Workshop on Smart Spaces

Well-designed spaces can enhance the quality and effectiveness of our communications, especially when those spaces are supported by smart systems. This workshop is the third in a series that examines the potential impact of technology on communication in spaces ascribed as smart. The first two workshops were run as an e-Science Institute Theme, and focused mainly on the productive exploitation of smart meeting spaces. The third workshop is under the auspices of e-Research South, and will explore smarter systems for managing research, and research meetings in particular.

Short contributions are welcome: the draft agenda allows 20 minutes for each presentation, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. There will also be a longer session, comprising facilitated discussion, evaluation, and review. During the evening, at the same site, there will be a very special concert exploiting smart spaces to link up Bournemouth, Stanford and Belfast Universities.

Contributors should aim to cover one or more of the following topic areas:

(1) Using smart systems to improve information exchange
(2) Coping with increasing amounts of data as processes, disciplines, and communication methods change
(3) Managing research in the wild
(4) Improving the quality of our experiences in the spaces we are in
(5) Exploiting links in research management
(6) Adapting to individual needs in research meetings

The workshop is expected to start with coffee at 9am for a 9:30 start. The end time of the formal workshop talks will be 17:00, followed by a light dinner and the concert which will start at about 7:30 pm.
