The workshop intended to intdicate a different perspective of Museums as Intelligent Envinronments. Modern museums seem to be today more open to technologies that may transform them to intelligent environments. The result of fusion of such technologies in museums may result in new kinds of augmented museum exhibits that sense visitors and interact with them and new kinds of visitors' experiences as they engage in new types of activities that transcend the linked physical and digital spaces. These new capabilities can enhance the educational and creative value of the museum visit.

MasIE workshop acted as a forum for reflection on the cultural experience supported by intelligent technologies and for exploration of new ideas and we would like to thank all the speakers and participants for making this workshop a great event.

We wish to thank especially the invited speaker Daniela Petrelli for the contribution she made at the Masie workshop sharing her insights and expertise with our attendees.

Daniela Petrelli stressed the prloblems arising from the emphasis on information delivery and proposed the use of smart exhibits and digitally augmented spaces as a way to intergrate digital content within the physical context and overcome the issues of social disruption and loss of affective experience.
