University of Essex
United Kingdom
E-mail: {lamoha,fleum}
Objectives and Motivation
The world of multimedia is undergoing an explosion in applications and techniques, which is fuelled by: globalization that
seeks to remove language barriers inherent in text; emerging technologies: imagery on LCD flat screens of all dimensions and
resolutions together with ubiquitous wireless technologies; and AI which facilitates access to petrabytes of multimedia data. In
other words, multimedia is critically affected by all the current global modalities and this Special Session aims to attract a
selection of papers on the processing tools, on the applications, or on both tools and applications for multimedia which reflect
the ‘glow’ of that explosion.
Continuing challenges need to be addressed in energy conservation; maintenance of the multimedia Quality of Experience;
adaptation to 5G technologies and the migration to the cloud; as well as the emergence of multimedia Big Data. “Multimedia
Tools or Applications” welcomes theoretical and/or empirical papers from all areas of research in respect to both soft
technologies such as compression, error control, indexing and searching of multimedia, steganography, and selective
encryption; and hard technologies such as mobile multimedia networks, audio/video sensor networks, and energy conserving
Because of the frenetic research activities centered upon the digital economy, which form and re-form their impacts upon
multimedia, there are multifarious challenges/issues, some of which have been outlined above and others of which will not have
been anticipated by this Session’s organizers. Papers are requested from, but are by no means limited to, the following topics:
• Multimedia security and forensics, e.g. selective encryption, key management, steganography, and watermarking
• Multimedia signal processing, e.g. source coding (compression) and codecs, channel coding (FEC), and digital rights
• Quality-of-Experience and Quality-of-Service as well as HCI aspects
• Multimedia Big Data, e.g. compression/storage, segmentation, remote indexing and searching.
• Green multimedia e.g. power-aware communication over Internet of Things/Internet of Everything
• Multimedia Telepresence, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality
• Multimedia intensive eHealthcare and telemedicine e.g. 3D imagery, remote diagnosis
• Applications of multimedia networking, e.g. interactive gaming, video conferencing, workgroup cooperation.
• Mobile multimedia networks, e.g. reducing jitter and latency, error resilience, and concealment, scalability
• Audio- and/or video-sensor networks for environmental monitoring, crisis response, and surveillance
• Cloud networks for multimedia applications, e.g. transcoding and filtering
