The conference will be held in Golf Hotel in Madonna di Campiglio that is located at the centre of a ski lift network over 150 kms long. Special hotel rates will be available for INTETAIN participants.
The conference intends to stimulate interaction among academic researchers and commercial developers of interactive entertainment systems. In addition to paper presentations, posters and demos, the conference will foster discussions in topic centered workshops and special events such as the design garage. Underlying Interactive Device Technologies (mobile devices, home entertainment centers, haptic devices, wall screen displays, information kiosks, holographic displays, fog screens, distributed smart sensors, immersive screens and wearable devices), can provide through a variety of Media Delivery Infrastructures (multimedia networks, interactive radio, streaming technologies, DVB-T/M, ITV, P2P, satellite broadcasting, UMTS, Bluetooth, Broadband, VoIP) and a series of user centered Intelligent Computational Technologies and Interactive Applications for Entertainment as described below.
The conference will launch an innovative type of activity: a design garage. At this activity the INTETAIN participants will perform in groups a hands-on limited task of designing intelligent entertainment applications. The best work will get the INTETAIN 2005 design garage competition award.
Authors of best contributions will be invited to submit extended papers to a special edition of IEEE Intelligent Systems Journal.
