CFP: UIC-06 deadline only three days away (March 19, 2006)



The UIC-06 submission deadline has been extended to March 19, 2006.


********************* UIC-06 *************************

        The 3rd IFIP International Conference on
   Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC-06)
 - Building Smart Worlds on Real and Cyber Spaces -

         http://www.uic-conference.org/2006/
         http://grid.hust.edu.cn/uic06/

  Organized by Huazhong Univ. of Sci. and Tech. (HUST)
  Co-Sponsored by HUST, NSFC, 863, ChinaGrid, IFIP
  In Cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society (Applying)

    Wuhan and Three Gorges, China, September 3-6, 2006
******************************************************

Following ubiquitous computers, networks, information,
services, etc., is a road towards a smart world (SW)
created on both real and cyber spaces. A SW is mainly
characterized by ubiquitous intelligence (UI) or
computational intelligence pervasive in the physical world,
filled with ubiquitous intelligent or smart things,
that are capable of computing, communicating, and behaving
smartly with some intelligence. One of the profound implications
of such ubiquitous smart things is that various kinds and
levels of intelligence will exist ubiquitously in
everyday objects, environments, systems and even ourselves,
and possibly be extended from man-made to natural things.
"Ubicomp" or "percomp"  can be regarded as the computing of
all these intelligent/smart things/u-things, that are
essential elements and components of the SW.

A smart thing can be endowed with different levels of
intelligence, and may be context-aware, active, interactive,
reactive, proactive, assistive, adaptive, automated, sentient,
perceptual, cognitive, autonomic and/or thinking.
Intelligent/smart things is an emerging research field
covering many disciplines. A series of grand challenges exist
to move from the ubiquitous world with universal services of
any means/place/time to the SW of trustworthy services with the
right means/place/time. UIC-06 is a successor of the 2nd Int'l
Symposium on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Smart Worlds (UISW2005,
Japan, Dec. 2005) which succeeds the 1st Int'l Workshop on
Ubiquitous Smart Worlds (USW2005,Taipei, Mar. 2005). It offers
a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in
developing intelligent/smart objects, environments, and systems
as well as discuss various personal/social/physical issues
faced by UI and SWs.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

1. Ubiquitous Intelligent/Smart Objects
  * Electronic Label, Card, E-Tag and RFID
  * Embedded Chips, Sensor & Actuator
  * MEMS, NEMS, Mote & Biometric Device
  * Everyday Good, Artifact, Robot, etc.
  * Smart Appliance and Wearable Device
  * Material, Textile, Cloth, Furniture, etc.
  * Emerging Intelligent/Smart Objects
  * Embedded Software and Agents

2. Ubiquitous Intelligent/Smart Environments
  * Room, Home, Office, Laboratory, etc.
  * Building, Library, School, Campus, etc.
  * Shop, Clinic, Hospital and Health Care
  * Street, Yard, Park, Ground, City, etc.
  * Vehicle, Road, Traffic & Transportation
  * Land, Pool, Space and Hyperspace
  * Learning, Sport, Entertainment, etc.
  * Novel Intelligent/Smart Applications

3. Ubiquitous Intelligent/Smart Systems
  * Sensor, Ad Hoc & Intelligent Networks
  * Knowledge Representation and Ontology
  * Wearable, Personal and Body Area Systems
  * OS, Middleware and Intelligent Association
  * Intelligent Service Architecture, Grid & Mesh
  * Massive Agents, Swarm/Amorphous Systems
  * Proactive, Autonomic and Organic Systems
  * Novel Intelligent/Smart Systems

4. Personal/Social/Physical Aspects
  * Real/Cyber World Modeling and Semantics
  * End-User Interface, Control & Programming
  * Social/Natural/Physical Model of UI & SW
  * User/Object Identity and Activity Recognition
  * Security, Privacy, Trust and Legal/Policy Issues
  * Emotional, Ethical and Psychological Factors
  * Implication and Impact of UI and SW
  * Relations between Real and Cyber Worlds
