CALL FOR PAPERS:  High-Speed Networking and Multimedia Computing 1995

Part of IS&T/SPIE Symposium on Electronic Imaging: Science & Technology
San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, California, February 5-11, 1995

Advances in computer and networking technologies have fueled the rapid
growth of research and development in high-speed networking and multimedia
computing. As emerging multimedia technologies set higher performance
levels at competitive costs, they are starting to enable and proliferate
multimedia solutions in a spectrum of commercial products and laboratory

This conference brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners
working in all facets of multimedia computing and networking.  The
conference will serve as a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art
research, development, and implementations of multimedia systems,
technologies, and applications.  Presenters will be encouraged to make
multimedia presentations and demonstrate their solutions.

Papers are solicited in all areas of multimedia, including, but not limited to:

1. Multimedia Computing and Presentation (e.g., hardware and software
architectures, real-time operating system services, data representation,
time-keeping mechanisms, data streaming and delivery mechanisms, event
processing, synchronization and real-time compositing,  display mechanisms,
media and user interaction)

2. Multimedia User Interfaces (e.g., video widgets, synthetic animation,
interactive navigation schemes)

3. Multimedia Networking (e.g., network protocols, quality-of-service
control,  bandwidth management strategies, transmission of media streams,
synchronization mechanisms, connections, data exchange and formats)

4. Multimedia Authoring Systems (media capture and creation, scripting
languages, authoring metaphors, editing techniques, data transitions)

5. Multimedia Applications (e.g., video conferencing, e-mail, education and
training, digital libraries, medical applications, entertainment and games)

6. Multimedia Services to the Home (e.g., set-top technologies and
operating systems; video-on-demand services; video servers; community
networking architecture)

7. Collaborative Multimedia Computing (e.g., concurrency control of shared
multimedia objects; cyberspace communication, presentation, and
interaction; electronic communities; entertainment and games)

8. Multimedia Standards, documents, and data interchange.
