 =======================================================================


IEEE Multimedia Systems is an annual conference organized with the
objective of bringing together researchers, developers, and
practitioners from academia and industry working in all facets of
multimedia, content authoring, processor technology, and systems
design. The conference serves as a forum for the dissemination of
state-of-the-art research, development, and implementations of
multimedia systems, technologies, and applications.

A key objective of IEEE Multimedia Systems'98 is to create a program
that achieves a balance between theory and practice, academia and
industry, systems/tools-oriented research and content creation. The
topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

        * Network and operating system support for multimedia
        * Quality-of-service control and scheduling algorithms
        * Multimedia file systems and databases
        * Audio and video compression
        * Sound and MIDI music, surround and around video
        * Set-top technologies and operating systems
        * Multimedia processor architecture
        * Computer-aided training and education, tele-medicine
        * Animation and morphing, fractals and rendering
        * Virtual reality
        * Mobile network architecture
        * Intelligent network applications
        * Internet and intranet applications
        * Web servers and services
        * Multimedia conferencing, internet phones, and mail
        * Electronic commerce
        * User interfaces
        * Authoring systems
        * Entertainment and games

IEEE Multimedia Systems'98 will include a single-track technical
program, a full day of tutorials, and several new exciting features
such as focussed technical workshops, exhibits/demonstrations, and
special multimedia showcase events in the evenings.

You are cordially invited to participate in IEEE Multimedia Systems'98
in one or more of the following ways.

TECHNICAL PAPERS

Technical papers are scheduled to be presented on June 29-July 1,
1998, and will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
Descriptions of original and significant research, the results of
empirical studies, and innovative applications in the area of
multimedia systems are solicited.

Please submit 5 copies of each paper. Submissions must use a minimum of
10-point typeface, and should not exceed 15 single-spaced pages
(preferably double sided), including figures, tables, and
references. Where applicable, submission of prototype demonstrations
or videotape presentations are encouraged to supplement the
papers. For each paper, please also submit a cover page containing the
title of the paper, author names and their affiliations, the topic
area(s), and an abstract. The cover page should be submitted in plain
text format by e-mail to: [log in to unmask]

PANELS

Panel presentations are scheduled for June 29-July 1, 1998. Topics
that examine innovative, controversial, or otherwise provocative
issues are being sought. Proposals for panels should be limited to 2
pages and include a 2-paragraph publishable biography of the panel
organizer and the number of panelists.  Please send an e-mail to
[log in to unmask] for more information.

TUTORIALS

Tutorials are scheduled for June 28, 1998.  Topics for both novice and
seasoned professionals are solicited.  Tutorial proposals (at most 5
pages) should include a description of the subject matter, and a
2-paragraph publishable biography of the instructors.  Please send an e-mail
to [log in to unmask] for more information.

DEMONSTRATIONS

Demonstrations are scheduled for June 29-July 1, 1998. Working
systems in technical and artistic categories are solicited.
Submissions (at most 2 pages) should include a description of the
demonstration requirements, a 2-paragraph publishable biography of the
demonstration leader, the number of people involved, and demonstration
samples on CD-ROM, the World Wide Web, or a VHS NTSC video, as
appropriate. Please send an e-mail to [log in to unmask] for more
information.


WORKSHOPS

Workshops are scheduled for June 29-July 1, 1998, focusing on
techniques, tools and breakthroughs that will carry members of the
multimedia research and development community and field practitioners
into the 21st century. Each workshop plans to relate to a common area of
technology and present the innovation(s) therein. Competing technical
approaches will be organized for each session to promote interaction
with the audience.  Workshop proposals should include a clear
statement of objectives, the target audience, and a 2-paragraph
publishable biography for the workshop leader.  Please send an e-mail to
[log in to unmask] for more information.


EXHIBITS

The IEEE Multimedia Systems'98 will offer multimedia product vendors
and publishers an opportunity to interface with more than 400
conference participants worldwide. Displays and demonstrations of
product lines may include (but are not limited to) technologies and
research prototypes as well as commercial products.  Please send an e-mail
