciplinary
approaches, semantics, ontologies, UbiSafe requirements and formal specifications
and validations, information assurance, etc.
Security and privacy protection, reliability and fault tolerance, risk analysis,
uncertainty and exception handling, socially intelligent agents, intuitive/natural
user interface, interaction design, context-awareness, intelligent computing,
service-oriented computing, hardware, software, middleware, etc.
Embedded systems, wearable systems, augmented systems, context-based systems,
communication systems, safety-critical systems, survivable systems, persistent
systems, autonomous/autonomic systems, proactive systems, network infrastructure,
sensor networks, etc.
Smart objects, smart environments, information appliance and artifacts,
everyday gadgets, robots, safety care, healthcare, medical care and services,
working, learning, traveling, entertainment, case studies, etc.
(5) Measures and Assessments
UbiSafe attributes and measures for safety, trust, faith, amenity, easiness,
comfort, satisfaction and worryness, UbiSafe levels and relations, UbiSafe quality,
assessment criteria and authority, subjective and objective assessment standards,
evaluation methodologies, testing, measuring and monitoring tools, etc.
(6) Human Factors and Social Issues
Human and social aspects of UbiSafe, UbiSafe sources and factors, social rules,
regulations and laws, human factors, human behavior analysis, modeling of human
feelings, traditional and cultural issues, ethical issues, etc.
Submission and Publication Information
The accepted papers from this symposium will be published by IEEE Computer Society
in IEEE TrustCom-11 conference proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex and ISTP).
Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE conference proceedings
format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Papers should be submitted through the paper
submission system at the symposium website. Each paper is limited to 6 pages
(or 10 pages with the over length charge). Distinguished papers, after further
revisions, will be invited for possible publication in special issues of prestige
international journals indexed by SCI and EI (pending). Submitting a paper to
the symposium means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should
attend the symposium and present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers
will be removed from the digital library after the symposium and their affiliations
will be notified.
(1) Paper submission due: June 30, 2011
(2) Notification of decision: August 30, 2011
(3) Camera-ready papers due: September 30, 2011
