About UbiCollab project

UbiCollab (Ubiquitous Collaboration) is about supporting natural collaboration using mobile and ubiquitous computing technologies. UbiCollab provides a unique opportunity to you as a student to perform your master’s thesis in a vibrant and dynamic research and development environment. UbiCollab is a platform in constant development, and you can be part of it. UbiCollab code is provided as open source and is used in a number of national and international projects. This means you as a participant in UbiCollab will get in touch with top researchers in Europe and elsewhere. UbiCollab is being implemented in Java programming language using state-of-the-art technologies such as Android. UbiCollab is device-centric and most of our development is done on mobile devices.

UbiCollab (Ubiquitous Collaboration) is an open source project with the aim of developing a technological platform for supporting mobile and ubiquitous groups and communities. The overall goal for UbiCollab is to provide NTNU students a test bed for hands-on, real-world and world-class research in the fields of ubiquitous computing (Ubicomp) and computer supported collaborative work (CSCW). UbiCollab’s specific objectives are:

  1. To offer to NTNU students a comprehensive set of student projects with well-defined goals and deliverables.
  2. To deploy or develop a set of technologies in order to support NTNU students in performing and evaluating research in the fields of Ubicomp and CSCW.
  3. To encourage NTNU students to perform world-class research in the fields of Ubicomp and CSCW, and to publish their research in top journals and conferences.

UbiCollab is developed collaboratively by IDI-NTNU and SNTEF ICT group for social inclusion technologies. UbiCollab is open source (Apache 2.0) and participation from anyone is highly appreciated! See www.ubicollab.org.
