The module consists of two parts – a seminar and a practical project. In the beginning of this course, seminar topics are given to the participants, as well as corresponding literature to start with for their research topics in the areas of mobile computing, location-based services and m-commerce. The lectures provide introductions on giving expert talks and preparing scientific work. Main objectives of the seminar are an expert talk given by the participants and a written report. During the project, the teams will cope with creating applications on android devices and servers that will be realized from idea development, software design, implementation and testing. Besides regular courses, the expert talks of the seminar as well as the implementation part and presentations of the project will be held as a block course. The project starts with forming teams and assigning topics in the area of mobile applications. In the project block, the topics will be implemented and tested on real devices and servers. The course finishes with the presentation of the results in a speech and a written project documentation. The entire project is accompanied by tutorials on tools used for software development and documentation. Lectures and practical lessons are given in English. The module can be finished in one semester. Seminar and project is limited to 12 participants each.
