DMS2014 Call For Papers
(Alternate website: www.cs.pitt.edu/~chang/seke/dms14.html)
The main theme of the 20th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2014) is Sentient Multimedia Systems,
which are distributed systems capable of actively
interacting with the environment by gathering,
processing, interpreting, storing and retrieving multimedia
information originated from sensors, robots, actuators, websites and other information sources.
The conference organizers seek contributions of high quality papers, panels or tutorials, addressing any novel aspect of sentient multimedia systems that
significantly benefits from the incorporation/integration of multimedia data (e.g., visual, audio, pen, voice, image, etc.),
for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. Both research and case study papers or demonstrations describing results in research area as well as industrial development cases and experiences are solicited.
The use of prototypes and demonstration video for presentations is encouraged.
DMS2014 Proceedings will be published as Special Issue of JVLC
The Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (JVLC),
which is indexed by SCI, EI, DBLP, Scopus and other indexers,
