Ubiquitous Intelligent Computing 10 Years from Now
Ubiquitous Intelligent Computing (UIC) and Internet-of-Things have brought us a vision that smart (physical, cyber, cyber-physical) things including humans and objects are pervasive and can be interconnected, inter-sensing, interacting, inter-processing, inter-understanding, and inter-serving, which is changing our world and reshaping our lives. With new technologies like wearable computing, flexible electronics, and biological-machine intelligence, many people are talking about the vision of a smart world where people and machine coexist in environments such as a smart car, smart home, smart office and smart city. There are now smart objects where everyday objects can be empowered with computing technology to become intelligent, for example, wearable devices that can track how many cups of water that you have drank everyday. But this is just the beginning. If we look at 10 years from now, what would the smart world look like and what are the missing pieces that are needed to truly enable a smart world?
How will ubiquitous intelligent computing change the world that we live today?
What will our smart lives look like?
What new technologies will emerge?
What kind of creative applications will we be using?
The UIC’15 Smart World Creative Video Contest welcomes the contribution of videos illustrating inspiring visions of future smart worlds, our smart lives, and smart human-machine applications that are grounded in today's technical reality, that make full use of your imagination and creation to demonstrate your creative ideas, designs, applications, and systems. The content within the video must be related to ubiquitous computing, smart objects and interactions, smart systems and services, smart environments and applications, personalization, social computing, and context-aware computing, and demonstrate how it can produce a great impact on the future of human life or on human life at the present. The video can demonstrate a concept within the smart world, a scenario explaining how users interact within the smart world, or even new objects or technologies that have never been dreamed of before. In order to be eligible, videos should not have been previously presented in any other formal video program in another conference. Although artistic effort is valued, we value technical and research contributions regarding your insights and ideas. Even if you do not have any artistic background or are unfamiliar with multimedia processing techniques, we encourage you to submit a video.
The UIC’15 Smart World Creative Video Contest submission should include:
a cover page including title of the video, authors of the video, affiliation, and up to 150 words abstract about the description of the video
a video up to 5 minutes: the video should not require the viewer to read the abstract
The video should adhere to these guidelines:
Video size: HD（1920×1280）, or SD（1280×720）
Video format: AVI、WMV、MOV、MP4
Provide audio descriptions of key visual content
Language in English
Video time: Up to 5 minutes
We welcome video submissions from at home and abroad, and from any academic, business, education and government circles to take part in the "Smart World Creative Video Contest ". Please submit your video in English that conforms to the following specifications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The contest will have two phases. First, videos will be evaluated primarily on the quality of content, the clarity of presentation, quality of production, creativity, attendee interest and technical and research relevance to UIC’15. Second, the accepted videos will be presented in at the conference, where each author will be given 1 minute to address the highlights of the video to be presented. Then, the conference attendees will vote for the video contest winner. The accepted video authors can submit a 1-2 page extended abstract of their presented video for inclusion in IEEE Proceedings on UIC’15.
