The ubiquitous adoption of highly capable mobile Embedded devices combined with the popularity of social networks has generated enormous volumes of multimedia content and heralded a new era of ‘multimedia big data Embedded Systems’. As this new era dawns, we face many exciting opportunities and difficult challenges, each with the potential to deeply impact on how we work and live. Current sources of multimedia data such as the mobile Internet, social networking platforms, wireless multimedia sensor networks and broadcast services will expand to include many new sources derived from Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. This explosive growth in multimedia usage requires new scalable, elastic and responsive cloud-based services, not only for storage but also computational services such as transcoding, content description/tagging, organization, searching and semantic-based retrieval.
There are three key aspects to promoting multimedia big data technologies to practices, namely transport, storage and processing. Amongst the most challenging areas is that of meeting the Quality of Experience (QoE) / Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of mobile multimedia big data services. This challenge is becoming more and more difficult due to of the ever-evolving mobile multimedia devices, limitations on bandwidth in mobile environments, the need to conserve energy (battery life), user mobility and dynamically changing wireless connections. Solving the many challenges of multimedia big data requires new approaches and architectures across the four key areas.

Give a short list of topics of interest:
*Architecture of mobile multimedia big data broadcasting services
*Mobile multimedia service scheduling
*Big data aware cooperative multimedia Embedded broadcasting
*Enhanced QoS/QoE for mobile Embedded multimedia big data
*Multimedia big data content broadcasting on mobile devices
*Distributed storage and distribution architecture of mobile multimedia big data
*Mobile Embedded media processing and compression protocol
*Storage approach of mobile multimedia big data streaming
*Mobile multimedia Embedded sensor networks
*Processing Embedded platform and programming model for mobile big data
*Protocols and algorithms for mobile multimedia big data Embedded service
*Security policy and enforcement issues for mobile multimedia big data Embedded service

The need for difficult-to-machine materials is increasing for opt-electric devices, semiconductors, automobiles, aircraft, and medical devices. Optical glass lenses have been molded with hard molds made of ceramics, such as tungsten carbide (WC) and silicon carbide (SiC), and it is most important to reduce form deviation and surface roughness in these molds. Single crystalline SiC is expected to be applied to semiconductors for the power module devices of automobiles, trains, and electrical devices. Nickel-based super alloys, Ti alloys, CFRP, hardened steels, and other materials are widely used in the aerospace, automobile, and chemical industries because of their superior properties, such as their high operating temperatures or superior specific strengths. Ti alloys are used in medical applications involving bones, dental implants, etc. In order to increase the performance and reduce the cost of these applications, the development of high-precision and high-performance abrasive technologies is very important. This special issue of the IJAT invites papers in the following areas:
• Grinding, finishing, deburring, lapping, polishing, honing, abrasive jet machining, etc.
• Grinding machines/systems and abrasive machines
• Abrasives and tools, tribology between tool and workpiece
• Truing, dressing, ELID (Electrolytic In-Process Dressing) for grinding
• Silicon wafers and hard/brittle materials processing
• Loose/suspended abrasive particle machining/polishing

Special Issue on Active and Passive Vibration Damping in Machine Tools

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2017

Inquiry: IJAT Contact form or e-mail to auto@fujipress.jp IJAT Editorial Office

The successful automation of machine tools requires the avoidance of self-excited chatter vibrations, resulting in a reliable stable state of cutting. Machine tool operators tend to use their machines close to their power thresholds, thus unknowingly driving them toward the limits of their stability. Much progress has been made in the last decades concerning the understanding and prediction of such vibrations, and this has led to higher cutting rates, chip thicknesses, etc.
Several countermeasures, known as active and passive damping, are available to avoid chatter vibrations. However, their industrial use is not common. In fact, industry is somewhat unfamiliar with many of these measures.

This special issue is focused on active and passive damping measures, measures systematically designed and deliberately taken in order to increase the chatter-free depth of cut in machine tools. Authors are requested to point out a successful industrial application or at least a vision for one in their papers. Models demonstrating the effects of the chosen active or passive damping system are desirable. These models can also be used to systematically select the parameters of the system. We are also interested in systems that can be easily applied as low-cost patch-up solutions to improve the behavior of machines already in use.

This special issue is intended to deliver an overview of existing approaches and to introduce additional damping in machine tools.

We are no longer in an age when a product will sell just because it has advanced functions. To meet the diverse needs of users, production systems have responded by introducing mass-customization and mass-personalization schemes. The importance of interactive support as the user uses the product has become widely recognized today. Thus, the product and its associated services have become intertwined, and production systems are shifting from the production of artifacts as products to dealing with “servitized products”, for which systematic use is made of hardware, software, and human ware to carry out functional maintenance, usage process monitoring, and user assistance.

The goal of this special issue is to introduce good examples of design of product, production systems, and interaction of producers with customers with viewpoints of Service Engineering. We examine the relevant concepts and approaches of Service Engineering to improve competitiveness of goods and services. We invite our readers to submit papers on a wide range of topics, such as case studies of product service systems, studies on servitized products, survey of usage processes, or studies on the use of models generated from large data sets on customer behavior to construct systems to identify potential customer needs and seek methods to meet those needs, among others.
