*Scope*

Successfully deploying multimedia services and applications in mobile
environments requires adopting an interdisciplinary approach where
multimedia, networking and physical layer issues are addressed jointly.
Content features analysis and coding, media access control, multimedia flow
and error control, cross-layer optimization, Quality of Experience (QoE),
media cloud as well as mobility management and security protocols are
research challenges that need to be carefully examined when designing new
mobile media architectures. We also need to put a great effort in designing
applications that take into account the way the user perceives the overall
quality of the provided service.

Within this scope, MobiMedia is intended to provide a unique international
forum for researchers from industry and academia, working on multimedia
coding, mobile communications and networking fields, to study new
technologies, applications and standards. Original unpublished
contributions are solicited that can improve the knowledge and practice in
the integrated design of efficient technologies and the relevant provision
of advanced mobile multimedia applications.



*Highlights*

The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading
community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in
the field of ICT.

All accepted papers will be published by ACM.

Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services:
DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier
Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital
