• Proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on Semantic Ambient Media Experiences (SAME 2017): Artificial Intelligence MEETS Virtual and Augmented Worlds (AIVR) - in conjunction with SIGGRAPH Asia
    No 2017/2 (2017)

    The objective of this workshop was to invite scholars and practitioners to discuss synergies between virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR) and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The aim was to gather a cross-disciplinary team of experts with a background in computer science, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), psychology/cognitive sciences, culture/communication studies, design and art to develop this fascinating intersection. The aspects to discuss range from userexperience, technologies applications, methods, cultural implications, communication theories, to artistic approaches. The detailed workshop description can be found in [1] and on the workshop website on http://aivr.ambientmediaassociation.org.

    Ambient (aka pervasive, ubiquitous) media environments offer a plethora of context data as well as opportunities for context-related content production and consumption. They are the perfect environments for providing users with highly contextualized data-driven services and data-driven visual and additive content. To build such ambient media environments, semantics play an essential role to deal with a seamless integration of the urban context as well as the digital services to be provided. The application areas range from smart cars, urban informatics, smart homes, ambient assisted living, smart media environments, and new interaction devices. We aim to bring together communities involved in different semantic applications needed for the creation of ambient media environments, like: digital services, media interoperability, open data, user interfaces, human-computer interaction, user-centred and interaction design, user experience, business modelling, knowledge management, etc.

    This will allow identifying common themes between the participant's current work and research agenda, and, eventually, leading to the discovery of new insights and opportunities. The primary research goal is to assess new trends for applying semantics in digital services for urban contexts and the disciplines involved in the creation of these services. The workshop organizers have extensive experiences in organizing high level workshops through the non-profit International Ambient Media Association (AMEA) they founded. The organizers have also established an own free open access series and journal within the association, attracted large audiences, and disseminated the results through high level journal special issues as e.g. Springer-Verlag’s Multimedia Tools & Applications.

  • 2nd Workshop on (Re)Creating Lievely Cities Through Ambient Techn. in Arts, Culture, and Gastronomic Experiences
    No 2013/3 (2013)

    Digital and interactive technologies are becoming increasingly embedded in everyday lives of people around the world. Application of technologies such as real-time, context-aware, and interactive technologies; augmented and immersive realities;, social media; and location-based services has been particularly evident in urban environments where technological and sociocultural infrastructures enable easier deployment and adoption as compared to non-urban areas. There has been growing consumer demand for new forms of experiences and services enabled through these emerging technologies. We call this ambient media, as the media is embedded in the natural human living environment. This workshop focuses on ambient media services, applications, and technologies that promote people’s engagement in creating and re-creating liveliness in urban environments, particularly through arts, culture, and gastronomic experiences.

  • Proc. of the 1st Workshop on Defining a European Research Agenda on Inform. Systems and Management in eMedia Industry
    No 2013/1 (2013)

    Media and entertainment industry is the third largest industry segment for investments in information systems. And this particular industry segment is faced with tremendous challenges in terms of organizational, transformational, leadership, customer behavioral, and technological changes. One particular challenge is the transformation of the analogue media world into its digital counterpart. As of today, the successive research of business information management and systems focusing on media and entertainment industries is rather fragmented and stretches over a wide area of research islands such as social media, eCommerce, or eBusiness. To face this challenge, this workshop focuses on the definition of a European research agenda of information management and systems for media and entertainment industries and highlighting their particular needs in production, distribution, and consumption. The workshop shall gather a scientific community around the theme of business information management and systems in the larger context of media and entertainment industries. The outcome of the workshop shall be a roadmap of research challenges, and a structured approach towards information management & systems in media and entertainment industries.

    No 2013/2 (2013)

    Sustainability and sustainable urban environments are one of the goals of various research agendas and initiatives as e.g. the Regions of Climate Actions (R20). SAME 2013 devotes to the challenge, how information management and systems can support sustainable communities in their regional settings. This workshop focuses on the development of a research agenda around the wider topic of how smart media and automated systems can support the larger context of sustainability for communities with the help of information systems, social web technologies, smart media, and automated systems. The workshop defines a research agenda within this particular context, and especially devotes to the investigation of opened research issues how ubiquitous and pervasive computation can be utilized to create sustainable communities. Energy conservation and saving are one of the key-words SAME 2013 will devote its focus: sustainable cities – sustainable community – sustainable energy – sustainable culture supported by smart information systems, smart media, and fully automated systems. Smart electronics and infrastructure will be one major component in creating a green city environment. Within the scope of this workshop, the goal is to investigate smart technologies, policies, and projects that are devoting to the issue of sustainable communities to create a better living experience
