In the present era of research and technology, multimedia systems haveseen tremendous growth due to the integration of several technologies which includes Big Data, IoT and Networking Technologies. Multimedia based networking applications have been grown significantly in past few years and a lot of research is going on due to advancements in communication technologies. Due to the huge growth in the use of fourth generation (4G) networks and with the possibilities of 5G networks in coming time, there are a lot of possibilities of future research to meet the 5G based demands for development of better multimedia systems. There is a growing demand of an infrastructure to have on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, storages, servers, applications, and services) for efficient decision as well as quality care.

Several emerging concepts like Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Body Wireless Sensor Networks (BWSN), Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud, Fog, Edge, SDN and Big Data Analytics can support IoT for design and development of intelligent systems in diverse domains, e.g., Transportation, Education, Enterprise and Industry etc. Besides these systems, the role of IoT can be seen in different types of healthcare applications such as tele-healthcare system for chronic diseases, medications intake management support, homecare, etc.

Emerging technology (Cloud, Fog, Edge, SDN, Big Data, IoT, Deep Learning) computing provides scalability, flexibility, agility, and ubiquity in terms of data acquisition, data storage, data management and communications. The combination of multimedia and cloud for healthcare, smart cities, surveillance enhances many technical issues for many media-rich applications such as video streaming, serious games, rehabilitation exercise, health sports, e-healthcare and so forth. Some of the issues are: seamless access of medical media content by heterogeneous devices (e.g., mobile phone, laptop, and IPTV), resources capacity demands (e.g., bandwidth, memory, storage, and processors), medical multimedia’s quality of service/Experience/Context (m-QoS/m-QoE/m-QoC) requirements, and dynamic resource allocation for processing of media content.

The goal of this special issue is to bring forward the recent advancements in multimedia systems in context to health care services, smart world applications and precision agriculture related fields. More specifically, it looks for the contributions into the state-of-the-art and approaches, methodologies, systems and innovative use of multimedia-based emerging technology services in different application areas. This special issue on Futuristic Trends and Innovations in Multimedia Systems Using Big Data, IoT and Cloud Technologies is aimed at attracting original works related to the emerging trends and innovations in the field of multimedia systems using big data, IoT and cloud technologies.
