Nov 2009 UbiComp 2010

I have been invited and will serve on the Program Committee for the 2010 ACM Conference on Ubiquitous Computing to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from September 26-29 2010. The deadline for Papers and Notes is March 12, 2010. The Call for Papers for UbiComp 2010 can be found here.

Ubiquitous Computing (bridging the digital-physical divide) is central to several of the emerging research projects within the Human Interface Technology Research Laboratory Australia (HITLAB AU).

UbiComp 2010 is the 12th UbiComp conference and is one of the premier venues for presenting research in the design, development, deployment, evaluation and understanding of ubiquitous computing systems.

"UbiComp is an interdisciplinary field of research and development that utilizes and integrates pervasive, wireless, embedded, wearable and/or mobile technologies to bridge the gaps between the digital and physical worlds. UbiComp 2010 will bring together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both the technical and applied aspects of Ubiquitous Computing technologies, systems and applications. The Ubicomp 2010 program features keynotes, technical paper and notes sessions, specialized workshops, live demonstrations, posters, video presentations, and a Doctoral Colloquium."

Nov 2009 Internet of Things 2010 Conference

I have been invited and will serve on the Program Committee for the 2010 Internet of Things Conference. The Internet of Things (IoT) interlinks our physical and digital worlds hence bridging the digital-physical divide. This topic is very relevant to the emerging research projects within the Human Interface Technology Research Laboratory Australia (HITLAB AU).  

"This conference will continue the success of the Internet of Things conference from 2008 in Zurich. It brings internationally leading researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry together to facilitate sharing of applications, research results, and knowledge. The IoT2010 particularly encourages research on infrastructure and applications facilitating environmentaly responsibility under a theme "IoT for a Green Planet". The three-day event will feature keynotes from industrial and academic visionaries, technical presentations of cutting-edge research, reports on the user-experience from seasoned practitioners, panel discussions on hot topics, poster sessions summarizing late-breaking results, and hands-on demos of current technology.

The 2010 Conference will take place at the Royal Park Hotel in Tokyo from November 29 to December 1, 2010.

Nov 2009 Workshops at Pervasive '10

Pervasive 2010 is the eighth International Conference on Pervasive Computing from 17-20 May 2010 in Helsinki, Finland. The workshop program will be held on May 17th 2010. For 2010 our program is quite different than in the past years. We have four invited workshops from leading international research groups on targeted research topics, along with three workshops accepted in the first phase call and five accepted in the second phase call.

Workshops proposals have been reviewed by leading international experts in Pervasive Computing to access the quality of the proposals. As workshop chairs we carefully considered their reviews along with considering the relevance of the topic to Pervasive, potential interest, as well as the format, scope and overlap of workshops.

Thanks to all those who submitted workshop proposals and to our international reviewers. Special thanks to my workshop co-chair Petteri Nurmi for putting up with my international travel schedule while trying to arrange this program. My best wishes to Antonio and Mirjana on the main conference program for which the papers are under active review now.

A number of very interesting workshops will be at the conference next year.
