Call for papers: Ubiquitous Multimedia Computing: Systems, Networking, and Applications

A special issue of International Journal of Ad Hoc and Ubiquitous Computing

Ubiquitous multimedia computing is an important and fast growing research area. Ubiquitous multimedia services allows people to access rich multimedia content anytime, anywhere, using different access networks and different computing devices. To date, the development of ubiquitous multimedia computing is still in its infancy although a few ubiquitous multimedia services have been developed and deployed in our daily lives, such as mobile audio/video streaming, mobile e-learning, and remote video surveillance. It is anticipated that ubiquitous multimedia computing will change the way we operate and interact with the world with the development of numerous interesting ubiquitous multimedia applications.

Unlike traditional multimedia computing, ubiquitous multimedia computing aims to be thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities. The new possibilities of ubiquitous multimedia computing pose new challenges across many areas in computer science: wireless and mobile networks, multimedia processing, multimedia systems and applications, operating systems, middleware, and user devices.

This special issue aims to foster state-of-the-art research in the area of ubiquitous multimedia computing and is expected to focus on all aspects of ubiquitous multimedia computing including emerging technologies, theoretical studies, practical applications, and experimental prototypes.

We encourage the submission of innovative and mature results in designing, analysing, and developing technology, services, and applications of ubiquitous multimedia computing. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
  • Wireless and mobile networking for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Quality of service provisioning for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Mobility management for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Peer-to-peer networking for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Network architectures, protocols, and algorithms for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Ad hoc and sensor network support for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Resource sharing and service discovery for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Ubiquitous multimedia systems and applications
  • Ubiquitous audio/video streaming
  • Location-based ubiquitous multimedia services
  • Context-aware ubiquitous multimedia services
  • Tracking in ubiquitous environments
  • Data replication, migration and dissemination for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Operating system support for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Middleware design for ubiquitous multimedia
  • User device support for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Agent technologies for ubiquitous multimedia
Important Dates
Full papers due (special-issue submission): 31 August, 2009
Notification of acceptance/rejection/revision: 31 November, 2009
Revised manuscript due: 31 January, 2010
Final manuscript due: 31 March, 2010
