Message from Organizing Co-Chairs

Welcome to ICUFN 2010 the Second International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks, organized by Korea Information and Communications Society (KICS) and technically cosponsored by IEEE Communications Society (ComSoC).

  During the first decade of the 21st century, we have witnessed the tremendous growth of the Internet and the wireless ubiquitous technologies, which make the globalization just a click away. In this global era, the importance of computer networking and mobile ubiquitous technologies cannot be under-estimated. In fact, such technologies have now greatly impacted our lives and influenced the way we work, commute, shop, etc.  
  To provide a great opportunity to exchange the state of the art research advances in ubiquitous technologies and expand the research community, we have decided to hold the second ICUFN in Jeju Island, Korea because Jeju Island is famous for its mild oceanic climate throughout the year with the smallest annual temperature range in the country.  
  ICUFN is a truly international annual conference! Our TPC team consists of members from countries around the world. For ICUFN 2010, we have received over 130 submissions from many different countries and 51 papers have been accepted. We have also invited 23 papers from many established researchers. We have prepared an exciting and comprehensive program for you. We hope you will take this good opportunity to attend the technical sessions, meet the authors, and foster greater collaboration ties with other researchers. In addition, if you have additional time, please do not miss the chance to tour around Jeju Island and enjoy the fantastically shaped rocks decorating the seashores, the hundreds of Oreums(secondary volcanos) and the rarest species of fl ora around the Baekrok-dam lake at the summit of the Mt. Halla.  
  We hope you will have a fruitful time in Jeju Island, Korea! We look forward to your participation and support in the future.  
  Thank you.
Sincerely yours,
