Center for Ubiquitous Computing

The Center for Ubiquitous Computing - UBICOMP- is located at the University of Oulu’s Linnanmaa Campus, and housed in a modern purpose-built facility. With an annual budget of €2.6 million and world-class infrastructure, the center’s mission is to conduct research on the next generation of interactive technologies. The scope of the research cuts across Ubiquitous Computing and Human-Computer Interaction, with a distinct focus on application-driven research. Our work spans the development of techniques for modelling human behaviour, augmenting physical spaces, and systems engineering to enable ubiquitous applications and services.
