The organizers of The 10th International Conference on Ubiquitous 
Computing are delighted to invite you to join us for stimulating 
presentations, demonstrations and discussions on the cutting edges of 
ubiquitous computing. UbiComp 2008 will be held in Seoul, South Korea, 
from 21-24 September 2008.

Ubicomp is an interdisciplinary field of study that includes pervasive, 
wireless, embedded, wearable and/or mobile technologies that bridge the 
gaps between the digital and physical worlds, useful applications that 
incorporate these technologies, infrastructures that effectively support 
them, human activities and experiences these technologies facilitate, 
and conceptual overviews that help us understand - or challenge our 
understanding of - the impact of these technologies. The annual UbiComp 
conference is one of the premier international venues in which novel 
results in these areas are presented and discussed among leading 
researchers, designers, developers and other practitioners in this field.

The main technical program this year includes full papers and notes on 
an important and diverse range of topics, including activity sensing, 
location sensing, portable and wearable devices, ubicomp methods and 
tools, security and privacy, design and ethnography, context-based 
systems, location-aware applications, and augmenting everyday life. An 
exciting collection of demonstrations, posters, videos and workshops 
will also be included in the overall program.

Dr. Shim Yoon, Vice President of Samsung SDS and Head of the Korean 
"U-City" project, will lead off the conference with a keynote 
presentation on "Realizing the Ubiquitous City", in which she will 
highlight the urban paradigm shift, some of u-city practices in Korea, 
and the ubiquitous services offered by the city.

Registration for the conference is now open. The early advance 
registration deadline is *Friday, August 22*, and we encourage all 
prospective attendees to register soon in order to take advantage of the 
discounted rates.

More details about our technical program, and links to our online 
registration page, can be found on the conference web site:

We look forward to discovering and creating the future of ubiquitous 
computing with you at UbiComp 2008!
