Final Call for Papers Submission Deadline: April 02, 2007
I-MEDIA 07 FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NEW MEDIA TECHNOLOGY 5-7 September 2007 Graz, Austria
Media technologies are currently facing challenges and opportunities arising from a number of trends: Under the Web 2.0 umbrella, social aspects of software are gaining importance, and a new focus on simplicity in user interface design is taking hold. New display devices (e.g. e-paper) and client software (e.g. geo-browsers) revolutionize the production and consumption of media products such as newspapers.
At the same time, semantic technologies are maturing to the point where their broad adoption becomes almost inevitable. In conjunction with new media, semantic technologies and social software catalyze virtual communities by matching people of similar interests, browsing behavior, or geographic location.
Acknowledging these fundamental changes, I-MEDIA will bring together traditional media companies, new media start-ups and academics to shape the future of media technology, and to make the most of distributed text, audio and video resources.
Possible topics for I-MEDIA 07 paper submissions include but are not limited to:
-- Web 2.0 Applications for Content Providers -- Business Models for New Media -- Social Media Platforms -- User-Generated Content -- Semantic Technologies for New Media Technology -- Cross-Media Content Production and Delivery -- Cross-Media Search and Retrieval -- Media Provision over the Internet Protocol -- New Media Services -- Mobile and Wearable Computing -- Innovative Media Devices -- Innovative User Interfaces for Media Devices -- The Geospatial Web -- Marketing of Products and Services via New Media -- Societal Implications of New Media
Beginning in 2007, I-MEDIA will complement I-KNOW (www.i-know.at), the largest conference on knowledge management of its kind in Europe. This extension reflects the increasing importance and convergence of knowledge management and new media technologies. This lets participants of both conferences benefit from the synergies of both events, in particular from the presence of different yet related expertise at the same place and time.
