Ubicomp 2005 welcomes original, high-quality research contributions in the area of ubiquitous, pervasive and handheld computing. This conference seeks to present novel research results impacting the design and usage of ubiquitous computing technology that migrates beyond the desktop. Submissions should report concrete, transferable results that contribute to our understanding of ubiquitous computing and help advance the state of the art. Authors are invited to submit papers within the general scope of the conference in the following areas:

  • Devices : low power devices, novel device types
  • User Interfaces : embedded, novel
  • Systems : operating systems, middleware, distributed and database systems
  • Context : perception, fusion, use
  • Communication : ad-hoc, wireless, low power
  • Privacy, Security, Trust

Ubicomp 2005 will include a highly selective program for technical papers, accompanied by posters, videos, demonstrations, workshops and a doctoral colloquium.

Paper Submission

Ubicomp 2005 is seeking papers appropriate to the interdisciplinary community represented at the conference. Technically-oriented papers should clearly put their work in the context of ubiquitous computing settings, and non-technically-oriented papers should clearly put their work in the context of technical feasibility.

Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. Papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Ubicomp 2005 program committee and by additional members of the ubiquitous computing research community. Papers submitted must not be under simultaneous review for any other conference, journal, workshop or other publication. We solicit papers up to 18 pages but explicitly welcome shorter papers. All paper submissions will be treated as full papers, but it is important that their length is appropriate for their content. Papers should be formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS format. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer-Verlag as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Authors are required to attend the conference to present their work.

Paper submissions must be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize references that may reveal the identity of the authors or their institutions. Relevant references to an author's previous research should not be suppressed but instead referenced in a neutral way.

All paper submissions will be handled electronically by the EDAS system. Note that submission is a two-stage process - authors need to register their 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.

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.
