                   Announcement and Call for Papers
                             UBICOMP 2014

            The 2014 ACM International Joint Conference on
                  Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing

            September 13-17, 2014, Seattle (Washington, US)

The 2014 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous 
Computing (UbiComp 2014) invites submissions of papers concerning new 
research contributions in ubiquitous and pervasive computing. 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. 
Following the successful merger in 2013 of the two most renowned 
conferences in the field, i.e., Pervasive and (the former) UbiComp, 
UbiComp 2014 will be held from September 13 to 17 in Seattle, Washington, 
USA, and as in past years will be collocated with ISWC 2014 (with a single 
registration fee).

UbiComp 2014's papers and notes track welcomes high quality submissions 
that describe original and unpublished research contributions advancing 
the frontier of pervasive and ubiquitous computing. Relevant research 
topics include, but are not limited to:

- Systems & infrastructures: descriptions of the design, architecture, 
deployment, and evaluation of systems and infrastructures that support 
ubiquitous computing
- Devices & techniques: descriptions of the design, architecture, usage, 
and evaluation of devices and techniques that create valuable new 
capabilities for ubiquitous computing
- Applications & experiences: descriptions of the design and/or empirical 
study of applications that leverage Ubicomp devices and systems
- Methodologies & tools: new methods and tools applied to studying or 
building Ubicomp systems and applications
- Theories & models: critical analysis or organizing theory with clear 
relevance to the design or study of Ubicomp systems

A submission (full paper or note) should clearly compare and contrast how 
the work relates to previous research and knowledge, what aspects of the 
work are new, and the major contributions it makes. Authors should write 
their paper for an interdisciplinary, international audience. All 
submissions should not have been previously published nor be under 
concurrent submission for publication for an archival track of any other 
conference, journal, workshop or other publication that is part of a 
formal repository (such as the ACM digital library).

***NEW for 2014*** To allow for more complete and fully formatted 
reference lists, bibliographic references do NOT count toward the page 
limit of 10 pages for full papers and 4 pages for notes. However, 
references are limited to 2 total additional pages for full papers and 1 
additional page for notes and must still be formatted in the ACM 
double-column format. Therefore, the maximum total pages for full papers 
will be 12 pages and 5 pages for notes (with only references allowed on 
the final pages).

*** NEW for 2014 *** UbiComp 2014 will use a relaxed anonymization policy. 
Author names/affiliations must not appear in the title area of a 
paper-in-submission, but further anonymization is at the authors' 

UbiComp 2014 will continue to include a "revise & resubmit" phase as a 
part of its submission and review process. While most papers will be 
accepted or rejected at the program committee meeting, a select number of 
papers will receive the opportunity to resubmit a substantially revised 
version of their submission. A detailed meta-review will outline necessary 
changes, which may include the need for further experiments and/or 
significant manuscript re-organization. This process allows flawed papers 
with significant potential a second chance at acceptance. However, note 
that an invitation to revise and resubmit does not guarantee acceptance.

Important Dates for UbiComp 2014 Papers and Notes track:

above) - March 19, 2014, 17:00 PDT
