The Journal of Multimedia Processing and Technologies (JMPT) aims to provide a multi-disciplinary forum to present and discuss theory and research, development, architectures, networking, system support tools and applications as well as case studies of multimedia and hypermedia. It also features experimental and survey articles. It seeks to fill the gap that exists between several fields and communities such as image processing, video processing, audio analysis, information retrieval and understanding, data management and mining, security, and education.
The journal is intended for academic researchers, practitioners, industrial professionals, consultants, managers, students, educators, policy makers and engineers working in the field and/or are involved in multimedia system research, design and applications.
All papers are peer reviewed.

Each paper will be handled by the editor-in-chief, Richard Chbeir, who collects three reviews and makes the decision to (a) accept the paper with minor revisions, (b) accept the paper with major revisions, or (c) reject the paper. The editor-in-chief will communicate with the author(s) about the decision, and provide reviews. The goal is to provide the first round of reviews within three months of the paper assignment. The authors with papers requesting major revisions should submit the major revisions within one month after they were informed about the decision. Authors who need more time are kindly requested to contact the Editor. The Editor reserves the right to reject a paper if it does not meet the aims and scope of the journal, it is not technically sound, it is not revised satisfactorily, or if it is inadequate in presentation.
Revised and Final Version Submission
Revised version should follow the same requirements as for the final version to format the paper, plus a detailed document about the modifications authors have made and author's response to reviewer's comments. Authors are requested to use the Journal Style for preparing the final camera-ready version. A example paper is available (LaTex source:). A template in PDF (template.pdf) and an MS word (template.doc) template can also be downloaded. Authors are requested to strictly follow the guidelines specified in the templates.
All enquiries concerning the publication of accepted papers should be addressed to the editor-in-chief.
Authors should upload full original papers in electronic format at the Journal Management Online System (http://www.dline.info/jmpt/submission.php). The papers should not be longer than 20-25 pages, single column, double space, 11 or 12 pt font, including figures, tables and references. If the submitted papers are extensions of existing conference publications, the authors must submit a corresponding letter, specifying clearly what is new in the journal paper and how the submitted paper distinguishes itself from the published conference paper. We require in minimum 25% of new material in such a paper. Any submitted paper must not be fully or partially be submitted to another Journal, Conference, or Workshop!
