CALL FOR PAPERS - FutureTV-2011: Making Television Personal & Social

2nd International Workshop on the Future of Television

June 29, 2011 at EuroITV 2011, Lisbon, Portugal

The growing amount of data available on the social and semantic Webs, APIs to access and manipulate that data, and trends towards common identifiers and metadata schema allow future television new opportunities to link TV viewing with both the viewer’s personal Web profiles on social networks, and with social activities across the Web also from friends and similar people.

The second edition of this workshop will build on research, services and results from the NoTube project, bringing NoTube experts together with the wider iTV research and enterprise community to explore the new possibilities inherent in social Web, semantic Web, Linked Data and semantic TV to produce future, new, innovative services and platforms for TV which is more personal and more social. This goes beyond the existing state of the art social TV through the introduction of open Web standards, semantic Web technology and Linked Data content.

With this workshop we seek submissions related to addressing the gaps in the state of the art for making social-semantic-Television a reality as well as the consequenes on schemas, services, and standards:

* Re-use of social Web data for TV program adaptation, recommendation, selection or mash-ups
* Re-use of semantic Web data for TV program adaptation, recommendation, selection or mash-ups
* Generation of social Web data from TV watching and interaction with the TV program
* Generation of semantic Web data from TV watching and interaction with the TV program
* User profiling with respect to interests, TV preferences, or current mood
* Integrating existing broadcast TV infrastructure with the social and semantic Web
* Annotation of TV programming with social or semantic Web data schemas
* Applying semantic and social Web applications on the television, including development for the set top box, design of appropriate user interfaces and exploration of user interaction patterns
* Integration of semantic and social Web data in TV-based applications

Important Dates

Submission deadline: April 29, 2011
Notifications: May 20, 2011
Camera ready copy: May 30, 2011
Workshop day: June 29, 2011

We seek short and long paper submissions as PDF. Papers should follow the ACM style guidelines and not exceed 3 pages (short paper) or 9 pages (long paper). Short papers are ideal for informing about new research or implementation at an early stage or proposing new ideas about future television. Long papers are ideal for reporting on finished or near-finished research and implementation, including evaluations and lessons learnt. We will aim to accept a mix of both short and long paper submissions. Submissions will be invited to present and to provide a demo during the workshop.

We aim to publish the workshop proceedings publicly at CEUR-WS. They will also be distributed at EuroITV 2011 in the adjunct proceedings.

The submission link will be published soon.
