About the book

Ubiquitous computing is often mentioned as an application domain with blurry or even undefined rules, boundaries, and examples. Fortunately, there are several concepts, developments, and pieces of research that have been put forward into this book (data integration, distributed systems, data enhancement via blockchain or machine learning, etc.) which explain what ubiquitous computing is and how it can be used to everyone´s advantage. All these contributions are based on research works and developments involving areas of knowledge such as the Internet of Things, Autonomous Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Wireless Sensor Networks. Among other topics, heterogeneous hardware integration, low capability distributed systems, microservices, security deployments for autonomous devices, or data mining procedures are fully mentioned and described here. In this way, this book provides a holistic view onto the field of ubiquitous computing and all its features, both related to the software and hardware, while at the same time offering knowledge from cutting edge projects that provide the backbone of the contents that have been included.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
