Call For Papers

Submission of full papers is now closed.

Ubicomp 2006 welcomes original, high-quality research contributions in the area of ubiquitous, pervasive and handheld computing systems and their applications. 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 original research that contributes to our understanding of ubiquitous computing and help advance the state of the art. Examples of appropriate areas of inquiry include:

  • Improving natural interaction (e.g. applied sensing, fusion and reasoning, AI and speech technologies for Ubicomp, increasing machine understanding of human action & vice versa)
  • Constructing ubicomp systems (e.g., systems and toolkit support for constructing, maintaining and deploying and prototyping Ubicomp environments)
  • Embedding computation (e.g. novel user interfaces, computational and sensing/ actuator platforms, assistive technolgies, applied to Ubicomp)
  • Understanding ubicomp and its consequences (e.g. conceptual models, lessons learnt, user studies and results from Ubicomp experiments)
  • Deploying ubicomp technologies (e.g. privacy, security, and trust, real-world and deployment experiences, studies of ubicomp settings)

Ubicomp 2006 seeks papers that reflect the full breadth and scope of ubiquitous computing research, including conceptual development, empirical investigations, technological advances, application experiences, and more. Authors should write for the broader Ubicomp audience, however, and make clear how their work contributes to the whole.

Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. Papers submitted must not have been previously published or 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 here. 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.

Important Dates

March 31, 2006, 5pm PST. Deadline.
June 9, 2006. Notification.

Call for Videos

Videos are increasingly becoming an integral part of the UbiComp conference series: they offer the chance to showcase emerging technologies, prototype systems, and new approaches to using ubiquitous computing. Videos are especially useful for illustrating complex systems and new interactions with systems in special environments that would not easily be presented as demonstrations at the conference.

We encourage submission of videos both as new material and as supplementals to paper submissions (e.g., in order to illustrate particular aspects of a system). As with other submission categories, video submissions should not have been previously presented in any other formal video program.

The video program will be shown at a special session at the conference, and will be published on a DVD and distributed to conference attendees (although copyright will be retained by the authors). A panel of international reviewers will review videos for their technical content, interest, and relevance to the ubiquitous computing community. Other important review aspects will be the video's communication effectiveness and production quality.

Accepted electronic submission formats are: MPEG1 and MPEG2, AVI file with MPEG4 (DivX codecs) and Apple QuickTime with high resolution. MPEG2 format is strongly encouraged. For other electronic formats and for tape formats please contact the video chairs in advance. Video submissions should be 4 to 8 minutes long. Longer videos will be subject to stricter review criteria. Rough videos in progress will be considered, but will (if tentatively accepted) be subject to a second review process after final production. If the video is accepted, a high quality format, suitable for DVD production, will be required for the final version.

In addition to submitting a video file, authors must also submit a short paper with a maximum of 2 pages in the ACM SIGCHI conference publications formathttp://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html), including all figures and references, for each video submission (though you don't need to leave space for the copyright notice). This should include the title, authors, affiliations and an abstract of no more than 150 words. Papers of accepted videos will be published in the Adjunct Proceedings that will be circulated to attendees at the conference; they will not be incorporated into the main UbiComp 2006 Conference Proceedings.

Video submissions and corresponding papers should be uploaded to an FTP server; contact Marc Langheinrich via email (langheinrich at inf-dot-ethz-dot-ch) for more detailed instructions on how to access the server."

Call for Demos

The Ubicomp conference’s Demonstrations Program offers an excellent way to showcase tangible results of ubiquitous computing research and development to over 500 attendees from academia and industry. A successful demo communicates ideas and concepts in a powerful way that a regular presentation cannot. We invite you to contribute your vision of the ubicomp experience to the Demonstrations Program at the UbiComp 2006 conference. We particularly encourage demonstrations that include participation by conference attendees and provoke discussion about issues within the field of ubiquitous computing.

We seek proposals for demonstrations of ubiquitous computing technologies across the full milieu of everyday life: office, home, street, park, train, automobile, bedroom, bathroom, work, play, desktop, handheld, worn, public, private, community, individual, shared, and personal. We welcome a wide range of submission from scenarios involving innovative solutions of focused tasks as well as playful pursuits.

There will be a special Demonstrations and Poster Reception during the main conference, when conference attendees will be able to interact with demonstrations. Additionally, we encourage presenters to showcase their demos during this conference banquet, which will be held outdoors on the lawn of the UC Irvine campus. This provides a unique opportunity for systems that could benefit from being outdoors, especially those that use GPS.


All submissions will be peer-reviewed to ensure a high quality demonstrations program. Each demonstration will be reviewed by at least two members of the demonstration review committee. In an electronic discussion, the committee will make final decisions on which submissions to accept.
Proposals will be judged on their relevance for the ubicomp community, level of innovation, technical merit, conceptual contribution and the potential to include participation by conference attendees. Furthermore, to make a successful demo submission, you need to have a strategy to present visitors the main points in a short time. You must also convince the committee that you are capable of installing and running the demo at the conference.

