  General Information

Multimedia plays an important role in our daily activities and has become one of the most relevant technological innovations. The ever more increasing computational and communication requirements demanded by current and next generation multimedia devices together with energy constraints which characterize portable devices require innovative design methodologies and tools. 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.

The 11th edition of ESTIMedia is continuing to be run in Embedded System Week and will provide a forum for researchers, from academia and industry, to present and discuss innovative ideas and solutions related to embedded systems for real-time multimedia.  

  ACM TECS Special Issue for ESTIMedia

A subset of the accepted papers will be published in the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS), Special Issue for ESTIMedia 2013. the rest of the accepted papers will be published in the symposium electronic proceedings and included in the IEEE Digital Library.  

  Areas of Interest

The topics of specific interest for the Symposium include, but not limited 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 (see Paper Submission Guidelines for details) with a clear identification for submitting to ESTIMedia 2013. 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 Maurizio Palesi (maurizio.palesi[at]unikore[dot]it) or
