About UBICNET 2022

Ubiquitous Communications and Network Computing (UBICNET) is a revolutionary concept that aims to provide pervasive and 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. Furthermore, the roll out of early fifth generation (5G) networks and massive ongoing research makes UBICNET more interesting and highly importance. From communication to computing whether it is Internet of Things (IoT), GPU, Fog and Edge Computing, Cloud Computing to enhanced mobile broadband data and low latency, the UBICNET covers entire breadth of interesting and emerging areas.
