The submission deadline for the workshop on "Software Engineering Issues for
Ubiquitous Computing" is just a few days away.


                   CALL FOR PAPERS

                International Workshop on
"Software Engineering Challenges for Ubiquitous Computing"

                     June 1-2 2006
                    Lancaster, UK

Submission deadline: April 20 2006

Workshop goals
This workshop is intended to initiate a discussion of software
engineering challenges for ubiquitous computing. While recent research
in ubiquitous computing has produced useful results in the form of
novel devices, infrastructures and applications, there has been a lack
of research investigating the fundamental software engineering
challenges for ubiquitous computing.  As a result we are lacking
answers to questions such as:

- How do we ensure that ubiquitous computing systems
fulfill their required and intended purpose?
- How do we ensure that we can trust these systems to
perform as intended?
- How do we produce ubiquitous computing systems efficiently
and economically?

As ubiquitous computing technology is increasingly applied for solving
critical real-world problems, effective and efficient engineering
techniques will become increasingly vital.

This workshop is aimed at researchers from all areas interested in
advancing the state-of-the art in software engineering and ubiquitous
computing. The concrete goals of this workshop are:

1. To identify shortcoming of current software engineering approaches
   when applied to ubiquitous computing.
2. To identify requirements for future engineering techniques.
3. To discuss novel software engineering methods, processes and
   tools that specifically address the challenges of producing ubiquitous
4. To determine promising areas for future research in software engineering
   and ubiquitous computing.

Topics of interest
The topics of this workshop include, but not restricted to, the following:

- methods, tools and notations that address both software engineering
and ubiquitous computing concerns
- system models and specifications
- development processes
- safety and reliability aspects
- evaluation, validation
- verification and testing of ubiquitous computing systems
- hardware/software integration.

Interested individuals should submit a 2-page position paper. Papers
may address previous work carried out by the author or discuss ideas
related to the four outlined workshop goals.
Submissions should be sent by email to Gerd Kortuem at

The submission deadline is 20 April 2006.
