   Our sincere apologies if you receive multiple copies of this
   The 7th International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and
   - Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces -
   UIC 2010 (
   Xi'an, China, October 26-29, 2010
   Technically Sponsored by IEEE CS TCSC
   Co-located with ATC 2010 (
   What's New:
   1. Due to many requests, the submission deadline of UIC 2010 is
   extended to May 15.
   2. Selected best papers of UIC 2010 will be published in the special
   issues of:
   * Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (Springer, SCI-E)
   * International Journal of Information Acquisition (World Scientific)
   * International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive Communications
   Systems (Inderscience)
   3. Six workshops have been accepted by UIC 2010. Workshop paper
   submission deadline is May 30.
   Ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and information are paving the
   way towards a smart world in which computational intelligence is
   distributed throughout the physical environment to provide reliable and
   relevant services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence will change
   the computing landscape because it will enable new breeds of
   applications and systems to be developed and the realm of computing
   possibilities will be significantly extended. By enhancing everyday
   objects with intelligence, many tasks and processes could be
   simplified, the physical spaces where people interact like the
   workplaces and homes, could become more efficient, safer and more
   enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, uses these
   many â»smart things or u-things§ to create smart environments,
   services and applications.
   A smart thing can be endowed with different levels of intelligence, and
   may be context-aware, active, interactive, reactive, proactive,
   assistive, adaptive, automated, sentient, perceptual, cognitive,
   autonomic and/or thinking. Research on ubiquitous intelligence is an
   emerging research field covering many disciplines. A series of grand
   challenges exist to move from the current level of computing services
   to the smart world of adaptive and intelligent services. Started in
   2005, the series of UIC conferences has been held in Taipei, Nagasaki,
   Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong, Oslo and Brisbane. UIC 2010 will
   include a highly selective program of technical papers, accompanied by
   workshops, panel discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a
   premier venue in the area of ubiquitous intelligence and computing, UIC
   2010 will offer a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and
   experiences in developing intelligent/smart objects, environments and

   The UIC 2010 Organizing Committee invites proposals for one-day
   workshops affiliated with the conference and addressing research areas
   related to the conference. The workshop proceedings will be published
   by IEEE CS Press. Submit workshop proposals to workshops chairs via
   email (robertchh at and mieso08 at by 31 January 2010.
   Besides workshops, UIC 2010 will also include a special track,
   demo/exhibitions and a panel. Please visit the conference website for
   Papers need to be prepared according to the LNCS format, and submitted
   in PDF format via the UIC 2010 submission site:
   Paper submission: May 15, 2010 (extended)
   Author notification: Jun. 30, 2010
   Camera-ready due: Jul. 30, 2010
   Accepted conference papers are planned to be published by Lecture Notes
   in Computer Science (LNCS, EI indexed). At least one author of each
   accepted paper is required to register and present their work at the
   conference, otherwise the paper will not be included in the
   proceedings. Distinguished Selected papers, after further extensions
   and revisions, will be published in special issues of prestigious
   journals including Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (Springer),
   International Journal of Information Acquisition (World Scientific),
   and International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive Communications
   Systems (Inderscience).
   As in the past, UIC 2010 will present a Best Paper Award. A best demo
   or exhibition will also be selected.
