The Knowledge & Data Engineering Group of the University of Kassel will host the next EveryAware meeting.
The meeting will start from Wednesday 20th March and will finish on Friday 22nd March.
The main topics will be the state of development of the project and the path for the next year and the planning of the next case studies.
Stay tuned for more info!
The game, developed on the XTribe platform, is the virtual counterpart of the EveryAware project. It allows you to see on a map information about traffic, your task being to draw a driving route between two points, trying to optimise both distance and time (traffic exposure).
The game is currently set in Turin, Rome, London and Dublin. By playing it, you can discover the traffic map of your city and alternative routes you were not aware of. Additionally, your response to traffic will be helping us gain insights on human behaviour and impact of exposure to environmental information. There are two versions of the game, single-player, where you compete against the Google Directions engine, and two-player, where you can play with a friend. Defeating your adversary can be a very difficult and engaging task. You can post your score to your Facebook timeline, to show your friends how well you’ve done, and engage them in an activity which is both fun and useful for research.
Enjoy and good luck!

Vittorio Loreto gave a plenary talk on “Participation, awareness and learning” at the first Global Systems Science conference, November 8–10, 2012 Brussels, Belgium.
The aim of the Conference was that of contributing to the development of Global Systems Science (GSS). The study of problems as diverse as global climate change and global financial crises is currently converging towards a new kind of research – Global Systems Science.
