September 11—14, 2005 | Tokyo, Japan
The Seventh International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing

Call for Workshop Proposals

Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss and explore emerging areas of ubiquitous computing research with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners. Workshops may focus on any aspect of ubiquitous computing, established concerns or new ideas. The goal of the workshop is to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other and to envision future directions.

Workshops will be held on Sunday, September 11, 2005. Opportunities will be available for the outcome of workshops to be reported to the rest of the UbiComp 2005 conference through posters.

Workshop proposals should be no longer than 4 pages in the ACM SIGCHI conference publications format, and should include a summary of no more than 150 words describing the theme(s) of the workshop, a longer description of the workshop activities and goals, the background of the organizer(s), the maximum number of participants, the means of soliciting participation, and the means of selecting participants.

Accepted workshops will be publicized via an announcement to the UbiComp 2005 distribution list 2 weeks after organizers are notified. Organizers of accepted workshop proposals must notify prospective participants of acceptance of position papers no later than July 25, and are encouraged to establish position paper deadlines and timelines to accommodate this constraint.

Abstracts of accepted Workshop proposals will be published in the Conference Supplement that will be circulated to attendees at the conference; they will not be incorporated into the main UbiComp 2005 Conference Proceedings.

UbiComp 2005 requires electronic submission. Please email your proposal, as a PDF attachment, directly to the Workshop Chairs, at .
