Call for Papers

The 6th International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE 2012). Madrid, Spain, 10-13 July 2012.

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.

Moreover, the emerging mobile computing and ubiquitous networking technologies enable users to access fully broadband mobile applications and new services anytime and everywhere. The continuous efforts have been dedicated to research and development in this wide area including wireless mobile networks, ad-hoc and sensor networks, smart user devices and advanced sensor devices, mobile and ubiquitous computing platforms, and new applications and services including location-based, context-aware, or social networking services.

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. MUE 2012 is the next event in a series of highly successful the International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering MUE-11 (Crete, Greece, June 2011), MUE-10 (Cebu, Philippines, August 2010), MUE-09 (Qingdao, China, June 2009), MUE-08 (Busan, Korea, April 2008), and MUE-07 (Seoul, Korea, April 2007).

Submissions should not exceed 8 pages in IEEE CS proceedings paper format, including tables and figures. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Submissions will be conducted electronically on the conference website.

Please, submit workshop proposals (according to the guidelines available at MUE-12 web site) before Nov, 30, 2011 to Prof. Juan Manuel Dodero (juanma.dodero at uca.es) with the subject "MUE2012 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL"

Distinguished selected papers accepted and presented in MUE 2012, after further revisions, will be published in issues of several indexed international journals

The Program Committee of MUE 2012 will give two best paper awards: one NVIDIA Best Student Paper Award and one NVIDIA Best Paper Award. Best Paper Awards will be given to the author(s) of a full paper presented at the conference, selected by the Organizing Committee. The Best Paper Award is a Tesla C2075 computing processor, sponsored by NVIDIA.
