Call for students: 1st International UBI Summer School 2010
May 31 - June 4, 2010, Oulu, Finland

http://www.ubioulu.fi/en/UBI-summer-school-2010

The purpose of the summer school is to provide young researchers with  
an opportunity to gain deeper insight to the multidisciplinary fields  
of ubiquitous and urban computing, to stimulate international R&D  
networking and to promote the UBI-challenge.

The summer school comprises of six parallel workshops:

A: Real World Context-Aware Systems
by Professor Anind Dey, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

B: Urban Informatics and Sustainable Cities
by Associate Professor Marcus Foth, Queensland University of  
Technology, Australia

C: Urban Social Networks Analysis
by Professor Vassilis Kostakos, University of Madeira, Portugal

D: Creating and Sharing Artistic Experiences with Ubiquitous Technology
by Jürgen Scheible, Aalto University, Finland

E: IP-based Wireless Sensor Networks
by CTO Zach Shelby, Sensinode, Finland

F: Interactive Textures – rethinking materiality
by Professor Mikael Wiberg, Umeå University, Sweden


How to apply:

The number of students accepted for each workshop is limited.  
Therefore, prospective young researchers should email by Apr 19, 2010  
to Professor Timo Ojala ([log in to unmask]) a one page statement  
(PDF), which contains your contact information, a brief description of  
your research interests in ubiquitous and/or urban computing, a brief  
desciprtion of your motivation to attend the summer school, and a  
ranked list of the workshop(s) you would be interested in attending.  
If you are accepted to the summer school, then you will work in one  
particular workshop for the whole week. For example, if you wish to  
first attend workshop E but in case it would not be available you  
would also consider attending workshop B, then please state "my  
preferred workshops: E B" in your statement.


Best regards,

Professor Timo Ojala
