Call For Papers

Today with the explosive growth of multimedia (MM) computing, we are observing the trend of using various multimedia tools, techniques and services in providing and managing e-health services ubiquitously. These services and technologies facilitate doctors and other health care professionals to have immediate access to e-health information for efficient decision making as well as better treatment. The realization of multimedia services for e-health introduces several challenges. The passion for media results in a large number of Internet traffic that impose to make a tradeoff between QoS (Quality of Service) and cost in media network design for health care. Content distribution network (CDN) can be utilized to cache e-health media contents like real-time medical images, videos etc. However, lack of dynamic resource provisioning at CDN nodes limit effectiveness for the demand of computing power, storage space and network bandwidth to better support e-health initiatives. One potential solution for addressing all aforementioned issues is the introduction of cloud-based multimedia service for e-health.

Cloud computing fits well as an enabling technology in this scenario as it presents a flexible stack of computing, storage and software services at low cost. The cloud-based media services can provide a high quality of experience for physicians, clinics, and other caregivers anytime and from anywhere seamlessly. So this workshop strives to foster state-of-the-art researches, methodologies and systems in the design, development, deployment and innovative use of cloud-centric multimedia services, tools and technologies for e-health. Authors are solicited to submit complete unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to: Some topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:

· QoS/QoE provisioning for cloud-centric multimedia services in health care

· Architecture, service and application of cloud-based multimedia services in healthcare

· Dynamic resource allocation for multimedia health data processing in clouds

· Multimedia cloud service composition in healthcare

· Cost effective media data processing and management for e-health

· Health care privacy management in cloud-based MM service

· Health media streaming with multimedia cloud

· Intelligent e-health multimedia service computing in clouds

· E-health multimedia information management using cloud computing

· Decision support system for cloud based multimedia services for healthcare

· E-health media contents indexing and retrieval in cloud
