The International Journal of Advanced Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (IJAPUC) is an international refereed research journal integrating the disciplines of pervasive and ubiquitous computing, internet of physical objects, wireless sensor networks, wireless communications, radio frequency identification, automatic identification, real-time localization, information processing, cloud computing, and mass data storage. The journal provides a forum to information technology educators, researchers, and practitioners to advance the practice and understanding of pervasive and ubiquitous computing. The journal features a major emphasis on how to realize pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology and how to build the system in applications. IJAPUC publishes full-length research papers, state-of-the-art reviews, insightful research and practice notes, case studies and book reviews from all areas of pervasive and ubiquitous computing that are selected after a rigorous blind review by experts in the field.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Advanced Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (IJAPUC) is to provide entrance into a challenging new era of communication through combining evolving technologies and networking frameworks. Ubiquitous networking and pervasive computing are becoming more effective for solving intelligent systems–related problems, for example, intelligent security, intelligent transportation, intelligent environmental protection, intelligent logistics, and so forth. Ubiquitous computing connects not only networked terminals like mobile phones, computers, smart devices, but also daily life objects that have been considered just “un-networked things” or “inert objects”. This journal shows the emergence of ubiquitous computing in the world information industry.
