13th International Symposium on Multimedia Applications and Processing (MMAP'20)

Sofia, Bulgaria, 6 - 9 September, 2020

Committee

Organized by

Software Engineering Department, Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics, University of Craiova, Romania "Multimedia Applications Development" Research Centre

Background and Goals

Multimedia and information have become ubiquitous on the web and communication services, creating new challenges for detection, recognition, indexing, access, search, retrieval, automated understanding, processing and generation of several applications which are using image, signal or various multimedia technologies.

Recent advances in pervasive computers, networks, telecommunications, and information technology, along with the proliferation of multimedia mobile devices - such as laptops, iPods, personal digital assistants (PDA), and smartphones - have stimulated the rapid development of intelligent applications. These key technologies by using Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Computational Intelligenceare creating a recent multimedia revolution which will have significant impact across a wide spectrum of consumer, business, healthcare, educational and governmental domains. Yet many challenges remain.

We welcome papers covering innovative applications, practical usage but also theoretical aspects of the above mentioned trends. The key objective of this sessionis to gather results from academia and industry partners working in all subfields of multimedia and language: content design, development, authoring and evaluation, systems/tools oriented research and development. We are also interested in looking at service architectures, protocols, and standards for multimedia communications - including middleware - along with the related security issues. Finally, we encourage submissions describing work on novel applications that exploit the unique set of advantages including home-networked entertainment and games. However, innovative contributions which don't exactly fit into these areas are also welcomed to this session.

The Multimedia Applications and Processing (MMAP) will provide an opportunity for researchers and professionals to discuss present and future challenges as well as potential collaboration for future progress in the field. The MMAP Symposium welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all aspects of multimedia domain ranging from concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and innovative applications. MMAP invites original previously unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference.
Papers acceptance and publication will be judged based on their relevance to the symposium theme, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions.
