2014 International Workshop on Mobile Multimedia Computing (MMC 2014) In conjunction with the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME 2014)


The intimate presence of mobile devices in our daily life, such as smartphones and tablets, has dramatically changed the way we connect with the world around us. Users rely on mobile devices to maintain an always-on relation to information, personal, and social networks. With a growing number of powerful embedded mobile sensors like camera, microphone, GPS, gyroscope, accelerometer, digital compass, and proximity sensor, there is a variety of data recorded and hence enables new sensing applications across diverse research domains comprising mobile media analysis, mobile information retrieval, mobile computer vision, mobile social networks, mobile human-computer interaction, mobile entertainment, mobile gaming, mobile healthcare, mobile learning, and mobile advertising.

Regardless of the application fields, many issues and challenges brought by the emerging technologies for mobile multimedia still lie ahead and many research questions remain to be answered. For example, seamless user experience has been identified as one key factor in designing mobile multimedia applications for multiple form factors, but its provision can be challenging and require effective integration of rich mobile sensors and multidisciplinary research, such as multimedia content adaptation and user behavior analysis. In addition, for power saving purpose, application-driven energy management is an important technical consideration in mobile multimedia computing, e.g. what part of the computing should be performed on mobile devices, and what part is better shifted to the cloud servers?

This workshop, MMC 2014, aims to bring together researchers and professionals from worldwide academia and industry for showcasing, discussing, and reviewing the whole spectrum of technological opportunities, challenges, solutions, and emerging applications in mobile multimedia.
