DMS 2015 Call For Papers

The Twenty First International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems
Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, Canada
August 31 to September 1, 2015


The main theme of the 21st International Conference on Distributed
Multimedia Systems (DMS2015) is Sentient Multimedia Systems, which are
distributed systems capable of actively interacting with the environment by
gathering, processing, interpreting, storing and retrieving multimedia
information originated from sensors, robots, actuators, websites and other
information sources. The conference organizers seek contributions of high
quality papers, panels or tutorials, addressing any novel aspect of
sentient multimedia systems 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 and JVLC journal. 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.

An extra large special issue of JVLC

The Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (JVLC), which is indexed by
SCI, EI, DBLP, Scopus and other indexers, will publish around forty
selected papers of DMS/VLC/DET2015 in the December 2015 extra large special

authors and conference attendees. Selected papers will go through three
rounds of reviews so that they can be further improved to meet the standard
of JVLC.
