The wide spread of mobile platforms has brought a wide range of applications for the nomadic user addressing different domains. Universities constitute an ideal environment for the creation and introduction of novel applications that can facilitate the interaction among the members of the university community. In this demo we introduce a context-aware mobile solution that addresses the communication between academic faculty members or research associates and their supervised students. Professor2Student integrates a number of tools that allow an easier and closer collaboration between supervisors or academic advisors and students building on widely adopted protocols and a context-aware middleware for the Android platform.
