The International Symposium On Ubiquitous Networking (www.unet-conf.org)?

     UNet is a new international scientific event that highlights new 
trends and findings in hot topics related to ubiquitous 
computing/networking. This first edition will be held on September 
08-10, 2015, in the fascinating city of Casablanca, Morocco.

    Ubiquitous networks sustain development of numerous paradigms/ 
technologies such as distributed ambient intelligence, 
context-awareness, cloud computing, wearable devices, and future mobile 
networking (e.g., B4G and 5G). Various domains are then impacted by such 
a system, one cite security and monitoring, energy efficiency and 
environment protection, e-health, precision agriculture, intelligent 
transportation, home-care (e.g., for elderly and disabled people), etc.

     ?    Communication in such a system has to cope with 
many constraints (e.g., limited capacity resources, energy depletion 
strong fluctuations of traffic, Real-time paradigm, dynamic network 
topology, radio link breakage, interferences, etc.) and has to meet the 
new application requirements. Ubiquitous systems bring many promising 
paradigms aiming to deliver significantly higher capacity to meet the 
huge growth of mobile data traffic and to accommodate efficiently dense 
and ultra-dense systems. A crucial challenge is that ubiquitous networks 
should be engineered to better support existing and emerging 
applications including broadband multimedia, machine-to-machine 
applications, Internet of things, sensor networks and RFID technologies. 
Many of these systems require stringent quality-of-service (QoS) 
including better latency, reliability, higher spectral and energy 
efficiency, but also some quality-of-experience and quality-of-context 

?    The main purpose of this symposium is to serve as a forum that 
brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry 
to discuss recent developments in pervasive and ubiquitous networks. 
This conference will provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss 
solutions, debate on identified challenges and share experiences among 
researchers and professionals. UNet aims also to promote adoption of new 
methodologies and to provide the participants with advanced and 
innovative tools able to catch the fundamental dynamics of the 
underlying complex interactions (e.g., game theory, Mechanism Design 
theory, Learning theory, SDR platforms, etc.). Papers describing 
original research on both theoretical and practical aspects of pervasive 
computing and future mobile computing (e.g., LTE-A, LTE-B, 5G) are 
invited for submission to UNet 2015.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers with 
unpublished material and not currently submitted for consideration 
elsewhere. Manuscripts should not exceed 12 LNCS formatted pages, 
including figures, tables, and references 
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0. At least 
one author of each accepted paper must register at full registration 
rate. An oral presentation at the symposium is strictly required. 
Failure to present the paper at the conference will result in the 
withdrawal of the paper from the Proceedings.

     Work-in-Progress & Position Papers : In addition to regular papers, 
Work-in-Progress (WIP) papers are also solicited. A special session for 
WIPs is expected and aims to present and discuss new issues and define 
insightful directions for future research. Position papers are also 
welcome, they aim to give the opportunity to authors to convince the 
audience that their ideas are valid and have a merit to be explored. 
Selected papers will be included in the UNet proceedings.

     Publication and Indexing Services : Papers delivered at UNet 2015 
will be published by Springer Verlag in a Lecture Notes serie (pending 
upon approval). They will also be submitted to SCOPUS, ISI, DBLP and 
other leading indexing services.

     Special Issues : Papers of particular merit will be considered for 
a possible special issue in an international journal, Discussions are 
underway with international journals for publishing the accepted papers.

     No-Show Policy : The Springer reserves the right to exclude a paper 
from distribution after the conference (including its removal from 
Springer Digital Library®) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

     Plagiarism policy and multiple submissions : Papers are reviewed on 
the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not 
been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double 
submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the Springer 
publisher may take action against any author who engages in either practice.

Submission System
Papers must be prepared using IEEE template and submitted electronically 
in PDF format via the Easychair system. Click here to submit a new paper.
