INTRODUCTION
=============

Ubiquitous Computing and Communications is a revolutionary paradigm that
aims to provide pervasive and reliable computing solutions and
communication services anytime and anywhere. This emerging technology is
built upon the rapid research and development advances in a wide range of
key areas including wireless and sensor networks, mobile and distributed
computing, embedded systems, agent technologies, autonomic communication,
and information security. Ubiquitous Computing and Communications has drawn
significant interests from both academia and industry and continues to
attract tremendous research efforts due to its promising new business
opportunity in information technology and engineering. The conference
offers an important international platform and brings together the
scientists, engineers, researchers, and students from academy and industry
all over the world to share their latest work, exchange experiences and
discuss the state-of-the-art challenges of ubiquitous computing and
communications. IUCC-2021 is soliciting original and previously unpublished
papers addressing research challenges and advances towards the design,
implementation and evaluation of ubiquitous computing and communications
technologies, systems and applications.

IUCC-2021 is planned to be hosted in London, UK. However, if the COVID-19
situation and associated travel restrictions remain, the conference will be
held virtually. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE
Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of
selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their
contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in
conjunction with the conference.
