Next-generation location-based technologies: from urban crowdsourcing to the physical web
December 18-22, 2017
Tandil, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The proliferation of mobile computing has also brought rise to several other types of applications. One of the most salient ones are location-based apps and generally technologies that utilize location as an important input or output of the application. Whether games such as Pokemon Go or ads that are displayed in our devices, the use of location information has become an important aspect of almost every application regardless the device it finds itself in. In this winter school we would like to particularly focus on this aspect and introduce students to the latest advances of location-based technologies.
Thanks to ACM's contribution we are able to sponsor a limited number of students. Five students will be granted an extended scholarship that includes: registration fee, accommodation and partially funded transportation. Another five students will be granted a waiver for the registartion fee.
The deadline for applying for a scholarship dued on 18 de November 2017. However, you can still register to assist to the school with a fee of U$s100. For registering, please fill in the following Registration Form.
The school will take place at the Universidad Nacional del Centro de la Provincia de Buenos Aires (UNICEN), which is located in Tandil, Argentina (400km South of Buenos Aires)
