SAME 2013 
=========================================================================================================
Sustainability and sustainable urban environments are one of the goals of various research agendas 
and initiatives as e.g. the Regions of Climate Actions (R20). SAME 2013 devotes to the challenge, how 
information management and systems can support sustainable communities in their regional settings. 
This workshop focuses on the development of a research agenda around the wider topic of how smart 
media and automated systems can support the larger context of sustainability for communities with 
the help of information systems, social web technologies, smart media, and automated systems. The 
workshop defines a research agenda within this particular context, and especially devotes to the 
investigation of opened research issues how ubiquitous and pervasive computation can be utilized to 
create sustainable communities. Energy conservation and saving are one of the key-words SAME 2013 
will devote its focus: sustainable cities ? sustainable community ? sustainable energy ? sustainable 
culture supported by smart information systems, smart media, and fully automated systems. Smart 
electronics and infrastructure will be one major component in creating a green city environment. 
Within the scope of this workshop, the goal is to investigate smart technologies, policies, and projects 
that are devoting to the issue of sustainable communities to create a better living experience.
