Ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) focuses on human-computer interaction where processing is integreated into everyday objects. When we look at W3C's Ubiquitous Web Domain, they focus on "technologies to enable Web access for anyone, anywhere, anytime, using any device. This includes Web access from mobile phones as well as other emerging environments such as consumer electronics, interactive television, and even automobiles". When the Web becomes integrated with these environments, however we do not know how the Web accessibility can be considered and investigated. There are so many resaerch challenges that need to be addressed in this field.
