******************************************************
SenCity workshop @ Ubicomp 2013 - 9th September, Zurich
******************************************************
http://sencity.cities.io

Due to several requests we have decided to extend the deadline for 
workshop submissions to *Friday 21st June*.
We hope that you will consider submitting to what we believe will be a 
fun, creative and hands-on workshop!  See below for details...

> CfP: SenCity, Uncovering the Hidden Pulse of a City

>   9th September 2013, Zurich, Switzerland

> In conjunction with Ubicomp 2013
>
>
>   Summary and Theme
>
> This is a one day workshop of hands-on, focused activities performed 
> in cross-disciplinary groups.  The theme and focus of the workshop 
> activities is sensing and visualising the "hidden pulse" of the city.  
> Groups will be challenged to design and develop a sensing unit that 
> will capture some hidden element of Zurich city (e.g. crowdedness, 
> pollution levels, etc.).  A development kit (consisting of a mini 
> processing unit and a variety of pluggable sensors), sample code 
> snippets and a development environment will be provided to enable 
> rapid prototyping.    In addition to learning new hardware and 
> development skills, groups will also have the chance to deploy their 
> sensing units around Zurich.  The captured data will be fed into a 
> visualisation framework that will present a combined view of the data 
> captured by all groups. Participants will be encouraged to consider 
> the hardware involved and the issues of deploying sensors in a 
> real-world urban environment as well as the final visuals.

>
>   Topics of interest
>
> Positions at this hands-on workshop are limited.  Therefore we invite 
> authors to submit a position paper for peer review (plus accompanying 
> biography), to be considered as a workshop participant.  Topics of 
> interest include (but are not limited to):
>
> ·Crowd-sensing and monitoring of an urban environment
>
> ·Rapid prototyping with sensor technologies

> ·Visualising complex data from urban sensors or the urban crowd
>
> ·Novel applications for mobile devices, public displays and social 
> networking services

>
>   Submission format
>
> Workshop candidates are requested to send a position paper of no more 
> than 2 pages long in SIGCHI archival format, and must in addition
