The 8th FTRA International Conference on
Future Information Technology (FutureTech 2013)

September 4-6, 2013, Gwangju, Korea

Published by Springer-LNEE (EI and SCOPUS Index)

Hosted by KITCS,
Sponsored by FTRA,
Technically Sponsored by KIPS,

Future technology information technology would stand for all of
continuously evolving and converging information technologies, including
digital convergence, multimedia convergence, intelligent applications,
embedded systems, mobile and wireless communications, bio-inspired
computing, grid and cloud computing, semantic web, user experience and
HCI, security and trust computing and so on, for satisfying our
ever-changing needs.
In past twenty five years or so, Information Technology (IT) influenced
and changed every aspect of our lives and our cultures. Without various
IT-based applications, we would find it difficult to keep information
stored securely, to process information efficiently, and to communicate
information conveniently. In the future world, IT will play a very
important role in convergence of computing, communication, and all other
computational sciences and application and IT also will influence the
future world's various areas, including science, engineering, industry,
business, law, politics, culture, medicine, and so on.
Our conference is intended to foster the dissemination of
state-of-the-art research in all future IT areas, including their
models, services, and novel applications associated with their utilization.

FutureTech 2013 is the next edition of FutureTech 2012(Vancouver, Canada), FutureTech 2011(Loutraki, Greece), FutureTech 2010 (Busan, Korea,
May 2010) which was the next event in a series of highly successful the International Symposium on Ubiquitous Applications & Security Services
