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


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


Proceedings: FMN 2010 papers will be published by Springer-Verlag - LNCS series (pending approval)


One best paper award, selected by the organizing committee, based on referee reviews, will be presented to the author(s) of the best paper submitted to the workshop along with other awards presented during the social event.


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on FMN 2010 topics are solicited. Submissions must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere while being evaluated for this workshop.

*** Full papers (main workshop): The maximum length of papers should be 5000 words including tables and figures. Please adhere to the formatting standard for a 12-page manuscript of Springer-Verlag LNCS. The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address.

*** Short Papers (poster/demonstration): The maximum size of posters/demos should be 2500 words including tables and figures. Please adhere to the formatting standard for a 6-page manuscript of Springer-Verlag LNCS. The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address.

- How to submit:
The paper submission system has two stages. At the first stage, participants register to the SysKon system. Paper submission becomes possible at the second stage. After registering to the SysKon system one can modify her/his article or cancel his/her registration. Only papers in PDF and MS Office Word will be accepted for reviewing. Submissions as e-mail attachment will not be accepted.

To register to the SysKon click on Registration on the FMN’10 web page:

- Peer Review of submitted papers: Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive rigorous peer reviewing.
Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance and clarity of presentation. Selection will be based on full papers. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers of the workshop are expected to be presented and will be included in the workshop proceedings.


Full paper submission deadline: 2 March 2010
Short paper submission deadline: 10 March 2010
Acceptance notification: 5 April, 2010
Camera ready version: 15 April 2010
Early registration deadline: 30 April 2010
