Embedded and ubiquitous computing is an exciting paradigm that promises to
provide computing and communication services to the end users all the time
and everywhere. Its systems are now invading in every aspect of our daily
life and promise to revolutionize our life much more profoundly than
elevators, electric motors or even personal computer evolution ever did.
The emergence of this technology is a natural outcome of research and
technological advances in a variety of areas including embedded systems,
pervasive computing and communications, wireless networks, mobile computing,
distributed computing and agent technologies.

The EUC-14 conference will provide a forum for engineers and scientists in
academia, industry, and government to address all challenges including
technical, safety, social, and legal issues related to embedded and
ubiquitous computing and to present and discuss their ideas, results,
work-in-progress and experience on all aspects of embedded and ubiquitous
computing. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
1. Hardware architectures for embedded and ubiquitous computing

Submission and Publication Information:
Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE Conference
Proceedings Format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Each paper is limited to 8
pages (or 10 pages with an overlength charge). Papers should be submitted
through the EasyChair system at:
The accepted papers from this conference will be published by IEEE Computer
Society in IEEE proceedings. The program committee will select and award two
"Best Paper Awards" for this conference. Best papers are then invited to be
submitted as an extended version to the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and
Distributed Systems. Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be
considered for possible publication in special issues of prestigious
international journals.
By submitting a paper to the conference, authors assure that if the paper is
accepted, at least one author will attend the conference and present the
paper. For no-show authors, their papers will be removed from the digital
library after the conference and their affiliations will be notified.
