As mobile devices are enhanced continuously with more resources, wireless infrastructures provide support to a growing number of specific purpose environments. Advances on sensor technology, wireless environments, Information Retrieval, Personalization, and Content Based Image Retrieval introduce new possibilities in various sectors, realizing the anytime-anywhere access to multimedia information. This Special Session investigates Secure Retrieval and Dissemination of Information (text and image) in Distributed and Wireless specific purpose Environments (SECRET_DIDWE).

The SECRET_DIDWE session aims at providing researchers and professionals with an insight on:

Wireless architectures to enable authorized users to access sensitive information in a secure and transparent manner.

Policy-based architectures utilizing wireless sensor devices, advanced network topologies and software agents. Applications related to remote monitoring of patients, elderly people, etc.

Evaluation and Integration of Information Retrieval and Personalization techniques: Text Retrieval, and Content Based Image Retrieval techniques. Classification based on various techniques e.g. neural network techniques, fuzzy techniques, and its applications.

Paper contributions from the industry, government, business, academia and research are expected.


Include, but are not limited to the following:

    • Security issues in IT applications. Benchmarks and evaluation of the applications
    • Specific purpose Wireless architectures
    • Agent based architectures. Transparent Information transfer using intelligent agents.
    • Authentication and information access and retrieval in ad-hoc networks and self-organized networks
    • Policies and policy-based architectures
    • Novel methods for Text Retrieval, personalization, and Content Based Image Retrieval and application in specific purpose environments
    • Transparent and secure communication in distributed environments
    • Advanced remote medical treatment services through pervasive environments- Remote monitoring of patients and elderly people
    • Neural network techniques and its applications e.g. SVM based systems that support diagnosis
