[PVS] CFP - 1st IEEE International Workshop on FUTURE MULTIMEDIA NETWORKING (FMN´08)

Dear colleague,

Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of the same announcement.





1st IEEE International Workshop on



2008 September 17, Cardiff, Wales, UK

Technical Co-sponsorship by IEEE Communications Society


Collocated with IEEE NGMAST 2008 (http://www.ngmast.com/)





Real-time multimedia services are contributing to enhance our life experience and are expected to be among the most important applications in future generation networks. The management of real-time multimedia services is an important key to attract and keep customers, while increasing profits to content providers. The efficient delivery and deployment of real-time multimedia services over emerging diverse and heterogeneous wired and wireless systems is a challenging research objective. The interoperability of applications, transport and network protocols, as well as, the demand for improved Quality of Service (QoS) and user experience, and seamless mobility control creates a challenging study field and also possibilities for research of novel communication protocols, architectures and methods towards Future Multimedia Networking Systems.


The objective of the Future Multimedia Networking (FMN´08) workshop is to discuss state-of-the-art research and developing activities contributing to aspects of multimedia systems, and networking. We are inviting both theoretical and experimental papers as well as work-in-progress research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Multimedia management in next generation networks

- Content delivery networks

- Audio-visual systems

- Novel protocol for multimedia services

- Grid networking for multimedia services

- Multimedia in personal, sensor and ad-hoc networks

- Multimedia in peer-to-peer networks

- Quality of service management in multimedia networks

- Management of service oriented architectures

- Seamless mobility of multimedia services

- Novel multimedia architectures/platforms

- Multicast and broadcast multimedia service management

- IP multimedia system operations and management

- Resource reservation for multimedia services

- Multimedia in mobile and broadband wireless access networks

- Experiments/lessons from recent deployments

- Performance evaluation of multimedia services

- Network measurement/monitoring for multimedia services

- Pricing, accounting and billing for multimedia services

-Reliability, availability, serviceability of multimedia services


Special Issue Journal Publication: Best papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of International Journal of Internet Protocol Technology (IJIPT).
