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
