UBISS 2016 (7th International UBI Summer School 2016) enrolled 68 students from 12 countries in four parallel 6-day workshops. They provided researchers, students, and industry and public sector professionals with an opportunity to gain hands on experience and insight on selected topics on the multidisciplinary fields of HCI, ubiquitous computing and urban informatics under the tutelage of distinguished experts. UBISS 2016 was co-located with the PerDis 2016 symposium, thus this time several workshops focus on pervasive displays in one way or another.

Summer school materials (program, photos, videos etc.) are available on the Materials page.
