MMN 2014

The IEEE International Workshop on Mobile Multimedia Networks

(MMN 2014)

In Conjunction with the 14th IEEE International Conference on

Computer and Information Technology (CIT 2014)

September 11-13, 2014, Xi'an, Shaanxi, China


We have witnessed the rapid development of wireless sensor networks over the past decade, with advancements in network communication protocols, system design, signal processing, controls and other aspects. Especially, there has been increasing interest on Mobile Multimedia Networks (MMN) in recent years. Such mobile multimedia networks are extremely valuable in situations where traditional deployment mechanisms fail or just not suitable, and where sensors cannot be manually deployed or air-dropped. Such areas include underwater or airborne sensor networks, robotic sensing, structural health monitoring, advanced health care delivery, video surveillance, traffic enforcement and control systems, etc. Many challenging and interesting topics will be involved in research of mobile multimedia networks, (e.g., energy-efficient multimedia source coding, MIMO techniques for multimedia delivery, cross-layer optimization, secure multimedia streaming, network localization, coverage and deployment, and cooperative transmission for multimedia delivery, etc.).

The MMN 2014 Symposium aims to provide researchers who share similar research interests to meet and address various aspects of analysis, design, optimization, implementation, and application of mobile multimedia networks. In this Symposium, we solicit research papers with respect to all aspects of mobile multimedia networks. Particularly, we are interested in the research submissions focusing on the following aspects, but not limited to:

  • Capacity modeling, performance analysis, and theoretical analysis
  • Experimental and test bed studies, simulation tools
  • Joint multimedia processing and communication solutions
  • Real-time and reliable multimedia streaming
  • Mobile multimedia network architectures, deployments, and heterogeneous applications
  • Semantic annotation for mobile multimedia streams processing and management
  • Energy-efficient mobile multimedia networks
  • Cross-layer optimization for effective communications
  • Context/content aware approaches for facilitating multimedia streaming
  • Secure multimedia streaming transmission and QoS
  • Cooperative transmission for multimedia delivery and collaborative in-network processing
  • Energy-efficient multimedia source coding
  • Topology control and synchronization protocols
  • Distributed source coding and multimedia encoding techniques
  • Network localization, coverage and deployment techniques
  • MIMO techniques for multimedia delivery
