pages are focussed at describing the UK-Ubinet, providing updates and
links to interesting events in the area of Ubiquitous Computing.
UK-UbiNet brings together academic researchers within the UK
to build a multi-disciplinary community covering the broad aspects of
ubiquitous computing, including the technology, human factors and
socio-economic issues. Although the emphasis is on a network of
academic researchers, we welcome involvement from industry and will
work closely with the DTI Next Wave Technologies initiative to involve
industry and to have joint workshops.
UK-UbiNet is also supporting the activities of the UKCRC Grand
Challenge in Ubiquitous Computing (UbicompGC).
This is now a single activity which combines both the Science (theory)
with the Engineering (systems) aspects of GC2 and GC4.
A description of UK-UbiNet objectives, research issues and
the management aspects of the network can be found here. This website is maintained and updated
regularly, so please keep revisiting this website for updates on
various events planned by the UK-UbiNet in particular and the
ubiquitous computing research community in general. You will find
details of such events on the EVENTS page.
