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 
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 
The application areas range from smart cars, urban informatics, smart homes, 
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, 
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 
The primary research goal is to assess new trends for applying semantics in 
services for urban contexts and the disciplines involved in the creation of 
these services. 
The workshop organizers have extensive experiences in organizing high level 
through the non-profit International Ambient Media Association (AMEA) they 
The organizers have also established an own free open access series and journal 
the association, attracted large audiences, and disseminated the results 
high level journal special issues as e.g. Springer-Verlag?s Multimedia Tools & 

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 
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 
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 
* the Association of Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group (SIG) 
* 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 
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 
special issue. Respective arrangements with Springer are on the way for the 
proposed workshop.
