LBS Summer School: "Mobile and Location Based Services" in Salzburg, Austria

The International Summer School on Mobile and Location Based Services (LBS) is hosted by Salzburg University's Centre for Geoinformatics (Z_GIS).

LBS are used to innovate business and safety but also to disclose original ideas in community services, urban planning or new media. Large companies such as Nokia or Google offer LBS solutions to their professional or consumer customers. Organisations such as BP or FedEx use location aware applications for safety and business efficiency.

The Summer School addresses foundations, technology and adoption issues in location-aware solutions. It includes user and business demands, case studies, technical architectures, RFID and non-traditional location technologies, as well as the ethical dimension of LBS together with implications for privacy and labour relations.

Applications are accepted until May 15, 2008. Due to limited places we strongly recommend an early registration! For registration and further details please visit our summer school website!
