Recent advances in computing, networking, and ICT devices such as laptops, iPods, personal digital assistants (PDA), cellular phones and iPhones have resulted in the development of intelligent context aware multimedia applications. The context aware technologies such as pervasive and ubiquitous computing are creating a revolution in multimedia applications which has a significant impact across consumers, enterprises, healthcare, culture, agriculture, and educational domains. However several challenges still remain in the context of multimedia retrieval such as indexing, querying, searching, retrieving, streaming, personalizing and mining multimedia data.

The main aim of this special issue is to bring out a collection of efficient techniques and applications in the area of context aware multimedia computing. Specifically the special issue will address new methods and techniques for multimedia retrieval that are scalable and context aware. It will also offer efficient ideas and methods to deliver and distribute multimedia content and services over wired and wireless networks at large scale, considering protocols, standards and security issues. Finally, we are also interested to report novel applications that exploit unique advantages which are offered by context aware multimedia computing, including telemedicine, home entertainment, games, surveillance, e-health and e-culture.

Subject Coverage

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Scalable techniques for multimedia indexing, retrieval and mining
Scalable multimedia personalization, streaming and delivery
