PerU 2007
Mit dem rasanten Entwicklungsfortschritt hochmobiler Netzwerktechnologien und Geräte eröffnen sich neuartige Perspektiven für verschiedenste Anwendungsgebiete. Zukünftige Interaktionsformen werden neben klassischen Arbeitsplatzrechnern und Notebooks auch andere Infrastrukturen umfassen. In Verbindung mit dem durch proaktive, kontextorientierte Dienste erzielbaren Mehrwert tritt die Technik in den Hintergrund zurück und unterstützt zugleich den Nutzer auf vielfältige Weise durch mehr Komfort und Transparenz in seinen täglichen Handlungen. Pervasive Computing ist eine wichtige Schlüsseltechnologie, die Aus- und Weiterbildungseinrichtungen nicht nur im akademischen Umfeld optimieren und modernisieren wird. Eine Pervasive University stellt somit die konsequente Weiterentwicklung des Konzepts der Notebook University dar.
