                              CALL FOR PAPERS

    System Support for Ubiquitous Computing Workshop (UbiSys 2009)
at the 11th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2009)

                             Orlando, Florida
                      September 30-October 3, 2009


The goal of this workshop is to promote cooperation between ubicomp
systems researchers and to address the challenges related to the wider
deployment and interoperability of ubicomp systems. The workshop aims
at bringing together researchers in this field to discuss the 
and to foster discussions and inspire novel techniques for unifying the
underlying system platforms for ubicomp. Key issues of discussions will
include developing and revising common sets of abstractions of ubicomp
environments for supporting ubiquitous applications and services,
wide-deployment strategies, and interoperability between different 
Currently, the evaluation of ubicomp systems is not well established. For
effective deployment of ubicomp systems, we must propose techniques and 
for evaluation that is best suited to our kind of research.


The workshop focuses on presenting state of the art and emerging
research, as well as experience reports, in the following topics:

* Abstractions and models toward interoperability and portability.
* Use of new and emerging middleware and software engineering approaches.
* Experiences of deployed ubicomp systems infrastructure.
* Techniques and benchmarks for the effective evaluation of ubicomp systems

Submission Guidelines:

This workshop will consist of a mix of paper presentations, discussions 
and a panel
discussion. Papers must cover one of the topics listed above. We will 
research papers describing current and on-going research, experience 
reports and
position papers related to the workshop's topics.

Submissions are expected to be 4 - 6 pages long. All papers should be in 
Ubicomp 2009 workshop templates format (available at All papers will be 
reviewed and selected based on their originality, merit, and relevance 
to the
workshop. All accepted papers must be presented during the workshop.  
will publish all workshop papers in a proceedings supplement. The
