Call for Papers

The 15th KIPS International Conference on Ubiquitous Information Technologies and Applications (CUTE 2021) will be held on Dec. 15-17, 2021, Jeju, Korea. The CUTE 2021 will be the most comprehensive conference focused on the various aspects of advances in computer science and its applications. The CUTE 2020 will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of Ubiquitous Information Technologies and Applications. In addition, the conference will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in CUTE. Furthermore, we expect that the conference and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.
