O grupo Ubicomp@Uminho é responsável pela organização da sessão em Computação Móvel e Ubíqua do INForum 2013 ( http://inforum.org.pt/INForum2013/sessoes/computacao-movel-e-ubiqua.html)
Esta sessão tem como objectivo ser o ponto de encontro de todas as pessoas que em Portugal, no mundo académico, em empresas ou outras instituições, estejam interessadas em apresentar os seus trabalhos e trocar ideias na área da computação móvel e ubíqua. É fortemente incentivada a participação de jovens investigadores e alunos de pós-graduação apresentarem o seu “work-in-progress” numa sessão com revisão por pares.
A deadline para submissão de resumos é 17 de Junho.
A chamada para submissão de artigos (CFP) está disponível em http://inforum.org.pt/INForum2013
Most display systems are making use of static definition for the
places in which they are situated. The content shown on these
displays is predefined as is the case of television broadcasting. In
this paper we present an approach that allows local display
managers, e.g., display owners, to instantiate global display web
applications on each display basis. We describe an innovative
model for content presentation that takes into consideration both
the display environmental data, e.g., sensors and user interactions,
and app specific configuration. This approach enables the content
being shown to be highly personalized, thus reflecting the
dynamic and situated behavior of global display web apps.

Ambient intelligence (AmI) proclaims that physical environments will be embed- ded with some type of computing capabilities that will make our actions in those environments safer, more eﬃcient, more informed, or simply more enticing.
Our objective is to report on our ﬁndings in regard to the system support oﬀered for building Ambient Intelligence environments and applications. The evaluation of system support for Ambient Intelligence is very diﬃcult because we cannot ﬁnd globally accepted metrics and because it is very diﬃcult to evaluate large-scale and long- term Ambient Intelligence environments in real contexts. We thus focus on building a few evaluation deployments and report the main challenges we have faced on integrating Ambient Intelligence underlying computing infrastructure and physical spaces, mapping to patterns of situated in- teraction in everyday life. We have also adopted a Crowdsourced system software development model. With this model we want to provide an open and ﬂexible infrastructure as system support for Ambient Intelli- gence that are based on a balanced combination between global services and situated devices: global services provide functionality that can be relevant anywhere, thus obviating the need to create dedicated services on a case-by-case basis.

Nuno Vasco Lopes received the “Best Student Paper Award” during the 18th International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks (SoftCom 2010).
His work find echo in the written media ( links available at end of the post) and he is also granting an interview to Antena 1, one of the country’s main radio stations (we’ll be providing the sharp time of it or its podcast).
A Micro-Mobility Solution for Supporting QoS in Global Mobility is the title of the recognized publication, which proposes a Quality of Service (Qos) micro-mobility solution able to provide QoS support for global mobility.
