UbiTtention 2016: Smart & Ambient Notification and Attention Management Workshop
in conjunction with ACM UbiComp 2016 (Heidelberg, Germany)
Date: Monday, September 13, 2016
Venue:  "Kammermusiksaal" (W19)

We welcome you to UbiTtention: Smart & Ambient Notification and Attention Management Workshop in UbiComp 2016. We have 15 exciting and inspiring papers in 4 sessions, "IoT and Attention", "Innovative and Ambient Notification", "Sensing Attentional Status", and "Future Challenges". (see the program below)

The goal of this workshop is to discuss how the problems of information overload and overchoice -- in our opinion two of the most relevant problems in information technology for the next few decades -- can be solved. In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) we have to handle incoming notifications from all our devices. Together with developments in smart city environments or with smart mobility the information overload will grow. In this workshop we want to focus on a larger understanding of the different roles notifications can play in a wide variety of computing environments including the office, the home, in cars, and other smart environments.
