                  Announcement and Call for Papers
                               UIC 2015

                The 12th IEEE International Conference on
                  Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing

                   August 10-14, 2015, Beijing, China

Ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and information are paving the way
towards a smart world in which computational intelligence is distributed
throughout the physical environment to provide reliable and relevant
services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence will change the computing
landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and systems to
be developed and the realm of computing possibilities will be significantly
extended. By enhancing everyday objects with intelligence, many tasks and
processes could be simplified, the physical spaces where people interact
like the workplaces and homes, could become more efficient, safer and more
enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, uses these many
"smart things or u-things" to create smart environments, services and

Research on ubiquitous intelligence is an emerging research field covering
many disciplines. A series of grand challenges exist to move from the
current level of computing services to the smart world of adaptive and
intelligent services. Started in 2005, the series of Ubiquitous
Intelligence and Computing (UIC) conferences has been held in Taipei,
Nagasaki, Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong, Oslo, Brisbane, Xi'an, Banff,
Fukuoka, Vietri sul Mare (Italy) and Ayodya Resort (Bali, Indonesia). It
offers a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in
developing intelligent/smart objects, environments and systems.

The 12th IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and
Computing (UIC 2015) will be held during August 10-14, 2015, in Beijing
China. It will include a highly selective program of technical papers,
accompanied by workshops, demos, panel discussions and keynote speeches. We
welcome high quality papers that describe original and unpublished research
advancing the state of the art in ubiquitous intelligence and computing.

Main conference papers are limited to 8 pages, following the IEEE CS
format, and are to be submitted as PDF via the UIC 2015 submission site (

Accepted conference papers will be published by IEEE CPS (IEEE-DL and EI
indexed). At least one author of each accepted paper is required to
register and present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper will
not be included in the proceedings. Best Paper Awards will be presented to
high quality papers. Selected papers, after further extensions and
revisions, will be recommended to special issues.

Important Dates:
- Paper Submission Deadline:  April 10, 2015
- Authors Notification:       May 20, 2015
- Camera-ready:               June 15, 2015
- Poster and Demo Deadline: June 5, 2015
- Main conference:            August 10-14, 2015

The UIC 2015 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops
associated with the conference, addressing research areas related to the
conference. Accepted workshop papers will be included in the proceedings
published by IEEE CS Press. For submission details/deadlines, please refer

The UIC 2015 Smart World Creative Video Contest welcomes the contribution
of videos illustrating inspiring visions of future smart worlds, our smart
lives, and smart human-machine applications that are grounded in today's
technical reality, that make full use of your imagination and creation to
demonstrate your creative ideas, designs, applications, and systems. For
submission details/deadlines, please refer to

The UIC 2015 Poster and Demo session provides an excellent opportunity for
researchers to showcase and present their work in a highly interactive
manner. We also encourage researchers to submit early results and findings
from work-in-progress research, as this enables researchers to exchange
ideas and solicit early feedback from the research community. For
submission details/deadlines, please refer to
