Call for Workshop Proposal

Ubiquitous sensors, connected devices, networking advances and diverse data sets are the driving force towards a smart world, in which computational intelligence is embedded in the physical environment to provide trustworthy and relevant services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence (UI) changes the computing landscape by enabling new breeds of applications and systems previously impossible. For example, by coupling everyday objects with intelligence, many tasks can now be simplified and automated. As a result, our living and working spaces become safer, more comfortable, and more efficient.

UIC-2014 workshops focus on new challenges and emerging issues on all aspects of an end-to-end UI ecosystem. Please refer to the conference CFP for more details. This is a unique opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to share original research results and practical development experiences.

The organizers of the workshop are responsible of forming program committee, advertising call for papers, reviewing submissions and planning the final program. UIC-2014 Workshop Co-chairs will assist in ensuring the quality and the success of the workshops. The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings, etc.

The proceedings of the UIC-2014 workshops will be published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services (submitted to the IEEE-DL and EI index).

Prospective workshop organizers should prepare a proposal containing the following information:

  • Title of the workshop – both full name and abbreviation
  • Objectives, scope, and contributions to the main conference (up to 1 page)
  • Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization
  • Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (e.g., how to advertise and special issues of journals), and the expected number of participants
  • A tentative list of program committee members
  • The (tentative) website/URL of your workshop
  • If this workshop has been held before, please also briefly describe its history (e.g., number of submissions and accepted papers, attendance, etc.)

Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates (announced later). The paper submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. However, there should be sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, paper submissions are at most 6 pages, and they should receive at least 3 peer reviews.

Please email your stimulating workshop proposals in PDF format by June 1, 2014 to the workshop co-chairs: Chieh-Jan Mike Liang (liang.mike (at) and Yuqing Sun (sun_yuqing (at) Please use “UIC-2014 workshop proposal” as the email subject. Proposal notifications will be sent out by June 15, 2014.
