Overview

 

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Marta Kwiatkowska, Professor Tom Rodden and Professor Vladimiro Sassone

The convergence of wireless networks with new sensing technologies and devices has started to embed computers into our everyday life. This meeting will consider this shift to 'Ubiquitous Computing' as an interdisciplinary grand challenge affecting all aspects of computer science that has massive implications for how we might reason about, build and experience computer systems with considerable issues for society.

Speakers and chairs include: Professor Ozalp Babaoglu, Professor Gaetano Borriello, Professor Jon Crowcroft, Professor Sir Ara Darzi, Professor Rocco de Nicola, Mr Adam Greenfield, Professor Wendy Hall, Professor Tom Henzinger, Professor Andy Hopper FRS, Professor Anupam Joshi, Professor Marta Kwiatkowska, Professor Gary Marsden, Professor Margaret Martonosi, Professor Robin Milner FRS, Professor Morgens Nielsen, Professor Ronald Rivest, Professor Tom Rodden, Professor Timothy Roscoe, Professor Vladimiro Sassone, Professor Morris Sloman, Professor Jeannette Wing and Professor Jonathan Zittrain.

Papers from this meeting were published in a special issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
