And while we’re at it: call for papers is also out for the 5th International Symposium on LBS & TeleCartography (LBS 2008), held in Salzburg, Austria in November. Excellent event with a growing community around it. This year the Symposium is extending: held at a one-year interval instead of the two-year intervals of the previous […]


Peter just pointed me to the announcement site for the First International Workshop on Trends in Pervasive and Ubiquitous Geotechnology and Geoinformation. Peter’s on the program commitee himself and, officially, I strongly support this event and encourage everyone with a research interest in mobile geoinformation systems and location based services to submit and/or attend. Secretly, […]

Ten Chapters with lots of pictures […]

Basically, the thesis takes all the work I’ve done over the last four years, putting it into a more general perspective and deriving a set […]


Once again a post on my own account: Had a really nice closing event for the Creative Histories project yesterday with an interested audience and well-behaved demo hard- and software. On the photo you can see me, showing off the coolness of our orientation-sensor-driven 3D graphics UI to the press while my colleague & friend […]
