IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference

                                                Workshop on Multimedia Communications over Emerging Networks

The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and application developers to exchange ideas, present results and share experience in various aspects of enhancing multimedia communication experiences in emerging networks.

Traditional topics of multimedia communication services like latency, privacy, fairness, transparency, security, manageability, provisioning, monitoring, and accounting may all have different measurements and meanings over emerging networks, such as broadband wireless networks, clouds, virtualized networks, tactical networks, delay tolerant networks, and Internet of things. What's the new measurement metrics, what's the new user expectations, what's the requirements we need to keep when performing traditional multimedia services over emerging networks, what kind of principles we need to hold on both client and server software to have better user experience of multimedia services. We need to answer all those questions to provide multimedia services over emerging networks to users. In addition, we also need to identify and develop new features and applications specifically for multimedia communications over emerging networks.

Topics of interest addressing the challenges including but not limited to: 

*Quality of Service (QoS) issues of multimedia services and applications over emerging networks
*Quality of Experience (QoE) issues, such as latency, fairness, and transparency of multimedia services and applications in emerging 
*Security and privacy issues of multimedia services and applications in  emerging networks
*User Interface (UI)/Human-Computer Interaction(HCI)/User Experience(UX) of multimedia service and applications in emerging networks
*Context-based communications over emerging networks
*Customer relationship/feedback analysis of multimedia communication services over emerging networks
*Manageability, provisioning, monitoring, and accounting of multimedia communication services over emerging networks
*Novel multimedia communication services and applications over emerging networks
*Signal processing for multimedia communications over emerging networks
*IPTV over emerging networks
*Sensor network technologies for multimedia communications
*P2P communications over emerging networks
