                University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.

The Mobile and Context-aware Computing Group at UKC is
organizing an interdisciplinary conference on the use of mobile
computers, Global Positioning Systems and mobile communications
to support fieldwork. It will interest ecologists, environmental
scientists, archaeologists and other fieldworkers, and computer
scientists and engineers interested in the challenges which
fieldwork presents.

The conference will include a mixture of invited papers,
contributed papers and posters. The former will review the relevant
hardware and software technologies which can and are being used in
mobile computer applications.

Offers of papers invited

Contributed papers and posters are now sought on the use of mobile
computers, Global Positioning Systems and mobile communications to
support fieldwork. In particular, those describing field workers'
experiences of using the above technologies to support fieldwork are
particularly welcomed. Papers describing work in progress are also
welcome. Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of not more
than 1200 words for a paper and not more than 500 words for a poster.
Extended abstracts and posters will also be evaluated and selected for
presentation at the conference. Accepted abstracts will be collected
into a preliminary proceedings which will be available at the
conference. It is hoped that full papers will be published in a
proceedings of the conference. Offers are also invited from
organisations wishing to exhibit products or demonstrations.
