Apologies if you received multiple copies of this IEEE UbiSafe 2014 CFPs
(Paper Submission Deadline: June 10, 2014)

Final Call for Papers --- Extended Firm Deadline (June 20, 2014)
The 6th IEEE International Symposium on UbiSafe Computing (UbiSafe 2014)
Beijing, China, 24-26 September, 2014

In Conjunction with
The 13th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in
Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2014)
Beijing, China, 24-26 September, 2014


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 6th IEEE International Symposium on Ubisafe Computing (UbiSafe 2014)
will be held in conjunction
with "The 13th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy
in Computing and
Communications (TrustCom 2014)". It follows the success of UbiSafe-13 in
Melbourne, Australia. 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

IEEE UbiSafe 2014 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.
