    Although Mark Weisers vision of "Ubiquitous Computing" has become reality today due to the wide availability of smartphones and tablets, the originally envisioned ease of interaction with these device ecologies is still lacking. This is particularly apparent when looking at data exchange and collaboration between several persons using their personal mobile devices. Even though cloud services can be used to facilitate such tasks, they usually bring their own setup barriers and raise significant privacy and security concerns.
    In this talk, I will introduce the concept of "Instant Interaction", with the aim to provide easily accessible ad-hoc interaction between multiple users, their own mobile devices, and fixed infrastructure. This interaction explicitly avoids prior exchange of account data or PINs - the only prerequisite for interaction is physical proximity. Sensor data from the devices is used to disambiguate peers and establish a secure data channel without further user interaction. Examples from my current research illustrate this concept.
