Call for Papers

Now-a-days, multimedia sensor, services and technologies play an important role in seamlessly providing and managing health, sports and other services to anyone, anywhere and anytime. Media sensors are usually equipped with cameras, microphones, and other devices that produce media (audio, video, image and text) content and services. Such services and technologies facilitate caregiver and related professionals to have immediate access to required information for efficient decision making. Since media sensing technology development is growing, many research opportunities are emerging to unveil in a broad spectrum of application domains.
This special issue invites high-quality unpublished research articles on media sensing technologies, research concepts and methods for health care, sports and other novel applications - articulating new perspectives highlights, open issues and challenges. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
• Cloud media sensing for health-care and sports
• Multimedia signal acquisition based on compressive sensing
• Electronic platforms for health-care applications
• Wireless communication with/within swarms of implantable devices.
• Innovative circuits for communication with medical instrumentation
• Media sensing for serious games
• Resource allocation in multimedia health care
• Media sensor-based voice detection
• Bio-metric authentication for media health-care applications
• Media sensor data aggregation
• Multimedia enhanced learning, training and simulation for health
• QoS/QoE for media sensor-based applications
• Data fusion in multimedia sensor network
• Security and privacy in media sensor network
• Emerging media sensing protocols, surveys, applications and new research approaches
