The combination of mobile and ubiquitous computing is emerging as a promising new paradigm with the goal to provide computing and communication services all the time, everywhere, transparently and invisibly to the user, using devices embedded in the surrounding physical environment. In this context, the communication devices, the objects with which they  interact, or both may be mobile. The implementation of such a paradigm requires advances in wireless network technologies and devices, development of infrastructures supporting cognitive environments, and discovery and identification of ubiquitous computing applications and services. The second Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: networking and services (Mobiquitous-05) will cover all these aspects, representing a forum where practitioners and researchers coming from the many areas involved in ubiquitous solutions design and deployment will be able to interact exchanging the cross-layer experiences needed to build the overall ubiquitous systems. Areas addressed by the conference include: applications, service-oriented computing, middleware, networking, agents, knowledge management and databases.

PAPERS: Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. The conference is interested in contributions addressing all the areas associated with mobile and ubiquitous architectures, infrastructure and services. Technical works clearly identifying how the specific contributions fit to an overall working solution are particularly of interest. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:  All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Papers can be submitted online at https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/Mobiquitous2005/ . Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) or postscript version of their full paper.  Papers must not exceed 8 pages double column (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points. The deadline for registering the title and the abstract of the paper with our electronic submission system is February 16, 2005. The deadline for submitting the actual paper is February 23, 2005. All deadlines are 9:00 PM PST.

PUBLICATION: All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which is to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and to be made available online via IEEE Explore.  Papers of particular merit will be considered for publication in a special issue of ACM/Kluwer Mobile Networks (MONET) Journal .

WORKSHOPS: Proposals for one-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference are solicited.  A maximum of 2 pages should be submitted which include the workshop name, its scope and a list of topic of interests.  Proposals should be submitted to both the Workshop co-Chairs by December 17 2004.

DEMOS:  Proposals for research and industrial demos are solicited.  A maximum of 2 pages should be submitted which include a description of the  demo and needed resources from the conference organizers. Proposals should be submitted to Dr. Ramiro Liscano (Demo Chair) rliscano@ieee.org by June 15th, 2005.
