Call for Papers: Ubiquitous Multimedia Networks and Services

A special issue of International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering

As contemporary computing and communication devices foster human interactions in cyberspace, social events are taking place ubiquitously in the form of multimodal adaptive interactions between participants. Cutting edge interactive systems therefore focus on how to deliver multimodal media in different contexts of use to humans in a way that offers better quality of experience.

To achieve this there are a great deal of challenging problems yet to be solved, mainly in how to bring together ICT technologies for context adaptation, inter-device interaction, and media/data communication for the wellbeing of humans. This special issue strives to foster state-of-the-art research pertaining to the area of ubiquitous multimedia networks and services, covering various areas of computation/communication infrastructure, middleware, human-computer interaction, and applications for ubiquitous multimedia.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Sensor networks/RFID for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Heterogeneous infrastructure for ubiquitous multimedia
  • 3G and advanced communication techniques
  • Storage and indexing for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Cross-network communication and servers for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Multimedia embedded systems
  • Context-aware multimedia
  • Computational intelligence for ubiquitous multimedia
  • Semantic web and knowledge grids
  • Multimedia content protection and security
  • Privacy and security in ubiquitous environments
  • Plasticity and dynamic composition of user interfaces
  • Multimodal interaction
  • Social networks
  • Ubiquitous multimedia services for commerce
  • Ubiquitous multimedia services for games
  • Ubiquitous multimedia services for healthcare
  • Ubiquitous multimedia services for smart homes
Important Dates
Submission deadline: 15 December, 2011
Acceptance notification: 15 February, 2012
Final paper due: 15 April, 2012
