Multimedia has evolved with the introduction of interaction, allowing and encouraging users to control and navigate through content. Experimental multimedia is a new human-computer communication method that allows for the reinvention and redevelopment of user content.

Experimental Multimedia Systems for Interactivity and Strategic Innovation presents the next evolutionary step of multimedia where interactivity meets targeted creativity and experimentation. In providing the basic framework for experimental multimedia through case studies that allow the reader to appreciate the design of multimedia systems, this publication’s audience extends beyond new media artists to scientists, publishers, and developers who wish to extend their system designs to offer adaptive capabilities combined with multimedia content and dynamic interaction.

This publication presents a collection of carefully selected theoretical and applied research chapters with a focus on matters including, but not limited to, aesthetics in publishing, e-health systems, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, human-computer interaction, interactive multimedia, and new media curation.

Topics Covered

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

  • Artificial Neural Networks
  • Augmented Reality
  • Edutainment
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Interactive Art
  • Multimedia Applications
  • New Media Curation

Reviews and Testimonials

Contributors in information science, communication technology, art and art history, and a range of other disciplines explore how new groups of users adapt and alter older communications technologies to meet their own needs. Their topics include bare nothingness: situated subjects in embodied artists' systems, affective audio synthesis for sound experience enhancement, dealing with the uncertainty of satisfaction surveys in organizations that employ interactive multimedia: an analysis of false answers statistical models through a digital music library case study, developing an interactive biology laboratory simulation platform for educational purposes, and evaluating mathematical cognitive functions with the use of electroencephalograph brain imaging.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Ioannis Deliyannis is an appointed Lecturer in the field of “Interactive Multimedia and Digital Technology” at the Department of Audiovisual Arts at Ionian University, Corfu, Greece since 2010. His research interests include the application of Interactive and Multimedia Communication Technologies in the area of Audiovisual Arts. He is the author of a series of journal and conference publications in the above fields, followed by a series of books targeting the experimental and creative aspects of the technologies involved. He completed his undergraduate studies (B.Sc.) and was subsequently offered a scholarship to pursue a Ph.D degree in the field of Interactive Multimedia at the University of Wales Swansea. He holds a Computer Science Degree (1997, University of Wales Swansea) and a Ph.D in the field of Interactive Multimedia (2002, University of Wales Swansea). He worked within the Computational Fluid Dynamics research team as a research student under the supervision of Professors P. Townsend and M. F. Webster. His research work was largely related with multi-media applications, visualisation and web-based technologies applied to complex scientific fields such as Computational Rheology and the development of Educational Systems for Research and Interactive Learning. This work was truly groundbreaking in the field forming a highly respected thesis on the subject. It led to wide public exposure and a deeper understanding of the systems involved. This work is actively utilised and extended under the Institute for Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics and Swansea CFD research group. Today he is a founding member of the inArts Research Laboratory (inArts.eu) and a member of the faculty of Music and Audiovisual Arts at Ionian University.
Petros A. Kostagiolas is Assistant Professor of information services management in the Department of Archive, Library Science and Museology, Faculty of Information Science and Informatics at Ionian University, Corfu, Greece. He is also a visiting lecturer at Robert Gordon’s University, Aberdeen, U.K. He holds a Ph.D. in the field of quality and reliability management from the University of Birmingham, U.K. and he has published his work in international journals and conference proceedings. He has been co-author of four management books in Greek and author of a book titled “Managing Intellectual Capital in Libraries: beyond the balance sheet” published in Chandos-Elsevier publisher. His research interests include the theory and practice of information services management, healthcare management, intellectual capital management, quality management, as well as information seeking behaviour in various settings with emphasis in healthcare.
Christina Banou is Assistant Professor in Book Policy and Publishing in the Department of Archives, Library Science & Museology, Faculty of Information Science and Informatics, Ionian University, Corfu, Greece. Banou studied at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Dep. of Phililogy, she holds a Ph.D. on the ornamentation and illustration of Greek books printed in Italy during the Renaissance and the early Baroque era (Dep. of History, Ionian University, 2002). She has been a visiting lecturer in autumn 2014 at the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Business School, Dep. of Information Management. Her main areas of research interests include publishing, book policy, current trends of the publishing industry, history of the book publishing industry, aesthetics of the printed book, reading policy, development of the publishing policy and of promotion strategies, art history of the printed book, and the impact of new technologies on the book publishing activity. She has presented papers in refereed journals and has participated at international conferences. Two monographs of her concerning the publishing industry have been published in Greek: Banou, Christina (2012), Gutenberg’s Next Step: the Publishing Companies in Greece at the Beginning of the 21st century, Athens: Papazisis Publishers. Banou, Christina (2008), Diachronic Features of the Publishing Industry in the Western World, Athens: Kotinos Publications.
