uMedia 2011 and the uP Protocol set

On this last weekend (3rd and 4th of july) was held the 4th International Conference on Ubi-media Computing (or just umedia) on the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Umedia accepted our paper about the uP protocol set and was represented by myself.

This was the first time that this conference took place outside Asia. There was more than 100 papers submitted and 34 were accepted, most of which were from China there was submissions from Switzerland, Germany, Taiwan, Australia, Portugal and Brazil (among others). The three keynotes presented different subjects related to each research field. Professor Timothy K. Sith, from National Central University at Taiwan, showed very interesting achievements in video forgery that associated with augmented reality places great advances in ubicomp. Professor Jo Ueyama, from University of São Paulo at Brazil, presented his achievements in using Wireless Sensors Networks in order to prevent floods. The last keynote. Claudio Pinhanez from IBM Research at Brazil, discussed about many topics related to ubicomp and defended his view of Ubiquitous Services as a different approach for ubicomp solutions.

The uP protocol set

Our paper was entitled "uP: A Lightweight Protocol for Services in Smart Spaces" and showed part of our research at the unbiquitous research group. This protocol set is part of a composite solution that involves the DSOA (Device Service Oriented Architecture) and the uOS middleware. The presentation can be seen as follows or here.
