  • June 2019: Our paper "FutureWare: Designing a Middleware for Anticipatory Mobile Computing" coauthored by Abhinav Mehrotra and Mirco Musolesi from UCL, has been accepted to IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (online soon!)

  • May 2019: Work with Jhihoon Joo, a visiting student from KNU, Korea, is featured in May's list of Top Publications involving Slovenian researchers.

  • Dec 2018: Congratulations to Jasna Urbančič for defending her MS thesis on transport mode detection using low-resource mobile sensing. A part of Jasna's work was published at the Slovenian Conference on Data Mining and Data Warehouses in Ljubljana [video presentation].

  • Oct 2018: Congratulations to Tilen Matkovič for defending his MS thesis on wireless cognitive load inference. You can read more about his work in our UbitTention workshop paper.

  • Oct 2018: I will be giving a keynote talk at Ubiquitous Personal Assistence Workshop (collocated with UbiComp in Singapore, October 2018) on "Unobtrusive Cognitive Load Inference for Ubiquitous Computing Adaptation".

  • 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.
