Description

UK-UbiNet is an EPSRC funded network of research in the U.K. in the area of Ubiquitous Computing. One of the main means of exchanging information in UK-UbiNet will be workshops and conferences. The aim is to make these conferences as open and as inclusive as possible in order to foster growth of the research community. The community covers many aspects of research into ubiquitous computing, including networks, sensors, distributed systems, interaction, social factors, security and theory.

This 2nd workshop aims to examine an issues and research in security, trust, privacy and theory in ubiquitous computing. It will provide an overview of research in these areas within the UK, and support collaboration between different groups in the research community.

This workshop follows a successful and wide ranging workshop in September 2003. After this workshop it was felt that the issues of theory, security etc. cut across the concerns of researchers in design, middleware, sensors, context awareness, networking etc. and that a second workshop could provide benefit to the community by focusing on these.

The workshop will be held over three days (afternoon on 5th - morning on 7th May 2004) at the University of Cambridge. The programme will consist of eight sessions covering a series of topics. Each session will open with an invited overview by a leading researcher in the field, followed by one or two selected presentations describing research projects in this area. These presentations will describe both research visions and actual experience and the sessions will be completed with a panel discussion. There will also be plenty of time for debate and networking.

Registration is now closed. Space is limited and registration closes at 10am Wednesday 28th April, so please book as soon as possible.

Programme

Below is the programme for the workshop. Each session will consist of an overview of the area, one or two presentations describing projects in this area and a discussion.
