== IMIS 2010 Call for Paper ===============================================
The 4th International Workshop on
Intelligent, Mobile and Internet Services in Ubiquitous Computing
(IMIS 2010)

February, 15th - 18th 2010
Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Cracow College, Krakow, Poland
(In Conjunction with CISIS 2010)

== Overview ==
With the proliferation of wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast growing interest in Ubiquitous and

Pervasive Computing (UPC). UPC enables to create a human-oriented computing environment where computer chips are embedded in

everyday objects and interact with physical world. Through UPC, people can get online even while moving around, thus having
almost permanent access to their preferred services. With a great potential to revolutionize our lives, UPC also poses new

research challenges.
This workshop will focus on the challenges and solutions for UPC with an emphasis on intelligent, mobile and internet

services. The workshop will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and

progress in the area of UPC. The workshop will publish high quality papers, which are closely related to the various theories

and practical applications in UPC. In addition, we expect that the workshop and its publications will be a
trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject

*** Author Instruction
Authors are invited to submit original papers: they must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have

published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences that have proceedings. The submission of

contributions to IMIS 2009 occurs through the IMIS 2009 submission website ..

You can confirm the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines at the following web page:

Submissions must not exceed more than 8 pages, including tables and figures, with only PDF. Submission of a paper implies

that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the workshop.
Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification
of acceptance.

*Proceedings & Special Issue
Proceedings of the workshop will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI).
The proceedings will be available at the conference. At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the CISIS 2010

site and present the paper at the workshop.

Authors of outstanding papers will be recommended to submit extended versions to several special issues on SCI(E) indexed

journals. For more details, please refer to
