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

-          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

-          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
