Digital and interactive technologies are becoming increasingly embedded in everyday lives of people around the world. 
Application of technologies such as real-time, context-aware, and interactive technologies; augmented and immersive 
realities;, social media; and location-based services has been particularly evident in urban environments where 
technological and sociocultural infrastructures enable easier deployment and adoption as compared to non-urban areas. 
There has been growing consumer demand for new forms of experiences and services enabled through these emerging technologies. 
We call this ambient media, as the media is embedded in the natural human living environment. This workshop focuses on 
ambient media services, applications, and technologies that promote people?s engagement in creating and re-creating 
liveliness in urban environments, particularly through arts, culture, and gastronomic experiences.

The workshop takes a multidisciplinary and future oriented approach, and welcomes participants from diverse disciplinary 
domains for open discussions about technological, sociocultural, and content-related aspects of ambient media services 
that support people?s engagement in (re)creating their urban environments into a livelier place through art, cultural, 
and gastronomic experiences. 

Within this context, we welcome submissions relating to (but not limited to) the following:
?	case-studies (successful, and especially unsuccessful ones);
?	speculative and innovative concepts or design;
?	demonstrations of services and applications;
?	user-experience studies and evaluations;
?	artistic installations and contents;
?	social and/or economic studies, businesses models, and marketing 
?	technological novelties, evaluations, and solutions;

?	Analysis of videos related to art, culture, and gastronomy
?	Ubiquitous environments and interfaces in lively city environments
?	Intelligent appliances and gadgets supporting art, culture and gastronomy
?	Multimedia learning for activities around smart city environments
