With the rapid development and increasing complexity of computer systems and communication networks, user requirements for embedded and ubiquitous computing are becoming more and more demanding. Therefore, there is a grand challenge that traditional computing techniques may not meet user requirements in open, dynamic, heterogeneous, mobile, wireless, and distributed computing environments. As a result, we need to build embedded systems and networks based on ubiquitous computing. As important and innovative technologies, embedded and ubiquitous computing techniques are attracting researchers with more and more attention.
Embedded ubiquitous computing is promising to improve people’s quality of life by creating new applications based on data processing in IoT network. Many research efforts have been performed on novel processing and communication architectures, technologies and management strategies. Embedded ubiquitous computing systems can leverage wireless sensor networks to collect and process data and use cloud technologies, peer-to-peer systems, and big data paradigms to provide computing and analytics capabilities.
Nowadays, because of the growth of smart devices, embedded ubiquitous computing technologies and combined with cyber world to provide many smart services, the Internet of Things (IoT) became more promising to realize that various embedded applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services. As an emerging research topic, embedded ubiquitous computing relate to and support a computing vision for a greater range including smart devices (mobile, wireless, service), smart environments (of embedded system devices) and smart interaction (between devices). The EUC conference aims, as such, to provide a platform for the dissemination of recent research efforts that explicitly aim at addressing these challenges, and supports the presentation of advanced solutions in these areas.
