Call For Papers

Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC)

The technologies of computing and communications have undergone a series of evolutionary innovation over the past decades and improved the quality of human life significantly. Computing and communications in the 21st century faces an ever-increasing number of great challenges and revolutionary developments. Ubiquitous Computing and Communications is a revolutionary paradigm that aims to provide pervasive and reliable computing solutions and communication services anytime and anywhere. This emerging technology is built upon the rapid research and development advances in a wide range of key areas including wireless and sensor networks, mobile and distributed computing, embedded systems, agent technologies, autonomic communication, and information security. Ubiquitous Computing and Communications has drawn significant interests from both academia and industry and continues to attract tremendous research efforts due to its promising new business opportunity in information technology and engineering.

The 11th IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Communications (IUCC-2012) is in a series of highly successful international events, previously held as IUCC 2011(Dalian, China, August 2011), PMEO-UCNS 2010 (Atlanta, USA, April 2010), PMEO-UCNS 2009 (Rome, Italy, May 2009), PMEO-UCNS 2008 (Miami, USA, April 2008), PMEO-PDS 2007 (Long Beach, USA, March 2007), PMEO-PDS 2006 (Rhodes Island, Greece, April 2006), PMEO-PDS 2005 (Denver, USA, April 2005), PMEO-PDS 2004 (Santa Fe, USA, April 2004), PMEO-PDS 2003 (Nice, France, April 2003), PMEO-PDS 2002 (Fort Lauderdale, USA, April 2002).
IUCC-2012 will be held in Liverpool, a fantastic and popular tourist city destination in the UK. Several areas of the city centre were granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2004. Referred to as the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City, the site comprises six separate locations in the city including the Pier Head, Albert Dock and William Brown Street and includes many of the city's most famous landmarks. The conference offers an important international platform and brings together the scientists, engineers, researchers, and students from academy and industry all over the world to share their latest work, exchange experiences and discuss the state-of-the-art challenges of ubiquitous computing and communications. IUCC-2012 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards the design, implementation and evaluation of ubiquitous computing and communications technologies, systems and applications.
