CALL FOR PAPERS, EXTENDED ABSTRACTS, POSTERS, DEMONSTRATIONS,  
WORKSHOPS & TUTORIALS

We are pleased to invite you to the Academic MindTrek conference, 3rd – 
5th October 2012,
which brings together a cross-disciplinary crowd of people to 
investigate current and emerging
topics of media in the ubiquitous arena. The conference explores 
academically the emerging and
frontier-breaking applications of new media in everyday contexts of 
leisure, business and
organizational life. October 3rd is the main Academic MindTrek day. Due 
increasing popularity
of the conference, we are extending the scope of Academic MindTrek 
2012! The academic conference
features six major themes:

* Social Media
* Ambient & Ubiquitous Media
* Business & Media
* Human-Computer Interaction (new track!)
* Open Source
* Digital Games

SOCIAL MEDIA
“Get social!” Social media and Web 2.0 technologies are applied in ever 
diverse practices both
in private and public communities. Totally new business models are 
emerging, traditional
communication and expression modalities are challenged, and new 
practices are constructed
in the collaborative, interactive media space.

AMBIENT AND UBIQUITOUS MEDIA
“The medium is the message!” – This conference track focuses on the 
definition of ambient and
ubiquitous media with a cross-disciplinary viewpoint: ambient media 
between technology, art,
and content. The focus of this track is on applications, location based 
services, ubiquitous
computation, augmented reality, theory, art-works, mixed reality 
concepts, the Web 3.0, and
user experiences that make ubiquitous and ambient media tick.

MEDIA BUSINESS, MEDIA PRODUCTION AND MEDIA MANAGEMENT
Media business and media management face the challenges of the 
emergence of new forms of
digital media. This theme focuses on business studies, policies, 
practices, and organizational
structure of media firms. It discusses competition, patterns of media 
usage, advertising models,
and how traditional media can cope with the challenges coming from 
digital media focusing on
media business and media management issues.

HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION (HCI)
The wide field of HCI is to discuss issues around human computer 
interaction modalities,
consumer experience, design of computer systems, human aspects, 
universal media access,
ergonomics, communication, novel interaction modalities, privacy, 
trusted systems, interaction
theories, and sociological and psychological factors. This theme of 
devotes to several of these
aspects, and is targeted to the scientific community dealing with 
several applied and theoretical
aspects of HCI and user experience.

OPEN SOURCE
The last decade has seen a significant increase in open source 
initiatives such as open source
software, open standards, open content, open media, or even open source 
hardware. On the one
hand, the open movement has created new kinds of opportunities such as 
new business models and
development approaches. On the other hand, it has introduced new kinds 
of technical and
non-technical challenges.

DIGITAL GAMES
The culture and business of digital games is becoming increasingly 
varied. The current trends
range from novel interface innovations and digital distribution 
channels to social game dynamics
and player-generated content. The games track is open for theoretical 
works, empirical case
studies and constructive projects.

DEMONSTRATIONS
The aim is to gather demonstrations from researchers and professionals 
from the communities
related to the topics of MindTrek. The objective for the demonstrations 
is to provide a forum
for exchanging experiences, practical projects, or media demonstrators. 
The target audience
includes members of the academic community, industry, or laboratories 
who can demonstrate
the results of their research projects with a practical implementation.

ACADEMIC MINDTREK AS A CONFERENCE

In addition, special academic sessions (e.g. tutorials, demonstrations, 
workshops, and
multidisciplinary sessions) will be held parallel to the MindTrek 
business conference.
Academic speakers and authors are warmly welcome to register for the 
business conference
tracks as part of the academic conference with our special registration 
rate. The Academic
MindTrek registration includes full service such as coffees, lunches, 
and social gatherings.

The MindTrek Association hosts MindTrek as a yearly conference, where 
the Academic MindTrek
conference has been a part of this unique set of events comprising 
competitions, world famous
keynote speakers, plenary sessions, media festivals, and workshops 
since 1997. It is a meeting
place where experts and thinkers present results from their latest work 
regarding the development
of Internet, interactive media, and the information society. MindTrek 
brings together researchers
and practitioners from diverse disciplines that are involved in the 
development of media in
various fields, ranging from sociology and the economy, to technology.

The organizing committee invites you to submit original high quality 
full papers, long or short,
addressing the special theme and the topics, for presentation at the 
conference and inclusion
in the proceedings.
