Conference Aim

The 2010 EUROMEDIA conference covers the latest developments in web-multimedia and communications technology while also looking at their implementation in Broadband networking, mobile computing, broadband networking, distributed computing, telematics, E-technology and real world environments like embedded systems, security systems and training systems. New topics are human computer interaction with a focus on the interaction of users with multimodal interfaces and the usability and experiences of users with multimodal systems based on different media.

The EUROMEDIA conference is held concurrently with the ECEC and FUBUTEC conferences.

The conference is structured around 5 tracks: WEBTEC, which deals with web technology-COMTEC, which covers communications technology-MEDIATEC, which covers multimedia technology-APTEC, which provides an overview of media-integration and ETEC, which covers electronic commerce.

The conference also features special workshops on E-Business, D-TV, Medical Imaging, Facial and Biometric Recognition, Computer Graphics and Cyber Security.


The WEBTEC conference focuses on new developments with respect to Internet, Intranet, HTML/XML..., and WEB 2.0. Because of the large amount of new tools and developments, scientific papers focusing on this subject should always include references to other ideas and products. If your paper describes a new language or tool, include the theoretical basis, application, and (tested) experiences.

Special Track on Facial Recognition or Non Verbal Communication
Facial expressions play an important role in human communication. We are able to read emotions from human faces. Turn taking in human dialogues can be regulated by facial expressions. There is an ongoing discussion about the universal character of emotions. Psychologist P. Ekman claims that there are 6 universal emotions corresponding with unique facial expressions: happiness, sadness, disgust, anger, fear and surprise. But there are much more emotions, which can be conveyed by facial expressions, way of speaking, gestures and other body language. For many years researchers have been involved in the automatic recognition and generation of emotions. There are systems which are able to read faces and analyze speech signals to recognize emotions.
Researchers have developed "talking faces" which are able to show facial expressions and to speak with appropriate emotions. At this moment here robots and avatars which are able to display emotions and are able to recognize emotion.
The goal of the session/track is to invite researchers to present papers in the area of non verbal communication.

Medical Imaging Systems
In recent years, extensive research has been performed to develop more and more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems. Such systems are crucial for medical specialists, allowing a deeper analysis and to understand what is going inside the human body, and therefore they play an essential role for adequate medical diagnosis and treatments.
To accomplish efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, many research works have being done in many domains, like the ones related with medical image devices, signal processing, image processing and analysis, biomechanical simulation and data visualization.
The main goal of the Workshop "Medical Imaging Systems" is to bring together researchers involved in the related domains, in order to set the major lines of development for the near future.
Therefore, the proposed Workshop will consist of researchers representing various fields related to Medical Devices, Signal Processing, Computational Vision, Computer Graphics, Computational Mechanics, Scientific Visualization, Mathematics and Medical Imaging. The Workshop endeavors to contribute to obtain better solutions for more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, and attempts to establish a bridge between clinicians and researchers from these diverse fields.
The proposed Workshop will cover topics related with medical imaging systems, such as:
* image acquisition
* signal processing
* image processing and analysis
* modelling and simulation
* computer aided diagnosis
* surgery, therapy, and treatment
* computational bioimaging and visualization
* software development
* virtual reality
* telemedicine systems and their applications
Organised by Joao Tavares of the University of Porto, Portugal

D-TV Workshop

4th Workshop on Digital Television & Digital Special Interest Channels at the Euromedia 2009 - From Realisable Visions to Feasible and Sustainable Applications.
In contrast to traditional TV DTV is a telecommunication system for broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital signals. It uses digitally compressed modulation data, which requires decoding by a specially designed television set or a standard receiver (set-top box) as well as via PC-TV based on ADLS (VDSL). Digital Television has several advantages regarding technically as well as content and programme related aspects. One of the most significant is the use of a smaller channel bandwidth. This frees up space for more digital channels, other non-television services such as pay-multimedia services and the generation of new revenue models based on interactive advertisement and marketing features. Furthermore there are special services such as multicasting (more than one programme on the same channel), electronic programme guides and interactivity providing a wider range of application.
Accordingly within the last year a growing up of specialised digital TV channels (Special Interest Channels) has to be observed European wide. This new growing up stream is mainly characterised by the phenomena of merging television (TV) and information technology (IT) know how, methods and techniques.
In this context the workshop targets to show up the development in both directions: the technically aspects as well as the content and programme issues. It provides a presentation and discussion platform for exchanging experiences made within the establishment as well as the maintenance of digital special interest channels. Main focus will be to point out the interdependencies and the mutual influences of technically streams and content respectively service related issues.
