Call For Papers
Special Track on "Smartphone Applications for Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing"
The focus of this track is on smartphone applications and services, and in particular on novel ideas and applications for ubiquitous and pervasive computing (UPC). This comprises overviews of current and emerging technologies, smartphone platforms and middleware, as well as multi‐technology connectivity via cellular networks or WiFi, security, performance and reliability issues. Moreover, the latest generation of smartphone allows novel applications and services because of their capabilities to monitor environmental data, like location, noise, light, acceleration, images and videos, etc. The aggregation of such data in communities and social networks allows for innovative applications for UPC, but addresses several technical challenges. Therefore, We would like to bring together contributions on key issues of smartphone applications, as well as challenges and future trends for the usage of smartphones for UPC.
Submit a full paper of not more than eight pages (proceedings manuscripts: two columns, single-spaced), including figures and references, using 10 point font size, and number each page. You can find instructions for authors how to format the manuscript at the
following web page: http://www.computer.org/portal/site/cscps/.
Prepare your paper in PDF file (Adobe format), and submit it electronically to the online submission system.
