Published by Springer-LNEE (indexed by EI and SCOPUS)


The new multimedia standards (for example, MPEG-21) facilitate the seamless integration of multiple modalities into interoperable
multimedia frameworks, transforming the way people work and interact with multimedia data. These key technologies and multimedia solutions interact
and collaborate with each other in increasingly effective ways, contributing to the multimedia revolution and having a significant impact across
a wide spectrum of consumer, business, healthcare, education, and governmental domains.

This conference provides an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in the area of multimedia
and ubiquitous environment including models and systems, new directions, novel applications associated with the utilization and acceptance of ubiquitous computing devices and systems.

The goals of this conference are to provide a complete coverage of the areas outlined and to bring together the researchers from
academic and industry as well as practitioners to share ideas, challenges, and solutions relating to the multifaceted aspects of this field.
