The third incarnation of the Seminar "Research Trends in Media Informatics" again offers a program full of exciting papers covering a broad range of topics from research areas in Media Informatics and related fields. Current research trends in the area of input and output modalities will shape how we will interact with computing systems in the near future. Multitouch displays, 3D screens, and electronic paper will surely be combined with augmented reality applications and touchless interaction systems. At the same time, technology will continue to permeate our everyday life even further as underlined by the contributions in the application domains session. The transformation of the electronic grid into a smart grid is a prime example. Similarly, cars will be connected with each other and the Internet to enable new applications and services for drivers. New electronic identity documents are the fruits of recent e-Government activities, requiring special consideration of privacy and security issues. The implications of new technology trends on privacy form the theme of the last session together with security mechanisms. Trusted computing is being discussed as a potential solution to current security issues ranging from desktop to mobile platforms. Especially smartphones, as personalized gadgets with extended sensing capabilities, require special attention when considering emerging security and privacy risks. In online social networks the desire for social interaction and information sharing clashes with implications from careless handling of personal data. While smartphones and social networks are technologies we interact with on a daily basis and their risks increasingly become the topic of public debate, the privacy risks of electronic road toll collection systems are less known but no less controversial. A balanced discussion of risks and countermeasures is provided by the related contributions.
