***** Publication *****
ALL accepted MoMM2014 papers will be published by ACM International Conference Proceedings Series and the supplemental proceedings and indexed appropriately in all major indexes. Selected high-quality papers will be invited to be published, after revision and extension, in special issues of international journals and in a book in the Book Series: Atlantis Ambient and Pervasive Intelligence published by Springer.

**** Scope *****
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 open, 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.

MoMM2014 is the 12th edition in the series of the highly successful International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing and Multimedia. Recently, MoMM has been held in Vienna (2013), Bali (2012), Ho Chi Minh City (2011), Paris (2010), Kuala Lumpur (2009), and Linz (2008). This year, Kaohsiung will host MoMM2014. The MoMM conference series has provided opportunities to researchers, graduate students, and industry practitioners to address recent research results and current industry practices in the area of mobile computing and multimedia.
We invite three types of submissions: Full Technical Papers, Short Position Papers, and Demonstrations. A Full Paper should provide solid conceptual and theoretical foundation and substantial support for its results and conclusions as a significant contribution to the field. A Position Paper is not expected to be theoretically or empirically thorough, but represents an earlier stage of work. Examples are demonstration or prototype work, preliminary user studies, or work in progress, i.e. a report on the latest emerging ideas, approaches, methodologies, systems and application scenarios. A demonstration is intended to showcase novel concepts and innovative technologies which are at advanced stage and have already been implemented in working prototype systems. The informal setting of the demonstration session encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about presented work, while the accompanying short paper should describe the scientific aspects, concepts or methods underpinning the hands-on demonstration. Accepted papers and demonstrations from all three categories will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.
