EUCASS 2013: The 4th IEEE International Workshop on Enablers for Ubiquitous Computing and Smart Services
Held in conjunction with COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software & Applications - July 22-26, 2013 - Kyoto, Japan
MS Word CFP
Goal of the WorkshopThe aim of this workshop is to share and discuss the most advanced researches and development studies in the area of ubiquitous computing platforms and related services. This workshop will gather researchers, engineers and practitioners from academia and industry who are working in this research domain. This workshop will focus on new technical proposals, practical experiences, and a large scale experiment with widely sharing the research issues that we must solve in ubiquitous computing and service platforms. This workshop is one of the best opportunities to address the research issues and solutions in sufficient depth and breadth, and is intended to share knowledge and exchange ideas and/or actual field experiences, thereby promoting new studies and research topics in this area.
Theme and Scope of the WorkshopUbiquitous computing and service platforms cover wide range of technical domains. This includes (1) networking (including wireless) of sensors and actuators to the computing platform, (2) management of distributed databases to efficiently mine, discover, and analyze the data obtained from sensors, (3) presentation of data so as to effectively interact with people and (4) automation of action-planning based on the data and policies configured by people. The workshop may also discuss the basic technologies such as overlay networks and applications such as smart grid systems developed on these technologies.
Sensors, tags and actuators are being networked and deployed everywhere. Application of those devices using smartphones is also rapidly becoming popular – we use smartphones to check and control home appliances and building automation systems. Cloud computing technologies have enabled virtualization of these devices, and they powerfully provide Smart Services over the Internet. The enablers of Smart X (e.g., Smart City, Smart Grid, Smart House...) include those sensors, tags, actuators, phones, ubiquitous computing platforms and services. They have been also called as M2M (Machine-to-Machine) communications, and IoT (Internet-of-Things). The research topics for the emerging Smart Services are:
• sensor and actuator networks
• sensor data management
• service platforms
• service aggregation
• building/home energy management services
• green ICT, smart gird
• overlay networks
• distributed (and stream) processing and management
• delay tolerant networks for sensors
• RFID tags
• people-centric sensing, human-probe systems
• privacy protection
• how-to-deploy (feasibility study)
We respect deployable or feasible works especially inspired by social needs or industrial requirements because the future of smart services should be driven by those sociological movement.
We welcome business persons as well as academic and industrial researchers. Reports and suggestions on research, advancing technologies, business models, industrial case studies, and implementations are also welcomed. We also welcome work-in-progress paper in this workshop.
SubmissionPapers must be submitted electronically via the EUCASS 2013 Submission Page.
Follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/submission.
All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers can be submitted as regular papers (six pages), and the acceptance will depend on reviewer feedback. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2013) by the IEEE CS Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper published in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by an author.
