Scope:
The 23rd International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT 2016) will be held in Thessaloniki, a modern metropolis bearing the marks of its stormy history and its cosmopolitan character, known for its hospitality and cuisine.

This year’s theme “Expansion to Small” aims to draw research community’s attention to the enormous anticipated expansion of communication systems through small architectures and devices. Small cells, short wavelengths, small sensors, small scale communications going down to molecular level are expected to boost next generation communications leading to Big Data networking, massive Internet of Things and green, energy efficient applications. Additionally, high quality papers on all aspects of contemporary research and applications of telecommunications are welcome.

The Organizing Committee invites proposals for Workshops/Special Sessions/Tutorials/Demos to be held in ICT 2016. More information can be found in http://ict-2016.org (under “Submissions”).

TEMU 2010 – International Conference on Telecommunications and Multimedia

TEMU 2010 – July 14-16 2010, Chania, Crete, Greece
Special Session: “Advances in Multimedia Delivery” (AMD)

Scope
Latest advances in multimedia content encoding and representation, including HDTV, 3DTV, multi-view video and associated added-value interactive services, are offering to the end user a truly rich multimedia experience. On the other hand, the scope of media delivery itself is expanding beyond traditional broadcast TV to active content sharing among all users. It is thus self-evident that the reliable, efficient and timely handling of all these enhanced multimedia services is not only a sine qua non but also a significant challenge for new wired and wireless networking architectures. Future networks, at core and access level, should be able to provide to the end user ubiquitous access (at home, at office and on the move) to both live and on-demand rich media content. Towards this aim, a significant number of research efforts are being carried out throughout the world.

The following research areas fall within the scope of this Special Session: – Next-Generation infrastructures for multimedia delivery – Satellite and terrestrial multimedia broadcasting systems – Mobile TV
– Interactive broadcasting
– IP and non-IP transport and session control protocols
– IPTV platforms and standards
– Web Radio and WebTV
– Peer-to-peer streaming architectures
– Scalable media transmission
– Error protection and concealment
– AAA (Authentication, Authorization, Accounting) issues
– Security, encryption and digital rights management for multimedia content – Quality of Service and Quality of Experience
– Market trends and business aspects

We invite original contributions that are not submitted concurrently to another conference. Both PDF and source (Word, LaTEX) versions of the paper, including figures and tables should be submitted electronically to any of the Special Session chairs (see e-mails below). Accepted papers will be formatted according to the TEMU instructions (http://www.temu.gr/2010/author.html).
