The proliferation of devices with enhanced communication and processing capabilities (e.g. mobile phones, PDAs, set-top boxes, appliances, etc.)  has given rise to a series of new technologies, changing what was known as distributed computing and then as mobile computing, and today covers under the name of ubiquitous computing (or pervasive computing). These technologies seek to create transparent environments to the user in which these devices with limited processing capability and intermittent communication cooperate in a inteligent way.

The aim of this course is to present the state of researches being carried out in the field of ubiquitous computing.

  Administrative aspects of the course

The evaluation will consist of a final exam and the presentation of the assignments. Assignments consist of a document that will be presented by the student, either in spanish or in english. The document is expected to be 3 to 5 pages length, and must include a section with the student's original ideas, criticism or some other form of personal contribution. The document format must be like standard scientific articles: title, abstract, several sections, conclusions, and a list of bibliographic references (some of them must not be URLs of web pages).
