Papers should be high-quality technical papers presenting original,
unpublished research on handheld, mobile or ubiquitous computing.
Potential areas of interest includetechnologies, methodologies and
formalisms to support ubiquitous computing and the development of
ubiquitous computing applications (e.g. novel devices, system software,
software engineering techniques and interaction methods); reports on
experiences of designing, developing, deploying and living with
ubiquitous computing systems; and, studies of the wider implications of
ubiquitous computing. We are particularly seeking papers appropriate to
the interdisciplinary community represented at the UbiComp 2004
conference. Submissions should report concrete, transferable results
that contribute to our understanding of ubiquitous computing and help
advance the state-of-the-art.
The deadline for submitting papers has now passed.|
Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance
of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and
presentation. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the
UbiComp 2004 program committee and by additional members of the
ubiquitous computing research community. Papers submitted to UbiComp
2004 must not be under simultaneous review for any other conference,
journal, workshop or other publication. Technical papers should be no
longer than 18 pages, including an abstract of no more than 100 words,
all figures and references, and should be formatted according to the
Springer-Verlag LNCS format. In contrast to previous Ubicomp
conferences there are no separate categories for long and short papers;
all papers will be considered as full papers and should be an
appropriate length for their content. Accepted papers will be published
in the UbiComp 2004 Proceedings and authors are, of course, required to
attend the conference to present their work.
UbiComp 2004 submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate
blind reviewing: papers being submitted should not list the authors,
affiliations or addresses on the first page - to preserve formatting,
it would be best to leave these sections blank. Author, affiliation and
address information should still be filled out on the electronic form
for submitting the paper, and final camera-ready copies should have
this information included. Authors are also encouraged to take care
throughout the entire document to minimize references that may reveal
the identity of the authors or institutions.
All paper submissions will be handled eletronically by the EDAS system. Please
use this link to submit your paper. Note that
submission is a two stage process - you will need to register your paper
first and then submit the final manuscript. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF
format and conform to the guidelines specified in the call for papers.
Authors without EDAS user names will be required to register with the
using the same link as above. The site will open for submissions on
4th and close at midnight GMT on March 12th.
Reviewers will be
instructed to maintain the confidentiality of all materials for
submitted papers throughout the entire reviewing process. Submissions
should contain no information that will be proprietary or confidential
at the time of publication.
