Papers resulting from the competition constitute a separate section of these Proceedings.

Each paper, found in this volume, was refereed by at least two referees and the acceptance rate of regular full papers was ~19.3% (96 papers out of 497 general submissions).

The program of FedCSIS required a dedicated effort of many people. Each event constituting FedCSIS had its own Organizing and Program Committee. We would like to express our warmest gratitude to all Committee members for their hard work in attracting and later refereeing 497 submissions (regular and data mining).

We thank the authors of papers for their great contribution to research and practice in computing and information systems. We thank the invited speakers for sharing their knowledge and wisdom with the participants. Finally, we thank all those responsible for staging the conference in Prague. Organizing a conference of this scope and level could only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a highly capable team taking charge of such matters as conference registration system, finances, the venue, social events, catering, handling all sorts of individual requests from the authors, preparing the conference rooms, etc.

We hope you had an inspiring conference and an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Prague. We hope to meet you again for FedCSIS 2018 in Poznań, Poland.

Preface Preface (hide)

JAWS are the Joint Agent-oriented Workshops in Sinergy at the annual FedCSIS conference. This section presents the events and papers of the 7th edition in this series, which includes the 11th edition of the Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MAS&S) and the 9th Agent-Based Computing - from Model to Implementation (ABC:MI) workshops, the longest standing in the series. The JAWS event provides researchers on agent-based systems and their applications from all over the world the opportunity to meet together. Since its first edition (Szczecin, Poland, 2011), the JAWS workshops have been expanded their scope to become well-recognized international events in their fields. Their papers have been published in English by prestigious publishing houses (this year by IEEE Press).

The organizational structure of JAWS 2017 is similar to other international scientific workshops. The backbone is the scientific program and the open debates on the main topics about agents.

The scientific program of the event is organized by the different workshops under the umbrella of JAWS, with common guidelines to guarantee an homogeneous quality level. Each submitted paper has been reviewed by three members of the Program Committee (PC), coordinated by the corresponding Workshop Chairs. In case of potential conflicts of interest, reviewers from FedCSIS but outside those of JAWS were recruited to write the reviews. The PC consisted of 25 researchers from 7 different countries. The full list of chairs, PC members, and reviewers can be found in the pages of these FedCSIS proceedings.

JAWS 2017 has received 12 papers from all over Europe, attesting to the truly international nature of the event. After review by the international PC, 6 papers have been accepted for presentation and published in this volume. These numbers are similar to those of the last edition.

Acknowledgment

Preface Preface (hide)

The 10th International Symposium on Multimedia Applications and Processing (MMAP'17) within the framework Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS)—https://fedcsis.org/2017/mmap addressed several themes related to theory and practice within multimedia domain. The enormous interest in multimedia from many activity areas (medicine, digital government, e‐commerce, public safety, entertainment, education, advertising etc.) led researchers and industry to make a continuous effort to create new, innovative multimedia algorithms and applications.

The concept of multimedia from the traditional idea of ‘multi‐mediums’ such as text, photographs, sides, video and audio tapes (analogue) is being redefined by the use of new computer concepts to integrate the digitized information to include text, graphics, sound, animation and full‐motion. The dreams of multimedia technologists have come true and today we are able to store, transport, access and manipulate digitized multimedia information by simple drag and drop actions or export/import information to and from distant locations. The proliferation of image capturing devices and their diverse applications have enabled multimedia technology to contribute in the advancement of almost every aspect of human life. Multimedia research has evolved at tremendous speed in the last few decades to capitalize on the breadth of such applications, ranging from image/video coding and processing to multimedia communications to the analysis of human behavior to medical diagnostics. Most of these topics involve techniques from artificial intelligence, computer vision, and multimedia, but also human computer interaction, educational science, and psychology.

Multimedia technologies have achieved impressive results in the last years and they may be the key for a revolution in the cultural heritage area. These new technologies in fact can now make available for the public huge amounts of heterogeneous data creating unbelievable opportunities of study and capitalization of the cultural items.

