EAI UBICNET 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safetycomfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2021. Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chatvirtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience. All of this while making the registration for co-authors and non-authors completely free to give you the biggest possible audience. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences here.


UBIquitous Communications and NETwork Computing (UBICNET) is revolutionary concepts that aim to provide pervasive, reliable communication and computing services available anytime and anywhere. UBICNET has drawn significant interests from both academia and industry and continues to attract tremendous research efforts due to its promising new business opportunity in information technology and engineering. Ubiquitous communication and computing is the growing trend and became one of the requirements for most of the people around the globe. While ubiquitous communication ensures communication anywhere with anyone, ubiquitous computing devices are completely connected and consistently available. Ubiquitous network computing relies on the convergence of wireless technologies, advanced electronics and Internet and Internet of Things (IoT). This emerging technology is built upon a wide range of key areas including wireless and sensor networks, mobile and distributed computing, embedded systems, IoT, agent technologies, autonomic communication, and information security.

All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library: UBICNET Conference Proceedings.

Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
