1st International ICST Conference on User Centric Media - UCMedia 2009

Venice, 9-11 December 2009


This conference seeks to improve our understanding of the changing landscape of media. It has a particular focus on forms of media that are user centered and on the way they will be delivered over a Future Media Internet. The UCMedia conference will support inventive and creative practices in the arts, in science, in engineering and in business by encouraging publications that will help us to understand, to predict and to enable trends in media that are related to:

  • overwhelming volumes of content
  • user generated content

  • changing distribution mechanisms

  • changing representations of media

Users are always central to media; as creators, as consumers, as learners or as the public whose buying habits have, for generations, been influenced by advertisers (and so paid for the creation and distribution of media). For this reason, this conference particularly encourages a consideration of media that is intrinsically user-centered. The conference seeks contributions that relate to all portions of the different media value chains, from creatives, through service providers, technology enablers and users/consumers.

The conference will encourage submission of full papers, of interest to a plenary audience, as well as papers that can be presented as posters and of workshops. This we hope will encourage the publication of content on more tightly focused topics.