Early information presentation applications of pervasive displays were largely focused on supporting the workplace. More recently, news and advertising information have become commonplace. However, with the trend toward situated displays, and a wide user base, new applications have started to emerge. Perhaps the most common of these are applications for behavior change in which visualization of previously unseen data is used to try and encourage viewers to modify their current behavior—often for health or sustainability reasons. Although the potential for behavior change applications is clear, there remains a question as to the long‐term effectiveness of such interventions.

Multimedia is increasingly becoming the “biggest big data” as the most important and valuable source for insights and information. It covers from everyone’s experiences to everything happening in the world. There will be lots of multimedia big data—surveillance video, entertainment and social media, medical images, consumer images, voice and video, to name a few, only if their volumes grow to the extent that the traditional multimedia processing and analysis systems cannot handle effectively. Consequently, multimedia big data is spurring on tremendous amounts of research and development of related technologies and applications. As an active and inter‐disciplinary research field, multimedia big data also presents a great opportunity for multimedia computing in the big data era. The challenges and opportunities highlighted in this field will foster some interesting future developments in the multimedia research and applications.

Recent advances in computing, networking, storage, and information technology have enabled the collection and distribution of vast amounts of multimedia data in a variety of applications such as entertainment, education, environmental protection, e‐commerce, public safety, digital government, homeland security, and manufacturing. Today, there are lots of heterogeneous and homogeneous media data from multiple sources, such as news media websites, micro‐blog, mobile phone, social networking websites, and photo/video sharing websites. Integrated together, these media data represent different aspects of the real‐world and help document the evolution of the world. Consequently, it is impossible to correctly conceive and to appropriately understand the world without exploiting the data available on these different sources of rich multimedia content simultaneously and synergistically.

Based on the articles, we can conclude that providing the right form of authoring tools for non‐professionals is still a non‐trivial task. We hope these papers are a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners who want to better understand the state of the art and the upcoming challenges in this fascinating field.

Quality of experiences and user experience are important aspects of future multimedia services. The perceptual quality of a multimedia system with multiple quality metrics is the combined quality perceived by subjects when using the system’s user interface. There have been several previous studies on developing a general method for optimizing the perceptual quality of multimedia systems. Researchers conducted studies to combine existing quality metrics with metric selection using offline psychophysical measurements or using a heuristic method, such as evolutionary algorithms. However, these approaches are limited in that they depend on existing quality metrics and just provide a framework for combining them. There have also been approaches that use a black‐box method to optimize multimedia systems without well‐modeled metrics.

6th Workshop on Advances in Programming Languages

Preface Preface (hide)

I would like to take the chance to welcome all of you to the 6th Workshop on Advances in Programming Languages, WAPL'2017, that will happen 10 years after the 1st edition hold in Wisla, Poland, in 2007.

A long way has been traversed since the first version of FORTRAN in November 1954. Many research was done, both focussing the theory of formal Languages and Grammars or the development of Programming Language Tools.

Programming Languages appeared to realize the evolution in Computer Science that proposed new programming paradigms; also the birth of new areas for computer application motivated the design of new languages. New languages require new parsing techniques and new compilers. In this context, many years ago language engineers introduced a revolutionary approach to program development: the 'generative approach' based on the existence of tools that can generate effective programs from a formal specification of the program (in that case, from a grammar).

However the appearance of languages tailored for specific targets, the so-called Domains Specific Languages (DSL), aiming at offering an easier and more elegant way to cope with problems in concrete applications, justified the never ending evolution of research work in the field of formal language processing. After the focus in the design of languages and the construction of their interpreters or compilers, in the last 20 years a new field of research rose up: program comprehension and the underlying need for (source) code analysis (techniques and tools).

In this context and being sure that “programming languages are programmers' most basic tools” WAPL aims at providing a forum for exchange of ideas and experience in all the topics concerned with programming languages and systems, from Automata theory and Compiling techniques to Programming tools and environments or Visual programming languages. This year the program that we have put is composed of 10 papers (2 full and 8 short or position papers) that cover different topics, as expected and as we would desire: language definition, grammars and parsing; Compilers and High-performance computing; source-code annotation/analysis and their applications; Modeling and Testing.

I hope you enjoy and take the best from your attendance. Being sure that your active participation is crucial for the success of the Workshop, we look forward to seeing you all, together with any newcomers, in the next editions.
