Introduction
************
Ambient Intelligence is a vision of the future where we shall be surrounded by electronic 
environments, sensitive and responsive to people. In the ambient intelligence view, devices work 
in concert to support people in carrying out their everyday life activities in an easy and natural way 
using information and intelligence that is hidden in the network connecting these devices and in 
the device itself.

In some sense Ambient Intelligence technologies combine concepts of ubiquitous computing and 
intelligent systems putting humans in the centre of technological developments.
In general Ambient Intelligence implies Device Intelligence. In fact an interesting trend of 
development regards distributed Ambient Intelligence. In this scenario the device capacity of elaborate 
and extract sophisticated information or improve the general quality of the extracted information from the 
environment is crucial.
In these fields of research a crucial role is played by multimedia information processing and in particular 
by imaging technologies.
The MTDAI session is dedicated to research on the technologies used to improve the intelligence 
capacity of multimedia devices. In particular the MTDAI deals with technologies related to Imaging, 
Image Processing and Computer Vision.
The session is aims to bring together top researchers both from academia and industry to stimulate 
research and create interdisciplinary collaboration links allowing the exploration of new frontiers 
in the area of ambient and device intelligence.
The MTDAI will focus on recent developments in digital signal processing including evolutions 
in audiovisual signal processing, analysis, coding and authentication, and retrieval techniques.

Submission
**********

Submission information: http://iimss-09.kesinternational.org/submission.php

Papers for consideration for the conference may be submitted  to an Invited Session on a specific topic. 
Papers should not exceed 10 pages in Springer format. 
Papers longer than this will be subject to an additional charge. 
Shorter papers will be acceptable if they adequately convey the material to be described, 
and are not so short as to be trivial or lacking in depth. 
The papers will be scheduled for presentation either orally or by poster, depending 
on their attributes, author preferences and referee recommendations. Please note that 
poster presentations are regarded as being of equal importance and status to oral presentations.
