Transcript of "UbiComp 2007 Town Hall"

  1. 1. UbiComp 2007 Town Hall Joe McCarthy Nokia Research Center Informal Chair, Informal UbiComp Steering Committee
  2. 2. UbiComp Steering Committee http://www.ubicomp.org/sc
  3. 3. Known Issues (5 min max) • UbiComp 2008 CfP • Number of tracks • Re-introducing short papers / notes • ACM Press vs. Springer LNCS • Electronic and/or paper proceedings • Conference / workshop proliferation • To affiliate, or not to affiliate • Commemorating our 10th meeting (2008) • UbiComp 2009? • Dinner: 18:30 (hard stop: 18:00)
  4. 4. http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2008
  5. 5. Number of Tracks •1
  6. 6. Short Papers / Notes • 4 ACM 2-column pages vs 10 for full papers • Tech Notes category in UbiComp 2001-03 • New: Papers + Notes judged by the same PC and at the same PC meeting • Interspersed in proceedings with full papers • Referenced simply as “In Proceedings of UbiComp 2008” • Presented as a shorter presentation in main track • Benefit: increase # of papers in single track
  7. 7. ACM Press vs. Springer • Springer proceedings have been removed from the “SCI list” (rating system for Korea, Japan, etc.) – Using Springer may be detrimental to local submission and participation • UbiComp 2008 will be in-cooperation with the ACM (SIGMOBILE accepted; SIGCHI, SIGWEB, SIGSOFT pending) – UbiComps in the past have had in-cooperation status • Proceedings will be published by ACM Press • No financial tie to ACM other than for proceedings production (finances managed by Sungkyunkwan University) … for 2008
  8. 8. Electronic and/or Paper? Motivation to move to electronic proceedings: • Reduce lead time from >6 months to 3 months • Get research in front of the community more quickly • Promote UbiComp’s active, dynamic atmosphere Potential Changes: • Electronic version [only] at conference • Paper version available some weeks later • Move deadline from March/April to June (?)
  9. 9. Venue Proliferation • HotMobile – 9th ACM Workshop on Mobile Systems and Applications – Napa, CA, 26-27 February 2008 • IEEE PerCom – 6th Int’l Conf. on Pervasive Computing and Communications – Hong Kong, 17-18 March 2008 • Pervasive – 6th Int’l Conf. on Pervasive Computing – Sydney, 19-22 May 2008 • MobiSys – 6th ACM/USENIX Conf. on Mobile Sys., Apps. and Services – Breckenridge, CO, 10-13 June 2008 • Mobiquitous – 4th Annual Int’l Conf. on Mobile & Ubiquitous Systems – Philadelphia, PA, 6-10 August 2007 • LoCA – 3rd Symposium on Location- and Context-Aware Systems – Munich, 20-21 September 2007 • UbiComp – 10th Int’l Conf. on Ubiquitous Computing – Seoul, 21-24 September 2008
  10. 10. Affiliation • We can reconsider requesting ACM sponsorship in 2009 • “ACM UbiComp” only if sponsored, “UbiComp” otherwise • SIG(s) must financially underwrite the conference to be ACM sponsored, separate finances for in-cooperation – Removal of financial risk currently taken on by local organisation – 18% fee added to expenses by ACM, covering admin services etc • Proceedings can be published by the ACM if in- cooperation with at least one SIG • There exist other conferences which maintain independent steering committees and identities, yet are ACM- sponsored, typically by >1 SIG – MobileHCI, DUX, CSCW, UIST – SIGMOBILE exec has indicated support for this approach
  11. 11. UbiComp 2009? • Proposals – Conference Chair(s) – Venue (locale, site) – Program outline (dates, categories) – Finances (underwriter, budget) • Preference: North America • Send to: joe.mccarthy@nokia.com – Who will formally forward to the informal UbiComp steering committee
  12. 12. UbiComp #10 (2008) • Ways of commemorating this milestone?
  13. 13. Unknown Issues?
  14. 14. Dinner • Last bus [to dinner]: 18:30 • Asynchronous feedback: joe.mccarthy@nokia.com
