This special issue invites high quality scientific contributions in 
multimedia semantic computing, with a focus on how to apply the semantic 
technologies to the acquisition, generation, transmission, storage, 
processing, and retrieval of large-scale multimedia information. 
Discussions on future challenges in multimedia information manipulation, 
as well as practical solutions for the design and implementation of 
multimedia database software systems are also encouraged.

Authors of the selected best papers of The 2nd IEEE International 
Workshop on Data Semantics for Multimedia Systems and Applications 
(IEEE-DSMSA 2009) will be invited to submit extended versions of their 
papers for this special issue,

Topics of interest include but are not limited to practical areas that 
span both semantic technologies and multimedia processing & computing:

* Automatic generation of multimedia presentations
* Semantic multimedia metadata extraction
* Annotation tools and methods for multimedia semantics
* Media ontology generation/learning/reasoning
* Content-based multimedia analysis
* Social media computing
* Web-scale multimedia mining and retrieval
* Multimedia indexing, searching, and retrieving
* Multimedia streaming
* Multimedia data visualization
* Semantic-based QoS control and scheduling
* Semantic-based Internet data streaming and delivery
* Multimedia standards (e.g., MPEG-7 and XMP) and Semantic Web
* Semantics enabled multimedia applications (including annotation, 
browsing, storage, retrieval, and visualization)
* Semantics enabled networking and middleware for multimedia applications
* Service Infrastructure, technology, and tools for Multimedia software
