    CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS
    "Recent Advances in Multimedia Signal Processing and
    Communications"

    EDITED BY
    Mislav Grgic, Kresimir Delac, Mohammed Ghanbari

    To be published by Springer Verlag in the series
    "Studies in Computational Intelligence"

    DEADLINE (title and abstract): NOVEMBER 17, 2008
    DEADLINE (full chapters): JANUARY 19, 2009


    BOOK DESCRIPTION

    With the continuous increase in the volume of multimedia
    content in our everyday lives, multimedia signal processing
    is becoming a more and more important research area. It is
    the basis for creating content based on video, audio, images,
    and text. High quality multimedia content delivery and
    applications are making challenging demands on both
    processing (high computing power needed) and management
    (storing and delivering via various communication protocols)
    data. For all these reasons, existing signal processing and
    communication techniques are constantly being challenged and
    improved by employing advanced computational intelligence
    techniques.

    We have envisioned this book as a survey of multidisciplinary
    advances made in combining multimedia signal processing and
    communication techniques with various computational
    intelligence methods. Papers and studies which couple
    theoretical advances with real-life application scenarios are
    cordially invited. We shall also readily welcome high quality
    survey articles that emphasize the research and application
    of multimedia signal processing in a particular domain
    (medicine, entertainment industry etc).

    Topics to be addressed in the book include, but are not
    limited to:

    ---> Multimedia Database Systems
    ---> Man-Machine Interfaces for Multimedia

    ABOUT THIS SERIES

    The series "Studies in Computational Intelligence" (SCI)
    publishes new developments and advances in the various areas
    of computational intelligence - quickly and with a high
    quality. The intent is to cover the theory, applications, and
    design methods of computational intelligence, as embedded in
    the fields of engineering, computer science, physics and life
    science, as well as the methodologies behind them. The series
    contains monographs, lecture notes and edited volumes in
    computational intelligence spanning the areas of neural
    networks, connectionist systems, genetic algorithms,
    evolutionary computation, artificial intelligence, cellular
    automata, self-organizing systems, soft computing, fuzzy
    systems, and hybrid intelligent systems. Critical to both
    contributors and readers are the short publication time and
    world-wide distribution - this permits a rapid and broad
    dissemination of research results.
