International Symposium on
– Applications and Processing (MMAP'08)
Poland, October 20-22, 2008
– 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.
will be organized by Software Engineering Department,
Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics,
University of Craiova, Romania ("Multimedia
Applications Development" Research Centre).
BACKGROUND AND GOALS
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
