Call For Paper: 

With the pervasive multimedia data (image, video, structured text, etc.) and the recent advances in networks and 

information technology, multimedia pervasive computing is having an unprecedented impact on every aspect of our life, 

from the personal use of multimedia mobile devices, such as iPod and PDA, to a wide spectrum of domains such as 

business and healthcare. The new multimedia standards (e.g., MPEG-21) facilitate the seamless integration of multiple 

modalities into interoperable multimedia frameworks, transforming the way people work and interact with multimedia 

data. These key technologies and multimedia solutions interact and collaborate with each other in an ever effective 

way, bringing along the multimedia revolution. Traditional multimedia research, which largely lies in signal 

processing and data communication, is now facing challenges posed by the new research trends such as multimedia 

semantic computing, multi-modal interaction and cross-mining, cooperative processing, new multimedia standards, 

Quality of Service (QoS), multimedia security, and social issues, which are just a few examples of the major research 

areas.  The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in multimedia semantic computing to discuss the 

state of the art of the research on semantic-based multimedia systems, present theoretical frameworks and practical 

implementations, and identify challenges and open issues in multimedia semantic modeling and integration. Multimedia 

semantic computing can be defined as "Computing with (machine processable) Descriptions of Content and Intentions" of 

multimedia data and has been gaining attentions in various applications including pervasive multimedia computing 

systems, multimedia delivery over the network, personalized multimedia information retrieval systems which adapt to 

the user's needs, integration of semantic content and schema from distributed multimedia sources so that the user 

sees a unified view of heterogeneous data, clustering and classification of semantically-tied information in 

different multimedia modalities, security issues in multimedia/hypertext systems, etc. We invite researchers from 

various disciplines to submit original research contributions to this workshop.  

IEEE PCMS 2011 will be held in conjunction with the 5th IEEE/FTRA International Conference on Multimedia and 

Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE 2011)

Instructions for authors: 
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on the above and related topics are solicited. Authors 

should submit a 6-page technical paper manuscript (in English) in double-column IEEE format including authors' names 

and affiliations, and a short abstract, following the document templates available on the MUE2011 paper submission 

web site Manuscripts should be submitted online to All papers should be in Adobe portable document format (PDF). Submissions 

should include the name and the email address of the corresponding author. 

All submitted papers will be refereed for quality, originality and relevance by the Program Committee. The
