Title：Mobile Life: A research overview
Abstract：For the last ten years, Mobile Life–a Stockholm based research centre–has brought together designers, computer scientists and social scientists to develop the latest in mobile and ubiquitous technology. Funded by industry (including Microsoft, IKEA, Nokia & ABB), academia and the city of Stockholm since 2007, the centre has published over one thousand academic papers, winning best paper awards at all major Human–Computer Interaction conferences, growing three spinout companies, as well as serving as the launch point for the career of numerous PhD students and researchers. As the 10 year life of the centre draws to a close, Professor Barry Brown (University of Stockholm) will present some of Mobile Life’ s best and most recognised research. He will discuss his own work and that of the other directors of the centre – Professors Kristina Höök, Annika Waern, Oskar Juhlin, Lars Erik Holmquist.
