Truly own hand-held and wearable applied sciences might be small and unobtrusive and make allowance entry to details and computing as a rule and in such a lot condition. Complimentary, environment-based applied sciences make artifacts of our surrounding international computationally available and facilitate use of daily environments as a ubiquitous computing interface. The overseas Symposium on hand held and Ubiquitous Computing, held for the 1st time in September 1999, used to be initiated to enquire hyperlinks and synergies in those advancements, and to narrate advances in own applied sciences to these in environment-based applied sciences. The HUC ninety nine Symposium used to be organised by way of the college of Karlsruhe, particularly by way of the Telecooperation workplace (TecO) of the Institute for Telematics, in shut collaboration with ZKM Karlsruhe, which generously hosted the development in its actually inspiring middle for humanities and Media know-how. The symposium was once supported through the organization of Computing equipment (ACM) and the German computing device Society (Gesellschaft f r Informatik, GI) and held in cooperation with a couple of targeted curiosity teams of those clinical societies. HUC ninety nine attracted various paper submissions, from which the overseas programme committee chosen 23 high quality contributions for presentation on the symposium and for inclusion in those court cases. furthermore, posters have been solicited to supply an outlet for novel principles and late-breaking effects; chosen posters also are incorporated with those court cases. The technical programme used to be additional complemented through 4 invited keynote addresses, and panel sessions.
