1st IEEE International Workshop on
2008 September 17, Cardiff, Wales, UK
Technical Co-sponsorship by IEEE Communications Society
FMN´08 is an official workshop of the IST FP6 NoE CONTENT

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
- Quality of experience 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).

The proceedings of the workshop will be published by IEEE CPS and on
IEEExplore digital library.


Full papers reporting original and unpublished research results on IEEE
FMN´08 topics are solicited. Submissions must not be under consideration for
publication elsewhere while being evaluated for this conference.

- Formatting: The proceedings will be published by the prestigious IEEE
Computer Society Press. Submissions must be in IEEE two-column format and
must not exceed 6 pages, including figures, tables and references. The cover
page should contain title, author names, affiliations, and email addresses.
Please indicate clearly the corresponding author. Include up to five
keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 300 words.

- How to submit: The paper submission for IEEE FMN´08 will only be accepted
through the EDAS Paper Submission System accessible from the link on the
website. Only papers in PDF will be accepted for reviewing. Submissions as
e-mail attachment will not be accepted.
