*Description*

The explosively growing momentum behind worldwide broadband deployment and
the emerging convergence of voice, image, video and data services offer the
base for various modern multimedia applications and services such as mobile
TV, multimedia messenger and blog, social networking, video conferencing,
Internet gaming, interactive TV, IPTV, and multimedia visualization,
navigation, management, search and retrieval. The advances of computing and
communication over wired and wireless networks and new technologies,
ranging from multimedia coding, network infrastructure, content
distribution protocols, and quality of service (QoS) management to
post-processing and analysis, have stimulated more diversified multimedia
applications and services.



The purpose of this workshop is to provide a professional forum for
industry and academic researchers from around the world to present their
state-of-the-art accomplishments, exchange latest experiences, and explore
future directions for multimedia computing and communications. As the scope
of multimedia computing and communications is very broad, we focus this
year on some selected topics such as image/video processing, 3DTV, Internet
HCI, mobile multimedia, and soft-biometrics. Topics covered include, but
are not limited to, the following:



   - Multimedia content analysis, representation, and understanding
   - Multimedia management in social networking environment
   - Multimedia data mining and fusing, indexing and retrieval
   - Sensorial data processing for interactive games
   - Content, user, computation, and network aware media engineering
   - Multimedia summarization and abstraction
   - Intelligent audio-video surveillance and other security-related
   applications
   - Multimedia and multimodal user interfaces and interaction models
   - Soft-biometrics from multimedia computing
   - Multimedia in mobile and smart environment
   - Internet human computer interaction
   - Image/video processing and analysis
   - Image filtering and enhancement, such as noise reduction, edge
   enhancement, contrast enhancement, color processing
   - Image restoration, multiframe image restoration
   - Image/video format conversion including de-interlacing, scaling and
   super-resolution, and frame rate conversion
   - Motion detection and estimation
   - Image/video segmentation and tracking
   - Image/video stabilization
   - Stereoscopic and 3D processing
   - 3DTV



Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers limited to 6
pages (5 pages + up to one page at extra expense). Please see the Author
Information page for submission guidelines in the ICCCN 2012 Call for
Workshop Papers. <http://www.icccn.org/icccn12/workshops.html>
