Call for Papers

Scope

Ubiquitous Communications and Network Computing (UBICNET) are revolutionary concept that aim to provide pervasive and reliable communication and computing services available anytime and anywhere. UBICNET has drawn significant interests from both academia and industry and continues to attract tremendous research efforts due to its promising new business opportunity in information technology and engineering. Ubiquitous communication and computing is the growing trend and became one of the requirements for most of the people around the globe. While ubiquitous communication ensures communication anywhere with anyone, ubiquitous computing devices are completely connected and constantly available. Ubiquitous network computing relies on the convergence of wireless technologies, advanced electronics and Internet and what we can call it as Internet of Things (IoT). This emerging technology is built upon a wide range of key areas including wireless and sensor networks, mobile and distributed computing, embedded systems, IoT, agent technologies, autonomic communication, and information security.
