Aims & Scope

It is beyond doubt that the popularity and evolution of mobile computing devices such as laptops, mobile phones, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA), and the fast mobile networks, have made it possible to increase the range and complexity of mobile multimedia applications and services provided to end-users of these kinds of equipments. In the core of this revolution is the astonishing growth in the number, types, novelty, and complexity of mobile multimedia applications and services. Yet for people to realize the vast promise of mobile multimedia, mobile multimedia applications and services must become dramatically more powerful and easier to use.
MoMM 2003 aims to provide a forum for the discussion and exchange of ideas and information by researchers, students, and professionals on the issues and challenges brought by the emerging wireless technologies for mobile multimedia applications and services.
