Open Session
You are invited to contribute to the

       UbiComp Open Session

       @ UbiComp 2006, Orange County, California

Note: Suggested deadline June 16 (this Friday!)

Do you have something you want to say about ubiquitous computing? Do
you want to say it at the premiere international conference in the
field? We invite you to submit your work and ideas to a new type of
track at the UbiComp 2006 conference - the UbiComp Open Session.

The UbiComp Open Session welcomes controversial ideas, novel
prototypes, failed but valuable user studies, bold experiments, and
anything else that can give a fresh perspective on ubiquitous
computing, ambient intelligence, information appliances, smart
artefacts and mobile applications. We particularly invite submissions
that explore technical or practical limitations in current ubicomp
technologies; that introduce promising, although currently non-
viable, ubicomp technologies; that critique the current state of
ubicomp, or assumptions in the field; and that explore topics outside
current discussion in the field.

The UbiComp conference is the leading venue to present results in
ubiquitous computing. It is also highly competitive, in particular
for paper presentations. Therefore we will experiment with a new form
of submission and review process, where everything is completely
open. We will use a novel on-line reviewing system, from which the
chairs will select approximately six submissions to be presented in a
high-profile session at UbiComp 2006.

The UbiComp Open Session is:

* Open format: everything can be submitted, everything will be
* Open reviewing: reviews and discussions will take place publicly on-
line and non-anonymously
* Open presentations: traditional paper presentations are fully
acceptable, but if you want to build a system from scratch, perform a
stand-up comedy routine, run a live demo, organize an audience
participation event, or anything else, feel free!
* Open for business: come and join us at UbiComp 2006!

To contribute to the open session, you must also take part in the
review process by providing at least three reviews of other
submissions. In addition to this, we encourage all members of the
community to help with the reviewing process.

There are no hard deadlines but we suggest submitting by June 16 to
get mamimal exposure and feedback. See the website for more details!
