*Trust Management for Multimedia Big Data*

With the rapid growth of Cyber Physical and Social Computing (CPSC) and
cloud computing, huge volumes of multimedia data collected by various
devices through different communication channels are being processed,
analyzed and mined in order to support many promising services. However,
analysis and mining of multimedia data introduce a number of issues related
to its trust management, especially for multimedia big data. Privacy,
security and trust in multimedia data perception, transmission,
communications, fusion, mining, storage and usage attract special
attentions. In particular, big volumes of multimedia data introduce special
requirements on efficiency, availability and dependability of its trust
management. Trust management for multimedia big data becomes a key issue
that impacts the success of multimedia computing, communications and

Existing solutions of trust management for multimedia big data are
imperfect or incomprehensive. Multimedia big data brings additional
challenges to trust management research with regard to the security and
privacy of multimedia, the efficiency and accuracy of multimedia process
and the dependability and quality of processing results.

This special issue aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to
discuss various aspects of trust management for multimedia big data,
explore key theories, investigate technology enablers, develop significant
applications and innovate new solutions for overcoming major challenges in
this research area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Multimedia perturbation technologies

• Secure multimedia transmission

• Multimedia big data anonymization and fusion

• Multimedia provenance trust

• Secure multi-party computation for big multimedia

• Privacy-preserving multimedia fusion and analytics

• Multimedia source reliability estimation and assurance

• Trust management for big multimedia

• Verifiable multimedia computing

• Multimedia trust and reputation

• Privacy protection in CPSC multimedia

• Multimedia applications with trust management

• MapReduce for big multimedia

• Secure multimedia search and collection

• Multimedia security and privacy in cloud computing and social networking

• Digital rights management of multimedia

*Instructions for Manuscripts*

Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation,
relevance and contributions, as well as their suitability to the special
issue. The submitted papers must be written in excellent English and
describe original research that has not been published nor currently under
review by other venues. Previously published conference papers should be
clearly identified by the authors at the submission stage and an
explanation should be provided about how such papers have been extended to
be considered for this special issue. Extended conference contributions
must have at least 50% difference from the original works (the authors must
indicate the conference name and make a reference to the base conference
paper). Guest editors will make an initial determination on the suitability
and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity
in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be
sent for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such cases.

The submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three independent
reviewers. Final decisions on accepted papers will be based on their
qualities and their relevance to the theme of this special issue and should
be approved by the journal editors. Manuscripts must be prepared for
publication according to the journal's Author Guidelines available at: Submissions must conform to the layout, format and
page limit in the guidelines. The authors must select "SI: TM-BigData" when
they reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process.
