Short Bio

Artur Lugmayr is an Associate Professor at Curtin University, Australia, in the area of data visualisation technologies, interactive media, media technology, human-computer-interaction, and media business/information management. Artur was a Professor for digital media business at the Tampere University of Technology (TUT), Finland, from 2009–2014, and established the Entertainment and Media Management Lab (digital media business) and the New Ambient Multimedia Lab (ubiquitous computation and smart media), which ran from 2004–2009. Artur holds a Dr.-Techn. degree (Information Technology, TUT), and is pursuing his Dr.-Arts studies in motion pictures at Aalto University, Finland. He was a visiting scientist in Singapore, Brisbane, Austria, and Ghana, and has raised or been involved in 1.7+ MEUR funding (excluding 2014/2015 applications), 170+ publications, 24+ invited keynotes, and 27+ invited guest lectures since 2000.

Memberships Awards and Training

Artur won the Nokia Award of 2003 with his textbook “Digital Interactive TV and Metadata – Future Broadcast Multimedia” published by Springer-Verlag in 2004. He won the ELISA award for the textbook “Ambient Media and Beyond”, and received a special mention for his NAMU research group at the ELISA Ubimedia Award at MindTrek in 2007 for the open source Portable Personality (P2) software. Artur founded the Academic MindTrek Conference series in Tampere, Finland (which he organised as general chair between 2007 and 2014), the Semantic Ambient Media (SAME) workshop series, the Nokia Ubimedia MindTrek Award series, the EuroITV Grand Challenge series, and the Interactive Digital TV in Emerging Economies workshop series.

He organised the Academic MindTrek Conference for seven years, as well as the EuroITV conference in Tampere in 2010. He is also the publisher and founder of the open access journal and series entitled International Series on Information Systems and Management in Media Industry (ISMMI). He acted as a reviewer, committee member and editorial board member for several publishers and journals, such as SERC Press, Wiley & Sons, IGI-Global, Springer-Verlag, IEEE, Inderscience, and the International Journal on Media Management. He was also part of the review and committees of several conferences, such as ACM-MM, AmI, ICEC, MobileCHI, ICME, EuroITV, NordiCHI, UIC, MMEDIA, Interact, uxTV, ACM-CHI, EBRF, IEEE-IE, VC, PDP.  In future, Artur will only be accepting committee positions when he knows the organisers. He has organised 8+ international conferences, 20+ international workshops at conferences, held 13+ conference tutorials, organised 6+ media awards, edited 6+ books, and edited 12+ special issues.

Scientific Community

Artur has held lectures and talks at Aalto University (Finland), Harvard Medical School (USA), Queensland University of Technology (Australia), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Federal University of Amazonas (Brazil), University of Neuchatel (Switzerland), Chemnitz University of Technology (Germany), Xi’an  (China), Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles, USA), Infocomm Development Authority (Singapore), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), and the Academy of Arts (San Francisco, USA).

Teaching and Education

One of Artur’s passions is teaching, and his vision is to “engage and fascinate students, and provide the very best service for students”. He hopes to also offer good advice for their future pathways, which might help them in the future, especially if they want to join the academic community. He is currently establishing the Visualisation Technologies MSc./BSc. course at Curtin University in Australia. He has also been teaching and helping the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, with the Association of Academics without Borders Canada (AAWBC) within their PhD teaching curriculum building. He previously established the Digital Media Management major study program at the Tampere University of Technology in Finland. His previous courses at universities are crossovers between the fields of humanities, technology, and business: business/management/IS in media industries, ubiquitous and pervasive computation, digital games, intelligent/smart media, computer graphics/VR/AR, digital television, mass media, and mass communication. Currently he is supervising four PhD theses, and since 2000 he has supervised/examined 6+ PhD thesis, 26+ MSc theses, 7+ BSc theses, and 40+ student projects.

Research Interests

The cornerstones of Artur’s research are:

  1. cross-disciplinarily  – the way the dialogue between humanities, technology, science, and business leads to novel inventions and discoveries tagged with potential business models
  2. non-focusing – focusing in research is “like closing one’s eyes and wondering where the light is – opening the eyes makes one see the possibilities and solutions around us, discover, remain flexible, and see solutions we would not have otherwise seen” 
  3. creative cybernetic thinking – cybernetic thinking, and committing to not giving up, is one of the drivers that pushes the state of the art  forward – contextual and cybernetic thinking particularly encourages the emergence of new things  
  4. developing theory and context – thinking about the big picture, the larger context, and contributing to larger theories by integrating experimental data, and using critical thinking around existing theories.

Following these four cornerstones, Artur’s research focus is not focused , and is situated somewhere between art and science. He is known for finding solutions for the unthinkable and having visionary ideas which have never been thought of. His work touches the fields of media technology, media management, and media content creation. Artur has investigated digital interactive TV, ambient media (aka ubiquitous/pervasive media), digital motion picture production, information systems in the media industry, new business models in times of a transforming media industry, and the phenomenon of convergence, and he is now exploring visualisation technology.
