First International Symposium on
 Multimedia – Applications and Processing (MMAP'08)

Wisla, Poland, October 20-22, 2008

Multimedia – Applications and Processing (MMAP'08) will be organized within the framework of the International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Technology and co-located with the XXIV Autumn Meeting of the Polish Information Processing Society.
MMAP'08 will be organized by Software Engineering Department, Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics, University of Craiova, Romania ("Multimedia Applications Development" Research Centre).



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 Multimedia - Processing and Applications 2008 (MMAP'08) Symposium addresses several themes related to theory and practice within multimedia domain. The enormous interest in multimedia from many activity areas (medicine, entertainment, education) led researchers and industry to make a continuous effort to create new, innovative multimedia algorithms and application.
As a result the conference goal is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners in order to communicate their newest and original contributions on topics that have been identified (see below). 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 encourage submissions describing work on novel applications that exploit the unique set of advantages offered by multimedia computing techniques, including home-networked entertainment and games. However, innovative contributions that don't fit into these areas will also be considered because they might be of benefit to conference attendees.


MMAP'08 is a major forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to present, discuss, and exchange ideas that address real-world problems with real-world solutions.
The MMAP'08 Symposium welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all aspects of multimedia domain ranging from concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and innovative applications. MMAP'08 invites original previously unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference.
Papers acceptance and publication will be judged based on their relevance to the symposium theme, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions.


Topics of interest are related to Multimedia Processing and Applications including, but are not limited to the following areas:
  • Image and Video Processing
  • Speech, Audio and Music Processing
  • 3D and Stereo Imaging
  • Distributed Multimedia Systems
  • Multimedia Databases, Indexing, Recognition and Retrieval
  • Data Mining
  • E-Learning, E-Commerce and E-Society Applications
  • Multimedia in Medical Applications 
  • Authentication and Watermarking
  • Entertainment and games
  • Multimedia Interfaces

Papers submission

  • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
