Ubiquitous computing environments pose complex problems for evaluation.
Evaluations can facilitate an understanding of the research issues and can
be useful in measuring progress.  However, evaluations can also focus
efforts on a more narrow aspect of the field than desirable.
In this workshop, we will discuss the pros and cons of evaluation and
discuss a number of evaluation methodologies for ubiquitous computing

Participants are asked to submit a position paper discussing a possible
evaluation strategy.  This should include suggested metrics and a rationale
for conducting the evaluation.  Prior to the workshop, the organizers will
group proposed evaluation methodologies into categories.  Selected
participants may be asked to present a methodology category for discussion
at the workshop.   Position papers should not exceed 2 pages.  They should
be e-mailed to [log in to unmask] by August 24th.

Workshop Organizers:  Jean Scholtz, Marty Herman, Sharon Laskowski, National
Institute of Standards and Technology; Asim Smailagic and Dan Siewiorek,
Carnegie Mellon University
