About IUPT 2011

A Brief Introduction

Recently, most of real world physical entities are connected together with the digital world through wired and wireless networks through the Internet. This connection is facilitated by diverse technologies provided by many researchers from different disciplines. To name few of these technologies that became common are sensors, RFIDs, short- and long-range communications, intelligent objects, and mobile devices.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers in an effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the issues and opportunities to explore new research directions and develop new ideas for the Internet of Ubiquitous and Pervasive Things.

The International Workshop on Internet of Ubiquitous and Pervasive Things will take place in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2011), Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada in September 19-21, 2011.
