                      Call for Participation

                           Ubicomp 2005
     The 7th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing

                     Semptember 11 - 14, 2005
                           Tokyo, JAPAN


UbiComp 2005, the Seventh International Conference on Ubiquitous
Computing, will be held September 11-14, 2005 in Tokyo, Japan. The
annual conference provides the premier forum in which to present
research results in all areas relating to the design, implementation,
application and evaluation of ubiquitous computing technologies,
bringing together leading researchers from a variety of disciplines and
geographical areas who are exploring the frontiers of computing as it
moves beyond the desktop and becomes increasingly interwoven into the
fabrics of our lives. Last year, over 400 people attended the UbiComp
2004 conference, representing 4 continents, 24 countries and a wide
variety of disciplines and perspectives.

Technical Program.

The program consists of a single track with 22 papers. The authors
present state-of-the-art results on various topics, such as
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. The
conference program can be found at

Posters and Demonstrations.

The program also includes a number of posters and technical
demonstrations of experimental systems. The posters present
late-breaking, preliminary, or exploratory work, smaller projects or
results not suitable for a full paper, and any other research that
authors wish to present in an interactive, open forum. The
demonstrations provide hands-on experience with the latest innovations
and ubiquitous computing technologies, such as showing off the newest
sensor technology, demonstrating cool new interaction techniques, or
presenting novel miniature displays. They also visualize how ubiquitous
computing can make a difference in the real world: be it in plants or in
emergency rooms, at school or in the office.


Videos are a great way to present innovations in ubiquitous computing,
especially for those systems that would be particularly difficult to
deploy at the conference for a live demonstration. The video screening
is planned prior to the conference banquet on 13 Sept. to give
opportunity to authors to show their works in a public setting to all
Ubicomp attendees. The videos will also be playing continuously in a
dedicated space during the duration of the conference.


Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss and explore emerging areas
of ubiquitous computing research with a group of like-minded researchers
and practitioners. Workshops will be held on Sunday 11 September, the
day before the main conference. The following workshops take place:

W1.  Ubiquitous Computing in Next Generation Conference Rooms:
     Interweaving Rich Media, Mobile Devices and Smart Environments
W2.  Pervasive Image Capture and Sharing: New Social Practices and
     Implications for Technology
W3.  Smart Object Systems
W4.  Privacy in Context
W5.  Ubiquitous Computing, Entertainment, and Games
W6.  The Spaces in-between: Seamful vs. Seamless Interactions
W7.  Situating Ubiquitous Computing in Everyday Life: Bridging the
     Social and Technical Divide
W8.  UbiPhysics: Designing for Physically Integrated Interaction
W9.  Smart Environments and Their Applications to Cultural Heritage
W10. Monitoring, Measuring, and Motivating Exercise: Ubiquitous
     Computing to Support Physical Fitness
W11. Metapolis and Urban Life
W12. ubiPCMM: Personalized Context Modeling and Management for Ubicomp
W13. Ubiquitous Wireless Communications
