Smartphones (or smart mobile devices) have now truly become a ubiquitous
computing device, a computer that the late Mark Weiser envisioned in his
ubiquitous computing manifesto. Many applications that could only have been
dreamed of, have now become a reality due to the improving computing,
sensing, display and networking capabilities of smartphones. With
applications ranging from productivity, entertainment, enterprise, social
networking, communications and mixed reality, the smartphone is the 'swiss
army knife' of it all. However, there are still many untapped elements and
unlimited possibilities that smartphones can provide next-generation
interactive systems with more intuitive and intelligent functions and
applications that have not been explored much in detail, especially through
the use of computing, sensing and mobile capabilities of the smartphones.
Making uses of cyber and physical data accessible by smartphones, new
cyber-physical interactive technologies and systems can be designed and
integrated to create novel functionalities, methods and intelligences to
interact with humans for better social experiences, and more intelligent
services and creative applications, such as recommender systems,
advertising platforms, gaming applications that are interactive to the user
smartphones on the spot in a physical environment and situation.
This special issue of ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing,
Communications and Applications provides an opportunity to attract and
bring together mobile computing, cyber-physical systems, ubiquitous
computing, social computing, wireless networking and multimedia
communications researchers along with user interface designers and
practitioners with diverse backgrounds to contribute papers on theoretical,
practical, and methodological issues on next-generation interactive
technologies, systems and applications using smartphones.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):
- Cyber-physical interactions with smartphones
- Social computing with smartphones for interactive media
- Cloud computing on smartphones for multimedia
- Cyber-physical interactive media systems using smartphones
- Augmented-reality interactive media on smartphones
- Ubiquitous media networking with smartphones and environments
- Cyber-physical sensing with media applications in smartphones
- Mining cyber-physical world for interactive media using smartphones
- Integrating social context and social media through smartphones
- Case studies of novel interactive media applications and services using

Manuscripts should be submitted through ManuscriptCentral (at by selecting the Manuscript Type
"Smartphone-based Interactive Technologies, Systems and Applications".
Submissions should contain original material that has not been previously
published and is not currently under review by another journal. Published
conference papers must be technically extended with the requirements
specified in TOMM. For details about the formats, re-submission and other
requirements, please refer to the authors guide at the journal website at After you submit your paper, the system
will assign a manuscript number to your submission, please email this
number to [log in to unmask] together with the title of
your paper.
