Call For Papers

The new multimedia standards (for example, MPEG-21) facilitate the seamless integration of
multiple modalities into interoperable multimedia frameworks, transforming the way people
work and interact with multimedia data. These key technologies and multimedia solutions
interact and collaborate with each other in increasingly effective ways, contributing to the
multimedia revolution and having a significant impact across a wide spectrum of consumer,
business, healthcare, education, and governmental domains.

Moreover, the emerging mobile computing and ubiquitous networking technologies enable users
to access fully broadband mobile applications and new services anytime and everywhere. The
continuous efforts have been dedicated to research and development in this wide area including
wireless mobile networks, ad-hoc and sensor networks, smart user devices and advanced sensor
devices, mobile and ubiquitous computing platforms, and new applications and services including
location-based, context-aware, or social networking services.

This conference provides an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent
progress in the area of multimedia and ubiquitous environment including models and systems, new
directions, novel applications associated with the utilization and acceptance of ubiquitous
computing devices and systems. MUE 2012 is the next event in a series of highly successful the
International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering MUE-11 (Crete, Greece, June
2011), MUE-10 (Cebu, Philippines, August 2010), MUE-09 (Qingdao, China, June 2009), MUE-08 (Busan,
Korea, April 2008), and MUE-07 (Seoul, Korea, April 2007).
