and Applications in Ubiquitous Computing
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2014)
July 21 – July 25, 2014
The Savoia Hotel Regency
Extended Submission Deadline: March 31, 2014
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The advances in Location-based Services and Applications in Ubiquitous Computing of mobile devices have enabled the realization of intelligent environments for people and machines to communicate with each other, interact with information processing devices, and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through various types of networks and systems everywhere, anytime. A key enabler of these ubiquitous connectivity environments is the advancement of location-aware technology in various communication sectors, ranging from communication middleware and operating systems to networking protocols and applications. The International Workshop on Location-based Services and Applications in Ubiquitous Computing (LSAUC 2014) will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds to interact and exchange experiences about the design and implementation of mobile and ubiquitous systems.
The LSAUC Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
Location Mechanisms and Services
Location and Discovery of Things on the Internet
Location-aware and Context-aware Networking and Computing
Location-based Services and Geographic Information Systems
Location-based Wireless Sensor Networks
Location-based Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks
Location-Aware Applications in Smartphones
Context-aware Computing for Location-based Applications
Communications Architectures and Protocols in Ubiquitous Computing
Positioning and Tracking Technologies for Ubiquitous Applications
Ubiquitous Computing for Location-Based Social Networks
Ubiquitous Social Wireless Networks
User Interfaces and Usability Issues for Ubiquitous Applications
Innovative Mobile Social Networking Applications
Social Location-based Context-aware Systems, Services, and Applications
Middleware platforms for location/context-dependent services
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to location-based services and applications in Ubiquitous Computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2014.cisedu.info/home/posters for the posters submission details) will also be accepted for submission. In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author(s) is responsible for correspondence must be indicated. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop submission site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lsauc2014 . Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2014 web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is to be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library and indexed by major indexing services accordingly (e.g., EI indexing).
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
