Finland TUT-KEIO SFC Workshop

on Ubiquitous and Multimedia Systems
for Environmental, Social and Cross-cultural Computing

April 18th, 2012, KEIO SFC, JAPAN



This seminar is the opportunity to address world-wide research issues for the exchange of scientific and industrial aspects and experiences achieved in multimedia data managements, ubiquitous computing, and other related disciplines. The main topics of this seminar target the themes in the interdisciplinary domain between multimedia information modelling, multimedia systems, and ubiquitous computing technologies for environmental and social sciences.

This seminar focuses on promising integration between multimedia information services and ubiquitous computing in regard to integrated system architectures, media-data analysis, community-based media data-creation, user-generated multimedia content, mobile computing, new sensing device technologies. To this end, much attention is paid also to various applications including environmental computing, social computing and cross-cultural computing. For construction of the integrated systems of multimedia information services and ubiquitous computing, further innovative technologies are expected. This seminar will discuss opportunities for explorations of significant research and development.
