DMS2013 Call For Papers

The 19th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems
Holiday Inn, Brighton - Seafront, United Kingdom
August 8 - August 10, 2013

With today's proliferation of multimedia data (e.g., images, animations,
video, and sound), comes the challenge of using such information to
facilitate data analysis, modeling, presentation, interaction and
programming, particularly for end-users who are domain experts, but not
IT professionals. The main theme of the 19th International Conference on
Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2013) is multimedia inspired
computing. The conference organizers seek contributions of high quality
papers, panels or tutorials, addressing any novel aspect of computing
(e.g., programming language or environment, data analysis, scientific
visualization, etc.) 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.

Special issue of Journals:
The DMS conference is closely coordinated with the International Journal
of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering, the Journal of
Visual Languages and Computing and the International Journal of
Distance Education Technologies. Usually the best ranked papers from
the conference, after rigorous reviews, extensive revisions and further
enhancements, will appear in one or more special issues of the above
journals. Papers suggested for the special issue(s) will be reviewed by
external reviewers following the standard procedure of review
stipulated by the respective journal.
