Call For Papers
The sixth international symposium on Ubiquitous Networking (UNet’21) highlights new trends and findings in hot topics related to ubiquitous computing/networking. This event intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their recent progresses in all major areas of ubiquitous networking. The UNet’21 program will host special talks addressed by distinguished keynote speakers and highly reputed visionary experts, and will feature technical papers, tutorials, special sessions, and workshops.

Papers delivered at UNet 2021 will be published by IEEE (pending) and indexed by IEEE Xplore. They will also be submitted to SCOPUS, ISI, DBLP, Google Scholar, and other leading indexing services. Papers of particular merit will be recommended for a possible special issue in international journals (discussions are underway with several international journals for publishing the accepted papers). A PDF version of the call for papers can be found here. The conference invites two types of submissions: Full Technical Papers (up to 6 pages), and Short Technical Papers (up to 4 pages). A detailed description of papers submission procedure is available via this link. UNet 2021 will features thematic content, but not limited to, across the following tracks:
