Special Session on Digital Home Networks & Multimedia Contents Protection
Call for Papers and Participation
As part of
The 2014 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
July 21 – 25, 2014
The Savoia Hotel Regency
(Extended Submission Deadline: March 30, 2014)
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Recent years have witnessed rapid developments of the information communication technology and the Next-Generation Internet. 3G and 4G wireless mobile networks have been striding to a large-scale deployment and application. So, we have seen the potential and value for new technologies from a variety of digital networks to various interconnected digital devices, which made it possible to improve user’s digital experiences.
The emerging versatile networks could enable a convenient connection “anytime, anywhere, anything, anyone” to the information communications network. Unfortunately, in such environment, copyright infringement behaviors, such as illicit copying, malicious distribution, unauthorized usage, free sharing of copyright-protected digital contents, will also become a much more common phenomenon. Multimedia contents protection & Digital Rights Management (DRM) have a tangible goal to safeguard the rights and benefits of multimedia contents owners, copyrights holders, digital services providers, and even consumers in contents value chain. Some applications research frontiers, related to digital home network, have emerged in recent years. These include subjects on digital home network models, architectures and mechanisms, secure digital multimedia broadcasting and controlled contents sharing. Researchers, contents industry engineers and administrators attempt to resort to the state-of-the-art technologies and ideas to protect valuable multimedia contents and services assets against attacks and IP piracy in the emerging triple play.
This special session aims to bring together related research works in the realm of Digital Networks and Multimedia Contents Security, and further investigates and discusses trusted solutions and secure techniques for Digital Home Networks and DRM, as well as some open issues faced by digital contents owners/rights holders/multimedia services providers, who dedicate themselves to protect their Intellectual Property Rights and business benefits. In addition, novel ideas and research works from end users and consumer electronics’ perspective, such as trust management and evaluations, 3D display and quality test methods, will be embraced by this special session.
The DHN-MM Session topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Security Model, Architecture, Mechanisms and Protocols for Digital Home Networks
Digital Rights Management & Interoperability
Authentication, Authorization and Access Control in Digital Networks
3D Display and Quality Test Methods for Consumer Electronics
IP, Privacy and Usage Control for Home Networks
Trust Management and Evaluations Among Users
Secure Digital Multimedia Broadcasting
Multimedia Contents Sharing Modeling and Simulations
Contents Security and Protection in Multimedia Social Networks
Internet of Things
NFC/RFID integration in the Internet of Things
Cyber Physical Systems
User interactions and experience
Mobile multimedia platforms
Embedded Multimedia in wearable computing
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to digital home networks and multimedia contents protection. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2014.cisedu.info/home/posters for the posters submission details) will also be accepted for submission. In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author(s) is responsible for correspondence must be indicated. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Authors are invited to submit a PDF copy of their manuscript to the special session using the following link: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dhnmm14 . If the submission is for a poster paper or short paper, indicate that as well on the manuscript.
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the special session.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2014 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the Special Session organizers.
