WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENTS:
=======================
The "Modern Mobile Scenario" workshop (W14,
http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2006/conference_program/workshops/#w14) is
the only UbiComp workshop with open registration. This two-day workshop
will give attendees hands on experience in building applications than
span mobile phones and back end servers, a combination that underlies
many modern ubiquitous computing applications. Attendees will be guided
through a series of programming exercises on their own laptops and
mobile phones using Max/MSP/Jitter and access privileges to a server.
The technical core of the workshop will be introduced through case
studies and examples, a genealogy of ubiquitous intersections,
techniques of concept and application. Register with the regular
registration page at 

https://sweb.nacs.uci.edu/ubicomp/registration.php.

It's the last chance to review for the Ubicomp open session this  week.  
Any members of the community can take part by registering on the open 
session wiki, and entering their reviews. The shortlist of papers will be

shortlist.

PARTICIPATORY DEMONSTRATIONS AT UBICOMP'06:
===========================================

1 - "WHODOUBI" DEMO AND STUDY

Would you be willing to try a "microlearning" application designed to help
you learn and remember names and faces of people in the UbiComp field?

WHODOUBI is a software application for the PC and mobile phone, designed to
be used in brief interactions as the conference approaches. It is both a
UbiComp demo and ongoing experiment. We will be collecting usage data and
presenting anonymized results at the conference.

We would like to seed the application with photos and names of members of
the UbiComp community. If you would like to help your fellow attendees
recognize you at the conference, please visit the demo web site to upload
your photo:

Look for our August announcement to get the software for your PC and/or
mobile phone.


2 - UBIQUITOUS COMMUNITY ASSIST SYSTEM

We demonstrated a combined system consisting of a social networking  
service(SNS) and onsite system for UbiComp2005 last year.
URL: http://www.ubicomp-support.org/ubicomp2005/
This system, consisting of web support systems and onsite support
systems, works to assist the creation and growth of communities of
attendees and the conference management via local committee.

We will present a new version of "Ubiquitous Community Assist System"
at the Ubicomp2006 Demo Session this year.
The web system will be operating from the middle of August gradually
upgrading itself until the conference.
URL: http://ubico-assist.org/

This time, we also invite Ubicomp2006 demonstrators and attendees
to join us and develop an allied system, sharing interaction
information among all the sub-systems. Please feel free to contact us
for further information. We look forward to hearing from you.
