Our sincere apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             CALL FOR PAPERS

    The 7th International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing
              - Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces -

                   UIC 2010 (http://www.nwpu.edu.cn/uic2010/)

                       Xi'an, China, October 26-29, 2010
                     Technically Sponsored by IEEE CS TCSC

         Co-located with ATC 2010 (http://www.nwpu.edu.cn/atc2010/)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's New:
--------------
1. Selected best papers of UIC 2010 will be published in the special issues of:
   * Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (Springer, SCI-E)
   * International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive Communications Systems (Inderscience)

2. The paper submisson site for UIC 2010 is now open.

Ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and information are paving the way towards a smart world in which computational intelligence is distributed throughout the physical environment to provide reliable and relevant services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence will change the computing landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and systems to be developed and the realm of computing possibilities will be significantly extended. By enhancing everyday objects with intelligence, many tasks and processes could be simplified, the physical spaces where people interact like the workplaces and homes, could become more efficient, safer and more enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, uses these many “smart things or u-things” to create smart environments, services and applications.

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. Research on ubiquitous intelligence is an emerging research field covering many disciplines. A series of grand challenges exist to move from the current level of computing services to the smart world of adaptive and intelligent services. Started in 2005, the series of UIC conferences has been held in Taipei, Nagasaki, Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong, Oslo and Brisbane. UIC 2010 will include a highly selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the area of ubiquitous intelligence and computing, UIC 2010 will offer a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in developing intelligent/smart objects, environments and systems.
