SITIS 2012 - The 8th International
Conference on

			In cooperation with IEEE Technical Committee on
				Multimedia Computing (pending)
		                November 25-29, 2012, SORRENTO - Naples,



The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used to
represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging from
signal, image, and multimedia data to traditional structured data and semi
structured data found in the web.  
SITIS 2012 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on
research activities centered on two main tracks:

- The focus of the track on "Internet Based Systems and Computing" (IBCS) is
on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for
information management. Novel architectures are being proposed to allow
resource sharing and distributed processing of data with increasing
complexity. Cloud computing, peer to peer computing, mobile information
systems, semantic based applications, and decision support systems are a few
examples of these applications and systems. 

- The track "Signal & Image Technologies" (SIT) focuses on recent
developments in digital signal processing and pays particular attention to
evolutions in audiovisual signal processing, analysis, coding and
authentication, and retrieval techniques.
