Colloquium Call for Participation:
"Building Bridges: Interdisciplinary Context-Sensitive Computing"

Place and Date:
9th September 2002
Senate Room, University of Glasgow.

We have an interesting and varied selection of speakers organised. Final 
programme is available at

Registration is now available at

Aims and Topics:
BB-ICSC is a one day workshop bringing together research scientists from 
different research areas concerned with Context-Sensitive system design. 
The aim of this workshop is to build bridges between these disciplines in 
order to:
 identify the impact each of these domains may have on the other domains 
in the area of context-sensitive computing,
 build mechanisms to facilitate communication across boundaries of 
expertise and discipline, and
 articulate research problems that require contribution from two or more 
research areas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 Interaction: what can we do with interactive applications that sense 
data? What mechanisms are required to exploit, present and manipulate 
sensed data? How can data be presented in a multiple media based 
application using multiple interaction paradigms (e.g. AR, VR, Web based, 
etc.) simultaneously?
 Design: Which methods / languages / models should be used to describe the 
combination and integration of physical and digital entities? Which 
characteristics have to be taken into account? How can these 
characteristics be represented? How can these representations be evaluated?
 Software Technology for Sensing: What are the architectural requirements 
for best supporting the integration of software aspects required to sense 
data? How can we generalise the transfer, communication, transformation, 
etc. of sensed data?
 Devices: What do we need from context-sensing devices? How does the 
choice of device affect the design of context-sensitive systems?

Participation and Submission:
We are looking for contributions that discuss results or problems which, 
although focused on one of the topics of interest described above, are 
likely to be of interest to other communities. Papers may, for example, 
illustrate when collaboration with one of the other communities would be 
useful or when work in one area impacts upon that in other communities. All 
authors should therefore keep in mind that contributions should be 
understandable by participants from all communities.

Participation in this workshop requires the participant to submit either a 
position paper of up to two pages presenting their own activity or 
experience in the field of Context-Sensitive system design or a more 
substantial paper of up to 6 pages describing their activities in more 
detail. The workshop organizers will select participants based on a review 
of submitted position papers, taking into account scientific quality and 
relation to the workshop topics.

Accepted papers will be compiled into a working document delivered to all 
the participants of the workshop. A selection of long papers will be chosen 
for presentation at the workshop and/or publication. Papers should be 
submitted by email to [log in to unmask]

Web Site:

Number of Participants: We intend to limit participants to around 50.

Important dates:
 Position paper submission (up to 2 pages): August 30th 2002
 Participants will be notified of acceptance shortly after the submission

Note: A 'Mobile Computing in Medical Context' workshop will be held in the 
same place September the 10th. Attendees of the BB-ICSC workshop may attend 
to the second workshop without having to submit another position paper.
