Description & Coverage
Description:

Advances in computational and device technologies, combined with the commercial success and acceptance of 3D, haptic, and various other media presentation devices, has increased commercial interest in engaging additional senses within the multimedia experience. This integration is leading to a paradigm shift away from traditionally defined multimedia systems, and towards more interactive Multiple Sensory Media (MulSeMedia) systems.

Multiple Sensorial Media Advances and Applications: New Developments in MulSeMedia provides a comprehensive compilation of knowledge covering state-of-the-art developments and research, as well as current innovative activities in MulSeMedia. This book focuses on the importance of Multiple Sensorial Media and its importance in media design with an emphasis on the applicability to real world integration and provides a broad perspective on the future of the technology in a variety of cohesive topic areas.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D Environments
  • FIVIS Simulation Environment
  • Fluid Dynamics Simulation
  • Haptic Rendering
  • Multi-Sensory Entertainment
  • Multimodal Data
  • Multiplasticity
  • Non-Visual Programming
  • Olfactory Display
  • Virtual Reality
Reviews and Testimonials

We believe we have exciting, high quality contributions from a wide variety of researchers involved in the area – mulsemedia is happening in all corners of the world, and it is happening now.

Editor/Author Biographies
George Ghinea received the B.Sc. and B.Sc. (Hons) degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics, in 1993 and 1994, respectively, and the M.Sc. degree in Computer Science, in 1996, from the Universityof the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa; he then received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Reading, United Kingdom, in 2000. He is a Reader in the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics at Brunel University, United Kingdom. Dr Ghinea has over 100 refereed publications and currently leads a team of 8 research students in his fields of interest, which span perceptual multimedia, semantic media management, human computer interaction, and network security. He has co-edited three books including Digital Multimedia Perception and Design for IGI.
Frederic Andres has been an Associate Professor in the Digital Content and Media Sciences Research Division at the National Institute of Informatics (NII) since 2000 and at The Graduate University for Advanced Studies since 2002. He received his Ph.D. from University of PARIS VI and his Doctor Habilitate (specialization: information engine) from University of Nantes, in 1993 and 2000 respectively. For more than 10 years Dr. Andres has been pursuing basic and applied research in semantic management, semantic digital library, knowledge clustering and Topic Maps. Since 2003, Dr. Andres continues to develop and to refine innovative learning based on procedural memory and related to semantic and pedagogy/didactic enrichment. His research interests include digital ecosystem, semantic digital Library, image learning ontology, immersive knowledge, and MulSeMedia. He has published more than 100 scientific papers and he produced various patents on Cost Evaluation and Modeling. In the past 5 years, he has been participating in innovative digital ecosystem projects in Luxembourg (CVCE), France (Bourgogne University), Thailand (KU, NECTEC), India (Bishop Heber College(Autonomous) and Nepal. He is project leader of the Geomedia project and Myscoper project. Dr. Frederic Andres is a senior member of ACM, a member of IEEE, of the IEEE Technical Committee on Semantic Computing and IPSJ. He is also observer in ISO SC29/WG11/MPEG and SC34/W3 on Topic Maps working groups.
Stephen Gulliver received a BEng. (Hons) degree in Microelectronics, an MSc. degree (Distributed Information Systems) and a PhD in 1999, 2001, and 2004 respectively. Stephen worked within the Human Factors Integration Defence Technology Centre (HFI DTC), before getting a job as a lecturer at Brunel University (2005-2008). Now, as a lecturer within the Informatics Research Centre (IRC), a core part of Henley Business School (Reading University), his personal research relates to the area of user and pervasive Informatics. Dr. Gulliver has published in a number of related fields, including: multimedia and information assimilation, usability, key performance indicators and user acceptance. Dr. Gulliver supervises research relating to topics including: VR information acquisition, extensible modelling frameworks, CRM and ERP acceptance, intelligent building systems, eye-tracking technologies and multimedia content personalisation.
