Call for Videos
Research videos are an integral part of the ubiquitous computing conference series. With the category of Research Videos, UbiComp 2008 seeks research contributions, future visions, project descriptions, and concepts of ubiquitous computing technologies, systems and applications. The conference particularly values practical experience with design, deployment and use of ubiquitous systems and applications, and investigation of exciting and inspiring ideas and technologies.
We encourage submission of videos both as new material and as supplemental to paper submissions (e.g., in order to illustrate particular aspects of a system). As with other submission categories, video submissions should not have been previously presented in any other formal video program.
• 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 tools, infrastructures, architectures and techniques for designing, implementing & deploying ubiquitous computing applications
• Evaluations and evaluation methods, for assessing the impact of ubiquitous computing devices, applications or environments
• Privacy, security, trust & social issues and implications of ubiquitous computing
To be accepted, a video must be of an appropriate length for the content. It must contain no material subject to copyright (i.e., that the authors cannot grant UbiComp 2008 the right to redistribute freely), and must be easily comprehensible to English speakers. Finally, an accepted video must be standalone, i.e., the video itself (with audio soundtrack) must describe the work sufficiently, without requiring the viewer to read the abstract. Videos will be judged primarily on their communication of interesting research content, with fancy effects being a welcome but secondary consideration.
For accepted contributions, the short video paper will be published in the adjunct proceedings of Ubiquitous 2008 which will be available in printed form as well as electronically on the conference web-site. Accepted electronic submission formats are: MPEG1 and MPEG2, AVI file with MPEG4 (DivX codecs) and Apple QuickTime with high resolution. MPEG2 format is strongly encouraged. Video submissions should be 4 to 8 minutes long and at least 320x240 in size. If the video is accepted, a high quality format, suitable for DVD production, will be required for the final version.
In addition to submitting a video file, authors must also submit a short paper with a maximum of 4 pages. The papers should be formatted according to this Word  or Latex template  and submitted in PDF format using a FTP video server. Papers of accepted videos will be published in the Adjunct Proceedings that will be circulated to attendees at the conference; they will not be incorporated into the main UbiComp 2008 Conference Proceedings.
If authors have any queries regarding potential submissions, including copyright, please contact the co-chairs.
Video abstracts and video submissions should be both be uploaded through the UbiComp 2008 Videos submission page (http://precisionconference.com/~ubicomp). Video files can have a maximum size of 150 MB. Please contact the Video Co-Chairs ( email@example.com) if you have any questions concerning your submission or the submission process.
