CFP: 2nd ACM WMuNep, Spain 2006


ACM WMuNeP 2006
Second ACM International Workhop on Wireless Multimedia Networking and
Performance Modeling (WMuNeP '06)

To be held jointly with the 9th ACM MSWiM 2006

October 2-6th, 2006
Torremolinos, Málaga, Spain
Submission Deadline: June 10th, 2006

Selected papers will be published on a special issue of Elsevier's
Computer Networks' Journal

The Second ACM International Workhop on Wireless Multimedia Networking
and Performance Modeling (WMuNeP '06) will be a one-day workshop, held
in conjunction with the 9th Annual ACM Symposium on Modeling, Analysis
and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MSWiM´06). The demand
for wireless multimedia communications thrives in today's consumer and
corporate market. The need to evolve multimedia applications and
services, and their associated protocols for emerging networks is at a
critical point given the proliferation and integration of wireless
systems to intelligent and broadband networks, mobility of people,
data/voice convergence and the integration of computing and
communication in mobile devices.

This workshop is devoted to cover different aspects of wireless
multimedia networking and performance modeling for WLANs, WPANs,
WMANs, WWANs, MANETs and sensor networks such as wireless video and
wireless streaming, systematic design methodologies, algorithms,
synchronization, analysis and performance modeling. The workshop will
provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their
contributions related to the above high-level aspects.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Wireless multimedia network management
Wireless multimedia traffic modeling
Middleware and reflective systems support for wireless multimedia
Proxy-based systems for video transcoding and content distribution
Performance modeling, monitoring and evaluation of wireless multimedia
networks and systems
Multipoint, multicast wireless multimedia services
Deployment of wireless multimedia applications, services and networks
Protocols for wireless multimedia networks
QoS in wireless multimedia networks
Integration of wireless multimedia networks to broadband networks
End-to-end IP multimedia wireless communications
Coding and transmission for wireless multimedia networks
Distributed wireless multimedia services
Content-based wireless multimedia information retrieval tools
Video, streaming, real-time wireless multimedia communications and
Security in wireless multimedia networks
Wireless multimedia right protection and watermarking
Pricing mechanisms for wireless multimedia networks
E-Commerce and related applications for wireless multimedia networks
Multimedia evaluation and processing for wireless networks
Cross layer design for wireless multimedia networks
Analytical modeling of wireless multimedia networks
Software tools for system performance and evaluation of wireless
multimedia networks
Performance comparison of wireless multimedia networks
Case studies showing the role of evaluation in the design of systems
