With the integration of multimedia visualization, Internet based computing, and resource sharing, there is a new emerging paradigm of multimedia software engineering.  There are many issues such as the development of new programming languages and constructs, multimodal synchronization, formal semantics, editors and tools for automated development of multimedia content, content based retrieval and matching, seamless human computer interaction, voice and image analysis and identification and transformation, and their application to model real world phenomenon involving Internet and remote transfer of multimedia objects.  We invite original research in the following areas but not limited to:

  • Formal semantics of multimedia languages and systems
  • Multimedia techniques for Software Development
  • Multimedia Metadata
  • Multimedia software security, safety, and reliability
  • Design of multimedia and Internet based languages
  • Software architectures and components for large scale multimedia computing
  • Integration of multimodal, temporal and logical constructs in programming languages
  • Testing and Validation of large scale multimedia system
  • Integration of multimedia and AI and Knowledge-based Software Engineering
  • Multimedia software visualization, quality of service and metrics
  • Internet and multimedia information systems development
  • Multimedia Design of music generation and audio-visual story generation
  • Temporal, spatial, sensor, and multimedia databases
  • Incorporation of temporality in multimedia database retrieval
  • Languages integrating sensors and biometrics with multimedia
  • Design and application of multimedia in modeling for biotechnology
  • Image and voice analysis for identification and perception
  • Multimedia Grid Computing and Distributed Environment
  • Multimedia Design for health including remote surgery and medical training
