WiMob’2010

WiMob’2010 : 6th IEEE International Conference on Wireless& Mobile Computing, Networking& communication Niagara Falls, Canada
October 11-13, 2010
http://conferences.computer.org/WiMob2010

SCOPE:
The research area of mobile computing has become more important following the recent widespread drive towards
mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks and vehicular ad hoc network tracking technologies and their
applications. The availability of high bandwidth 3G infrastructures and the pervasive deployment of low cost
WiFi infrastructures and WiMAX to create hotspots around the world serve to accelerate the development of
mobile computing towards ubiquitous computing.
WiMob’10 addresses three main areas:
– Wireless Communications
– Mobile Networking, Mobility and Nomadicity
– Ubiquitous Computing, Services and Applications

This conference aims to stimulate interactions among participants and enable them to exchange new ideas and
practical experience. WiMob’10 is the sixth in a series of annual conferences: twice in Montreal, Canada in
2005 and 2006; in New York, USA in 2007; in Avignon, France in 2008; and in Marrakech, Morocco in 2009.

IMPORTANT DATES:
Paper submission due: May 16, 2010
Notification of acceptance: July 16, 2010
Final manuscripts due: July 30, 2010

High quality original papers that at the time of submission are neither published nor submitted for
publications elsewhere are solicited. Please visit
http://conferences.computer.org/WiMob2010 for
details and submission information. Only timely submissions through EDAS at http://edas.info will be accepted.

3rd International Workshop on,,FUTURE MULTIMEDIA NETWORKING

3rd International Workshop on

FUTURE MULTIMEDIA NETWORKING

http://fmn2010.kt.agh.edu.pl

June 17-18 2010, Krakow, Poland

IEEE Technical Sponsorship

in Collaboration with ACM

Sponsored also by IET and the British Computer Society

AIMS AND GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP

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. At the same time the complexity and dynamics of content networks require special solutions in order to provide efficient delivery and deployment of real-time multimedia services. Further, 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. Thus, one major challenge is the ever growing complexity of communication management and network maintenance. Solutions are required in which services, management and administration entities interact and behave autonomously, with the overall goal of creating content centric networks.

The objective of the Future Multimedia Networking – FMN 2010 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:

– Content centric networks

– Autonomic content networks

– Audio-visual systems

– Novel protocols for multimedia services

– Grid networking for multimedia services

– Multimedia in personal, sensor and ad-hoc networks

– Multimedia in peer-to-peer networks and autonomic network infrastructures

– Multimedia in mobile and broadband wireless access networks

– Quality of service management in content centric networks

– Quality of experience management in content centric networks

– Seamless mobility of multimedia services in emerging content networks

– Multicast and broadcast multimedia service management

– Resource reservation for multimedia services

– Context-aware content distribution

– Energy-efficiency in content centric networks

– Multimedia Security

PARALLEL POSTER/DEMONSTRATION SESSION

A parallel poster/demonstration session entitled “Demonstrations on Future Multimedia” will be organized along with the main workshop. This event encourages researchers to present and discuss “work-in-progress” or “experience-in-practice” of their current implementations and research prototypes that cover the topics of FMN 2010. Authors are invited to submit a short paper of up to 6 pages following the format of workshop. All accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings of FMN 2010. The papers should specifically focus on implementation and practical aspects such as

– Experiments/lessons from recent multimedia deployments

– Quality of Service/ Quality of Experience of multimedia applications

– Performance evaluation of multimedia services

– Network measurement/monitoring for multimedia services

PUBLICATION

Special Issue Journal Publication: Extended versions of best papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of a well-known SCI-indexed journal. Selected best papers of FMN’09 will appear in a Special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications journal.
