Journal of Communications (JCM)
Special Issue on Multimedia Communications, Networking and Applications

With the advancement of multimedia signal processing/compression technology and the wide deployment of wired/wireless networks, there is an increasing demand for multimedia communication services. However, advanced multimedia processing often attempts to optimize the coding efficiency and introduces higher dependency between the processed data, resulting in a fundamental challenge to robust data communication.
On the other hand, modern communication networks often exploit multi-dimensional diversity, such as user, frequency, and location, and finer granularity of resources, such as power and spectrum, for multimedia communications that have seldom been explored in multimedia signal processing. Therefore, we are facing unprecedented challenges in multimedia communications, networking, and applications. Many critical issues need to be addressed to improve the end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) for multimedia networks, for example, how to deploy the cross-layer design methodology that leverages the characteristics of multimedia signal processing and communication networks, how to optimize the QoS subject to available resources, and, in particular, how to allocate resources to individual nodes and sources when a network involves multiple nodes and sources of multimedia.


The aim of this special issue is to bring together the state-of-the-art research contributions that address the various aspects of multimedia communications, networking, and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Cross-layer architecture design for multimedia transmission
* Content/Network-aware cross-layer design and optimization
* QoS-driven resource management, scheduling, and admission control
* Performance evaluation of cross-layer multimedia transmission design
* Joint source and network coding and decoding
* Cross-layer design for P2P streaming
* Ad hoc and infrastructure-based overlay network communication
* Cross-layer design for multimedia sensor networks
* Distributed wireless video communications
* Multimedia delivery over wireless mesh network
* Noncollaborative/collaborative resource management for multi-stream transmission
* Cooperative multimedia communications in multihop wireless networks
* Error resilience and error concealment techniques for multimedia communications
