  • E-learning, edutainment, serious/educational games
  • Entertainment through gaming (multi-player, online, mobile)

  • Virtual/mixed reality worlds in digital entertainment, art, culture, education, collaboration spaces, etc.
  • E-commerce, e-business, e-government, e-publishing, etc.

Through research in this area we envision to build a solid research base in the areas of multimedia, knowledge and web technologies, so as to elicit from innovation new applications and services, and, by exploiting synergies, prove the synergetic concept in carefully selected application areas.
