The any place/any time/any means vision of ubiquitous computing has explosive impact on academics, industry, government and daily life. This emergence is the natural result of research and technological advances in wireless and sensor networks, embedded systems, mobile computing, distributed computing, agent technologies, autonomic computing and communication. Many novel but more specific computing mechanisms and paradigms have been recently driven from the broad view of ubiquitous computing, such as pervasive, context-aware, sentient, invisible, disappearing, everyday, wearable, proactive, autonomic, organic, sustainable, handheld, palpable, amorphous, spray, embedded computing, ambient intelligence, etc.

Following ubiquitous computers and networks, is a road towards ubiquitous intelligence, i.e., computational intelligence pervasion in both the physical world and the cyber world. Such right place/right time/right means vision of ubiquitous intelligence will greatly reform our world to create a smart world filled with a variety of embedded intelligence or smart real and virtual things ranging from software to hardware, from man-made artifacts to natural objects, from everyday appliances to sophisticated systems, from small rooms to large buildings, from enclosed sites to open spaces, from stationary places to moveable vehicles, etc. The computational intelligence will not only function as the methods or tools in systems but also result in ubiquitous existence residing in everyday objects, surrounding environments, diverse systems and even ourselves. Such future existence of ubiquitous intelligence calls for re-thinking of the conventional intelligent computing, identifying implications and important issues of the foreseen smart world, and finding corresponding solutions by joint efforts and fusions of multiple disciplines. The ubiquitous intelligence, as an emerging and very promising multidiscipline, aims at new models and technologies for graceful integrations and mutual actions of real worlds and virtual e-worlds with different scales and purposes.

JUCI addresses the most innovative researches and developments in this multidiscipline and includes all aspects related to ubiquitous computing and ubiquitous intelligence as well as the smart world, with emphasis on methodologies, models, semantics, awareness, architectures, middleware, tools, designs, implementations, experiments, evaluations, and non-technical but crucial factors in the practical applications of ubiquitous computing and intelligence related to economics, society, culture, ethics and so on.


The objective of the JUCI journal is to provide an outstanding channel for academics, industrial professionals, educators and policy makers working in the different disciplines to contribute and to disseminate innovative and important new work in the broad ubiquitous computing areas and the emerging ubiquitous intelligence field.


Scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, graduate students, managers, and industrial professionals.


JUCI is a refereed international journal, initially published quarterly, providing an international forum to report, discuss and exchange experimental or theoretical results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas. Papers should be of a quality that represents the state-of-the-art and the latest advances in methodologies, models, semantics, awareness, architectures, middleware, tools, designs, implementations, experiments, evaluations, applications, non-technical factors and stimulating future trends.
