==============================================================================

1 Motivation and Objectives of the Workshop
==============================================================================

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.

2 Topics of the Workshop
==============================================================================

In line with the above, contributions to the workshop should propose applications of
applications and services in the domain of ubiquitous media centering on usability,
interaction, and intelligent interaction focused on, but not limited to ubiquitous/ambient usability:
- Ambient Intelligent Semantics & Technologies
o Vocabularies, ontologies & linked data for urban environments
o Context-data aggregation and context awareness
o Semantics of usage contexts and sensor data
o Context adaptive services
o Service interoperability
o Implementation and evaluation of urban services
o Ambient and ubiquitous devices
- Ambient Intelligent Presentation and Interaction
o Service interoperability
o Usage of ambient media for increasing application usability
o Methods and best practices for urban service design
o Usability in ubiquitous smart systems
o Ubiquitous human-computer interaction
o User experience, needs and user studies
o New smart media based user interfaces
- Emerging Ambient Services & Applications
o Smart cars, smart cities, smart urban environments
o Big data, opened data, and linked data applications
o New smart media based interfaces
o User-driven content and semantic data generation
o Smart media environments
o Unobtrusive mobile applications
o Non-screen based user interfaces
o Trust and security

3 Target Audience
==============================================================================
The target audiences to be addressed by this workshop are communities involved
in the creation of ambient intelligence systems for urban environments,
digital services, media interoperability, open data, user interaction design,
business modelling, knowledge management, etc.

As the workshop organizers are from different institutions and research perspectives,
and from academic and from industry, a high number of attendees is expected.
We expect approx. 15-25 attendees to allow a reasonable number of
working groups (see Section 4 ?Workshop Format?).

4 Workshop Format and Activities
==============================================================================

The workshop is part of a larger set of initiatives and is supported and incorporated with:
* iAMEA ? International Association of Ambient Media Ry (www.ambientmediaassociation.org)
* the Association of Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group (SIG) SIG-eMedia
(aisnet.org/group/SIG-eMedia)
* iAMEA established an open access journal and series (indexed in Scopus, and within the
Finnish publication ranking system)
o International Journal on Information Systems and Management in Creative eMedia
o International Series on Information Systems and Management in Creative eMedia

The workshop will be a full-day workshop grouped into several sessions. We allow the
submission of papers up to 10 pages which will be peer-reviewed by members of the
program committee.

After the workshop, it is planned that the results of the group work are consolidated in a
journal paper to be published in the special issue of the Springer journal on
?Multimedia Tools and Applications?. Also the authors of the best accepted papers of
SAME workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the
special issue. Respective arrangements with Springer are on the way for the
proposed workshop.

5 Submission Guidlines
==============================================================================

Please follow the submission guidlines for NordiCHI papers on: http://nordichi2014.org/submissions/papers/.
Workshop papers can be 5-10 pages long, however, they need to fulfill the submission guidelines of NordiCHI.
Please submit your papers on: http://www.ambientmediaassociation.org/Submissions/2014SAME/

NUMA 2014 - THE award for pervasive, ubiquitous, ambient technologies, media, services, user experience, concepts, and applications. We refurbished the competition for 2014 after having received over 220 competition entries over the past seven years. We want to integrate all the latest trends in the world of smart media, as we want to see incredible re-interpretations of the original notion of ubimedia, pervasive media, and ambient media. Any new fresh idea is welcome in this area! The vision of ubimedia today spreads in smart city concepts, smart cards, and smart phones - and starts to become mainstream - there are still many more exciting, seamless, and unobtrusive experiences that need to be discovered. We still seek for cutting edge tech innovations, and look for makers that single-handedly engineer fascinating new ubimedia services and devices on a shoestring budget. We welcome all ubimedia masterminds, pervasive computation enthusiasts, and ambient intelligent research!
ers to participate in writing the next chapter for the most innovative, inspiring, and sometimes slightly mad competition in ubimedia's history and seek projects, applications, services, technological solutions, concepts, or new media environment as competition entry. Note, there will be also a price sum giving to the very best three entries.

