for the 2nd International Workshop
SMART UNIVERSITY 2014 (http://smartuni2014.workshop.hm <http://smartuni2014.workshop.hm/>)

Friday, 14 November 2014, University of West London, Ealing, UK

We cordially invite you to participate in the 2nd international 
workshop Smart University at the University of West London.

Sharing data and information and providing transparency are a basis 
for innovation and academic growth. Linking personal experience to 
group and university-wide experience helps develop an evidence-based 
view on the organisation. Sensors can, for example, easily track 
temperature, humidity, and noise level in and outside the classroom; 
they can also help automatically determine actual class size. In addition, 
mobile sensing solutions can enhance social contexts and enable social 
media, especially offline interactions mediated by mobile phones or 
specialised sensors.

In this second workshop of the series we want to further explore 
the possibilities of acquiring and using contextual data. 

The main goal of the Smart University workshop series is to provide 
a forum for the discussion of trends, research issues and practical 
experiences. Ideally the workshop is able to forge shared goals 
and benefit from shared experiences. In addition to presentations 
this workshop will offer organised and open spaces for targeted 

A highlight of this year's workshop will be an invited talk from 
industry. Federico Montella (HLM architects, London) will give a 
talk on thermal comfort in Higher Education buildings. Federico 
studied Architectural Engineering at the Politecnico of Torino and 
at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He has worked in 
Italy as a town planner and later attained an MSc in Sustainable 
Environmental Design at the AA. He has since then worked in 
London as a sustainability consultant for Sheppard Robson and 
HLM developing an expertise in low energy housing, education 
and masterplanning.
