Title: Multi Modal Sensory Human Communication in the Internet Society
This talk outlines new facilities within human media spaces supporting embodied interaction between humans, animals, and computation both socially and physically, with the aim of novel interactive communication and entertainment. We aim to develop new types of human communications and entertainment environments using all the senses, including touch, taste, and smell, which can increase support for multi-person multi-modal interaction and remote presence. In this talk, we present an alternative ubiquitous computing environment based on an integrated design of real and virtual worlds. We discuss some different research prototype systems for interactive communication, culture, and play.
Welcome to CollabTech 2012!
CollabTech 2012 will be the sixth international conference on collaboration technologies. Due to marked advances in networking, computing and interaction technologies, we are at the cusp of collaboration technologies being a part of an intricate network of various types of everyday collaborative processes. The conference will provide a platform for the international collaboration technology community to showcase, discuss and deliberate on state-of-the art, emerging new technology developments and understanding the social use of these technologies to improve collaborations.
CollabTech would also like to encourage you to use this opportunity to present challenging studies, which may be at a very early stage of their system development, or their exploration of new evaluation methods, but may trigger exciting technology.
