Dr. Nuria Oliver (, who is Scientific Director for the Multimedia Research Team at Telefonica Research in Barcelona, Spain, has kindly accepted our invitation to give a keynote speech to the workshop.
Title: Opportunities in a context-rich world
Abstract: In my talk I will give an overview of our recent research on context, covering a broad set of research areas, including mobile computing (an ethnographic study on novel opportunities for mobile contextual applications, the role of social networks on mobile information access and a mood sharing application), user modeling (context-aware recommender systems), ubiquitous computing (context at an urban scale/smart cities) and multimedia analysis.
