VIRTUAL PARTICIPATION
CALL FOR PAPERS

UbiComp is a premier interdisciplinary venue in which leading international researchers, designers, developers, and practitioners in the field present and discuss novel results in all aspects of ubiquitous and pervasive computing. This includes the design, development, and deployment of ubiquitous and pervasive computing technologies and the understanding of human experiences and social impacts that these technologies facilitate.

UbiComp 2021 will be held from 21th to 26th September, and as in past years will be co-located with ISWC 2021 (with a single registration fee).

Publication Model

UbiComp will invite for presentation papers published by the Proceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT). IMWUT has 1 volume per year with 4 issues per volume, published in March (Issue 1), June (Issue 2), September (Issue 3), and December 1 (Issue 4).

The UbiComp 2021 main technical tracks will consist of papers in IMWUT 2020 Issue 4 and IMWUT 2021 Issues 1-3. The conference will retain its workshop, poster, and demo tracks, which will have their own publication outlet.

Detailed information about IMWUT — including submission instructions and a description of its reviewing process — is available at: http://imwut.acm.org.

Submission Deadlines And Associated Publication Issues

IMWUT has 4 deadlines per year: February 15, May 15, August 15, and November 15. We expect a quick publication schedule. For instance, papers submitted on February 15 may be published as soon as in the June issue, if the review process indicates only minor revisions are required.

AUGUST 15, 2020

  • Papers with minor revisions will appear in IMWUT 2020 Issue 4 (December 1, 2020).

  • Papers with major revisions which are subsequently accepted may appear in IMWUT 2021 Issue 1 or IMWUT 2021 Issue 2 depending on the resubmission deadline chosen by the author.

Publication Date

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the UbiComp / ISWC 2021 conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
