Truly own hand held and wearable applied sciences can be small and unobtrusive and make allowance entry to details and computing as a rule and in so much situation. Complimentary, environment-based applied sciences make artifacts of our surrounding global computationally obtainable and facilitate use of daily environments as a ubiquitous computing interface. The foreign Symposium on hand-held and Ubiquitous Computing, held for the 1st time in September 1999, was once initiated to enquire hyperlinks and synergies in those advancements, and to narrate advances in own applied sciences to these in environment-based applied sciences. The HUC ninety nine Symposium was once organised by way of the collage of Karlsruhe, specifically by way of the Telecooperation workplace (TecO) of the Institute for Telematics, in shut collaboration with ZKM Karlsruhe, which generously hosted the development in its really inspiring middle for humanities and Media know-how. The symposium was once supported through the organization of Computing equipment (ACM) and the German machine Society (Gesellschaft f r Informatik, GI) and held in cooperation with a few distinctive curiosity teams of those clinical societies. HUC ninety nine attracted various paper submissions, from which the foreign programme committee chosen 23 fine quality contributions for presentation on the symposium and for inclusion in those court cases. moreover, posters have been solicited to supply an outlet for novel rules and late-breaking effects; chosen posters also are incorporated with those complaints. The technical programme was once extra complemented by means of 4 invited keynote addresses, and panel sessions.

This quantity, containing the court cases of IVA 2003, held at Kloster Irsee, in Germany, September 15–17, 2003, is testimony to the transforming into value of IntelligentVirtualAgents(IVAs) asaresearch?eld.Wereceived67submissions, approximately two times as many as for IVA 2001, not just from eu international locations, yet from China, Japan, and Korea, and either North and South the United States. As IVA examine develops, increasingly more program parts and pl- types also are being researched. Interface brokers are used as a part of greater - plications, frequently on the net. schooling purposes draw on digital actors and digital drama, whereas the appearance of 3D cellular computing and the convergence of phones and PDAs produce geographically-aware courses and cellular - tertainment purposes. A topic that would be obvious in the various papers during this quantity is the impression of embodiment on IVA learn – a char- teristic di?erentiating it to some degree from the bigger ?eld of software program agents.

Research within the box of parallel laptop architectures and parallel algorithms has been very winning in recent times, and additional growth isto be anticipated. however, the query of simple ideas of the structure of common parallel desktops and their realizations continues to be broad open. the reply to this question has to be considered as mostimportant for the extra improvement of parallel computing and particularly for consumer recognition. the 1st Heinz Nixdorf Symposium introduced jointly best specialists within the box of parallel computing and its functions to debate the cutting-edge, promising instructions of analysis, and destiny views. It was once the 1st in a sequence of Heinz Nixdorf Symposia,intended to hide various topics from the examine spectrum of the Heinz Nixdorf Institute of the college of Paderborn. This quantity offers the complaints of the symposium, which was once held in Paderborn in November 1992. The contributions are grouped into 4 components: parallel computation versions and simulations, latest parallel machines, communique and programming paradigms, and parallel algorithms.

Euro-Parisaninternationalconferencededicatedtothepromotionandadvan- ment of all points of parallel computing. the most important subject matters may be divided into the vast different types of undefined, software program, algorithms and purposes for p- allel computing. the target of Euro-Par is to supply a discussion board during which to advertise the advance of parallel computing either as an business te- nique and an educational self-discipline, extending the frontier of either the cutting-edge and the country of the perform. this can be really very important at a time while parallel computing is present process robust and sustained improvement and experiencing genuine business take-up. the most viewers for and members in Euro-Parareseenasresearchersinacademicdepartments,governmentlabora- ries and business firms. Euro-Par’s aim is to develop into the first number of such pros for the presentation of recent leads to their specic components. Euro-Par can be drawn to purposes which display the e - tiveness of the most Euro-Par issues. there's now an everlasting website for the sequence http://brahms. fmi. uni-passau. de/cl/europar the place the heritage of the convention is defined. Euro-Par is now backed by means of the organization of machine equipment and the overseas Federation of knowledge Processing. Euro-Par’99 The layout of Euro-Par’99follows that of the earlier 4 meetings and includes a couple of subject matters eachindividually monitored via a committee of 4. there have been initially 23 subject matters for this year’s convention. the decision for papers attracted 343 submissions of which 188 have been authorised. Of the papers authorised, four have been judged as exclusive, 111 as common and seventy three as brief papers.

The mid-1990ssaw an exhilarating convergenceof a couple of dieren t info safety applied sciences, whose subject matter used to be the hiding (as against encryption) of data. Copyright marking schemes are approximately hiding both copyright notices or person serial numbers imperceptibly in electronic audio and video, as an element in highbrow estate safety platforms; nameless c- munication is one other zone of speedy progress, with humans designing platforms for digital funds, electronic elections, and privateness in cellular communications; se- rity researchers also are attracted to ‘stray’ verbal exchange channels, similar to these which come up through shared resourcesin working structures or the actual le- age of knowledge via radio frequency emissions; and n best friend, many employees in those elds drew concept from ‘classical’ hidden verbal exchange equipment equivalent to steganography and spread-spectrum radio. The rst overseas workshop in this new emergent self-discipline of inf- mation hiding used to be organised by way of Ross Anderson and held on the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, from the thirtieth may possibly to the first June 1996, and was once judged through attendees to be a winning and signi cant occasion. as well as a few study papers, we had invited talks from David Kahn at the heritage of steganography and from Gus Simmons at the heritage of subliminal channels. We additionally had a couple of dialogue classes, culminating in a sequence of votes on universal phrases and de nitions. those papers and talks, including mins of the dialogue, are available within the lawsuits, that are released during this sequence as quantity 1174.
