With the rapid advances in information technologies, future generation networks will face challenges in providing highly reliable and high-quality performance. Cloud computing represents a paradigm shift from existing IT infrastructures to using the services of software applications, computing and storage over wide-area distribution networks. This trend is being empowered by drastic performance improvement of the IT infrastructure components together with key innovations in the way cloud computing infrastructure is built, such as virtualization, distributed computing, multi-core processors, service-oriented architectures.

Cloud computing technology has been widely used for a variety of applications in recent years. Among them, multimedia services in cloud have become increasingly popular, since multimedia representations are more attractive. The great demands of the economic globalization also foster the spreading applications. In addition, security becomes an important issue for the applications in cloud. This special issue strives to foster state-of-the-art research pertaining to cloud computing in the area of advanced technologies and innovative applications. The emphasis of the issue is on multimedia applications for cloud.
