We apologize if you received multiple copies of this Call for Papers 

The 2011 International Workshop on Pervasive Computing and Multimedia Systems (PCMS 2011) 

Held in conjunction with the 5th IEEE/FTRA International Conference on 
Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE 2011) 

Submission Deadline:    January 31st, 2011

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) 

 Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: 
     * semantic content analysis 
     * semantic integration 
     * multimedia retrieval (image, video, audio, etc.) 
     * multimodal data analysis and interaction      
     * semantic media annotation

     * human-centered multimedia computing 
     * image/video/audio databases 
     * multimedia data mining 
     * multimedia data storage 
     * social network analysis from multimedia 
     * multimedia data modeling 
     * distributed multimedia systems 
     * multimedia data visualization 
     * semantic media adaptation and personalization

     * semantic based Internet data streaming and delivery

     * Multimedia streaming and networking 
     * multimedia assurance and security 
     * semantic enabled multimedia applications  
     * novel applications 
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 on or before the deadline date of January 31st, 2011. 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 

acceptance/rejection of the papers will be based on the review results. Accepted papers will be published in the 

workshop proceedings together with the proceedings of IEEE/FTRA International Conference on Multimedia and 

Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE 2011) and will be included in IEEE Explorer. 

Based on the quality of the manuscripts, selected papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of 

International Journal of Multimedia Data Engineering and Management (IJMDEM).
