                                       CALL FOR PAPERS

                            IEEE International Workshop on
                             KNOWLEDGE MEDIA NETWORKING

                             Date: October 22-24, 2003
                             Location: NTT Labs, Tokyo, Japan

Paper Submission Deadline: July 1st, 2003

New integrated  services are emerging from the rapid technological
advances in networking,
multi-agent, virtual environments, media and  broadcasting technologies.
Knowledge  Media
Spaces would couple models, knowledge, data, instruments, and
intellectual activity across
space, time, and disciplinary boundaries.
Metadata could be exploited to develop the  semantic web  for
multimedia web information resources. Computational  devices  and agents
could become part
of furniture, walls, and clothing; physical space provides a sense of
place that would be
augmented towards  knowledge  space.  The space must precisely
understand  its devices and
their situation,in particular the computations they are performing, in
order to understand
what individuals in the space are doing.

This workshop would  provide a  forum  for researchers  and
practitioners involved in the
design and development of  knowledge  media  networking  spaces,
meta-data  architectures,
knowledge  based  systems and  3D media architectures. It is expected
that the workshop will
promote a very intensive interaction among those attending it.

The Workshop Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society
Press. Papers up to six
pages or position  papers of  two to three pages  (including figures,
tables and references)
should be  submitted as PDF or PostScript files. Papers should include a
title, the name and
affiliation  of authors, an abstract of up to 150 words and no more than
eight keywords in
two-column IEEE format. Submissions will be peer reviewed. Papers should
be submitted to
[log in to unmask], [log in to unmask], or to
[log in to unmask]

Topics of interests include , but are not limited:
- Architectural aspects of designing knowledge media spaces (3D virtual
presence, Internet,
agents, mobility, VRML, MPEG4, MPEG7, TVanytime)
- Metadata architectures:  mining, extracting, indexing,  managing,
modeling, recording,
accessing, utilizing information resources
- Sensors,  mobile devices networking, ad-hoc  networking
applications,  self-organizing
systems, P2P systems
- Interconnection of heterogeneous communities, Ontologies, resource
sharing, Quality of Service
- What kind of rules, artifacts, conventions and infrastructure must be
providedto help
community members self organize and manage their affairs, increase
knowledge bandwidth,
develop a feeling of social awareness?
- Applications: Entertainment, e-Healthcare, e-Commerce, e-Communities,
Virtual Universities,
Cultural Heritage
