The deadline for submitting papers has now passed.

  Papers should be high-quality technical papers presenting original, unpublished research on handheld, mobile or ubiquitous computing. Potential areas of interest includetechnologies, methodologies and formalisms to support ubiquitous computing and the development of ubiquitous computing applications (e.g. novel devices, system software, software engineering techniques and interaction methods); reports on experiences of designing, developing, deploying and living with ubiquitous computing systems; and, studies of the wider implications of ubiquitous computing. We are particularly seeking papers appropriate to the interdisciplinary community represented at the UbiComp 2004 conference. Submissions should report concrete, transferable results that contribute to our understanding of ubiquitous computing and help advance the state-of-the-art.

Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the UbiComp 2004 program committee and by additional members of the ubiquitous computing research community. Papers submitted to UbiComp 2004 must not be under simultaneous review for any other conference, journal, workshop or other publication. Technical papers should be no longer than 18 pages, including an abstract of no more than 100 words, all figures and references, and should be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag LNCS format. In contrast to previous Ubicomp conferences there are no separate categories for long and short papers; all papers will be considered as full papers and should be an appropriate length for their content. Accepted papers will be published in the UbiComp 2004 Proceedings and authors are, of course, required to attend the conference to present their work.

UbiComp 2004 submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate blind reviewing: papers being submitted should not list the authors, affiliations or addresses on the first page - to preserve formatting, it would be best to leave these sections blank. Author, affiliation and address information should still be filled out on the electronic form for submitting the paper, and final camera-ready copies should have this information included. Authors are also encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize references that may reveal the identity of the authors or institutions.

All paper submissions will be handled eletronically by the EDAS system. Please use this link to submit your paper. Note that submission is a two stage process - you will need to register your paper first and then submit the final manuscript. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format and conform to the guidelines specified in the call for papers. Authors without EDAS user names will be required to register with the system using the same link as above. The site will open for submissions on March 4th and close at midnight GMT on March 12th.

   Reviewers will be instructed to maintain the confidentiality of all materials for submitted papers throughout the entire reviewing process. Submissions should contain no information that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.
