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 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 IUCC 2017 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards the design, implementation and evaluation of ubiquitous computing and communications technologies,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. IUCC 2017 follows the tradition of a successful series of conferences that has been held all along the world, in places as Granada(Spain) in 2016, Liverpool (UK) in 2015, Chengdu (China) in 2014, or Melbourne (Australia) in 2013.

Part II: Call for Workshop Proposals, IEEE IUCC 2017, Guangzhou, China, December 12-15, 2017
Call for Workshop Proposals

The IEEE IUCC 2017 Workshops provide vibrant opportunities for academic researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experiences, original research achievements and practical development products on specific new challenges and emerging issues. The themes of the IEEE IUCC 2017 Workshops should be related to the scopes of the IEEE IUCC 2017 main conference, reflecting to advances in all aspects of ubiquitous computing and communications.

The organizers of the IEEE IUCC 2017 Workshops shall have responsibility of soliciting call for papers, forming program committee on reviewing and selection of papers as well as planning workshop program. The registration fees for workshops will be determined by and paid to the main conference other than the workshops. The main conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, meeting rooms, coffee breaks, lunches, dinners, proceedings, etc.

The proceedings of the IEEE IUCC 2017 Workshops will be published by IEEE Computer Society (indexed by EI Compendex).

Prospective Workshop Organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to IEEE IUCC 2016 Workshop Chairs via email by May 15, 2017:
- Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation)
- Objectives, scopes, and contributions to the main conference (up to 1 page)
- Short bios of the key organizers and their experiences on conference/workshop organization
- Procedures for selecting papers, plans for advertising call for papers, and intentions for organizing journal special issues if possible
- The expected number of participants
- A tentative list of program committee members
- The workshop website URL address if available

Approved workshops should strictly follow the Important Dates of the main conference, particularly the Author Notification Date (September 15, 2017) and the Camera-ready Paper Due Date (October 15, 2017). The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But, a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 2 or 3 peer reviews.

Look forward to your stimulating proposals and contributions to IEEE IUCC 2017 Workshops!
