over Wireless Networks (MediaWiN 2009)

organized in association with the

IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC 2009)

5 July 2009, Sousse,Tunisia

MediaWin 2009 Website

Contributions to MediaWiN 2009 should address the technical challenges arising from novel networking scenarios. Visionary,early-stage works that are rigorously presented and can steer discussion to new topics are particularly welcome. We are actively encouraging researchers to share their views, research proposals and solutions for multimedia applications over wireless networks.

Since the first workshop edition in 2006, the proliferation of wireless access technologies and multimedia applications over IP networks is leading to a growing interest in the convergence between wireless networksand multimedia applications. However, the strict requirements of multimedia applications, the unreliability of wireless media and the cost of wireless resources make this convergence very challenging. MediaWiN2009 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry professionals, and academics around the world to meet, present their work, and discuss the latest advances about multimedia services over wireless technology.

All accepted papers will be included in the ISCC 2009 Proceedings, will be available on IEEE Xplore, and will be professionally indexed by the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Service. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Multimedia Services over Wireless Networks

Multimedia Applications and Protocols over Wireless Networks

Experimentation: Testbeds, Field Trials and Empirical Evaluations,Measurement Studies

Emerging Standards, Technologies and Novel Paradigms for Wireless Multimedia Communications

Papers should be written in English. They should not exceed six (6) pages in length in IEEE double column proceedings format,including all figures, tables and references. Papers exceeding this limit will not be reviewed. Papers meeting these requirements will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member. Papers must present original and unpublished work and should not be currently under review by any other conference or journal.
