The 6th International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE 2012). Madrid, Spain, 10-13 July 2012.
The new multimedia standards (for example, MPEG-21) facilitate the seamless integration of multiple modalities into interoperable multimedia frameworks, transforming the way people work and interact with multimedia data. These key technologies and multimedia solutions interact and collaborate with each other in increasingly effective ways, contributing to the multimedia revolution and having a significant impact across a wide spectrum of consumer, business, healthcare, education, and governmental domains.
Moreover, the emerging mobile computing and ubiquitous networking technologies enable users to access fully broadband mobile applications and new services anytime and everywhere. The continuous efforts have been dedicated to research and development in this wide area including wireless mobile networks, ad-hoc and sensor networks, smart user devices and advanced sensor devices, mobile and ubiquitous computing platforms, and new applications and services including location-based, context-aware, or social networking services.
This conference provides an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in the area of multimedia and ubiquitous environment including models and systems, new directions, novel applications associated with the utilization and acceptance of ubiquitous computing devices and systems.
