2nd International Workshop on Smart & Ambient Notification and Attention Management September 11 or 12, 2017 in Maui, Hawaii, USA in conjunction with ACM UbiComp/ISWC 2017 https://projects.hcilab.org/ubittention2017/ June 9, 2017 (Submission deadline) June 30, 2017 (Notification deadline) July 7, 2017
Another new arrivals for our projects. Among the new devices are various Arduino boards including the Arduino Yun and Arduino Due. Additionally we are also equipped now with some audio transducers and a Makey Makey controller to connect the world around
Der WDR hat gestern einen Beitrag zu unserer mobilen Applikation AppDetox gezeigt: Detox-App gegen Handysucht (WDR Lokalzeit aus Köln, 15.09.2016, Verfügbar bis 22.09.2016) Weitere Beiträge zu unserem Projekt gibt es in verschiedenen anderen Medien: http://www1.wdr.de/nachrichten/rheinland/app-gegen-smartphonesucht-gummersbach-100.html http://www.rundschau-online.de/region/oberberg/gummersbach/smartphone-sucht-th-koeln-professor-stellt-handy-app-gegen-die-sucht-vor-24744772 http://www.ksta.de/region/oberberg-ks/smartphone-sucht-th-koeln-professor-stellt-handy-app-gegen-die-sucht-vor-24744772 http://www.rundschau-online.de/region/oberberg/gummersbach/smartphone-sucht-th-koeln-professor-stellt-handy-app-gegen-die-sucht-vor-24744772 http://www.oberberg-aktuell.de/index.php?id=70&tx_ttnews%5Btt_news%5D=183327&cHash=94f42c66d5 http://www.oberberg-nachrichten.de/too-much-twitter-is-bad-for-you-20160915.html
Users of digital devices are increasingly confronted with a tremendous amount of notifications that appear on multiple devices and screens in their environment, such as at smart homes, smart offices, smart cities, and smart mobile environments. It becomes obvious that intelligent attention management systems and alternative, for example ambient, representations of incoming notifications are needed.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss how the problems of information overload and overchoice can be solved. In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) we have to handle incoming notifications from all our devices, and together with developments in smart city environments or with smart mobility the information overload will grow. In this workshop we want to focus on a larger understanding of the different roles notifications can play in a wide variety of computing environments including the office, the home, in cars, and other smart environments.
We solicit original, unpublished, technical papers in the areas relevant to the above topics, including, but not limited to: understanding mobile information needs, mobile notifications, mobile attention behavior, detection/prediction of availability and attention, detection/prediction of information perception, information overload, multimodal interaction with focus on attention optimization, interaction across devices, multi-device interaction, frameworks and tools for the development of smart attention systems, ambient notifications.
These little guys just arrived at our lab. The ESP8266 looks promising for IoT projects. Let us know if you are interested in doing some tests or if you have some experience working with this device.
Some new arrivals for projects related to the Internet of Things. Among those are the new Raspberry Pi 3 (now with WiFi and BLE on board), Arduino Yun, some Photons, and some interesting sensors like for temperature, distance, buttons, rotary
While playing around with MQTT and testing applications it is always helpful to have a MQTT broker at hand. A public MQTT broker enables easy setups without setting up your own MQTT broker. We compiled a list of available brokers that can easily be
