The summer school comprises of six parallel workshops:

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.
