You are invited to contribute original and exciting ideas to UbiComp 2004, the Sixth International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing. UbiComp is the premier venue for presenting research and development achievements in the design, implementation, deployment and evaluation of computing technology that migrates beyond our desktops onto our hands, heads and clothing, and becomes increasingly embedded in a wide variety of other objects, such as walls, cars and appliances.

We welcome submissions that report on innovations in ubiquitous, mobile and pervasive computing, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • New technologies and devices for ubiquitous computing

  • New applications of ubiquitous computing technologies

  • New interfaces and modes of interactions between people and ubiquitous computing devices, applications or environments

  • New infrastructures and architectures for supporting ubiquitous computing applications

  • Evaluations, and evaluation methodologies, for assessing the impact of ubiquitous computing devices, applications or environments

  • Social issues and implications of ubiquitous computing


Submissions to UbiComp 2004 must be original, unpublished work and may not be simultaneously submitted to any other conference or journal.

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 system using the same link as above. The site will open for submissions on March 4th and close at midnight GMT on March 12th.

Papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Each conference attendee will receive a printed copy of the proceedings; additional copies can be purchased through Springer-Verlag. The proceedings will also be made available through digital libraries. Submissions must be in the LNCS format; full instructions and templates are available at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

A Conference Supplement, containing extended abstracts for Interactive Posters, Demonstrations, Videos, Doctoral Colloquium papers, and Workshop and Panel descriptions, will be printed and given to conference attendees. Electronic versions of these materials will also be posted on the UbiComp 2004 web site. Submissions for these participation categories must use the ACM SIGCHI conference publications format.
