As contemporary computing and communication devices foster human interactions in cyberspace, social events are taking place ubiquitously in the form of multimodal adaptive interactions between participants. Cutting edge interactive systems therefore focus on how to deliver multimodal media in different contexts of use to humans in a way that offers better quality of experience.

To achieve this there are a great deal of challenging problems yet to be solved, mainly in how to bring together ICT technologies for context adaptation, inter-device interaction, and media/data communication for the wellbeing of humans. This special issue strives to foster state-of-the-art research pertaining to the area of ubiquitous multimedia networks and services, covering various areas of computation/communication infrastructure, middleware, human-computer interaction, and applications for ubiquitous multimedia.
