The 2nd International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE2008)
April 24 - 26, 2008
2nd International Workshop on Interative Multimedia & Intelligent Services in MUC (CFP)
With the proliferation of wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast growing interest in Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing (MUC). MUC enables to create a human-oriented computing environment where computer chips are embedded in everyday objects and interact with physical world. Through MUC, people can get online even while moving around, thus having almost permanent access to their preferred services. With a great potential to revolutionize our lives, MUC also poses new research challenges. This workshop will focus on the challenges and solutions for MUC with an emphasis on interactive multimedia and intelligent services. The workshop will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of MUC. The workshop will publish high quality papers, which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in MUC. In addition, we expect that the workshop and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.
The 1st International Workshop on Formal Verification and Validation of Ubiquitous Systems (CFP)
Ubiquitous computing system (UCS) is a post-desktop model of human-computer interaction in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities. The environment consists of autonomous and context-aware agents embedded in to small, inexpensive, robust and networked processing devices distributed at all scales throughout our everyday life. As opposed to the desktop paradigm, in which a user engages a single device for a specialized purpose, a user of UCS engages various computational devices and systems simultaneously, in the course of ordinary activities, without even being aware of that. With such a heterogeneous infrastructure of large number of autonomous devices, programming each device individually and verifying the programs will be a tedious, costly and error prone task.
International Symposium on Ubiquitous Multimedia Service (CFP)
Ubiquitous Environments (UE) have received significant attention in the last few decades. UE enable to create a human-oriented computing environment where micro-computers are embedded in everyday objects and interact with physical world. With a great potential to revolutionize our lives, UE also poses new research challenges. One of the main challenges is Ubiquitous Multimedia Service (UMS), which provides the real-time multimedia services anytime, anywhere. Our special symposium will focus on the challenges and solutions for UMS.
The 1st International Workshop on Next Generation Security (CFP)
The workshop will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of NGS. The workshop will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in NGS. In addition, we expect that the workshop and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.
The 2nd International Workshop on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Security (CFP)
Traditional security models and technologies for computer security are not suitable to multimedia and ubiquitous security. Thus, new theory and applications on security models, policies, evaluation tools, and enforcement measures are necessary. Emerging topics such as forensics, surveillance, copyrights, anonymity, cover channel, and privacy issues need to be dis-cussed from the new framework point of view. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers.
Call for Workshop Proposals
Several workshops will be held in conjunction with MUE 2008 with the aim to explore special topics and provide international forums for scientists, engineers, and computer users to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results on hot topics on intelligent pervasive computing.
Workshops for presenting papers from industrial companies and papers on implementations of systems and services are very welcome. All accepted workshop papers will be published by IEEE CS proceedings.
In general, each workshop takes one day, although multiple-day and half-day workshops are welcome. Please send a workshop proposal by September 15, 2007 to Workshop chairs
The workshop proposal should include following information:
- Title of the workshop: International Workshop on ...
- Workshop chair(s): name, affiliation, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail.
- Brief description of the workshop (several hundred words)
- Expected number of papers to be submitted
- Call for paper of the workshop (draft version)
- Tentative list of program committee members (Name, affiliation, country, email address)
If your workshop were accepted, online submission systems will be prepared by SERSC. Each workshop will start to distribute a call for paper after receiving the notification. Papers submitted to each workshop will be reviewed by the program committee and external reviewers of the workshop. And all program committee will get 10% discount of registration fee.
