LCE Monday meetings for Lent 2003

All at 16:15 in Gates FW11 unless otherwise noted.

Our meetings are open to current members of the University of Cambridge. The highlighted events are open to anyone.

Talk by Andy Hopper about his recent meeting with Tony Blair at No 10
Talk by Frank Hoffmann and James Scott: "Networked Surfaces at the LCE"

Networked Surfaces are a novel networking technology using surfaces such as desks to provide networking to devices such as PDAs, peripherals, and computers. This talk describes the prototype constructed at the LCE, and some research issues in TCP/IP and location-aware computing. The authors' experiences of hardware-oriented and partnership-oriented PhD research are briefly discussed. The talk concludes by outlining the potential for further research into the Networked Surfaces concept.
