2008-10-14 - AIS 2008 Photos and Online Proceedings

The Ambient Information Systems Workshop at Ubicomp 2008 was a great success. The proceedings are now online here, the papers are being written for the upcoming journal special issue, and everyone is back home after a pleasant trip to Korea. We hope everyone enjoyed the conference, here's one of the great pictures taken by Mario Romero of everyone. Thanks once more to our program committee, to all who submitted, to all who attended, and to all who presented and got involved in the discussions. Hope to see you all next year :-)

2008-06-03 - Website Down... and Back

Sorry all, the website was down up to a few minutes ago. There were problems with our hosting company's data-center. From their website's service page: "On Saturday, May 31st at 4:55pm CDT in our H1 data center, electrical gear shorted, creating an explosion and fire that knocked down three walls surrounding our electrical equipment room. Thankfully, no one was injured. In addition, no customer servers were damaged or lost." The issues took some time to resolve fully and hopefully we won't have any problems going forward with this, apologies for the inconvenience.
