Today, with rapid developments in electronics industry and the amazing growth of potential customers, media are increasingly ubiquitous: an increasing number of people live in a world of Internet pop-ups and streaming television, mobile phone texting and video clips, MP3 players and pod-casting. These ubiquitous media creates our consumer and brand environment and have been contributing extensively to our life experience, especially applications in mobile and other embedded devices. Therefore, the media, embedded and especially their emergence technologies, have become state-of-the-art research topics and are expected to play important roles of human life in the future.

The objective of the Special Issue is to bring together state-of-art research contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address the broad challenges of integrating ubiquitous media technologies into everyday objects, devices and activities with ubiquitous computing and embedded systems. Original papers describing completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference/special issue are solicited.
