                               at Ubicomp 2001
                         September 30 - October 2, 2001
                                Atlanta, Georgia

Important Dates

  * 13 August 2001 (Papers Due)
  * 27 August 2001 (Notification of Acceptance)

Many ubicomp applications make use of location information sensed
using diverse
sensors. To be able to relate locations, compute with them, or present
information to the user, applications use a location model, although
it is
often implicit. The aim of this workshop is to understand what
location models
are used, how they are related, and identify requirements for a
location model for ubiquitous computing.

This workshop intends at providing a forum for designers, developers
and users
of location models to exchange experiences and inspire their own work.
Questions from disciplines other than computer science that contribute
to the
theme of location modeling (e.g., cognition of place, urban planning)
also be discussed. Participants from these disciplines will be welcome
to the
workshop. The final goal of the workshop is to develop an
understanding of how
to model location information.

The workshop organizers will select participants based on a review of
position papers, taking into account scientific quality and relation
to the
workshop topics. A submission has a limit of 6 pages. Papers should be
electronically (PDF format) to [log in to unmask] The workshop
proceedings will
be published as a technical report. Participants will be invited to
full papers for publication in a special issue of a major journal.
Also, the
workshop outcomes will be reported in the SIGCHI Bulletin.
