First UK Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Systems Research Symposium

12-13th September 2018, Computer Laboratory, Cambridge, UK



Mobile, wearable and ubiquitous systems have a pivotal role in today’s society and daily life. Research and innovation in these domains has the potential to unlock important new applications and open the door to a better understanding of their use.

The aim of this first symposium is to establish a venue for discussion and presentation of research within the UK mobile, wearable and ubiquitous systems community.

We solicit submission of 1 page presentation abstracts. The work described can range from mature published recent ideas to more preliminary contributions on the following general topics:

  • Mobile, Wearable, Sensing and Ubiquitous Systems
  • Applications and implications of Mobile, Wearable, Sensing and Ubiquitous Systems
  • Emerging Mobile Technologies: Augmented Reality, Self-driving Cars, etc.
  • Privacy and Security of Mobile, Wearable, Sensing and Ubiquitous Systems
  • Resource-efficient machine learning for embedded and mobile platforms
  • Experiences and evaluation of Mobile, Wearable, Sensing and Ubiquitous Systems
  • Mobile and Spatial Analytics and Pervasive Data Science
  • Innovations in learning algorithms and models for sensor perception and understanding
  • Mobile and Wireless Networking
  • Edge computing and its implications for mobile systems
  • Holistic design of mobile systems for performance and energy optimisation
  • Mobile systems in the Internet of Things ecosystem
  • Mobile systems and applications for the developing world

Submissions of one page presentation abstracts will not be peer reviewed and will be selected for oral presentation in a first come first served basis (giving preference to early career researchers in case of over-submission) and based on scope as indicated above. All presented submissions will be published on the programme website.
