CALL FOR PAPERS

ICUFN 2021

The 12th International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks
August 17 (Tue.) ~ 20 (Fri.) 2021, Virtual Conference & Jeju Island, Korea
http://www.icufn.org

GENERAL INFORMATION:

During the last decade, we have witnessed fast developments of various networking technologies,
and many forms of networking and systems are becoming core parts of our daily lives.
With the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast-growing interest in ubiquitous and future networks.
In the days to come, we expect that the ubiquitous communication and networking technologies will become ubiquitous along with the emergence of many future networking technologies.
The ubiquitous and future network will offer multiservice, multimedia services convergence, mobility, service ubiquity and context awareness, fixed mobile convergence, quality of service, variable connectivity, spontaneous networking, autonomic networking and other capabilities as the norm.
Building on the success of the last ten years, the twelfth International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN 2021) aims at addressing advances in research on ubiquitous and future networks, covering topics ranging from technology issues to emerging applications and test-bed developments.
ICUFN 2021 solicits original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of ubiquitous and future networking and system.
Submitted articles must not be concurrently considered elsewhere for publication.
We also encourage authors to submit short papers on the early stages of research or development in progress, which present important new challenges.
Position papers on new idea and industry papers are also welcome. The conference is organized by KICS with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Communications Society and IEICE Communications Society.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICUFN 2021 Conference Proceedings with an assigned ISBN number and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases such as EI Compendex, ScienceDirect, Scopus, Web of Knowledge, Thomson ISI, and IET Inspect.
Also extended versions of selected papers will be recommended to be published in the various international journals.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded
on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is http://edas.info/N28176.
There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short
paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to
accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be
formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt
size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number
of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Please make sure
that both full paper and short papers must be at minimum 3 pages in length.
Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the
conference web site (http://www.icufn.org).
