                           CALL FOR PAPERS


                             UBICOMP 2004


          The 6th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing


                         7-10 September, 2004


                            Nottingham, UK





You are invited to contribute original and exciting ideas to UbiComp
2004, the Sixth International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing.
UbiComp is the premier venue for presenting research and development
achievements in the design, implementation, deployment and evaluation
of computing technology that migrates beyond our desktops and becomes
increasingly embedded in a wide variety of other objects. Submissions
to UbiComp 2004 must be original, unpublished work and may not be
simultaneously submitted to any other conference or journal. Papers
will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by
Springer-Verlag in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS). Each conference attendee will receive a printed copy of the
proceedings; additional copies can be purchased through
Springer-Verlag. The proceedings will also be made available through
digital libraries. Submissions must be in the LNCS format; full
instructions and templates are available at:


For Ubicomp 2004 we are soliciting high quality technical papers that
describe original, unpublished research on handheld, mobile or
ubiquitous computing. Potential areas of interest include:
technologies, methodologies and formalisms to support ubiquitous
computing and the development of ubiquitous computing applications
(e.g. novel devices, system software, software engineering techniques
and interaction methods); reports on experiences of designing,
developing, deploying and living with ubiquitous computing systems;
and, studies of the wider implications of ubiquitous computing. We are
particularly seeking papers appropriate to the interdisciplinary
community represented at the UbiComp 2004 conference. Submissions
should report concrete, transferable results that contribute to our
understanding of ubiquitous computing and help advance the


Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of
the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation.
All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the UbiComp 2004
program committee and by additional members of the ubiquitous
computing research community. Papers submitted to UbiComp 2004 must
not be under simultaneous review for any other conference, journal,
workshop or other publication. Technical papers should be no longer
than 18 pages, including an abstract of no more than 100 words, all
figures and references, and should be formatted according to the
Springer-Verlag LNCS format. In contrast to previous Ubicomp
conferences there are no separate categories for long and short
papers; all papers will be considered as full papers and should be an
appropriate length for their content. Accepted papers will be
published in the UbiComp 2004 Proceedings and authors are, of course,
required to attend the conference to present their work.


UbiComp 2004 submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate

reviewing: papers being submitted should not list the authors,
affiliations or addresses on the first page -- to preserve formatting,
it would be best to leave these sections blank. Author, affiliation
and address information should still be filled out on the electronic
form for submitting the paper, and final camera-ready copies should
have this information included. Authors are also encouraged to take
care throughout the entire document to minimize references that may
reveal the identity of the authors or institutions.


UbiComp 2004 requires electronic submission. Reviewers will be
instructed to maintain the confidentiality of all materials for
submitted papers throughout the entire reviewing process. Submissions
should contain no information that will be proprietary or confidential
at the time of publication.


Full submission details and information on other ways to participate
in Ubicomp 2004 are available at http://www.ubicomp.org .


Deadline for Submission: Papers due midnight GMT on March 12th 2004.
