Call For Papers

The 6th International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing
- Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces -

Technically Sponsored by IEEE TF on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing
Brisbane, Australia, 7 – 10 July, 2009
Co-located with ATC'09 (

Ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and information are paving the way
towards a smart world in which computational intelligence is distributed
throughout the physical environment to provide reliable and relevant
services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence will change the computing
landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and systems to
be developed and the realm of computing possibilities will be significantly
extended. By enhancing everyday objects with intelligence, many tasks and
processes could be simplified, the physical spaces where people interact
like the workplaces and homes, could become more efficient, safer and more
enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, uses these many
"smart things/u-things" to create smart environments.

A smart thing can be endowed with different levels of intelligence, and may
be context-aware, active, interactive, reactive, proactive, assistive,
adaptive, automated, sentient, perceptual, cognitive, autonomic and/or
thinking. Research on ubiquitous intelligence is an emerging research field
covering many disciplines. A series of grand challenges exist to move from
the current level of computing services to the smart world of adaptive and
intelligent services. Started in 2005, the series of UIC conferences has
been held in Taipei, Nagasaki, Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong and Oslo.
UIC-09 will include a highly selective program of technical papers,
accompanied by workshops, panel discussions and keynote speeches.
Established as a premier venue in the area of ubiquitous intelligence and
computing, UIC-09 will offer a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and
experiences in developing intelligent/smart objects, environments and

The UIC'09 Organizing Committee invites proposals for one-day workshops
affiliated with the conference and addressing research areas related to the
conference. The workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE. Submit
workshop proposals to workshops chairs via email ( and by 15 October 2008.

Papers need to be prepared according to the LNCS format, and submitted in
PDF format via the UIC-09 submission site:


Accepted conference papers are planned to be published by Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS, EI indexed). At least one author of each accepted
paper is required to register and present their work at the conference,
otherwise the paper will not be included in the proceedings. Selected
papers, after further extensions and revisions, will be published in special
issues of prestigious journals on Pervasive Computing.
