Fifth Joint Conference on Information Sciences
(JCIS 2000)

Taj Mahal, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA

First International Workshop on
Intelligent Multimedia Computing and Networking
(IMMCN 2000, a constituent of JCIS 2000)

February 27 to March 3, 2000

Theme and Scope:
In the last few years we have observed an explosive growth of
multimedia computing, communication and applications. This revolution
is transforming the way people live, work, and interact with each
other, and is impacting the way businesses, government services,
education, entertainment, and health care are operating. It is safe to
say that the multimedia revolution is already underway. Yet, several
issues related to modeling, specification, analysis and design of
distributed multimedia systems and intelligent multimedia applications
are still challenging to both researchers and practitioners. IMMCN
2000, a constituent of JCIS 2000, serves as a forum for the exchange
of ideas among practicing engineers and researchers from around the
world, as well as highlight current activities and important topics in
the field of intelligent multimedia systems and
technology. Furthermore, all participants of this workshop may benefit
from the communication and interaction with related research
communities. The workshop organizers seek contributions of high
quality papers addressing various aspects of intelligent multimedia
systems and applications, for presentation at the workshop and
publication in the proceedings. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to:

intelligent multimedia
multimedia authoring tools and intelligent tutoring
educational applications
cultural heritage multimedia applications
intelligent network architectures
multimedia communications and networking
mobile network architectures
multimedia applications for CSCW, distant education
electronic commerce, tele-conferencing, tele-medicine.
Web servers and services
multimedia software engineering
distributed multimedia databases and computing
image, video, audio content analysis and indexing/retrieval
multi-paradigmatic information retrieval
multimedia digital libraries and mail systems
intelligent multimedia workflows
OS support for distributed multimedia systems
multimedia stream synchronization
quality of service control/scheduling
audio and video compression
modeling and analysis of distributed multimedia systems
multimedia human-computer interaction
intelligent multimodal interaction
visual and multidimensional languages for multimedia applications
virtual reality, virtual environment, and their applications
animation and computer graphics
3D audio and video
Java, VRML and multimedia languages
MPEG, Quicktime, Windows API standards

Paper must be written in English. Please send four copies of your
4-page extended summary (10 point, double column, and single-spaced)
and your full length double-spaced complete manuscript (include
figures and references) to the workshop chair. The conference
proceeding will publish the four pages of extended summary. The
Information Science Journal will review the full length
paper. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the PC members of the
IMMCN 2000 workshop. The workshop organizers may also invite
researchers to submit qualified papers related to the above topics.

Invited/Special Sessions
Papers submitted to special sessions are invited by special session
chairs. Special sessions aim to collect research results from
different qualified perspectives. Please contact the workshop chair if
you are interested in organizing a special session.

Special issue of the Information Science Journals
Best ranked papers accepted at the workshop will be published in a
special issue of one of the three Information Science Journals,
subject to a quick review by the program committee.
