Mobile Bristol, a research project at HP Labs in Bristol (UK) is one of three projects that are "short-listed" in the Innovative Project of the Year category in the prestigious Computing Awards for Excellence 2004 competition. The annual competition is organized by Computing magazine, one of the most authoritative IT publications in Europe.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on October 27.

Mobile Bristol is a joint project founded by HP Labs, Bristol University and the Appliance Studio. Its aim is to provide an experimental test-bed for technology and user research in pervasive mobile media. The vision of the test-bed is to provide a digital canvas over the city onto which rich, situated digital experiences can be delivered and new commercial ventures can be explored.

Mobile Bristol projects have included what is believed to be the world's first global positioning system "radio play"' recreating the 1831 Queen's Square riot in Bristol which erupted after a political reform bill was defeated in Parliament.
