Call for Papers of SAINT2007 Workshop  

Ubiquitous Networking and Enablers to Context-Aware Services 

Theme of the Workshop: 
There are many emerging technologies to achieve a "ubiquitous networking," which is a federated network technology which supports various enablers such as 3G mobiles, RFID tags, sensors, actuators, etc. From a service perspective, a number of context or ambient aware services are envisaged for "ubiquitous networking." This point should be discussed with wide experience of theoretical studies and implementations. 

A service platform will manage and create services based on the context. There should be discussions how to collect and generate user context, how to create or synthesize services efficiently, and how to develop such systems using emerging software and hardware technologies. There could be also discussions how to control network performance based on user policy or service level agreement to achieve better services. Providing robust security over all ubiquitous networks in a simple fashion is an important issue associated with service provisioning to users. Keeping privacy in ubiquitous networks is also a big issue. 

The other important aspect is enablers or ubiquitous objects themselves where users are commonly faced with. What is a suitable design and implementation of such objects? How they could be connected to a ubiquitous network to provide contexts or how could they communicate with each other? 

This Workshop is one of the best opportunities to address this theme in sufficient depth and breadth, and is intended to share knowledge and exchange ideas, thereby promoting new studies and research topics in this area. 

Note that the technologies to develop the lower-layer ubiquitous network itself are out of scope of this Workshop. Please submit to and discuss at other Workshops concerning with construction of ubiquitous network itself. 

Papers and Author's Kit:

Workshop papers should be within 4 pages, no extra page is allowed. The Proceedings of the Symposium and the Workshops will be published, in separated volumes, by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Please follow the instruction on the web below for preparing your Workshop papers. http://infonet.cse.kyutech.ac.jp/conf/saint06/ > Author's Kit etc.

Papers Submission:

Papers should be sent to the Organizers at "saint-ws-ubiq-nw2007 [at-mark] lab.ntt.co.jp" no later than September 22, 2006. After a review process by Organizers and Program Committee of the Workshop, authors of accepted papers will be requested to send its final manuscript to IEEE-CS press no later than November 1, 2006. So, authors are kindly requested to submit papers as early as possible to facilitate a review process. 

Registration:

It is the IEEE policy that accepted papers can be published only when IEEE recognized that at least one author has registered for presentation. So, authors will be requested to register along with the final manuscript. SAINT Conference Registration fees include a copy of the Conference proceedings, a copy of the Workshop proceedings, admission to the Conference/Workshop sessions. 


Note: 

The date and length (a full or half day) of the Workshop will be decided by SAINT2007 Organizing Committee taking account of the number submitted of papers, and be notified on the SAINT2007 web. Please also note that, according to the SAINT2007 Organizing Committee, the Workshop is subject to cancellation when the number submitted of papers will not be enough.
