UbiComp 2008
Tenth International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing 
COEX, Seoul, South Korea
September 21 - 24, 2008

1.) Papers and Workshops -> deadline April 4 !!!

2.) New Calls for Posters, Demonstrations, Videos, Panels, Doctoral 
Colloquium and Student Volunteers -> deadline June 27

The Tenth International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 
2008) welcomes original, high-quality research contributions that 
advance the state of the art in the design, development, deployment, 
evaluation and understanding of ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) systems. 
Ubicomp is an interdisciplinary field of study that includes pervasive, 
wireless, embedded, wearable and/or mobile technologies that bridge the 
gaps between the digital and physical worlds, useful applications that 
incorporate these technologies, infrastructures that effectively support 
them, human activities and experiences these technologies facilitate, 
and conceptual overviews that help us understand - or challenge our 
understanding of - the impact of these technologies. The UbiComp 
conference is a premier international venue in which novel results in 
these areas are presented and discussed among leading researchers, 
designers, developers and other practitioners in this field.

We previously announced calls for participation in the categories of 
Full Papers and Notes ( 
and Workshop Proposals 
(, both of which 
have deadlines this coming Friday, April 4.

This announcement expands the call for participation to include the 
categories of Posters, Demonstrations, Videos, Panels, Doctoral 
Colloquium and Student Volunteers, all of which have submission 
deadlines of Friday, June 27.

Brief summaries of these categories are included below; more 
comprehensive descriptions of each of the categories - including contact 
information for the chairs of each category - can be found via the 
associated links.

Posters (

The Posters category provides researchers with an opportunity to present 
their bleeding-edge work in an interactive fashion in front of an expert 
audience, without impacting the possibility of publishing as a full 
paper at a later date. Accepted Posters will be presented in three 
forms: as a poster at the conference poster reception, at the "1-minute 
madness" session preceding the reception, and as an extended abstract 
distributed to the attendees. We encourage the submission of preliminary 
or exploratory work, smaller projects or results not suitable for a full 
paper, and any other research that would excite discussion and benefit 
from this open forum.

Demonstrations (

The Demonstrations Program offers an excellent way to showcase tangible 
results of ubiquitous computing research and development to hundreds of 
attendees from academia and industry. A successful demo communicates 
ideas and concepts in a powerful way that a regular presentation cannot. 
We invite you to contribute your vision of the ubicomp experience to the 
Demonstrations Program at the UbiComp 2008 conference. We particularly 
encourage demonstrations that include participation by conference 
attendees and provoke discussion about issues within the field of 
ubiquitous computing.

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).

Panels (

We seek proposals for panels for Ubicomp 2008 that take a retrospective 
look at research and development in ubiquitous computing over the past 
15 years since Mark Weiser's seminal paper on ubiquitous computing, and 
that outline possible futures for our field of research and development. 
We invite panels that address technological, design, social, and 
cultural issues related to the realization of ubiquitous computing into 
our surroundings, now and in the future. The best panels involve debate. 
We actively encourage panel proposals that deal with controversial issues.

Doctoral Colloquium (

We invite PhD students and candidates to present, discuss and defend 
their work-in-progress or preliminary results in an international and 
renowned audience of researchers and developers at UbiComp 2008 
conference is Korea. The scope of the doctoral colloquium is equivalent 
to the conference and hence includes all major aspects of ubiquitous 
computing. We invite students that are beyond the idea-phase their PhD 
studies and who have not yet finished their thesis (at least 6 more 
months to go), so that they can sill incorporate the advice and 
suggestions discussed in the colloquium.

Student Volunteers (

Student volunteers provide the backbone of a successful conference. 
Accepted volunteers are expected to work in multiple functions during 
the conference, but will also be given great opportunities to attend the 
program and socialize. All student volunteers will receive a free 
registration to the conference (including meals & special events).

We hope you will join us at UbiComp 2008 by participating in one or more 
of these categories!