Demonstrations do not have the same requirements on originality as papers and posters. It is acceptable to submit a demonstration even if the main points have been published at the UbiComp conference (including this year) or elsewhere. However, the demonstration format should still add significantly to any previous presentations. To make it easier to judge this, you must provide a complete history of previous presentations of the submitted work and work directly related to it.

A demonstration is not the right forum to promote commercial products. In this case, please instead consider becoming a sponsor or exhibitor.


A demonstration submission requires two parts:

  1. A demonstration abstract that describes the technology being exhibited and discusses the novelty and distinguishing ideas or approaches it brings to the ubiquitous computing community. The demonstration abstract will be published in the Conference Supplement and should therefore be self-contained. It should be a maximum of 2 pages, in the ACM SIGCHI conference publications format, including all figures and references. Please make sure that your submitted abstract complies to all the formatting guidelines and is ready for publication, since there will be no time to make major revisions.
  2. A demonstration supplement that details how the demo will be executed in practice, and how visitors will interact with it during the conference. The interaction can be described in the form of a short usage scenario, storyboard sketch, screenshots, illustrations, photos, and/or video documentation. The demonstration supplement should also include the various technical requirements such as preferred setting, space, power, networking, lighting, acoustical, and other special equipment. A demonstration supplement submission template is available at the bottom of this webpage. Demonstration supplement materials are for the purposes of review only and will not be published. A template for demonstration supplements is provided below.

Your submission should be sent as a single PDF file to the following address: demos-2006@ubicomp.org. The subject line should read: UbiComp Demo Submission - NAME OF MAIN CONTACT. The name of the attached file should similarly be: NAME OF MAIN CONTACT.pdf. Links to additional material (videos, etc.) should be included both in the mail and in the supplement.

You will be required to install your demonstration in the conference venue on September 17, and have it packed away by the end of the conference, on September 21.

You are required to have your demonstration up and running throughout the Demonstrations and Poster Reception. In addition, we strongly encourage you to have your demo staffed and available throughout the conference, especially during breaks.

The conference will at minimum provide a space for your demo, a table and chairs, and a power connection. If you need any special equipment you should provide that yourself, including projectors, audio amplification, wireless LAN, etc. Please specify all needs in your demonstration supplement so that we can plan the demo area accordingly.

Ubicomp employs a double-blind review process. Please prepare an anonymous submission, without listing the names or affiliations of authors, nor acknowledgments of collaborations or funding support. Citations to your own previous work should be in the third person where appropriate, or simply anonymized if this is not possible.

Submitting papers

Paper submissions are being handled by the EDAS system [http:// edas.info/]. You will require an EDAS account in order to be able to submit their paper (this can be created during the submission process). Submission can be carried out as follows:

1. Visit http://edas.info and click on 'go to the current list of conferences and special issues'. You will be asked to login (or create a user account then login as appropriate).

2. Click on the 'submit paper' link at top left of the page and either locate 'Ubicomp 2006' from the list of conferences accepting submissions and click on the 'new paper icon' (or click here [http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=4736&] to skip directly to the paper submission screen.)

3. Paper submission is two phase. You need first to register your paper (title, authors, abstract and select categories that best reflect the content of the paper). We ask you to complete the entire form as the keywords will help us in assigning reviewers with the most appropriate expertise to review your work. Once you hit 'submit' you are able to add your co-authors.

4. You can click on the 'manuscript' icon to upload the PDF version of your paper. You can continue to upload revised versions up until the submission deadline (31st March 2006, 5pm PST).

UbiComp 2006 Open Session

Do you have something you want to say about ubiquitous computing? Do you want to say it at the premiere international conference in the field?

We invite you to submit your work and ideas to a new type of track at the UbiComp 2006 conference - the UbiComp Open Session

More Information about the UbiComp Open Session

The UbiComp Open Session welcomes controversial ideas, novel prototypes, failed but valuable user studies, bold experiments, and anything else that can give a fresh perspective on ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence, information appliances, smart artefacts and mobile applications. We particularly invite submissions that explore technical or practical limitations in current ubicomp technologies; that introduce promising, although currently non-viable, ubicomp technologies; that critique the current state of ubicomp, or assumptions in the field; and that explore topics outside current discussion in the field.

The UbiComp conference is the leading venue to present results in ubiquitous computing. It is also highly competitive, in particular for paper presentations. Therefore we will experiment with a new form of submission and review process, where everything is completely open. We will use a novel on-line reviewing system, from which the chairs will select approximately six submissions to be presented in a high-profile session at UbiComp 2006.

The UbiComp Open Session is:

  • Open format: everything can be submitted, everything will be considered
  • Open reviewing: reviews and discussions will take place publicly on-line and non-anonymously
  • Open presentations: traditional paper presentations are fully acceptable, but if you want to build a system from scratch, perform a stand-up comedy routine, run a live demo, organize an audience participation event, or anything else, feel free!
  • Open for business: come and join us at UbiComp 2006!
