Technological advances are revolutionizing computers andnetworks to supportdigital video and audio, leading to newdesign spaces in computer systems and applications. Underthe surface of exciting multimedia technologies liesa mineof research problems. This volume presents the proceedingsof an international workshop which brought together theleading researchers in allaspects of multimedia computing,communication, storage, and applications.The field of multimedia has witnessed an explosive growth inthe last few years and the selection of papers for thisworkshop was extremely competitive. The volume contains 26full papers and 14 short papers selected from 128contributions, organized into parts on: network andoperating system support for multimedia; multimediaon-demand services; media synchronization; distributedmultimedia systems; network andoperating system support formultimedia; multimedia models, frameworks, and documentarchitectures; and multimedia workstations and platforms.
