== Scope ==

With the fast developments in electronics industry and the amazing growing
of the potential customers, multimedia are increasingly ubiquitous: more and
more people live in a world of Internet pop-ups and streaming television,
mobile phone texting and video clips, MP3 players and pod-casting.
Especially, there have been rapid advancements in 3D techniques and
technologies. A number of systems have been developed for dynamic 3D
reconstruction from multiple view videos over the past decade. Hardware has
both improved and become considerably cheaper, making real-time and
interactive 3D available to the hobbyist, as well as to the researcher.
There have been major studies in such areas as molecular modeling,
photogrammetry, flight simulation, CAD, visualization of multidimensional
data, medical imaging, tele-operations such as remote vehicle piloting and
remote surgery, and stereolithography. In computer graphics, the
improvements in speed, resolution, and economy make interactive stereo an
important capability. Old techniques have been improved, and new ones have
been developed. True 3D is rapidly becoming an important part of computer
graphics, visualization, virtual-reality systems, and computer gaming.
Numerous 3D systems are granted patents each year, but very few systems move
beyond the prototype stage and become commercially viable. Here we treat the
salient 3D systems. Therefore, the 3D contents and applications will be the
trends of the future multimedia communication. This special issue invites
high quality scientific contributions in 3D multimedia communication, with a
focus on how to apply the semantic 3D technologies to the acquisition,
generation and transmission. Moreover, the discussions on future challenges
in 3D content, codec, design and implementation of related multimedia
communication are also encouraged.

The objective of this Special Issue is to invite high state-of-art research
contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address the broad
challenges of integrating ubiquitous media technologies into everyday
objects, devices and activities with the communications and computing
techniques of the multimedia signal for the current novel and future network
services. Original papers describing completed and unpublished work not
currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference/special
issue are solicited.

== Topics of primary interests include, but are not limited to: ==

--- 3D/2D content generation, representation focusing on low-cost
3D/2Dvideo codec

--- Multimedia development, fusion and application in 3G, sensor network,
IOT (internet of things), etc

--- New applications of 3D/2D modeling

--- Network design for 3D/2D video transmissions

--- Solutions of 3D/2D signal transmission over wireless network

--- Multimedia application for mobile terminals and embedded systems

--- Error resilience and concealment for 3D/2D

--- 3D/2D signal Performance evaluation, QoS, QoE, etc
