Mislav Grgic, Kresimir Delac, Mohammed Ghanbari

To be published by Springer Verlag in the series 
"Studies in Computational Intelligence"

DEADLINE (title and abstract): NOVEMBER 17, 2008
DEADLINE (full chapters): JANUARY 19, 2009


With the continuous increase in the volume of multimedia 
content in our everyday lives, multimedia signal processing 
is becoming a more and more important research area. It is 
the basis for creating content based on video, audio, images, 
and text. High quality multimedia content delivery and 
applications are making challenging demands on both 
processing (high computing power needed) and management 
(storing and delivering via various communication protocols) 
data. For all these reasons, existing signal processing and 
communication techniques are constantly being challenged and 
improved by employing advanced computational intelligence 

We have envisioned this book as a survey of multidisciplinary 
advances made in combining multimedia signal processing and 
communication techniques with various computational 
intelligence methods. Papers and studies which couple 
theoretical advances with real-life application scenarios are 
cordially invited. We shall also readily welcome high quality 
survey articles that emphasize the research and application 
of multimedia signal processing in a particular domain 
(medicine, entertainment industry etc).


Topics to be addressed in the book include, but are not 
limited to:

---> Multimedia Database Systems
---> Man-Machine Interfaces for Multimedia
---> Data Mining for Multimedia
---> Mobile Multimedia
---> Multimedia Content Analysis and Understanding
---> Multimedia Standards
---> Multimedia Information Systems
---> Multimedia Tools and Architectures
---> Multimedia Broadcasting Systems
---> Multimedia Communication Systems
---> Multimedia Networking and Protocols
---> Distributed Multimedia Systems
---> Content-Based Multimedia Retrieval
---> Multimedia Technologies and Games
---> Medical and Biomedical Applications
---> Virtual Environments and Multimedia Systems
---> Virtual Reality and Multimedia-Based Training and 
---> Broadband Multimedia
---> Watermarking and Security


Authors are kindly invited to send their proposals 
and chapters by e-mail to Prof. Mislav Grgic: 

Chapter proposals (title and abstract) are to be sent 
before NOVEMBER 17, 2008. All chapter proposals will be 
peer reviewed.

Full chapters will be expected by JANUARY 19, 2009. 
All submitted chapters will be peer reviewed.

Careful preparation of the manuscripts will help keep 
production time short and ensure satisfactory appearance 
of the finished book. Please prepare the manuscript as 
instructed in the Springer Verlag's author's guidelines 
for the series "Studies in Computational Intelligence" at:

The series "Studies in Computational Intelligence" (SCI) 
publishes new developments and advances in the various areas 
of computational intelligence - quickly and with a high 
quality. The intent is to cover the theory, applications, and 
design methods of computational intelligence, as embedded in 
the fields of engineering, computer science, physics and life 
science, as well as the methodologies behind them. The series 
contains monographs, lecture notes and edited volumes in 
computational intelligence spanning the areas of neural 
networks, connectionist systems, genetic algorithms, 
evolutionary computation, artificial intelligence, cellular 
automata, self-organizing systems, soft computing, fuzzy 
systems, and hybrid intelligent systems. Critical to both 
contributors and readers are the short publication time and 
world-wide distribution - this permits a rapid and broad 
dissemination of research results.
