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ICUFN 2009 solicits original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of ubiquitous and future networking.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.
