We are pleased to offer companies the opportunity to be corporate sponsors for the Fifth International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing, which will be held in Seattle on October 12-15, 2003. UbiComp 2003 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. With the explosion of popular interest in topics such as handheld computers, mobile telephony and radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, this conference plays an important role in framing and extending the discussion about how technology will affect the way we work, play and live in the future. The conference program includes invited speakers, papers, panels, workshops, videos, demonstrations, and a doctoral consortium.
If your company supplies products or services that take advantage of ubiquitous computing technology, then this conference will be of interest to you. Sponsoring this conference stakes your claim as a leader in this field and provides a unique opportunity to access and recruit experts in the field. Conference attendees include leading researchers and developers in this exploding field. UbiComp 2002 attracted over 400 attendees from 24 countries, representing the computer industry, telecommunications, research institutions, and major users of technology including government and education. The Conference Proceedings, published by Springer Verlag, are distributed worldwide. The conference also receives press coverage.
The conference recognizes two levels of contribution – Corporate Benefactors and Corporate Sponsors. We urge you to consider becoming a Corporate Benefactor of UbiComp 2003, with a contribution of US$10,000. Benefactors are very important to the conference, and the conference committee ensures that their contribution is well recognized (the benefits are listed below). If you are unable to support us at the Benefactor level, we hope you will at least be able to support the conference as a Corporate Sponsor with a contribution of US$5,000. Your contribution will help ensure that we can maintain the highest quality throughout all aspects of what promises to be a truly great conference.
|We hope you will be part of UbiComp 2003!
