Pradthana “Ting” Jarusriboonchai  is a doctoral student and researcher at Tampere University of Technology, Finland. She is exploring the roles of mobile technology and ubiquitous computing in social activities among co-located people.

Sus Lundgren has a background within the industry as a GUI designer, holds a PhD in interaction design and has been researching design methodology as well as interaction design of mobile interfaces during the last years. She has worked with, or supervised, the design of numerous mobile applications, most notably a serious game aimed at encouraging discussion between participants, and a complex information visualization of disaster data, aimed as a learning tool.
Thomas Olsson is a post-doc at Tampere University of Technology. He has been studying user experience and user’s expectations of various mobile and ubiquitous systems. Most recently, he has focused on enhancing co-located social interactions in the CosMo project.

Joel Fischer is a post-doc Research Fellow at theMixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham. Joel has designed, developed and evaluated both in the area of CSCW and mobile interactive systems, and studied interaction of collocated groups around mobile technology. For example, he designed and developed Automics to support co-creation of photo souvenirs of groups visiting a theme park, and mixed-reality games to study team coordination. He is particularly interested in the role of notifications and interruptions in group experiences. Recent work on mobile notification management in collocated groups describes how participants organize their social interaction around collaborative photo-taking.

Nemanja Memarovic is a research and teaching assistant at the Faculty of Informatics, University of Lugano, Switzerland. He was PC co-chair for the Community Informatics 2012 conference, a co-organizer of the SOFTec workshop at Ubicomp 2012 and 2013, “ExS 2.0” workshop at C&T 2013, PD- Apps 2014 workshop at PerCom 2014, and HCI3P workshop at DIS’14 (to be held). He was also a publicity and in-situ demo chair for PerDis 2012 and Web chair for Ubicomp 2013. He is an active PC member of the International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (2012, 2013) and ICWSM-14.

Stuart Reeves is EPSRC Senior Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham, where he is a member of the Mixed Reality Lab. He is primarily interested in the study of interactive technologies situated in public and semi-public settings, and their design. In his work he has been involved in developing, deploying and evaluating interaction in a variety of settings such as museums and galleries, crowded urban locations, and artistic or performance events taking place anywhere from city streets to dedicated venues. Much of this work has focused on the roles of spectators, bystanders and audiences and is documented in his book Designing Interfaces in Public Settings, published by Springer in 2011.

Paweł Woźniak is a doctoral student in the t2i interaction lab, Chalmers University of Technology. His research explores how data affects everyday interactions and how users can generate, explore and understand datasets in meaningful ways.

Olof Torgersson holds a PhD in computer science and works as a lecturer in interaction design at University of Gothenburg where he is a part of the Mobile Touch Group. Olof’s current research is focused on the design and use of mobile touch interfaces in various contexts, like development of apps to support social and emotional training in special education schools. Previously he has among other things been involved in work on developing tools to support virtual communities of practice in the area of medicine.
