With its possibilities for globalization and communication, the Internet offers archives, encyclopedias, data collections, and libraries the opportunity to make their knowledge collections available worldwide. At the same time, it represents a tremendous challenge and competition in terms of creativity and technology. The demand for an orientation guide in these areas is enormous.This publication draws upon historical milestones – from the Encyclopedia of Diderot and d'Alembert all the way to Wikipedia and Google Archive – to explore the meaning of “universal knowledge” as well as the process of collecting, structuring, designing, and publishing it. Creators and researchers from many different fields have set standards for the classification and design of complex data collections and thus exerted an enormous influence on how knowledge is communicated. This facilitates knowledge transfer, but it also increases the danger of manipulation. Along with these aspects, the book also explores the possibilities of “universal design” and presents new approaches to visualizing complex information.

2CO COmmunicating COmplexity is the international design conference aiming at exploring languages, approaches and technologies to respond to the emerging need for making complex information accessible throught design. 2CO’s first edition (25-26 October 2013, Alghero, Italy) has gathered an international community of professionals and scholars active in this area to share experiences, points of views and methodologies, focusing on three main areas of interest: informative-animation, interactive data visualization, info-graphics. This volume collects their contributions in the three conference categories: full papers, posters and ‘junior track’ special session. Generated by a consortium of European Universities that in 2011 started collaborating on the InformAnimation project, and by fellow Universities active in visual design teaching and research, COmmunicating COmplexity aims at becoming an international reference point for research and education in the area of communicating complexity through new media.

This volume is an outgrowth of a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on "Expert Judgment and Expert Systems," held in Porto, Portugal, August 1986. Support for the Workshop was provided by the NATO Division of Scientific Affairs, the U.S. Army Research Institute, and the U.S. National Science Foundation. The Workshop brought together researchers from the fields of psychology, decision analysis, and artificial intelligence. The purposes were to assess similarities, differences, and complementarities among the three approaches to the study of expert judgment; to evaluate their relative strengths and weaknesses; and to propose profitable linkages between them. Each of the papers in the present volume is directed toward one or more of those goals. We wish to express our appreciation and thanks to the following persons for their support and assistance: John Adams, Vincent T. Covello, Luis da Cunha, Claire Jeseo, B. Michael Kantrowitz, Margaret Lally, Judith Orasanu, R. M. Rodrigues, and Sandor P. Schuman.

What is the Role of Intelligent Technologies in the Next Generation of Robots ? This monograph gives answers to this question and presents emergent trends of Intelligent Systems and Robotics. After an introductory chapter celebrating 70 year of publishing the McCulloch Pitts model the book consists of the 2 parts „Robotics“ and „Intelligent Systems“. The aim of the book is to contribute to shift conventional robotics in which the robots perform repetitive, pre-programmed tasks to its intelligent form, where robots possess new cognitive skills with ability to learn and adapt to changing environment. A main focus is on Intelligent Systems, which show notable achievements in solving various problems in intelligent robotics. The book presents current trends and future directions bringing together Robotics and Computational Intelligence. The contributions include widespread experimental and theoretical results on intelligent robotics such as e.g. autonomous robotics, new robotic platforms, or talking robots.

The four-volume set LNCS 8513-8516 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Universal Access in Human-Computer Interaction, UAHCI 2014, held as part of the 16th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, HCII 2014, held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece in June 2014, jointly with 14 other thematically similar conferences. The total of 1476 papers and 220 posters presented at the HCII 2014 conferences was carefully reviewed and selected from 4766 submissions. These papers address the latest research and development efforts and highlight the human aspects of design and use of computing systems. The papers thoroughly cover the entire field of human-computer interaction, addressing major advances in knowledge and effective use of computers in a variety of application areas. The total of 251 contributions included in the UAHCI proceedings were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in this four-volume set. The 65 papers included in this volume are organized in the following topical sections: access to mobile interaction; access to text, documents and media; access to education and learning; access to games and ludic engagement and access to culture.
