Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to submit a paper to the 4th International 
Workshop on Trustworthy Ubiquitous Computing (TwUC2010 which is going 
to take place in Paris, France, on Nov 8-10, 2009 in 
conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Information 
Integration and Web-based Applications & Services (iiWAS2010).

Could you please help us distribute the attached Call for Papers to 
friends and colleagues who might be interested. 

Best regards,

Thomas Grill

Fourth International Workshop on Trustworthy Ubiquitous Computing (TwUC

November 8-10, 2010, Paris, France

The Fourth International Workshop on the vision of a trustworthy
ubiquitous computing will be held on November 8-10, 2010, in Paris,
France. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 12th
international conference on Advances in Mobile Multimedia (iiWAS2010)
and the 8thInternational Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing &
Multimedia (MoMM2010). TwUC covers aspects of trust in ubiquitous
computing environments. The aspects of context, privacy, reliability,
usability and user experience related to ubiquitous computing
environments represent the main topics of the workshop.

Marc Weiser presented his vision of disappearing and ubiquitous
computing more than 15 years ago. The big picture of the computer
introduced into our environment was a big innovation and the starting
point for various areas of research. In order to totally adopt the idea
of ubiquitous computing several houses were build, equipped with
technology and used as laboratory in order to find and test appliances
that are useful and could be made available in our everyday life.
Within the last years industry picked up the idea of integrating
ubiquitous computing and already available products like remote
controls for your house were developed and brought to the marked.

In spite of many applications and projects in the area of ubiquitous
and pervasive computing the success is still far away. One of the main
reasons is the lack of acceptance of and confidence in this technology.
Although researchers and industry are working in all of these areas a
forum to elaborate security, reliability and privacy issues, that
resolve in trustworthy interfaces and computing environments for people
interacting within these ubiquitous environments is important. The user
experience factor of trust thus becomes a crucial issue for the success
of a UbiComp application.

The goal of the TwUC 2010 workshop is to provide an international forum
for scientists, engineers and industry to address recent research
results and to present and discuss their ideas, theories, technologies,
systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences on all
theoretical and practical issues.

Topics of Interest The conference program will include peer reviewed
full papers around but not limited to the following topics:

- Usability and HCI in Ubiquitous Computing Environments
	- Methods and concepts to enhance and ensure usability in 
	  UbiComp environments User experience in ubiquitous environ-
