Ivan Elhart

Ivan is a PhD student and research assistant at the Faculty of Informatics, University of Lugano, Switzerland. His current research interests include context sensing and content presentation on public displays, in particular opportunities in developing new forms of distributed control over application and content scheduling in pervasive public display networks.

Nemanja Memarovic

Nemanja is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. His current research centers on social and community interactions in public spaces, in particular opportunities for intra- and inter-community interaction through networked public displays.

Timo Ojala

Timo is professor of computer science at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Oulu, where he leads the Urban Computing and Cultures research group and the UBI (UrBan Interactions) research program. He received his M.Sc. (with honors) and Dr.Tech. degrees in 1992 and 1997, respectively, from the University of Oulu, Finland. The UBI research program has built a prototype of future ubiquitous city at downtown Oulu, including the UBI-hotspots, a network of 18 interactive public displays around Oulu. He has authored about 150 papers on ubiquitous computing, HCI, mobile multimedia, networking and computer vision, which have attracted about 12500 citations. He has served as the founding co- chair of the International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM 2002), the general chair of MUM 2007 conference and in the program committees of many international conferences and workshops, including UbiComp 2013 and 2014.
