Conference: The 5th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN)
Date of Conference: 22-25 September 2014
Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Conference Website:

The goal of the EUSPN'14 conference is to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, and managers in academia, industry, and government to address recent research results in ubiquitous and pervasive systems. EUSPN'14 will give them the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas, theories, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences on all related theoretical and practical issues. More specifically, EUSPN'14 will be focusing on the paradigm, infrastructures, models, and technologies that have significant contributions to the advancement of ubiquitous systems and pervasive networks theory, practices and their applications.

EUSPN'14 will be held in Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada. Halifax is located on the east coast of Canada and is approximately a 6-hour flight from London, UK and a 2-hour flight from Toronto, Ontario. Halifax is a vibrant and modern city, which is home to multiple academic institutions and where visitors can enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment from whale watching to Jazz festivals to world-class cuisine.
