It was a great opportunity for me to attend the UbiComp conference held in London. Several researchers within the field of ubiquitous computing and human-computer interaction attended the workshops held in conjunction with the main conference. I presented our paper in a workshop called WellComp on the design and formative evaluation of the UbiCAT applications, which I have developed and studied recently as a part of my PhD project.

The questions raised by some of the researchers at the end of my presentation brought interesting discussions. Several works were presented as a paper or poster in this workshop by researchers from several universities on computing for well-being. 

During the main conference, I presented a demo of the UbiCAT applications using Fitbit smartwatches provided for the conference attendees to try. I received several constructive feedbacks and possibilities to collaborate with other institutions and universities. Overall, the paper sessions in Ubicomp conference presented high quality research brining inspiration to the early-stage researchers within the field of ubiquitous computing. Many thanks to TEAM and EU Horizon 2020 who funded the dissemination of my research in Ubicomp as a top-rank conference.
