The rapid growth of information on the Web, its ubiquity and pervasiveness makes the www the biggest repository. While the volume of information may be useful, it creates new challenges for information retrieval, identification, understanding, selection, etc. Investigating new forms of platforms, tools, principles offered by Semantic Web opens another door to enable humans programs, or agents to understand what records are about, and allows integration between domain-dependent and media-dependent knowledge. Multimedia information has always been part of the Semantic Web paradigm, but requires substantial effort to integrate both.
The new technological achievements in terms of speed and the quality of expanding and creating a vast variety of multimedia services like voice, email, short messages, Internet access, m-commerce, to mobile video conferencing, streaming video and audio.
Large and specialized databases together with these technological achievements have brought true mobile multimedia experiences to mobile customers. Multimedia imply adoption of new technologies and challenges to operators and infrastructure builders in terms of ensuring fast and reliable services for improving the quality of web information retrieval.
Huge amounts of multimedia data are increasingly available. The knowledge of spatial and/or temporal phenomena becomes critical for many applications, which requires techniques for the processing, analysis, search, mining, and management of multimedia data.
MMEDIA 2010 aims to provide an international forum by researchers, students, and professionals for presenting recent research results on advances in multimedia, mobile and ubiquitous multimedia and to bring together experts from both academia and industry for the exchange of ideas and discussion on future challenges in multimedia fundamentals, mobile and ubiquitous multimedia, multimedia ontology, multimedia user-centered perception, multimedia services and applications, and mobile multimedia.
The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas. All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions.
Fundamentals in multimedia
Multimedia content and modeling
Self-organizing multimedia architectures
Multimedia content-based retrieval and analysis
Perception and cognition for multimedia users
Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
Multimedia security and content protection
Multimedia control and management
