International Workshop on Intelligent Multimedia Computing and Communications (IWIMCC)
Multimedia data are used more and more widely and frequently in our daily life, e.g., multimedia search, videoconferencing, visual telephone, YouTube, IPTV, IP Cam, video surveillance, etc. Nearly most of these applications need multimedia computing and communication techniques that process multimedia data into a proper semantic level and then send it from one end to another end and keep the properties of robustness, efficiency and security. Here, the robustness denotes the ability to survive transmission errors or noises, the efficiency denotes the time cost of transmission processes, and the security denotes the protection of the transmitted media content. Recently, various intelligent computing techniques are invented, such as neural networks, fuzzy theory, evolutionary algorithm, and machine learning, which bring significant performance improvements to practical applications. For multimedia computing, these techniques can push applications to be closer to users' semantic meanings, e.g. the semantic based multimedia retrieval and specific human action detection, etc. For multimedia communication, these techniques can enhance multimedia adaptation techniques to adjust the multimedia transmission protocols to compliant with the network’s various situations. This workshop will be held in conjunction with the 7th International ICST Conference on Communications and Networking in China, Kunming on 7 August 2012. It provides a premium forum for discussions among leading experts from the academia and industry about hot topics of research and development in the emerging field of intelligent multimedia computing and communications. We solicit high quality technical papers that describe original and unpublished research on intelligent multimedia computing and communication. Submissions of high quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.
