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

Call for Papers 
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.

Important Dates
(1)  Submission Deadline:              10 June, 2014
(2)  Authors Notification:             10 July, 2014
(3)  Final Manuscript Due:             30 July, 2014 
(4)  Registration Due:                 30 July, 2014
(5)  Conference Dates:                 24-26 September, 2014
