1st Workshop on Ubiquitous Computing for Symbio-Information Processing (UCSIP)

held in conjunction with JCSSE 2011
May 12th, 2011
Nakhon Pathom, Thailand


     Recent advances in mobile devices and embedded computer technologies have cut our way towards the upsurge of ubiquitous computing. These technologies are definitely leading us to provide computing and communication services anytime, anywhere transparently and invisibly to any users.

     In our circumstances, we have been forced to live together among human beings, nature and science & technology for continuous co-prosperity. In the era of information explosion, in order to realize symbio information society, implementation of information technologies, which support intellectual activities of human beings effectively, is still indispensable.

     In this workshop, we focus on issues of embedded hardware/software architecture, wireless network architecture, mobile technologies, devices or technologies for user interface, cognitive environments, applications and services with such technologies and other related topics on ubiquitous computing for symbio-information processing. This workshop welcomes paper submissions about state-of-the-art research papers, technical reports, dissertation etc. for these interdisciplinary areas.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer Hardware

  • Embedded Hardware

  • Parallel Computing

  • Information Systems

  • Computer Communications and Networks

  • Computer Networks with Ad Hoc Networks and Optical

  • Web Semantics

  • Image and Vision Computing

  • Computer Imaging, Graphics & Vision Medical Image Analysis

  • Artificial Intelligence

  • Database Management & Info Retrieval

  • Knowledge-Based Systems

  • Decision Support Systems

  • Computers in Biology and Medicine

  • Digital Signal Processing

  • Biometric Technology

  • Robotics and Autonomous Systems

  • Simulation Modeling Practice and Theory

  • User Interface, HCI & Ergonomics

  • General Computer Science

  • Miscellaneous

     The workshop also aims at providing a forum for researchers and engineers from academia and industry, as well as work-in-progress papers or case studies related to the issues.


     People who would like to participate in this event are invited to submit a paper (or an extended abstract) to the workshop general chair via email ucsip_at_cc.tuat.ac.jp (*1). Submitted papers should follow the IEEE conference format and must not exceed 6 pages in length. Papers must be submitted in PDF format. Papers that are excessively long may be rejected without review. For more information about workshop paper submission, please visit JCSSE workshop page.

*1: please replace "_at_" to "@"

     Short papers about 2-3 pages for "work-in-progress" research are also welcome. In that case, please indicate that in your submitting mail.

     All accepted papers will be published and included in the proceedings of JCSSE'11.
