  General Information

The IEEE ESTIMedia aims to bring together people from different multimedia-related research communities who have worked separately, but did not interact sufficiently to address the challenges facing the design of hardware and software for multimedia systems. After a very successful debut in 2003 and consolidated in successive years, ESTIMedia is continuing to be run in Embedded Systems Week. We hope that this 10th edition will present a good opportunity for specialists from academia and industry to contribute to this exciting research area. The program will bring together original work from both, academic and industrial research and development. This year, ESTIMedia features a NEW SUBMISSION procedure distinct from  previous years as follows:

1. All submissions are made to the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS), Special Issue for ESTIMedia 2012.

2. There will be two types of accepted submissions: (1) accepted and selected papers and (2) accepted papers.

3. The accepted and selected papers will be published in the special issue of the ACM TECS. These papers will be also invited to provide an extended abstract to be published in the symposium proceedings.

4. The accepted papers will be published (full length) in the symposium proceedings.

5. Authors of the “accepted and selected” papers and the “accepted” papers are scheduled for a 20-min oral presentation followed by an interactive poster session.

6.  Papers should represent original work, not published or submitted for publication in other conferences or journals.

  Areas of Interest (but not restricted to)
  • Specification and modeling of multimedia systems
  • Multimedia systems design methodologies and case studies
  • Circuits and architectures for embedded multimedia systems
  • Multimedia processors and reconfigurable architectures
  • Emerging trends (systems-on-chip, networks-on-chip, game applications, etc.)
  • Validation and verification
  • Software optimization and compiler techniques
  • Timing aspects of media streams
  • Scheduling of media processing
  • Resource and QoS management methods
  • Temporal estimation and protection of media streams
  • Real-time kernels, OS and middleware support


  Submission Guidelines

Both research and application-oriented papers are welcome. Research papers should describe original research, such as new ideas, promising approaches and experiences with practical systems. Application-oriented papers should describe interesting technical aspects of real-life applications, prototypes, experiences, and standards. Submitted papers should represent original work, not published or submitted for publication in other conferences or journals. All papers should be submitted electronically via the TECS submission system with a clear identification for submitting to ESTIMedia 2012. Submissions must be limited to 10 pages, single-spaced, double-column IEEE format with 10-point fonts. Authors are also encouraged to submit shorter (e.g., 6 pages) papers if this better fits the nature and content of the paper. Papers deviating significantly from these paper size and font constraints may be rejected without review.

Any questions regarding the submission process may be directed to the TPC Co-Chairs Jian-Jia Chen (j.chen[at]kit[dot]edu) or
