In the era of the digital world and the Internet, cross-media production, 
business models and distribution are being powerfully supported and pushed 
forward by the emergent technologies that help the industry to reduce the 
cost of media production and distribution, while optimising productivities.
AXMEDIS2006 aims to explore all subjects and topics related to cross-media
and digital-media content production, processing, management, standards, 
representation, sharing, protection and rights management, to address the 
latest developments and future trends of the technologies and their 
applications, impacts and exploitation. We are particularly interested in 
exchanging concepts, requirements, prototypes, research ideas, and findings
which could contribute to academic research and also benefit business and
industrial communities. 

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:
* Automatic cross-media production, collection, crawling, composition, 
  formatting, P2P, etc. 
* Formats and models for multi-channel content distribution
* Multimedia standards, e.g. MPEG-7, MPEG-21, DMP, etc.
* High quality audio visual coding
* Multimedia music representation and formatting
* Watermarking and fingerprinting techniques 
* GRID and distributed systems for content production
