During the last decade, we have witnessed fast developments of various
networking technologies, and many forms of networking are core parts of
our daily lives now. With the proliferation of future wireless
technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast growing interest
in ubiquitous and future networks. In the days to come, we expect that
the ubiquitous communication and networking technologies will become
ubiquitous along with the emergence of many future networking
technologies. The ubiquitous and future network will offer multiservice,
multimedia services convergence, mobility, service ubiquity and context
awareness, fixed-mobile convergence, quality of service, variable
connectivity, spontaneous networking, autonomic networking and other
capabilities as the norm. The first International Conference on
Ubiquitous and Future Networks (IEEE ICUFN) aims at addressing advances in
research on ubiquitous and future networks, covering topics ranging from
technology issues to applications and test-bed developments.
ICUFN 2009 solicits original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of
ubiquitous and future networking. Submitted articles must not be
concurrently considered elsewhere for publication.
The conference is organized by KICS, Korea, with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE
Communications Society. All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings with
assigned IEEE ISBN number and will also be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
