  • May 2018: Interested in attention management in ubiquitous computing, but not sure where to start from? Build a strong background and get some research ideas from our latest contribution (written in collaboration with Kassel University, Germany, and to be published by ACM IMWUT).

  • April 2018: Thanks to the COST Action CA15121 I have spent some time in London working with the UCL ExCites group on analysing HCI issues in mobile data collection applications targeting users in rural developing regions. Slides from my presentation given at the Workshop on lessons learned from volunteers’ interactions with geographic citizen science applications (London, April'18) can be found here.

  • January 2018: We are releasing our MONROE-RICERCANDO network data analysis toolkit. Check out MONROE project and then download Orange data mining toolkit, install MONROE analytics add-on, and start mining!
