Call for Workshop Proposals


 The 9th IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC-2012)

                            September 04-07, 2012



Ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and information are paving the way towards a smart world (SW) in which computational intelligence is distributed throughout the physical environment to provide trustworthy and relevant services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence (UI) will change the computing landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and systems to be developed; the realm of computing possibilities will be significantly extended. By enhancing everyday objects with intelligence, many tasks and processes could be simplified, the physical spaces where people are associated like the workplaces and homes, could become more efficient, safer and more enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, composes these many smart things/u-things to create the environments that underpin the smart world.

The UIC-2012 workshops provide vibrant opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experience, original research results and practical

development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues.

The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have responsibility of the call for papers, forming program committee, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program.  The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings and etc.

The proceedings of the UIC-2012 workshops will be published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services (Indexed by EI).

Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to UIC-2012 Workshop Chair.

    -Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation)

    -Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1 page)

    -Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization

    -Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example, how to advertise and special issues of journals), and the expected number of participants

    -A tentative list of program committee members

    -The (tentative) website/URL of your workshop

Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates. The paper submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference.  But a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, the submitted paper must be 6 pages, and each paper should receive 3 peer reviews.

Planned Schedule

Workshop Proposal Due: Ongoing as received

Suggested Papers Submission Deadline: May 15, 2012 (HARD DEADLINE)

Authors Notification: June 15, 2012

Final Manuscript Deadline: June 28, 2012

We look forward to your stimulating proposals and contributions to UIC-2012 workshops. A workshop proposal should be submitted to the workshops chairs:
