The goal of the 3rd International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous  
Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN-2011) is to bring together  
researchers and scientists with interests in ubiquitous and pervasive  
systems and related issues to address recent research results and to  
present and discuss their ideas, theories, technologies, systems,  
tools, applications, work in progress and experiences. The EUSPN  
program will include guest speakers, peer reviewed technical program,  
demos, short papers, posters and invited sessions on the same or  
related topics, industrial presentations, and exhibitions around but  
not limited to the following topics:
