The user view on cloud services

In addition to new computational and data management models we need user-centric models that support increasing of understanding about the environment where the users are using cloud services. The users act in a combined digital and physical world. They need services that especially help them to navigate in both of these worlds and between these worlds.

The complexity of digital world is increasing. It contains more and more things interacting and transferring information inside the digital world and between digital and physical world. We need models and frameworks to understand the interactions between physical and digital worlds. In Kuusisto & Kuusisto (2013) a physical and digital world framework is outlined. The framework consists of two dimensions: physical world and digital world. The framework models that activities are executed either in physical or digital world and they occur in one of those worlds. For example, traveling by a car is an activity that is executed and occurs in the physical world. If the driver needs a map update for his navigation system and pays the maps by a credit card he would perform an activity that is executed in the physical world but occurs in the digital world. The purchased maps update to the navigation system would be an activity that is executed and occurs in the digital world. The driver receiving route instructions is an activity executed in the digital world and occurring in the physical world. Recently, those activities executed in the digital world and occurring in the physical world have gained most interest.

One approach to the user-centric view on cloud services is to model services to be provided on the above described frameworks. Deeper studies are needed to experiment this and other frameworks more comprehensively.

I fail to find any information about the "invited speakers" - have they been notified already or is it still ongoing?

Thank you.

I have clicked "Register to attend the workshop" and it prompts me to create or edit my profile, which I have done, but there is no "register" button, and when I login to Digital Agenda Events it says "no upcoming events". Does this mean I am registered?

We had a technical problem with the site today. A draft agenda, including the names of the invited speakers will be uploaded today. E-mails have been sent to all invited speakers yesterday and earlier today.
