The 7th International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN 2015)

July 7(Tue.) ~ July 10(Fri.), 2015

Sapporo, Japan

Call for Papers

 During the last decade, we have witnessed fast developments of various networking technologies, and many forms of networking are becoming core parts of our daily lives. With the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast growing interest in ubiquitous and future networks. In the days to come, we expect that the ubiquitous communication and networking technologies will become ubiquitous along with the emergence of many future networking technologies. The ubiquitous and future network will offer multiservice, multimedia services convergence, mobility, service ubiquity and context awareness, fixed-mobile convergence, quality of service, variable connectivity, spontaneous networking, autonomic networking and other capabilities as the norm. Building on the success of the last six years, the seventh International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN 2015) aims at addressing advances in research on ubiquitous and future networks, covering topics ranging from technology issues to emerging applications and test-bed developments. ICUFN 2015 solicits original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of ubiquitous and future networking. Submitted articles must not be concurrently considered elsewhere for publication. The conference is organized by KICS (The Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences) with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Communications Society and IEICE-CS. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICUFN 2015 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore. The ICUFN 2015 Conference Proceedings will also be submitted for indexing through EI Compendex, ScienceDirect, Scopus, Web of Knowledge, Thomson ISI, and IET Inspect.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (
