                      TOPIC 11 - DESCRIPTION

Efficient resource management in service of multimedia data is one of
the most important challenges of the next decade. A number of novel and
hard questions arise, which can be answered only by applying techniques
of parallel and/or distributed computing. The scope of this topic
embraces issues from high-performance coding and retrieving over
parallel architectures for multimedia servers, databases and information
systems (including grids), up to highly distributed architectures in
heterogeneous, wired and wireless networks. "Proof of concept"
implementations and case studies are particularly solicited.

Key focus areas are as follows

High-Performance Multimedia, in particular:
- Parallel and distributed algorithms for fast coding and retrieval of
  multimedia data and metadata
- Architectures and algorithms for multimedia servers, databases and
  information systems (including grids)
Distributed Multimedia, in particular:
- Architectures and algorithms for QoS- and context-awareness in
  heterogeneous (wired and wireless) networks
- Distributed Architectures related to MPEG, including novel ideas
  regarding MPEG-21 "Universal Media Access"

                    MISSION STATEMENT - EURO-PAR

Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to
the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and distributed
computing. Each year, the conference normally attracts more than 300
participants coming from universities, research centres and industry.
Euro-Par 2005 will represent 16 topics
( in the categories of
hardware, software, algorithms and applications, and will also include
tutorials, invited talks, and co-located workshops.
