Abstract: 
The rapid advances in computing, communication and storage technologies have heralded a new age of explosive growth in multimedia applications, such as online image and video repository, mobile TV and IPTV, video on demand, interactive multimedia game, video blogging, multimedia based social interaction. These applications open up new opportunities and present new challenges to the technologies in the area of multimedia computing architectures, audio/visual information processing, multimedia analysis and understanding, multimedia retrieval and mining, multimedia coding, communication and networking. In recent years, considerable amounts of research activities in both industry and academia have been devoted to these topics and a key piece of puzzle is to develop novel and effective approaches in modeling and analyzing, representing and understanding, encoding and distributing multimedia content, which will be the focus of this workshop.

IMAP will provide an excellent forum for experts around the world to join together and to present their newest research results, exchange latest experiences and insights, and explore future directions in this important and evolving field. It aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area. The papers submitted to this workshop should focus on the state-of-the-art research in various important areas related to emerging technologies, standards and applications on analysis, processing, computing, and communication of multimedia information. The interested topics include but are not limited to:

 Multimedia content analysis, representation, and understanding 
 Content, user, computation, and network aware media engineering 
 Multimedia indexing and retrieval 
 Multimedia processing for wireless sensor networks 
 Multimedia data mining and fusing 
 Multimodal signal processing 
 Multimedia summarization and abstraction 
 Emerging multimedia applications 
 Multimedia coding, streaming, and networking 
 Intelligent audio-video surveillance and other security-related applications 
 Content authentication, preservation, and digital rights management 
 Multimedia tools including authoring, analyzing, editing, and browsing 
 Multimedia security 
 Multimedia and multimodal user interfaces and interaction models

Only original and unpublished paper will be considered. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of no more than six (6) pages in double-column IEEE format including results, figures and references before March 30, 2008. In addition, selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Springer-Verlag book on Multimedia Analysis, Processing and Communications (MAPC).
