Call For Papers

Multimedia Techniques for Device and Ambient Intelligence MTDAI
special session in

2nd International Symposium on
Intelligent Interactive Multimedia Systems and Services


Journal Publications

We are pleased to announce that authors of outstanding papers presented
at MTDAI09 be invited to submit extended versions of their papers
for a Special Edition of the Journal of Multimedia Tools and Applications,
published by Springer-Verlag.

Ambient Intelligence is a vision of the future where we shall be surrounded by electronic
environments, sensitive and responsive to people. In the ambient intelligence view, devices work
in concert to support people in carrying out their everyday life activities in an easy and natural way
using information and intelligence that is hidden in the network connecting these devices and in
the device itself.

In some sense Ambient Intelligence technologies combine concepts of ubiquitous computing and
intelligent systems putting humans in the centre of technological developments.
In general Ambient Intelligence implies Device Intelligence. In fact an interesting trend of
development regards distributed Ambient Intelligence. In this scenario the device capacity of elaborate
and extract sophisticated information or improve the general quality of the extracted information from the
environment is crucial.
In these fields of research a crucial role is played by multimedia information processing and in particular
by imaging technologies.
The MTDAI session is dedicated to research on the technologies used to improve the intelligence
capacity of multimedia devices. In particular the MTDAI deals with technologies related to Imaging,
Image Processing and Computer Vision.
The session is aims to bring together top researchers both from academia and industry to stimulate
research and create interdisciplinary collaboration links allowing the exploration of new frontiers
in the area of ambient and device intelligence.
The MTDAI will focus on recent developments in digital signal processing including evolutions
in audiovisual signal processing, analysis, coding and authentication, and retrieval techniques.

* Privacy, trust accountability and dependability
* Cognition, intelligence, ambience, adaptivity, self-organization and evolution
* Multimedia and intelligent agents


Submission information:

Papers for consideration for the conference may be submitted to an Invited Session on a specific topic.
Papers should not exceed 10 pages in Springer format.
Papers longer than this will be subject to an additional charge.
Shorter papers will be acceptable if they adequately convey the material to be described,
and are not so short as to be trivial or lacking in depth.
The papers will be scheduled for presentation either orally or by poster, depending
on their attributes, author preferences and referee recommendations. Please note that
poster presentations are regarded as being of equal importance and status to oral presentations.

Important dates

Paper submission due: January 12, 2009
Notification of Acceptance: 23 February 2009
Final paper publication files to be uploaded by: 23 March 2009
Conference sessions: 16, 17 July 2009
