Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing

(versão PT)

Motivation and Goals

The mobile and ubiquitous computing is an area with a noticeable impact on society, being notorious the increasing use of mobile devices (phones/smartphones, mobile computers, RFID, sensor networks, etc.) to execute new applications and to access information and services. In the recent past, new developments in the area of mobile computing and wireless networks have been extremely rapid. This technological evolution opens up new opportunities and challenges at various levels (eg., architectures, power management, middleware, interfaces or development of new services).

This session aims to be the meeting point for all people in Portugal, in the academic world, in industry or other institutions who are interested in presenting their work and exchanging ideas in the field of mobile and ubiquitous computing. It is strongly encouraged the participation of young researchers seeking constructive criticism and encouragement to their work.
