Important Dates

Submission: June 25, 2009 (23:59 PST)

Author notification: June 20, 2009

Final manuscript: August 1, 2009

Videos are an important means of visualizing the results of  
research and development efforts. In Ubicomp 2009, we welcome the  
contribution of videos which demonstrate the practical application  
of research results and the functionality of ubiquitous computing  
systems, visualize the outcome of research and development  
projects, or describe inspiring visions of future systems that are  
grounded in today′s reality.

We encourage the submission of videos either as new material or as  
supplemental to paper submissions (e.g. in order to illustrate  
particular aspects of a system). In order to be eligible, videos  
should not have been previously presented in any other formal video  
program. In addition, a video (with audio soundtrack) must be self- 
explanatory without requiring the viewer to read the abstract.  
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    *   New technologies, infrastructures and architectures of  
        ubiquitous computing systems

    *   Ubiquitous computing technologies, systems, devices and  

    *   Practical application and evaluation of design frameworks and  
        guidelines for the development and deployment of ubiquitous  
        computing systems

    *   Tools, techniques and methodologies that can be used for the  
        development and evaluation of ubiquitous computing systems and  

    *   User studies of life within ubiquitous computing environments  
        and adoption of ubiquitous computing paradigm

    *   Novel interfaces, dialog systems and types of interaction  
        between people and ubiquitous computing environments

    *   Special purpose ubiquitous computing systems such as social  
        systems, awareness systems, e-health systems, smart classrooms etc

    *   Controversial and/or thought-provoking scenarios showing the  
        reciprocal relationship between social issues like privacy,  
        security, trust, equality etc. and deployed ubiquitous computing  

Accepted video formats are: MPEG1 and MPEG2, AVI file with MPEG4  
(DivX codecs) and Apple QuickTime with high resolution. MPEG2  
format is strongly encouraged. Video submissions should be 4 to 8  
minutes long and at least 320x240 in size. Video file size may not  
exceed 150 MB. Videos will be judged primarily on the clarity of  
their presentation, and the structure and quality of their content,  
with fancy effects being a welcome but secondary consideration.

In addition to submitting a video file, authors have to submit a  
short paper with a maximum of 4 pages. The papers should be  
formatted according to this required template and submitted  
together with the video in PDF format.

If the video is accepted, a high quality format, suitable for DVD  
production, will be required for the final version. The authors  
will have to grant Ubicomp 2009 the right to redistribute it  
freely, thus it must not contain any material subject to copyright.  
For accepted contributions, the short video paper will be published  
in the adjunct proceedings of Ubicomp 2009, which will be available  
in printed form at the conference, as well as electronically on the  
conference web site; they will not be incorporated into the main  
Ubicomp 2009 Conference Proceedings.

If authors have any queries regarding potential submissions,  
including copyright, please contact the Ubicomp 2009 video co- 
chairs ([log in to unmask]). Videos and video abstracts should  
both be uploaded through the Ubicomp 2009 Videos submission page
