Aims and Scope

Mobile Multimedia has become an integral part of our lives. A vast variety of multimedia services like voice, email, instant messaging, social networks, mobile payment and transactions, mobile video conferencing, or video and audio streaming has already shaped the expectations towards current mobile devices, infrastructure, and services. Within the last five years, mobile multimedia has become the accepted standard, driven by developments in end-user devices, radio networks, and backend services. However, many open research questions remain, from limited battery life to heterogeneous data types, increases in quality of service, context-aware adaptation to the environment, or the ever-present security and privacy issues.

The Journal of Mobile Multimedia (JMM) 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 multimedia technologies for mobile multimedia applications and services, and the control and management of such networks to support multimedia applications.

The journal is devoted to the publications of high quality papers on theoretical developments and practical applications in mobile multimedia. Original research papers, state-of-the-art reviews, and technical notes are invited for publications. While JMM covers a broad range of topics, we are soliciting papers that provide a perspective on all aspects of mobile multimedia, including, but not be limited to:
