Thiago Henrique Silva, Clayson S. F. de S. Celes, Vinicius Fernandes Soares Mota, Antonio Alfredo Ferreira Loureiro


In this work we use a dataset of papers published in top conferences focused on ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) to provide an overview and analysis of recent ubiquitous computing research performed internationally and in Brazil. The contributions of this study are twofold. First, we extracted useful information from our dataset such as representativeness of authors and institutions, and the formation of communities. Second, we analyzed all papers published between 2010 and 2011 in all top international conferences, creating a taxonomy of recent ubicomp research performed internationally. Afterthat we mapped SBCUP papers (Brazilian ubicomp conference) according to this taxonomy, which enables the comparison of international and national research. This study is useful to guide novices in the field and it also provides experienced researchers with facts enabling the discussion of ubicomp research.

Key words: Ubiquitous computing, scientific network, collaboration network, Pervasive, Percom, Ubicomp, SBCUP, taxonomy, characterization.
