Wednesday 5 February 2003

A one day workshop
in conjunction with Australasian Computer Science Week
Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide, South Australia
4-7th February, 2003

Keynote Speaker: Tom Furness, HitLab, Seattle and Christchurch.

Workshop program - schedule for the day

The workshop is associated with the AUIC Australasian User Interface Conference which is part of ACSW.

The scope of the workshop includes

The growing availability of very small, lightweight, easily networked computing and sensing devices has led to an explosion of interest in ubiquitous, wearable, pervasive, context-aware computing (and, in a healthy sign of intellectual fervor, no agreement on what to call the field).

The number and diversity of small research groups in Australia and New Zealand calls for a collaborative and exploratory multi-disciplinary workshop which can fruitfully bring together these groups to share their results, their plans, and their visions - utopias, anarchies, and nightmares alike.

Submissions

The workshop is expected to include conventional papers (describing research, industry developments, or experience) and technology demonstrations.

Submissions of original papers up to 10 pages long will be accepted in Postscript, PDF or Microsoft Word by Friday 13 September.
Papers must conform to the formatting and copyright guidelines for the series Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology at http://www.jrpit.flinders.edu.au/CRPIT.html.
Sample formats are available for Word (RTF) and LaTeX (example document and style file)

Proposals for technology demonstrations should be made by email to the same address as for papers.

Submission details

Submissions should be sent as attachments to email to wicapuc@cs.anu.edu.au. The email must state the contact details (email and phone) for a primary author.

Review and publication

Papers will be reviewed by two members of the program committee and judged on originality, significance, correctness, clarity. Authors should bear in mind the breadth of the backgrounds of workshop participants.

The workshop proceedings will be published through the Australian Computer Society, in its Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology series. It is expected that they will then be made available through the ACM Digital Library.

Papers may not be published unless an author attends the workshop.

Further Information

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Australasian Computer Science Week, in Adelaide, South Australia.
Registration for any one of the conferences in the week will allow attendance at the workshop. One day registration for the workshop will also be available.
