DMS2012 Call For Papers
Int'l Conf. on Distributed Multimedia Systems
August 9 to 11, 2012
Eden Roc Renaissance (http://www.marriott.com/miasr)
Miami Beach, USA

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 18th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2012) 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.

An electronic version (Postscript, PDF, or MS Word format) of the full paper should be submitted using the following URL: http://conf.ksi.edu/dms2012/submit/SubmitPaper.php (submission site will be open Jan 1, 2012).
