>> 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
>>
>> ·New methods of crowdsourcing in urban environments
>>
>> ·Sensing for sustainable behavioural change
>>
>> ·Visualising complex data from urban sensors or the urban crowd
>>
>> ·Novel applications for mobile devices, public displays and social 
>> networking services
>>
>> ·New applications for urban spaces
>>
>>
>>   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 
>> include a short biography detailing their research interests and 
>> background.  Please download and use the required templates to 
>> prepare your submission.
