IEEE MultiMedia special issue--Intelligent Pervasive Multimedia Systems;=multimedia_level1&path;=multimedia/content&file;=CFPJan2009.xml&xsl;=article.xsl&


Recent advances in pervasive computers, networks, telecommunications, and information technology, along with the proliferation of multimedia mobile devices - such as laptops, iPods, personal digital assistants (PDA), and cellular telephones - have stimulated the development of intelligent pervasive multimedia applications. These key technologies are creating a multimedia revolution that will have significant impact across a wide spectrum of consumer, business, healthcare, and governmental domains. Yet many challenges remain, especially when it comes to efficiently indexing, mining, querying, searching, and retrieving multimedia data.

The goal of this special issue is to offer a collection of techniques and applications in the area of intelligent pervasive multimedia computing, including efficient delivery and distribution of multimedia content, applications, and services over the wired and wireless networks as well as multimedia QoS support for such networks. We are also interested in looking at service architectures, protocols, and standards for multimedia communications - including middleware - along with the related security issues, such as secure multimedia information sharing. Finally, we would also like to publish work on novel applications that exploit the unique set of advantages offered by intelligent pervasive multimedia computing techniques, including home-networked entertainment and games.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • scalable multimedia delivery for pervasive computing; multimedia security for intelligent pervasive computing; multimedia streaming techniques and architectures; mobile content and application distribution networks; multimedia QoS support for wired and wireless networks; Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols with multimedia QoS support in wireless networks; online gaming (services, architectures, protocols, and security); interactive multimedia systems and applications; distributed services middleware and systems for multimedia communications; TV-centric home networks, digital TV, and home-networked entertainment and games; multimedia languages, standards, and formats for multichannel content distribution; GRID and distributed systems for multimedia content production and retrieval; and Web services for content distribution; distribution with P2P architectures.
