Fourth UK Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Systems Research Symposium

4th-5th July 2022, UCL



Mobile, wearable and ubiquitous systems have a pivotal role in today’s society and daily life. Research and innovation in these domains has the potential to unlock important new applications and open the door to a better understanding of their use.

Building on the success of the previous symposiums, the venue this year supports discussion and presentation of research within the UK mobile, wearable and ubiquitous systems community.

We solicit the submission of one page presentation abstracts. The work described can range from mature published recent ideas to more preliminary contributions on the following general topics:

  • Mobile, wearable, sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Applications and implications of mobile, wearable, sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Emerging mobile technologies: augmented reality, self-driving cars, drones, etc.
  • Privacy and security of mobile, wearable, sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Resource-efficient machine learning for embedded and mobile platforms
  • Mobile and spatial analytics and pervasive data science
  • Personalised machine learning solutions for on device inference
  • Experiences and evaluation of mobile, wearable, sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Mobile and spatial analytics and pervasive data science
  • Innovations in learning algorithms and models for sensor perception and understanding
  • Mobile and wireless networking
  • Edge computing and its implications for mobile systems
  • Holistic design of mobile systems for performance and energy optimisation
  • Mobile systems in the Internet of Things ecosystem
  • Mobile systems and applications for the developing world
  • Assistive devices and telepresence

Submissions of one page presentation abstracts will be reviewed and selected for oral presentation based on scope as indicated above. Preference for presentation will be given to early career researchers in case of over-submission. All presented submissions will be published on the programme website (

Location: UCL, London

The Symposium will be hosted by the The Department of Computer Science, University College London and takes place in the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, UCL Main Building, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT London.

Directions: UCL publishes general travel information. The main UCL building can be found on Google Maps. The easiest way to reach the lecture theatre itself is to enter through the main gates for UCL on Gower Street, opposite the Cruciform building. The Wilkins Building (the building with the portico and the dome) will be directly in front of you. Head towards this building and turn right. (You do not need to climb the stairs). There will be a doorway leading into the South Cloister building, ignore this and take the second door which will be in the far right hand corner. Upon entering this door turn right and walk through a second set of doors keeping to the right again. There will be a staircase in front of you with signs leading to the Gustave Tuck lecture theatre. Walk up the stairs, (two flights) and the lecture theatre will be on your right-hand side.


Attendees should book their own accommodation in a local hotel or bed & breakfast.

Symposium Reception

The symposium reception will take place on the evening of the 4th July in the Haldane Room, UCL Main Building.
