Main Theme of DMS2016: Sentient Multimedia Systems
The main theme of the 22nd International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2016) 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.
Second Theme of DMS2016: Multimedia Computing and Cultural Heritage
The second theme of DMS2016 is Multimedia Computing and Cultural Heritage.
We welcome papers on all aspects of this theme, including
both technologically oriented and culturally oriented approaches.
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.
DMS2016 Selected Papers will be published as special issues of JVLC and VLSS
The Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (JVLC),
