                      CALL FOR PAPERS

              The 9th International Conference on
                  December 2 - 5, 2013

      In cooperation with ACM SIGAPP French Chapter and
      IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing

                 Kyoto Terrsa, Japan



The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used 
to represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging 
from signal, image, and multimedia data to traditional structured data 
and semi-structured data found in the web. 

SITIS spans two inter-related research domains that increasingly play 
a key role in connecting systems across network centric environments 
to allow distributed computing and information sharing. 

SITIS 2013 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on 
research activities centered on three main tracks: 

- The first track titled "Web Computing and Applications (WeCA)" 
focuses on emerging and novel concepts, architectures, technologies, 
and methodologies for information management related to the Web and 
cloud computing. In essence, the Web, with its different versions, 
has created an interconnected world in which information can be 
exchanged easily, tasks can be processed collaboratively, communities 
of users with similarly interests can be formed to achieve efficiency 
and improve performance, etc. Taking full advantage of these 
interconnected environments to meet the ever increasing needs of 
emerging applications requires solutions that address new issues 
and challenges. The track calls for research papers 
and reports directed at several areas including: Data Semantics, 
Web-Centric Systems, Big Data, Information System Interoperability, 
Cloud, Cooperative information and Distributed Systems, and 
Information security 

- The second track titled "Signal & Image Technologies (SIT)" focuses 
on recent developments in digital signal processing and pays particular 
attention to evolutions in audiovisual signal processing, analysis, 
coding and authentication, and retrieval techniques. 
The track calls for research papers and reports directed at several 
areas including:Image Processing and Analysis, Signal processing, 
Image/Video Coding and Authentication, and Applications 

- The third track titled "Multimedia Information Retrieval and Application (MIRA)" 
focuses on emerging modeling, representation and retrieval techniques 
that take into account the amount, type and diversity of multimedia 
information accessible in distributed computing environment. 
The internet, social networking, multimedia databases and management 
of multimedia cultural collections have created the need for cross-fields 
models, paradigms and techniques for efficient modeling, management and 
consumption of multimedia contents. The track calls for research papers 
and reports directed at several areas including 
Multimedia Query and Retrieval; Mobile and Location-Based Media, 
Social media and Social networking, Multimedia Security, and 
Multimedia Arts, Entertainment and Digital Culture. 

Submission and publication 

The conference will include keynote addresses, tutorials, and regular 
and workshop sessions. SITIS 2013 invites submission of high quality 
and original papers on the topics of the major tracks described below. 

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for 
technical merit, originality, significance and relevance to track topics. 

Papers must be up to 8 pages and follow IEEE double columns publication format. 
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published 
by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes. 

Special issues and Journal Publication 

Extended versions of the selected papers will be published in one of the following reviewed journals. 

- World Wide Web Journal (WWW) 
- Multimedia Tools and Applications journal (MTAP) 
- Journal of Complex Networks (JCN)
