Dealing with data from different modalities, is the common case in today's systems. With the continuous development in network technologies, acquisition systems, and computational power, creating and sharing multimedia data is becoming easier for all people around the world. On Facebook, for example, around 500000 comments are posted and around 135000 images are uploaded every second. Storing, searching in, analyzing, and utilizing Multimedia data is highly challenging. That is why the International Conference on Multimedia Computing, Networking and Applications (MCNA) gives the opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their efforts in addressing the challenges of dealing with Multimedia data. The main topics include but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent Image / Video Analytics
  • Digital Image and Video Processing
  • Image Rendering and Quality
  • Imaging Sensors and Acquisition Systems
  • Content Based Image/Video Retrieval
  • Vision for Graphics
  • Human Behavior Understanding
  • Deep Artificial Intelligence
  • Motion and Tracking Algorithms and Applications
  • Watermarking Methods and Protection
  • Image Data Structures and Databases
  • Color Reproduction
  • Image Compression, Coding, and Encryption
  • Statistical and Structural Pattern Recognition
