UBICOMP/ISWC 2021 Showcases Latest Research in Ubiquitous Computing

Conference on Ubiquitous, Pervasive and Wearable Computing to Be Held Virtually September 21-26

New York, NY, September 15, 2021 – ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, will hold the annual ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2021), co-located with the ACM International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC 2021), virtually from September 21-26, 2021.

UbiComp is the premier interdisciplinary venue for leading international researchers, designers, developers, and practitioners in the field to present and discuss novel results in all aspects of ubiquitous, pervasive and wearable computing. This includes the design, development, and deployment of ubiquitous and pervasive computing technologies and the understanding of human experiences and social impacts that these technologies facilitate.

UbiComp is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Mobility of Systems, Users, Data and Computing (SIGMOBILE) and the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI).

This year’s program includes two keynote talks, 11 workshops, two tutorials, and 38 posters and demos.