Possible themes, topics, and areas where your application could contribute to:
- smart environments (smart cars, smart houses, smart devices, smart cities)
- cyber, social, and physical computing
- human computer interaction in the era of ubiquitous computation
- smart robots, interaction with robots, and robotic applications
- new interaction devices (Google glasses, Pebble, ?)
- big data concepts for pervasive computation
- the ?quantified? self and the digital human
- sensor data, context awareness, and intelligence
- mobile phone applications, NFC technologies, and embedded systems (e.g. Arduino)
- wearable technologies, smart watches, smart glasses, and smart gadgets
- cyber physical systems (CPS)
- urban informatics and smart transportation
- security and safety of environments
- smart saving of energy, and sustainable environments
- production and industrial applications that are smart
- information systems and management in smart environments
- entertainment applications (e.g. pervasive games, ambient television, ...)
- artisic works, apps, and creative designs
- ergonomics, human-computer interaction designs, and consumer experience
- software, hardware, and middleware frameworks

NUMA is looking for your bold, irritating and mind-opening ideas, no matter if you are a student, seasoned researcher, entrepreneur or artist. Whether thesis, project or product - our only condition is: you must be able to demo it, otherwise you are out! You will have to prove your idea with a working prototype, and if you are nominated you will need to demonstrate your work during MindTrek. As we are a cross-disciplinary competition, we created the following categories, to cope with all the latest trends:

- ?NUMA-TEC? - You have been pushing the boundaries of sensors and ubiquitous computing or invented some incredible new pervasive hardware? This award focuses on advances in ?Technology?.

- ?NUMA-KERS? - You have mastered the odds of physical computing and rapid prototyping and want to expose your devices beyond the maker community? This award focuses on the community of ?Makers?.

- ?NUMA-UX? - You are an interaction, experience designer, or artist and have gone where no content has been seen before? This award focuses on the ?Experience?.

- ?NUMA-CONTENT? - You are a content creator, application developer, designer, artist, game designer, or new media developer? This award focuses on new ambient, ubiquitous, and pervasive content.

NUMA 2014 gives all of you the chance to show your work to an interdisciplinary international jury and win a the award! Winners will also be invited to become part of the great MindTrek 2014 event and community with travel costs covered.

NEW THIS YEAR: LEONARDO Galery
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Selected authors will be invited to present their visual works on a special
section in the LEONARDO Galery (http://www.leonardo.info/gallery/).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Following the success of previous events and the importance of the field of
evolutionary and biologically inspired (artificial neural network, swarm,
alife) music, sound, art and design, evomusart has become an evo* conference
with independent proceedings since 2012. Thus, evomusart 2015 is the
fourth International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired
Music, Sound, Art and Design.

The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of artistic
systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research. There is a
growing interest in the application of these techniques in fields such
as: visual art and music generation, analysis, and interpretation; sound
synthesis; architecture; video; poetry; design; and other creative tasks.

The main goal of evomusart 2015 is to bring together researchers who are
using biologically inspired computer techniques for artistic tasks, providing
the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area.

The event will be held in April, 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark,
as part of the Evo* event.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[DMANET] Mathematical Models and Methods for Energy Optimization Workshop on September 25-26, 2014

We are happy to announce that the next workshop within the EU COST-Action TD1207 on "Mathematical Optimization in the Decision Support Systems for Efficient and Robust Energy Networks (ICT)" (http://cost-td1207.zib.de/)

will be on

Mathematical Models and Methods for Energy Optimization (CWM^3EO)

at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (1111 Budapest, Műegyetem rakpart 3.) on September 25-26, 2014.

The emphasis of this COST-Action is to advance the visibility and general awareness of the strong research contributions of mathematical optimization in the field of energy production and distribution. The main aim is to enhance collaborations between experts of different branches of mathematical optimization and experts of energy systems. One of the planned tools for furthering this interaction is a Wiki for collecting and organizing the huge amount of work already done in the field. It will serve as entry point and guidance to this field for practitioners and scientists in general.


The workshop will feature plenary talks by prominent researchers in mathematical methods and their applications to energy optimization:

- Jordi Castro (Uni. Politecnica de Catalunya)
- Sandrine Charousset (EDF R&R)
- Claudia D'Ambrosio (Ecole Polytechnique)
- Laureano Escudero (Uni. Rey Juan Carlos)
- Utz-Uwe Haus (ETH Zurich)
- Carla Henriques (Uni. Coimbra)
- Martin Mevissen (IBM Research)
- Lars Schewe (Uni. Erlangen)

Contributed talks are welcome on all relevant modeling/methodological aspects of potential interest within the broader scope of energy optimization. Perspective contributions should be submitted until August 30 under the form of a short
abstract of at most one page. Authors will be notified about acceptance before
September 7.

It would be particularly appreciated if the contributing authors were available (directly, or through some collaborator) to helping in raising the Wiki to the quality standards we all wish for by fleshing out the parts of the Wiki corresponding to the argument they presented (possibly after having contributed in reshaping its general structure if such a need arises).

Participation to the worskhop (either presenting a talk or not) is free, but registration is required for logistic reasons. Further information on the workshop can be found at

http://www.math.bme.hu/CostWG2014/

We very much hope to welcome you in Budapest in September!

Yours Sincerely,

Antonio Frangioni, Boglarka G.-Tóth, and Christoph Helmberg
(CWM^3EO Program Committee, a.k.a. the ABC Team)
