Special Issue on: "Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing"

Guest Editors:

Embedded and ubiquitous computing is a post-desktop model of human-computer interaction in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities.

The any place/any time/any means vision of ubiquitous computing has had an explosive impact on academics, industry, government and daily life. It has evolved into an active area of research and development due to the tremendous advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and topics including mobile and distributed computing, embedded system design, RFID technology and the ubiquitous mobile phone.

This special issue will mainly publish high-quality papers that represent the state-of-the-art and the latest advances in embedded and ubiquitous computing areas in all aspects such as methodologies, models, designs and implementations.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 11th IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC 2013), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
