Course content
Mark Weiser, known as "the father of Ubiquitous Computing", predicted the computing environment for the 21st century where computers are always connected to the network. As he asserts, however, there is one more important concept for Ubiquitous Computing called "Invisible Computing". The main purpose of this class is to comprehend how this concept has been realized with state-of-the-art technologies from the viewpoint of informatics.
Purpose of class
This class aims surveying the research on Ubiquitous Computing System in terms of "invisible computing" and comprehending how each system is put into practice with information and communication technologies.
Goals and objectives
  1. The students will be able to understand the concept and technologies of Ubiquitous Computing System.
  2. The students will be able to understand how to develop Ubiquitous Computing System.
  3. The students will be able to understand the relation between Ubiquitous Computing and Mobile Computing.

Evaluation method and criteria
Presentation and communicative ability (50%) and discussion skill (50%) are the criteria of the grade. More than 60% of the total score is needed for getting the course credit.

<Note>
Students are marked absent from the class if they are late regardless of the delay time.
If students are absent from more than one third of the total number of classes, the credit of this course cannot be given to them.
Even though students are absent from the class whatever the reason, e.g. sickness, delay of public transportation systems, forgetting to bring the student ID card, it is counted as absence.
