[Imageworld] Neo Ubimedia MindTrek Award – 31st August 2014 – THE competition for pervasive/ubiquitous/ambient ‘minded’…



THE award for the pervasive, ubiqutious, and ambient intelligent community
Award submission DEADLINE: 31st August 2014

4th-6th November, Tampere Finland
http://www.numa.fi, http://www.mindtrek.org

Join us on Facebook: http://ift.tt/XVeghd
In cooperation with MindTrek Association, Internatinal Ambient Media Association (iAMEA),
and the AIS SIG-eMedia

NUMA 2014 – THE award for pervasive, ubiquitous, ambient technologies, media, services, user experience, concepts, and applications. We refurbished the competition for 2014 after having received over 220 competition entries over the past seven years. We want to integrate all the latest trends in the world of smart media, as we want to see incredible re-interpretations of the original notion of ubimedia, pervasive media, and ambient media. Any new fresh idea is welcome in this area! The vision of ubimedia today spreads in smart city concepts, smart cards, and smart phones – and starts to become mainstream – there are still many more exciting, seamless, and unobtrusive experiences that need to be discovered. We still seek for cutting edge tech innovations, and look for makers that single-handedly engineer fascinating new ubimedia services and devices on a shoestring budget. We welcome all ubimedia masterminds, pervasive computation enthusiasts, and ambient intelligent researche
rs to participate in writing the next chapter for the most innovative, inspiring, and sometimes slightly mad competition in ubimedia’s history and seek projects, applications, services, technological solutions, concepts, or new media environment as competition entry. Note, there will be also a price sum giving to the very best three entries.

Possible themes, topics, and areas where your application could contribute to:
– smart environments (smart cars, smart houses, smart devices, smart cities)
– cyber, social, and physical computing
– human computer interaction in the era of ubiquitous computation
– smart robots, interaction with robots, and robotic applications
– new interaction devices (Google glasses, Pebble, ?)
– big data concepts for pervasive computation
– the ?quantified? self and the digital human
– sensor data, context awareness, and intelligence
– mobile phone applications, NFC technologies, and embedded systems (e.g. Arduino)
– wearable technologies, smart watches, smart glasses, and smart gadgets
– cyber physical systems (CPS)
– urban informatics and smart transportation
– security and safety of environments

NUMA is looking for your bold, irritating and mind-opening ideas, no matter if you are a student, seasoned researcher, entrepreneur or artist. Whether thesis, project or product – our only condition is: you must be able to demo it, otherwise you are out! You will have to prove your idea with a working prototype, and if you are nominated you will need to demonstrate your work during MindTrek. As we are a cross-disciplinary competition, we created the following categories, to cope with all the latest trends:

– ?NUMA-TEC? – You have been pushing the boundaries of sensors and ubiquitous computing or invented some incredible new pervasive hardware? This award focuses on advances in ?Technology?.

– ?NUMA-KERS? – You have mastered the odds of physical computing and rapid prototyping and want to expose your devices beyond the maker community? This award focuses on the community of ?Makers?.

– ?NUMA-UX? – You are an interaction, experience designer, or artist and have gone where no content has been seen before? This award focuses on the ?Experience?.

– ?NUMA-CONTENT? – You are a content creator, application developer, designer, artist, game designer, or new media developer? This award focuses on new ambient, ubiquitous, and pervasive content.

NUMA 2014 gives all of you the chance to show your work to an interdisciplinary international jury and win a the award! Winners will also be invited to become part of the great MindTrek 2014 event and community with travel costs covered.

[Imageworld] Change of dates of the 2nd International Conference on Bioimaging – BIOIMAGING 2015

[visionlist] Post-doc position: Vision with Natural Images (Univ. of Pennsylvania)

Postdoctoral position to study perception in natural scenes

A postdoctoral position is available on natural scene statistics, depth cue processing, and behavioral measurements in the laboratory of Johannes Burge at the University of Pennsylvania.  In the lab, we use mathematics, computation, and psychophysics to investigate how vision works in natural conditions. We are broadly interested in how normative models of fundamental perceptual tasks and sub-tasks provide insight into behavioral performance and underlying neural mechanisms. Projects will focus on the processing of motion, stereo-disparity, defocus blur, and possibly color in images of natural scenes. 

I am looking for applicants with strong experience in computational modeling, probability theory, numerical optimization, and psychophysical experimentation. The ideal applicant will also have a general interest in natural images, depth perception, and rigorous experimental work.  Programming experience in Matlab, C/C++, and OpenGL is strongly desired, as is an inclination to tinker with high-end display equipment. The successful applicant will have the opporunity to work with: i) a recently collected state-of-the-art, stereo-image database with occlusion-free co-registered laser range data, ii) a high-performance computing cluster, iii) a Vpixx ProPixx stereo-projector (1920×1080 resolution at 480Hz; 240Hz per eye).

UPenn has a vibrant community of research groups on the leading edge of perception and systems neuroscience research. Philadelphia is a multi-cultural, diverse, affordable city. Applicants should submit a CV, a 1-page research statement, two sample papers (published or in preparation), and the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of three people qualified to recommend you and your work. The position is for one year with a strong possibility of renewel for a second and third year. To apply or ask questions please contact Johannes Burge at the University of Pennsylvania.
