Fourth International Conference on
Intelligent Multimedia Computing and Networking

July 21-26, 2005
Salt Lake City Marriott City Center
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

In conjunction with
Eighth Joint Conference on Information Sciences
(JCIS 2005)

Theme and Scope

In the last few years we have witnessed an explosive growth of multimedia computing, communication and applications. The few key technologies interact in an interesting and yet useful way, bringing along the multimedia revolution. This revolution is transforming the way people live, work, and interact with each other, and is impacting the way businesses, government services, education, entertainment, and health care are operating. The enabling technology is based on the infrastructure of seamless communication, over the wired environment as well as the wireless environment. Following the rapid increase in penetration rate of the broadband services, and the imminent depolyment of the 3G wireless infrastructure, coupled with the Wi-Fi, users are beginning to enjoy multimedia services readily. Yet, several issues related to modeling, specification, analysis and design of distributed multimedia systems and intelligent multimedia applications are still challenging to both researchers and practitioners. IMMCN 2005, a constituent of JCIS 2005, serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among researchers, developers, and practitioners from around the world, contributing to all facets in the field of intelligent multimedia systems and technology. Furthermore, all participants of this conference would benefit from the communication and interaction with related research communities.

The conference organizers seek contributions of high quality papers addressing various aspects of intelligent multimedia systems and applications, especially under the Internet, Intranet and wireless network environment, for presentation at the conference and publication in the JCIS proceedings. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

bulletIntelligent and Next-Generation Networking
