Fifth UK Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Systems Research Symposium

3rd-4th July 2023, Lancaster University



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.

Building on the success of the previous symposiums, the venue this year supports discussion and presentation of research within the UK mobile, wearable and ubiquitous systems community.

We solicit the submission of one 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, drones, etc.
  • Privacy and security of mobile, wearable, sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Resource-efficient machine learning for embedded and mobile platforms
  • Biosensing and health monitoring
  • Personalised machine learning solutions for on device inference
  • Experiences and evaluation of mobile, wearable, sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Innovations in learning algorithms and models for sensor perception and understanding
  • Mobile and wireless networking
  • Holistic design of mobile systems for performance and energy optimisation

Submissions of one page presentation abstracts will be reviewed and selected for oral presentation based on scope as indicated above. Preference for presentation will be given to early career researchers in case of over-submission. All presented submissions will be published on the programme website (
