2nd International Conference on
Automated Production of Cross Media Content for Multi-channel Distribution
Submission due: 10 September 2006 Conference date: 13-15 Dec 2006
Conference venue: University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT, UK
In the era of the digital world and the Internet, cross-media production, business models and distribution are being powerfully supported and pushed forward by the emergent technologies that help the industry to reduce the cost of media production and distribution, while optimising productivities. With these themes and motivations, the AXMEDIS2006 invites contributions and participations from all relevant sectors and domains; academic, business, industrial, to address different technical and commercial issues, applications and case studies.
AXMEDIS2006 aims to explore all subjects and topics related to cross-media and digital-media content production, processing, management, standards, representation, sharing, protection and rights management, to address the latest developments and future trends of the technologies and their applications, impacts and exploitation. We are particularly interested in exchanging concepts, requirements, prototypes, research ideas, and findings which could contribute to academic research and also benefit business and industrial communities. Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Automatic cross-media production, collection, crawling, composition, formatting, P2P, etc.
Formats and models for multi-channel content distribution
Multimedia standards, e.g. MPEG-7, MPEG-21, DMP, etc.
High quality audio visual coding
Multimedia music representation and formatting
Watermarking and fingerprinting techniques
GRID and distributed systems for content production
Novel applications and case-studies of relevant technologies
Applications and Industrial Presentations and Demos: Proposals for presentations of applications and tools, including case studies and reports on the application and utilisation of tools, industrial practices and models, or tool/system demonstrations. A summary/abstract of up to 8 pages of accepted proposals will be published in the conference proceedings for Applications and Industrial.
All submissions and proposals are to be in English and submitted in PDF format by email to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 10th September 2006.
