                         The total AWARD SUM: 6.000? 


NUMA2012 seeks for novel ways to combine ubiquitous computing to media. We are 
looking for disruptive artistic visions as well as clever near-to-market 
solutions off the beaten tracks! This includes any range of innovative ubimedia, 
pervasive, or ambient products and services. The Nokia Ubimedia MindTrek Awards 
is a highly interdisciplinary competition and we invite Designers, Computer 
Scientists, Artists, Economists and Engineers to take a stand on one of the 
following questions with their entries:

// What is the aesthetic experience opened up by the rise of ubiquitous and ambient media?
// What constitutes the specific intelligence that drives future media environments?
// How will location- and context-aware media services change our social life?
// How will our future lives look like in the era of ubiquitous computation?
// How can society as a whole benefit from these advanced technologies?

Valid competition entries include:
// Pervasive and ubiquitous games
// Ambient installations
// Artistic works related to ubiquitous media and computation
// Business models and management strategies
// Ambient and ubiquitous media technology
// Ubiquitous and ambient media services, devices, and environments
// Context aware, sensing, and interfaces for ubiquitous computation
// Ergonomics, human-computer interaction designs, and product prototypes
// Software, hardware and middleware framework demonstrations
// Ambient television
// Any other inspiring work in the broad context of ubiquitous media

All ubiquitous, pervasive, or ambient media products, services or prototypes which have 
been finalized during the previous year after 1st January 2011 are eligible to take part.
