Workshop on Smart Spaces



Kevin L. Mills, Jean C. Scholtz, K Sollins


In July of 1999, three agencies in the US government (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology) sponsored a workshop on Smart Spaces. The intention of this workshop was to begin to build a multi-disciplinary consensus about the challenging research problems that must be solved before Ubiquitous Computing environments could be routinely deployed and used by people. This paper contains the summary of the workshop, as well as expanded position papers submitted by selected workshop attendees.
