12th International Symposium on Multimedia Applications and Processing (MMAP'19)

Leipzig, Germany, 1 - 4 September, 2019

Organized by

Software Engineering Department, Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics, University of Craiova, Romania "Multimedia Applications Development" Research Centre

Background and Goals

Multimedia information has become ubiquitous on the web, creating new challenges for indexing, access, search and retrieval. 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, educational and governmental domains. Yet many challenges remain, especially when it comes to efficiently indexing, mining, querying, searching, retrieving, displaying and interacting with multimedia data.

The Multimedia - Processing and Applications 2019 (MMAP 2019) 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 applications.

As a result the conference goal is to bring together researchers, engineers, developers and practitioners in order to communicate their newest and original contributions. The key objective of the MMAP conference is to gather results from academia and industry partners working in all subfields of multimedia: content design, development, authoring and evaluation, systems/tools oriented research and development. 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 exactly fit into these areas will also be considered because they might be of benefit to conference attendees.

Call for Papers

MMAP 2019 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 2019 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 2016 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.
