Call For Papers

Today, the design process for high-end multimedia systems has become a crucial
bottleneck due to the increasing complexity of both the software and the underlying
hardware, coupled with shortened time-to-market pressures. While there has been a
notable growth in the use and applications of multimedia systems and in the evolution of
system-on-chip design technology, there are still enormous opportunities for improving
design productivity in this domain. Given this backdrop, the aim of this workshop is to
bring together people from different multimedia-related research communities (e.g,
software, architectures, real-time systems, DSP, compilers, multimedia applications) who
have worked separately, but did not interact sufficiently to address the challenges facing
the design of hardware and software for multimedia systems.
After a very successful debut in 2003, consolidated in successive years, we hope that this
7th edition will present a good opportunity for specialists from academia and industry to
contribute to this exciting research area. The program will bring together original work
from both, academic and industrial research and development. As in the previous editions,
papers will be accepted for 30-min oral presentation followed by interactive poster
All accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings (CD-ROM form) to be
published by the IEEE.
A special issue of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS) with the
best papers from ESTIMedia '08 will appear later this year.
Areas of Interest (but not restricted to)
- Specification and modeling of multimedia systems
- Multimedia systems design methodologies and case studies
- Circuits and architectures for embedded multimedia architectures
- Multimedia processors and reconfigurable architectures
- Emerging trends (Systems-on-Chip, Networks-on-Chip, Game applications, etc.)
- Validation and verification
- Software optimization and compiler techniques
- Timing aspects of media streams
- Scheduling of media processing
- Resource and QoS management methods
- Temporal estimation and protection of media streams
- Real-time kernels, OS and middleware support

Paper Submission Guidelines
Both research and application-oriented papers are welcome. Research papers should
describe original research, such as new ideas, promising approaches and experiences with
practical systems. Application-oriented papers should describe interesting technical
aspects of real-life applications, prototypes, experiences, and standards. All papers should
be submitted electronically via the workshop webpage. Papers must be in PDF format
and should include (1) title, (2) authors and affiliation, (3) e-mail address of the contact
author. Submissions must be limited to 6 pages, single-spaced, double-column IEEE
format with 10-point fonts. Papers deviating significantly from these paper size and font
constraints may be rejected without review. All submitted papers should have original
content that has not been previously published in other conferences or journals.
Any questions regarding the submission process may be directed to the TPC Co-Chairs
