[PVS] [FMN 2009] Call for Participation



Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to take part in the Second
International Workshop on Future Multimedia Networking (FMN 2009) from 22 to
23 June 2009 in Coimbra, Portugal. FMN 2009 focuses on various aspects of
multimedia systems, content networking, and autonomous communication. A
specific emphasis has been placed on upcoming Autonomic Content Networks and
technologies that contribute that contribute to their development.

The program committee accepted 16 full-papers (an acceptance rate of 25%)
and 12 short-papers from several countries. We are also happy to announce
our two keynote speakers: Professor Ralf Steinmetz and Professor Nicolas
Georganas.

For all details of the two-days preliminary program please visit

SCOPE

In recent years real-time multimedia services have been contributing extensively to our life experience and are expected to be among the most important applications in the future Internet. The management of content distribution 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 Quality of Experience (QoE), 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. One major challenge in this context is the ever growing complexity of communication management and network maintenance in this context. Thus, solutions are required in which services, management and administration entities interact and behave autonomously with the overall goal of creating Autonomic Content Networks.

TOPICS

The objective of the Future Multimedia Networking (FMN´09) workshop is to discuss state-of-the-art research and developing activities contributing to aspects of multimedia systems, content networking, and autonomous communication. We are inviting both theoretical and experimental papers as well as work-in-progress research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Autonomous management in next generation content networks
* Content delivery networks and autonomic content networks
* Audio-visual systems
* Novel protocols for multimedia services supporting autonomous network operations
* Grid networking for multimedia services
* Multimedia in personal, sensor and ad-hoc networks
* Multimedia in peer-to-peer networks and autonomic network infrastructures
* Quality of service management in content networks and emerging autonomous content networks
* Quality of experience management in content networks and emerging autonomous content networks
* Management of service oriented architectures
* Seamless mobility of multimedia services in emerging autonomous content networks
* 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, and emerging autonomous content networks
* Context-aware content distribution
