               The 11th IEEE International Conference on
          Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC 2014)
         - Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces-
        December 9-12, 2014, Ayodya Resort, Bali, Indonesia
            Co-located with ATC-2014 and ScalCom-2014

Ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and information are paving the way
towards a smart world in which computational intelligence is distributed
throughout the physical environment to provide reliable and relevant
services to people. This ubiquitous intelligence will change the computing
landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and systems to
be developed and the realm of computing possibilities will be significantly
extended. By enhancing everyday objects with intelligence, many tasks and
processes could be simplified, the physical spaces where people interact
like the workplaces and homes, could become more efficient, safer and more
enjoyable. Ubiquitous computing, or pervasive computing, uses these many
"smart things or u-things" to create smart environments, services and

A smart thing can be endowed with different levels of intelligence, and may
be context-aware, active, interactive, reactive, proactive, assistive,
automated, sentient, perceptual, cognitive, autonomic and/or thinking.
Research on ubiquitous intelligence is an emerging research field covering
many disciplines. A series of grand challenges exist to move from the
level of computing services to the smart world of adaptive and intelligent
services. Started in 2005, the series of UIC conferences has been held in
Taipei, Nagasaki, Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong, Oslo, Brisbane, Xi'an,
Banff, Fukuoka, and Vietri sul Mare, Italy. UIC 2014 will include a highly
selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel
discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the
area of ubiquitous intelligence and computing, UIC 2014 will offer a forum
for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in developing
intelligent/smart objects, environments and systems.
