The 4nd International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing Application and Wireless Sensor Network (UCAWSN-15) will be held in Jeju, Korea, July 8-10, 2015.
The UCAWSN-15 will be the most comprehensive conference focused on Ubiquitous Computing Application and Wireless Sensor Network (UCA-WSN).
The UCAWSN-15 will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of UCAWSN such as Ubiquitous and context-aware computing, context-awareness reasoning and representation, locations awareness services, architectures, protocols and algorithms of WSN, energy, management and control of WSN, etc.
In addition, the conference will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in UCA-WSN. Furthermore, we expect that the conference and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.

Papers presented in the UCAWSN-15 will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (Post proceeding), ISSN: 1876-1100, which will be indexed by EI & SCOPUS Compendex.
And many good papers will be recommended to intl' journals indexed by SCI/E or SCOPUS.
