IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Mobile Multimedia: Methodology and Applications.
With the development of mobile computing and high-speed communication technologies, there is an increasing demand for mobile multimedia services and applications. Emerging technologies, such as mobile TV, 3D video, 360-degree video, multi-view video, free-viewpoint video, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR), have received significant interest and attention from both academia and industry. Those technologies are widely expected to bring exciting services and applications for monitoring, entertaining, training, and operating in the areas of smart home, smart city, public safety, healthcare, education, manufacturing, transportation, etc.
There are many open research issues in developing mobile multimedia systems, which could potentially affect many domains, including mobile computing, context-aware computing, human-computer interaction, cybernetics, cyber-physical human systems (CPHS), and information security and privacy. For example, the two-way communication between user devices and content providers in mobile interactive multimedia systems is highly delay-sensitive. Thus, latency modeling and evaluation is critical to system architecture design and resource allocation. Besides, as many mobile multimedia applications are location-related, research on real-time location-aware computing and context-aware computing becomes important in the development of mobile multimedia systems. Moreover, new networking and computing technologies, such as social networks, software-defined networks, edge and fog computing, and content-centric networking are expected to have great impacts on the design of mobile multimedia systems. For example, to reduce latency for AR/VR applications, software on edge computing servers can provide local object tracking and local AR/VR content caching. In addition, trust and privacy issues are very important concerns to users as malicious applications could deceive users by taking advantage of interactivity and providing false content. This Special Section in IEEE Access focuses on various theoretical and experimental views on the methodology and applications of mobile multimedia.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
