For release in the Advances in Multimedia and Interactive Technologies (AMIT) Book Series.

ISSN: 2327-929X

The Advances in Multimedia and Interactive Technologies (AMIT) Book Series investigates the relationship between multimedia technology and the usability of web applications. This series aims to highlight evolving research on interactive communication systems, tools, applications, and techniques to provide researchers, practitioners, and students of information technology, communication science, media studies, and many more with a comprehensive examination of these multimedia technology trends.

Multimedia communication involves software and hardware design for capturing, processing, storing, disseminating, editing, reusing, and managing different types of media sources over a variety of devices and transmission media to satisfy different application requirements. Therefore, there is an inherent need to present frameworks, techniques, standards, and networks that adopt multimedia communication technologies to a range of networking applications. Such applications can solve various problems such as multimedia content personalization, and mobile multimedia sharing.



This book aims to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area of multimedia communication systems. The main purpose of the book is to promote the discussion of and present advances in multimedia techniques, standards, and networks for a range of networking applications such as e-Commerce, e-Learning etc. Actually, the adoption of multimedia communication technologies to current networking applications can solve a variety of problems apart from the well-researched multimedia sharing related problems such as multimedia transmission over wireless networks. Furthermore, the role and issues (e.g., group synchronization) arising from the deployment of multimedia communication systems will be investigated.

Target Audience

The ultimate goal of this publication is to be a scholarly edition suitable for practitioners and researchers in the area of multimedia communication systems. The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and researchers working in the field of multimedia technologies in various disciplines, e.g. multimedia networking, information and communication sciences, e-Commerce, e-Learning, online-Journalism, administrative sciences and management, computer science, and information technology.
