International Workshop on Managing Ubiquitous
3nd International Workshop on Managing Ubiquitous Communications and Services (MUCS)
Autonomic Pervasive Computing & Communications
in cooperation with Pervasive 2006
May 4th and 5th 2006
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Ubiquitous and Pervasive Communications, as evidenced in pervasive computing and smart space applications present significant management challenges for successful delivery of highly adaptive services across heterogeneous networks, middleware, applications and devices. Today’s management systems are unable to cope with the complexity, heterogeneity and automation required by the pervasive computing vision. New paradigms, models and technology need to be developed to allow computer systems manage themselves in accordance with high-level guidance from humans. This workshop seeks to explore the theoretic, technological and organisational challenges in managing ubiquitous communications and application services.
The workshop provides a single-track scientific programme containing a blend of keynote presentations from leaders in the research of communications and services management systems, peer-reviewed papers and a small selection of invited presentations. The goal of the workshop is to investigate the state of the art in managing ubiquitous communications and services from a broad perspective. Submissions are invited for original, and previously unpublished research in all aspects of management techniques in ubiquitous communications, including:
