Lots of thanks for your help!


********************* UIC- 07 Call For Papers *************************
The 4th International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing
(UIC-07 )
- Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces -

http://www. uic-conference.org/2007/
http://ehpclab.stfx.ca/~uic07/

      Organized by Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
          In Cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society
           Hong Kong, China, July 11-13, 2007
**********************************************************

Ubiquitous computers, networks and information are paving a road towards a
smart world (SW) in which computational intelligence is distributed
throughout the physical environment to provide trustworthy and relevant
services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence (UI) will change the
computing landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and
systems to be developed; the realm of computing possibilities will be
significantly extended. By embedding digital intelligence in everyday
objects, our workplaces, our homes and even ourselves, many tasks and
processes could be simplified, made more efficient, safer and more
enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, composes these many
"smart things/u-things" to create the environments that underpin the smart
world.

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 world
of ubiquitous computing with universal services of any means/place/time to
the smart world of trustworthy services with the right means/place/time.
UIC- 07 is a successor of the 1st Int'l Workshop on Ubiquitous Smart Worlds
(USW-05, Taipei, Mar. 2005), the 2nd Int'l Symposium on Ubiquitous
Intelligence, Smart Worlds (UISW-05, Japan, Dec. 2005) and the 3rd Int'l
Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC-06, Three Gorges,
China, Sept. 2006). 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 smart worlds.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

1. Ubiquitous Intelligent/Smart Objects

  * 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 Platforms
  * Intelligent Service Association and Architecture

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, Safety and Legal/Policy Issues
  * Emotional, Ethical and Psychological Factors
  * Implication and Impact of UI and SW
  * Relations between Real and Cyber Worlds

= IMPORTANT DATES =

Submission Deadline:    January 15,  2007
Authors Notification:   March 15, 2007
Final Manuscript Due:   April 15, 2007

= ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION =

Prepare your paper with free styles not more than 15 pages in PDF file.
Submit your paper(s) at the UIC-07 submission site:
http://ehpclab.stfx.ca/~uic07/sub/

= PAPER PUBLICATION =

Accepted papers will be published by Lecture Note in Computer Science
(LNCS). Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested
to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers
will be removed from the digital library after the conference.

Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in special
issues of the Journal of Ubiquitous Computing and Intelligence (JUCI), and
the International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications (JPCC).
A set of high quality papers of the conference, after further revisions,
also will be published in an edited book published by Springer, Germany, and
in an edited book published by IDEA Publishing Group, USA, respectively.
