Special Session on Trusted Ubiquitous Networks & Multimedia Contents Protection
(TUN-MM 2010)


As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2010)

In conjunction with
The 6th International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2010)

Extended Full Paper Submission Deadline: February 28, 2010

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 realize the ubiquitous network and society. 

The ubiquitous network could enable a convenient connection ?anytime, anywhere, anything, anyone? to the information communications network.  Yet, it is necessary for users to establish a highly secure and reliable environment in which they could enjoy ubiquitous digital services via ubiquitous network and connectivity.  Establishing trustworthy ubiquitous network brings up some urgent and challenging issues. 

In contrast to the cyberspace we have seen until now, the ubiquitous network will be capable of exchanging information more freely beyond the boundaries of time and distance.  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.  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 contents security, have emerged in recent years.  These include subjects on trustworthy networks and transactions, 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 digital contents and services assets against attacks and IP piracy in the emerging ubiquitous network. 

This special session aims to bring together related research works in the realm of Ubiquitous Network and Multimedia Contents Security, and further investigates and discusses trusted solutions and secure techniques for Ubiquitous Network and Ubiquitous Computing, 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 consumers? perspective, such as privacy, trustworthiness and multimedia contents sharing in ubiquitous network society, will be embraced by the session.

The Session topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to trusted ubiquitous 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.  Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.  Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the special session organizers at   xidianzzy@yahoo.cn and peiqingqi@gmail.com

Only PDF files will be accepted.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation.  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 which will be made available at the time of the meeting.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the HPCS conference and present the paper in the workshop.  Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. 

All accepted papers are expected to be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library ( EI indexing ).
