[Deadline extended] CFP: The 20th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Communications (IUCC-2021), London, 20-22 December 2021
Organization: University of Exeter
Extended deadline 22 October.
The 20th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Communications (IUCC-2021)
London, UK, 20-22 December 2020
Ubiquitous Computing and Communications is a revolutionary paradigm that aims to provide pervasive and reliable computing solutions and communication services anytime and anywhere. This emerging technology is built upon the rapid research and development advances in a wide range of key areas including wireless and sensor networks, mobile and distributed computing, embedded systems, agent technologies, autonomic communication, and information security. Ubiquitous Computing and Communications has drawn significant interests from both academia and industry and continues to attract tremendous research efforts due to its promising new business opportunity in information technology and engineering. The conference offers an important international platform and brings together the scientists, engineers, researchers, and students from academy and industry all over the world to share their latest work, exchange experiences and discuss the state-of-the-art challenges of ubiquitous computing and communications. IUCC-2021 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards the design, implementation and evaluation of ubiquitous computing and communications technologies, systems and applications.
IUCC-2021 is planned to be hosted in London, UK. However, if the COVID-19 situation and associated travel restrictions remain, the conference will be held virtually. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
