Many people living in developing countries are exposed to vulnerability conditions related to key development areas like education, health and security, and also eventual incidents like man-made and natural disasters. In various of these application domains, ubiquitous computing (UbiComp) can provide solutions to help reduce the people vulnerability and create resilient communities by improving connectivity and offering opportunities to engage in civic activities. The main goal of this workshop is to share novel research in this domain, and also leverage knowledge and practices to ideate innovative uses of UbiComp technologies. The workshop calls for articles reporting the design, implementation, usage and adoption of ubiquitous technology and tools to assist (directly or indirectly) civilians living in vulnerable conditions. The 2018 edition of the workshop considers the following application domains: digital inclusion, disaster management, and health support, and their related subtopics.
