Call: Chapters for Multiple Sensorial Media Advances and Applications

Proposals Submission Deadline: 12/20/2009

Multiple Sensorial Media Advances and Applications:
New Developments in MulSeMedia
A book edited by Dr. George Ghinea (Brunel University), Dr. Frederic Andres (CVCE/NII), and Dr.
Stephen Gulliver (University of Reading)


Traditionally, multimedia applications have primarily engaged two of the human senses – the audio and the visual – out of the five possible. With recent advances in computational technology, it is now possible to talk of applications that engage the other three senses, as well: tactile, olfaction, and gustatory. This integration leads to a paradigm shift away from the old multimedia towards the newmulsemedia – multiple sensorial media.

Recommended Topics
