and more people live in a world of Internet pop-ups and streaming
television, mobile phone texting and video clips, etc. The future trend of
media-aware contents available in anywhere and anytime is to be more smart
and interactive. Thus, the design of smart and interactive ubiquitous
multimedia devices (SIUMS) has drawn substantial attention from the research
community by considering the aspects of ubiquitous networking, ambient
intelligence, embedded multimedia systems, and smart environments. It is
intended to be a novel efficient and effective component for the Internet of
Things, and will greatly impact everyone’s life in every facet, including
entertainment, socialization, business, healthcare and education.

The goal of this issue is to bring together the state of the art research
contributions that focus on networking and communication aspects for
enabling SIUMS. Contributions are invited from prospective authors with
interests in the indicated special issue topics and related areas of
application. All contributions should be high quality, original and
unpublished elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Networking technologies for interactive multimedia services
• Communication protocols in interactive multimedia sensor networks
• User-centric network communications for multimedia services
• Network and system architectures for SIUMS
• Sensor and RFID networking technologies for SIUMS
• Heterogeneous communications for media-aware network cloud and Internet of
• Ubiquitous networking for interactive and smart healthcare
• Advanced multimedia communications protocols for interactive and smart
