About the Conference
Nowadays we see strong demand for development of robust infrastructure for retrieving, storing and processing information of various types, which is obtained from and delivered to the broad spectrum of different user devices. This is especially critical when the volume of information increases as rapidly as its value. As a consequence the methods and solutions for efficient processing, reusing and reasoning over user's data has gained a lot of attention in the last years and became the key aspect of application design. Further developments in this field creates a lot of opportunities to apply new business models and is a key enabler for the concept of pro-active service.
The wireless solutions have moved beyond their traditional areas of application and today we can talk about a space where users can access a number of wireless technologies and interact with various services. Similarly, existent and future services cover the wide range of user demands, ranging from searching and browsing contents to interactive context and location aware solution that explore advanced multimedia capabilities of the surrounding devices. These layers form a smart environment that harmonizes a number of technologies and provides the best possible personalized user experience. Also it helps to address a number of challenges of the modern society, starting from efficient indoor use of energy and to smart logistics and broad-scope deployment of the green principles and technologies.
This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of smart space technologies and solutions. In this regard, the conference aims to bring together research professionals from diverse fields including but not limited to wireless communication, ubiquitous networks, software development, multimedia, services, and business in both academia and industry. Conference proceedings will be published in LNCS, Springer (confirmed) and indexed by relevant databases.
The ruSMART 2011 will be held in St. Petersburg, Russia - the meeting point of East and West. Through its stunning architecture and wonderful art galleries and museums, among a number of other attractions, the wealth of history of East and West can be seen and felt in this beautiful city.
