EG Multimedia 2004
7th Eurographics Workshop on Multimedia

Nanjing University, China, 27-28 October 2004

Aims and Scope

This workshop is a follow up on the Eurographics Workshop on Multimedia held in Manchester, UK, in September 2001 and continues a series of six successful Eurographics workshops in the field. It is also the first time that this workshop takes place in a location outside Europe, which will promote interaction between researchers from different origins. The workshop will cover a wide range of current subjects with a special focus on issues related with Multimedia in Mobile and Augmented Environments. These include approaches for mobile multimedia, using video in mobile devices, using the physical world to present multimedia information, and other context aware applications. Authors are invited to submit technical papers in these or related areas. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Mobile Multimedia Context Aware Interactive Multimedia
Interactive Video Audio and Video in Augmented Environments
Multimodal Interaction Ubiquitous Media
Broadband Personal Interfaces Auditory Interfaces
Audio/Image/Video Processing Content Analysis
Media Databases and Search Engines Content Based Retrieval
Media Information Retrieval on the Web Delivery of Multimedia Data
Media Web Servers and Services Video Coding and Description Standards
Multimedia Document Metaphors Authoring Paradigms
Media Integration Augmented Reality
Storytelling Environments Applications: Entertainment, Learning, etc.

Submission Procedure

Authors are requested to submit papers, no longer than 10 pages, in the Eurographics Conference Paper Format. Detailed guidelines are available at the EG Multimedia 2004 Workshop Site. Post-workshop proceedings will be available online, through the Eurographics Digital Library, and in paper book form, in the Eurographics Book Series. Selection will be based upon technical and scientific content and relevance to the workshop.

Workshop Format

The workshop will be held in two days, including paper presentation tracks and discussion plenary sessions. Participation is open to everyone, not requiring submission of a paper. The workshop will take place just after the ICIG'2004 Conference (Oct. 23-25, 2004, Hong Kong, China). The workshop will be co-located with a conference on Digital Media and Digital Cities. As such, it will provide a very interesting opportunity for researchers that want to attend or present communications at these events.
