The Second International Symposium on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Smart Worlds (UISW2005)

Nagasaki, Japan, December 6-7, 2005

in conjunction with the IFIP International Conference on Embedded And Ubiquitous Computing (EUC’2005) 

** The 175 submissions  were received from 20 countries **

** About one-third of the submitted papers  are accepted **

Following ubiquitous computers, networks, information, services, etc., is a road towards a smart world (SW) created on both cyberspaces and real spaces. A SW is mainly characterized by ubiquitous intelligence (UI) or computational intelligence pervasive in the physical world, filled with ubiquitous intelligent or smart real things, that are capable of computing, communicating, and behaving smartly with some intelligence. One of the profound implications of such ubiquitous smart things is that various kinds and levels of intelligence will exist ubiquitously in everyday objects, environments, systems and even ourselves, and possibly be extended from man-made to natural things. Ubicomp” or percomp can be regarded as the computing of all these intelligent/smart real things, i.e., u-things, that are essential elements and components of the SW.

A smart thing can be endowed with different levels of intelligence, and may be context-aware, active, interactive, reactive, proactive, assistive, adaptive, automated, sentient, perceptual, cognitive, autonomic and/or thinking. Intelligent/smart things is an emerging research field covering many disciplines. A series of grand challenges exist to move from the ubiquitous world with universal services of any means/place/time to the SW of trustworthy services with the right means/place/time. UISW2005 is a successor of the 1st International Workshop on Ubiquitous Smart Worlds (USW2005) held at Taipei in March, and offers a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in developing intelligent/smart objects, environments, and systems as well as discuss various personal/social/physical issues faced by UI and SWs.
