Using and Improving OpenMP for Devices, Tasks, and More
Luiz DeRose, Bronis R. de Supinski, Stephen L. Olivier, Barbara M. Chapman, Matthias S. Müller
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on OpenMP, held in Salvador, Brazil, in September 2014. The 16 technical full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 18 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on tasking models and their optimization; understanding and verifying correctness of OpenMP programs; OpenMP memory extensions; extensions for tools and locks; experiences with OpenMP device constructs.
User-centric Social Multimedia Computing
This book presents the first paradigm of social multimedia computing completely from the user perspective. Different from traditional multimedia and web multimedia computing which are content-centric, social multimedia computing rises under the participatory Web2.0 and is essentially user-centric. The goal of this book is to emphasize the user factor in facilitating effective solutions towards both multimedia content analysis, user modeling and customized user services. Advanced topics like cross-network social multimedia computing are also introduced as extensions and potential directions along this research line.
Alessandro Aldini, Alessandro Bogliolo
This work represents a milestone for the 'ULOOP User-centric Wireless Local Loop' project funded by the EU IST Seventh Framework Programme.ULOOP is focused on the robust, secure, and autonomic deployment of user-centric wireless networks. Contributions by ULOOP partners as well as invited tutorials by international experts in the field. The expected impact is to increase awareness to user-centric networking in terms, e.g., of business opportunities and quality of experience, and to present adequate technology to sustain the growth of user-friendly wireless architectures.Throughout the last 3 years, ULOOP has developed enabling technologies for user-centricity in wireless networks, with particular emphasis on social trust management, cooperation incentives, community building, mobility estimation, and resource management.This work will be of interest to researchers, policymakers, operators, vendors, and end-users interested in the current and future directions of user-centric access networks.

User-Centered Interaction Design Patterns for Interactive Digital Television Applications
With a focus on the usability of iTV applications, this book provides clear guidelines for designing the user interfaces on interactive TV applications. And the approach presented is generic, so it can be applied to other platforms and technologies.
User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization
Vania Dimitrova, Tsvi Kuflik, David Chin, Francesco Ricci, Peter Dolog, Geert-Jan Houben
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on User Modeling, Adaption and Personalization, held in Aalborg, Denmark, in July 2014. The 23 long and 19 short papers of the research paper track were carefully reviewed and selected from 146 submissions. The papers cover the following topics: large scale personalization, adaptation and recommendation; Personalization for individuals, groups and populations; modeling individuals, groups and communities; Web dynamics and personalization; adaptive web-based systems; context awareness; social recommendations; user experience; user awareness and control; Affective aspects; UMAP underpinning by psychology models; privacy; perceived security and trust; behavior change and persuasion.
