8th Int'l Workshop Multimedia Metadata Management and Retrieval 7–9 May 2008 Klagenfurt, Austria

In times of ubiquitous Internet access, multimedia systems using networks gain more importance. Multimedia systems support features beyond the download and display of videos and images: adaptation of data and metadata, caching and distribution of multimedia content and metadata over different network types, and user integration. The focus of the special session is multimedia metadata. Aspects include but are not limited to means of delivery, adaptation, storage, creation, production, and consumption.

5th Int'l Conf. Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing 23–25 June 2008 Oslo, Norway

Slated as "building smart worlds in real and cyber spaces," conference participants will explore ubiquitous computers, networks, and information and how they are paving a road toward a smart world in which computational intelligence is distributed throughout the physical environment to provide trustworthy and relevant services. Ubiquitous intelligence will change the computing landscape because it will enable development of new breeds of applications and systems. By embedding digital intelligence in everyday objects, our workplaces, our homes, and even ourselves, many tasks and processes could be simplified and made more efficient, safer, and enjoyable.
