Topics of interest
INTETAIN 2008 aims 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 through workshops and special events.

INTETAIN 2008 focuses on the development of novel user-centered 
intelligent computational technologies and interactive applications for 
entertainment, being made possible through the use of a wide range of 
interactive device technologies (e.g., mobile and wearable devices, home 
entertainment centers, haptic devices, wall screen displays, information 
kiosks, holographic displays, fog screens, distributed smart sensors, 
and immersive displays) and media delivery infrastructures (e.g., 
multimedia networks, interactive radio, streaming technologies, DVB-T/M, 
ITV, P2P, satellite broadcasting, UMTS, Bluetooth, Broadband, and VoIP).

We seek novel, revolutionary, and exciting work in areas including but 
not limited to:
