With the proliferation of wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast growing interest in Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing (UPC). UPC enables to create a human-oriented computing environment where computer chips are embedded in everyday objects and interact with physical world. Through UPC, people can get online even while moving around, thus having almost permanent access to their preferred services. With a great potential to revolutionize our lives, UPC also poses new research challenges. This workshop will focus on the challenges and solutions for UPC with an emphasis on intelligent, mobile and internet services. The workshop will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of UPC. The workshop will publish high quality papers, which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in UPC. In addition, we expect that the workshop and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.
