About the Conference

This International Conference is a major event to be conducted
following the grand success of series of ObCom conferences during 2003
and 2004, which were audited by a good number of participants from
Academia and Industry across the World. The past ObCom conferences
received good contributions from academia, industry and research
organizations. Our sponsors included governmental and non-governmental
agencies like DRDO, ISTE, DIT, CSIR etc.

With the fast changing technologies and customer-driven product
development in the arena of wireless communication and mobile
computing, the researchers and design engineers have to cope up with
the fast changing end-users' requirement, drastically reduced
time-to-market and globalization. The above complexities can be handled
and managed with the increased use of objects and components based
software development. Handheld devices, smart places, wearable
computing and disappearing computing phenomenon are diversifying and
increasingly becoming an integral part of our everyday and working
lives. It is very apt to have this years' theme of ObCom as
"Mobile, Ubiquitous & Pervasive Computing". The theme would focus
on what are the challenges and issues while designing and building the
new spectrum of human-computer interfaces prevalent in Mobile,
Ubiquitous & Pervasive Computing. The main aim of this conference is to
bring experts, researchers, faculty and students together to discuss
about the technological advancements.

How to Reach

VIT is located at Vellore, a district headquarters town between the two
important cities of Chennai (formerly Madras) and Bangalore (known as
the Silicon Valley of the South Asia). Its campus, spread over 250
acres on the Ranipet-Katpadi Road, facilitating easy access to Ranipet,
a well-known industrial centre, provides an ideal environment for both
study and industrial interaction. The nearest airport is Chennai, 2 ½
hours drive away. Bangalore airport is at 3 hours drive from VIT. You
may also reach the institute by train, getting down at Katpadi
Junction, which is 3 km from the Institute.
