Dealing with data from different modalities, is the common case in today's
systems. With the continuous development in network technologies,
acquisition systems, and computational power, creating and sharing
multimedia data is becoming easier for all people around the world. On
Facebook, for example, around 500000 comments are posted and around 135000
images are uploaded every second. Storing, searching in, analyzing, and
utilizing Multimedia data is highly challenging. That is why the
International Conference on Multimedia Computing, Networking and
Applications (MCNA) gives the opportunity for researchers and practitioners
to present their efforts in addressing the challenges of dealing with
Multimedia data. The main topics include but are not limited to:

   - Intelligent Image / Video Analytics
   - Digital Image and Video Processing
   - Image Rendering and Quality
   - Imaging Sensors and Acquisition Systems
   - Content Based Image/Video Retrieval
   - Vision for Graphics
   - Human Behavior Understanding
   - Deep Artificial Intelligence
   - Motion and Tracking Algorithms and Applications
   - Watermarking Methods and Protection
   - Image Data Structures and Databases
