1st International Workshop on Objects models and Multimedia technologies
September 2, 2003, Geneva, Switzerland
in conjunction with
9th International Conference on Object-Oriented Information Systems
Multimedia technologies have been present in the Object model world many years ago. We may note the famous graphic interfaces of Smalltalk programming environment that include texts and images in a uniform way, based on a flexible and powerful programming environment. If the initial popularity of multimedia has been based on superficial gadgets, multimedia becomes today an important element in computer science industry. We integrate video, sound and image naturally in various application fields such as education, science, medicine, administration, commerce, culture and art. This multimedia evolution requires not only sophisticated methods of programming but also information system architectures, networks quality of services, methodologies and specific emerging techniques.
The convergence of Multimedia and Telematics is one of the most important challenges that induces the profound change in the way people communicate today. The convergence framework of the near future will be set by new access requirements like broadband, multimedia, and multiservice. Interactivity, mobility, customisation and object-oriented methodologies are the new paradigms of the telecommunications business. On the basis of the pace of technology development and the trends in the demands of the marketplace, "convergence" and "mobility" will likely be the key themes that would dominate the Information Communication Technology landscape over the next decade.
The purpose of the workshop is to draw up an inventory of the role of the object models in the broad sense, and particularly in the federator field of multimedia data processing. Particular attentions will be given to two important fields:
- multimedia normative aspects, such as MPEG4, MPEG7, SMIL, XML where object models and multimedia are present in various forms as tools of modeling.
- The implications of convergence and mobility on the telecommunications services industry, and the role of object methodologies in making the convergence of the telecommunications, broadcasting and online services sectors as painless as possible.
All the papers related to the following topics are welcome (non restrictive list):
- State of the art of the field.
- Mobile objects and agents.
- Communicating objects
- Multimedia convergence.
- Implementation and design of multimedia systems based on object technologies (object-oriented programming, designing).
- Object-oriented information systems and multimedia standards.
- Industrial applications: descriptions and assessments.
- Future prospects and new developments.
Two alternate formats of papers are possible:
- long format papers: 20 pages
- short format papers: 8 pages.
The papers are written in French or English. The long papers correspond to technical and experimental papers. The short papers are rather general chronic on the field (over flight, prospects, ticket of mood).
Reviewed submissions, accepted for workshop presentation will be published in the workshop proceedings. Extended versions of accepted papers could be published by Springer Verlag (to be confirmed later).
June 15, 2003: Paper submission deadline
June 30, 2003: Paper acceptance notifications
July 8, 2003: Camera-ready papers due
September 2, 2003: Workshop date
