Submission Deadline: July 06, 2020 At 11:59 PM HAST


UbiComp and ISWC 2020 invite proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials to be held at the 2020 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), and the International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC). All tutorials will be held on Monday, September 12, and Tuesday, September 13, 2020 before the main conference. The UBICOMP & ISWC Tutorials program is intended to disseminate information to conference attendees on recently emerging topics and trends, provide surveys of complementary techniques to those commonly studied within the UbiComp and Wearable communities, and inform industrial practitioners on the state-of-the-art within the field. We encourage submissions of proposals on topics in the general areas of Ubiquitous Computing and Wearable Computing. Tutorials should be given by experts in the subject matter.


Should you wish to discuss ideas for a tutorial proposal prior to the submission deadline, feel free to contact the Chairs of the Workshops and Tutorials Program at


The proposal should be prepared as a document using the template described in the template information. It should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract. The cover sheet should include the following information:

  • Title and length of the tutorial. Half-day tutorials are 3 hours plus breaks, and fully-day tutorials are 6 hours plus breaks.
  • Short abstract (300 words)
  • Intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced), prerequisite knowledge or skills required
  • Previous offering(s) of the tutorial
  • Detailed contact information of all presenters (and indication of the main contact person)
  • Brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each presenter, highlighting relevant experience in presenting tutorials, teaching classes, organizing summer schools, etc.

The extended abstract (max. 3 pages) should include the following sections:

  • Motivation

  • Brief outline of the topics to be covered
  • Relevance to the community and references to related resources (and tutorials at related conferences)

  • Format and detailed schedule

  • Type of support materials to be supplied to attendees

Upon acceptance, the extended abstract is expected to be revised and adapted for inclusion in the supplemental proceedings and ACM Digital Library.


Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the workshops and tutorials chairs, who will evaluate each proposal based on how compelling and useful they expect it to be to UbiComp and ISWC attendees. The chairs will consider several factors during the selection process, including:

  • Timeliness and relevance of the tutorial’s topic

  • Expected interest level of the topic in the community

  • Feasibility of the planned activities and schedule

  • Overall balance of topics in the Tutorials program. If multiple submissions on the same or similar topics are received, the organizers may be encouraged to merge their tutorials.


Please submit your proposal via email to the workshop chairs at The deadline for submission is Wednesday, April 15, 2020 AoE. The submission must be maximum of 4 pages and should be a single PDF file. Please download and use the required templates to prepare the proposal as described in the template information.

Publication Date

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the UbiComp / ISWC 2020 conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)

Past Conferences

The ACM international joint conference on pervasive and ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) is the result of a merger of the two most renowned conferences in the field: pervasive and ubicomp. while it retains the name of the latter in recognition of the visionary work of mark weiser, its long name reflects the dual history of the new event. a complete list of both ubicomp and pervasive past conferences is provided below.

UbiComp 2017, Maui, USA

UbiComp 2016, Heidelberg, Germany
