We are pleased to invite you to the Academic MindTrek conference, 1st - 4th October 2013,
which brings together a cross-disciplinary crowd of people to investigate current and 
emerging topics of media in many facets. The conference explores academically the emerging 
and frontier-breaking applications of new media in everyday contexts of leisure, business 
and organizational life. October 2nd is the main Academic MindTrek day with other sessions 
on the preceding and following days. Due to increasing popularity of the conference, we are 
extending the scope of Academic MindTrek 2013! 

The academic conference features six major themes:

* Social Media
* Ambient & Ubiquitous Media
* Business & Media
* Human-Computer Interaction (new track!)
* Open Source
* Digital Games

Why participating?
The MindTrek Association hosts MindTrek as a yearly conference, where the Academic MindTrek 
conference has been a part of this unique set of events comprising competitions, world 
famous keynote speakers, plenary sessions, media festivals, and workshops since 1997. 
It is a meeting place where researchers, experts and thinkers present results from their 
latest work regarding the development of Internet, interactive media, and the information society:
* Real chance for media enthusiasts to think outside the box
* Brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines that are involved 
  in the development of media in various fields, ranging from sociology and the economy to technology
* The highest ranked papers will be published in academic journals (e.g. in 2012 we published a 
  selected set of articles in ACM Computers in Entertainment, Electronic Markets - The International 
  Journal on Networked Business, and the International Journal of Ambient Computing and Intelligence.
* Provides a chance to learn from the vast media genre at large
* Allows participants to exchange views with cross-disciplinary experts
* Aims to provide insights about the convergence of the various media and the future of media
* High-level keynote speakers. A few examples from previous years: Keith Partridge, Tomi T. Ahonen 
  (Consultant), Latif Ladid (IPV6 Forum), Beat Schwegler (Microsoft), Cinzia dal Zotto (Univ. of Neuchatel), 
  Ari Ojansivu (Google), Ramine Darabiha (Rovio), Molly R?nge (Crowdculture), Slava Kozlov (Philips Design), 
  Dave Nielsen (CloudCamp), Janne J?rvinen (F-Secure), Olavi Toivainen (Nokia), Herbert Snorrason (OpenLeaks), 
  Tuija Aalto (YLE), Juha Kaario (Varaani), among many others. Also this year we are preparing a wide set of 
  invited speakers & keynotes.

Social Media
"Get social!" Social media and Web 2.0 technologies are applied in ever diverse practices both 
in private and public communities. Totally new business models are emerging, traditional 
communication and expression modalities are challenged, and new practices are constructed 
in the collaborative, interactive media space.
Ambient and Ubiquitous Media
"The medium is the message!? - This conference track focuses on the definition of ambient and 
ubiquitous media with a cross-disciplinary viewpoint: ambient media between technology, art, 
and content. The focus of this track is on applications, location based services, ubiquitous 
computation, augmented reality, theory, art-works, mixed reality concepts, the Web 3.0, and 
user experiences that make ubiquitous and ambient media tick.

Media Business, Media Production and Media Management
Media business and media management face the challenges of the emergence of new forms of digital 
media and focuses on leadership practices, business models and value chains. It discusses 
competition, patterns of media usage, advertising models, and how traditional media can cope with 
the challenges coming from digital media focusing on media business and media management issues.

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
The wide field of HCI is to discuss issues around human computer interaction modalities, consumer 
experience, design of computer systems, human aspects, universal media access, ergonomics, 
communication, novel interaction modalities, privacy, trusted systems, interaction theories, 
and sociological and psychological factors. This theme of devotes to several of these aspects, 
and is targeted to the scientific community dealing with several applied and theoretical 
aspects of HCI and user experience.

Open Source
The last decade has seen a significant increase in open source initiatives such as open source 
software, open standards, open content, open media, or even open source hardware. On the one 
hand, the open movement has created new kinds of opportunities such as new business models and 
development approaches. On the other hand, it has introduced new kinds of technical and 
non-technical challenges.

Digital Games
The culture and business of digital games is becoming increasingly varied. The current trends 
range from novel interface innovations and digital distribution channels to social game dynamics 
and player-generated content. The games track is open for theoretical works, empirical case 
studies and constructive projects.

The aim is to gather demonstrations from researchers and professionals from the communities 
related to the topics of MindTrek. The objective for the demonstrations is to provide a forum 
for exchanging experiences, practical projects, or media demonstrators. The target audience 
includes members of the academic community, industry, or laboratories who can demonstrate the 
results of their research projects with a practical implementation.
Special academic sessions (e.g. tutorials, demonstrations, workshops, and multidisciplinary 
sessions) will be held parallel to the MindTrek business conference. Academic speakers and 
authors are warmly welcome to register for the business conference tracks as part of the 
academic conference with our special registration rate. The Academic MindTrek registration 
includes full service such as coffees, lunches, and social gatherings.
The organizing committee invites you to submit original high quality full papers, long or 
short, addressing the special theme and the topics, for presentation at the conference and 
inclusion in the proceedings.
Conference Publications
The scientific part of the conference is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGMM, and ACM 
SIGCHI. Conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library, which includes 
short and long papers, workshop proposals, demonstration proposals, and tutorial proposals. 
Extended abstracts will be published in the adjunct conference proceedings; however, they 
will not be published within the ACM Digital Library. Selected high quality papers will be 
published in international journals, as book chapters, edited books, or via open access 
journals. There will also be a reward for the overall best paper from the academic conference. 
All the papers should follow the style guidelines of the conference.
Short and Long Paper Proposals
All submissions will be peer-reviewed double blinded, therefore please remove any information 
that could give an indication of the authorship. Short papers should be between 2-4 pages 
long and the paper presentation will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion within a session; 
long papers should be 6-8 pages and will be presented in 20 minutes slots, plus 5 minutes discussion.
