The deployment teams for the UbiChallenge 2011 have arrived in Oulu, Finland to make Digifieds and FunSquare available to the public. After the initial deployment phase, services will go live on July 6th, followed by a 2 month evaluation phase. Evaluation is expected to continue throughout summer 2011 and the teams will submit their technical report to the MUM 2011 UbiChallenge track.
Prior to the deployment in Oulu, the Digifieds team has conducted a lab study on suitable interaction techniques for creating, publishing, and taking away content from public displays. Early insights have been submitted and accepted for the poster track of Pervasive 2011 in San Francisco (see Publication section).
