Final Call for Papers for the 7th IEEE International Symposium on UbiSafe
Computing (UbiSafe 2015)
Helsinki, Finland, 20-22 August, 2015

In Conjunction with IEEE TrustCom 2015
The 14th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy
in Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2015)
Helsinki, Finland, 20-22 August, 2015

Central South University, China
Aalto University, Finland

Computers are now available anytime, anywhere, by different means, and
distributed unobtrusively
throughout everyday environments in which physical objects/artifacts
embedded with invisible
computers are sensible and networked locally and globally. Such "any"
computers open tremendous
opportunities to provide numerous novel services/applications in both real
world and cyber spaces,
and exist ubiquitously in our daily life, working, learning, traveling,
entertainment, medicine,
etc. Although it is yet unclear what exactly the real-cyber integrated
worlds would be, there is
no doubt that they must be safe.

The 7th IEEE International Symposium on Ubisafe Computing (UbiSafe 2015)
will be held in conjunction
with "The 14th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy
in Computing and
Communications (TrustCom 2015)". It follows the success of UbiSafe 2014 in
Beijing, China. It aims at
bringing together researchers and practitioners in the world working on
theories and technologies for
ubiquitous artifacts to function safely for different purposes; for
ubiquitous systems to work safely
in various situations; and for ubiquitous environments to behave safely
with all people.

Scope and Interests
UbiSafe 2015 is an international symposium for presenting and discussing
emerging ideas and trends
in aspects of UbiSafe computing, but are not limited to:

(1) Fundamentals
UbiSafe concepts, definitions, basic elements, models, frameworks and
methodologies, human-centric
paradigms, multi-disciplinary/inter-disciplinary/trans-disciplinary
approaches, semantics, ontologies,
UbiSafe requirements and formal specifications and validations, information
assurance, etc.

(2) Technologies
Security and privacy protection, reliability and fault tolerance, risk
analysis, uncertainty and exception
handling, socially intelligent agents, intuitive/natural user interface,
interaction design,
context-awareness, intelligent computing, service-oriented computing,
hardware, software, middleware, etc.

(3) Systems
Embedded systems, wearable systems, augmented systems, context-based
systems, communication systems,
safety-critical systems, survivable systems, persistent systems,
autonomous/autonomic systems, proactive
systems, network infrastructure, sensor networks, etc.

(4) Applications
Smart objects, smart environments, information appliance and artifacts,
everyday gadgets, robots, safety care,
healthcare, medical care and services, working, learning, traveling,
entertainment, case studies, etc.

(5) Measures and Assessments
UbiSafe attributes and measures for safety, trust, faith, amenity,
easiness, comfort, satisfaction and worry,
UbiSafe levels and relations, UbiSafe quality, assessment criteria and
authority, subjective and objective
assessment standards, evaluation methodologies, testing, measuring and
monitoring tools, etc.

(6) Human Factors and Social Issues
Human and social aspects of UbiSafe, UbiSafe sources and factors, social
rules, regulations and laws, human
factors, human behavior analysis, modeling of human feelings, traditional
and cultural issues, ethical issues, etc.

Submission and Publication Information
All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings
of the conference and submitted to
the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Papers should be written in English
conforming to the IEEE conference proceedings
format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Papers should be submitted through the
paper submission system at the symposium
website. Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with the over length
charge). Distinguished papers, after
further revisions, will be considered for possible publication in SCI & EI
indexed special issues of prestigious
international journals. The program committee will select and award one
"Best Paper Award" for this symposium.
By submitting a paper to the conference, authors assure that if the paper
is accepted, at least one author will
attend the conference and present the paper.

Important Dates
(1)  Submission Deadline:             Extended to 1 May, 2015 (Firm
(2)  Authors Notification:            31 May, 2015
(3)  Final Manuscript Due:            1 July, 2015
(4)  Registration Due:                1 July, 2015
