Description

"The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it." Marc Weiser, 1991

The emergence of ubiquitous computing as a new design paradigm poses significant challenges for human-computer interaction (HCI) and interaction design. Traditionally, HCI has taken place within a constrained and well-understood domain of experience — single users sitting at desks and interacting with conventionally-designed computers employing screens, keyboards and mice for interaction.

The seminar will introduce the participants into theories behind ubiquitous computing. Therefore, several aspects of UbiComp will be presented and discussed by the participants.
