CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Multimedia Computing
in conjunction with the International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed
Processing and Application (ISPA-06) ,Sorrento, Italy, December 1-4, 2006
For the last decades Multimedia computing has emerged as an important
technology to generate content based on images, video, audio, graphics,
and text. Furthermore, the recent new development represented by High
Definition and Interactive television will generate important computing
problems connected with the creation, processing and management of
Multimedia content. Dealing with HD Multimedia content (image, video and
sound) will generate a huge volume of data to process which can lead in
a natural way to parallel and distributed computing. Moreover, the
inherent data parallelism of Multimedia content data makes this type of
computing a natural application area for parallel and distributed
This workshop aims to merge the recent research achievements in
developing new theories, algorithms, architectures, systems and
integrated multimedia platforms that exploit parallel and distributed
TOPICS OF INTEREST (but not limited to the following):
- Parallel and distributed algorithms for multimedia.
- Parallel and distributed architectures for multimedia.
- Parallel multimedia computing servers.
- Multimedia content creation, processing, and management using
parallel and distributed architectures.
- Parallel processing architectures of multimedia set-top boxes.
- Multimedia agent technology and parallel processing.
