International Workshop on UBiquity & Information System


Ubiquitous computing is an emerging field of research that takes advantage of progress and advances from research fields such as telecommunication, wireless networks, service computing, smart products, self-identification technologies, and mobile computing. The goal is to ease daily basic tasks through the deployment of ambient intelligence by taking into account usage context. Thus, ubiquitous computing involves the construction of a global network where environment elements are interconnected and IT resources are transparent for the user. It exploits information issued from users’ environment in order to deploy context-aware services which are capable of adapting to the context of use to meet client needs.

Ubiquitous Information Systems (UBIS) is an emerging type of IS where information technology is gradually embedded in the environment. UBIS goes beyond conventional IS to cover a complex and dynamic environment composed of multiple artifacts or devices. Furthermore, UBIS are able to perceive contextual information, and support mobility.
The goal of this session is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to focus on advanced information systems and ubiquitous computing, and to establish effective collaborations in these areas.

Authors are solicited to contribute to this session by submitting papers that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works, and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in ubiquitous computing and business applications of information systems.
