Call for papers

Integration of software engineering and content technologies supporting the content production and multichannel distribution, interoperability, knowledge, protection and semantics aspects. AXMEDIS2008 aims to explore all subjects, latest developments, future trends, of technologies and their applications. With a particularly attention to new concepts, requirements, prototypes, research ideas, and findings which could contribute to cross fertilization and convergence of research and industrial communities. This is the 4th conference of a series pressed by IEEE with high level papers and large audience and distribution.
Recommended topics include, but are not limited to:

  • formats and models for multi-channel content distribution and interoperability
