The Second International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Multimedia Computing (ParDMCom 2007)

in conjunction with International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing and Application (ISPA 2007)
August 28 - September 1, 2007, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada


General Information

For the last decades Multimedia computing has emerged as an important technology to generate content based on images, video, audio, graphics, and text. Furthermore, the recent new development represented by High Definition and Interactive television will generate important computing problems connected with the creation, processing and management of Multimedia content. Dealing with HD Multimedia content (image, video and sound) will generate a huge volume of data to process which can lead in a natural way to parallel and distributed computing. Moreover, the inherent data parallelism of Multimedia content data makes this type of computing a natural application area for parallel and distributed processing.

This workshop aims to merge the recent research achievements in developing new theories, algorithms, architectures, systems and integrated multimedia platforms that exploit parallel and distributed computing.

TOPICS OF INTEREST (but not limited to the following):

- Parallel and distributed algorithms for multimedia.

- Parallel and distributed architectures for multimedia.

- Parallel multimedia computing servers.

- Multimedia content creation, processing, and management using parallel and distributed architectures.

- Parallel processing architectures of multimedia set-top boxes.

- Multimedia agent technology and parallel processing.
