Abstract

The development and availability of new computing and communication devices, and the increased connectivity between these devices, thanks to wired and wireless networks, are enabling new opportunities for people to perform their operations anywhere and anytime. This technological expansion has developed a multitude of challenges that demand further research.

Advances in Ubiquitous Computing: Future Paradigms and Directions investigates the technology foreground of ubiquitous computing, the emerging applications and services, as well as certain social issues that are vital for the successful deployment of a ubiquitous computing application, through a multi-perspective analytical lens. Providing academics and practitioners with high quality, authoritative content on such topics as device design, wireless communication, location sensing, privacy concerns, attention focus, multi-person interaction, and direct interaction, work patterns, this Premier Reference Source is a must-have addition to library collections worldwide.
