The 17th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems
(URL: )

Convitto della Calza ( ) Florence, Italy
August 18 to 20, 2011

With today's proliferation of multimedia data (e.g., images, 
animations, video, and sound), comes the challenge of using such 
information to facilitate data analysis, modeling, presentation, 
interaction and programming, particularly for end-users who are 
domain experts, but not IT professionals. The main theme of the 17th 
International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2011) 
is multimedia inspired computing. The conference organizers seek 
contributions of high quality papers, panels or tutorials, addressing 
any novel aspect of computing (e.g., programming language or 
environment, data analysis, scientific visualization, etc.) that 
significantly benefits from the incorporation/integration of 
multimedia data (e.g., visual, audio, pen, voice, image, etc.), for 
presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. 
Both research and case study papers or demonstrations describing 
results in research area as well as industrial development cases and 
experiences are solicited. The use of prototypes and demonstration 
video for presentations is encouraged.

The DMS conference is closely coordinated with the International 
Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering, the 
Journal of Visual Languages and Computing and the International 
Journal of Distance Education Technologies. Usually the best ranked 
papers from the conference, after rigorous reviews, extensive 
revisions and further enhancements, will appear in one or more 
special issues of the above journals. Papers suggested for the 
special issue(s) will be reviewed by external reviewers following the 
standard procedure of review stipulated by the respective journal.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
    Distributed Multimedia Technology
    media coding, acquisition and standards
    QoS and Quality of Experience control
    digital rights management and conditional access solutions
    privacy and security issues
    mobile devices and wireless networks

    Distributed Multimedia Models and Systems
    human-computer interaction
    languages for distributed multimedia
    multimedia software engineering issues
    semantic computing and processing
    media grid computing, cloud and virtualization
    web services and multi-agent systems
    multimedia databases and information systems
    multimedia indexing and retrieval systems
    multimedia and cross media authoring
    Applications of Distributed Multimedia Systems
    collaborative and social multimedia systems and solutions
    humanities and cultural heritage applications, management and fruition
    multimedia preservation

Information for Authors:
Papers must be written in English. An electronic version (Postscript, 
PDF, or MS Word format) of the full paper should be submitted using 
the following URL:
(submission site will be open Jan 1, 2011). Manuscript must include a 
200-word abstract and no more than 6 pages of IEEE double column text 
(include figures and references). All submissions must not be 
published or under consideration for publication in a journal or in a 
conference with proceedings. Papers will be evaluated based on 
originality, significance, technical soundness and clarify of 
exposition. Depending upon the results of evaluation a paper may be 
accepted as regular paper (6 pages), short paper (4 pages) or poster 
(poster presentation only).

The following workshops are being planned:
