Call For Papers
During the last decade, we have witnessed fast developments of various networking technologies, and many forms of networking and systems are becoming core parts of our daily lives. With the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast growing interest in ubiquitous and future networks. In the days to come, we expect that the ubiquitous communication and networking technologies will become ubiquitous along with the emergence of many future networking technologies. The ubiquitous and future network will offer multiservice, multimedia services convergence, mobility, service ubiquity and context awareness, fixedmobile convergence, quality of service, variable connectivity, spontaneous networking, autonomic networking and other capabilities as the norm. Building on the success of the last ten years, the eleventh International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN 2020) aims at addressing advances in research on ubiquitous and future networks, covering topics ranging from technology issues to emerging applications and test-bed developments. ICUFN 2020 solicits original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of ubiquitousand future networking and system. Submitted articles must not be concurrently considered elsewhere for publication. We also encourage authors to submit short papers on the early stages of research or development in progress, which present important new challenges. Position papers on new idea and industry papers are also welcome. The conference is organized by KICS (The Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences) with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Communications Society and IEICE Communications Society. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICUFN 2020 Conference Proceedings with an assigned ISBN number. Also Extended versions of selected papers will be published in the following international journals as a special section for the ICUFN 2020.

Submission Guidelines:

All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Please make sure that both full paper and short papers must be at minimum 3 pages in length. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (
