In recent years real-time multimedia services have been changing the way we communicate, they are expected to be among the most important application areas of the Future Internet. User demand for multimedia services with stringent timing and usability requirements providing access anywhere, anytime and from any device are creating new challenges for research as well as industry. It is expected that multimedia services alone will account for over 90% of all consumer network traffic in the coming years. This is driven by the explosive growth in users sharing multimedia content over the Internet and more and more communication services integrating video, audio, text and images to enhance interpersonal communication. In order to support this, novel network, application, monitoring, measurement, optimization, and storage approaches must be created.
These have to put the human users and their requirements at the heart of the system and operations in order to provide truly human-centric multimedia systems and services. By doing so, they need to overcome the historic divide between HCI approaches and purely techno-centric systems.

The objective of The ACM SIGCOMM 2013 Workshop on Future Human-centric Multimedia Networking (FhMN 2013) is to discuss state-of-the-art research and development activities contributing to all aspects of human-centric multimedia systems and networking. Following its success in the last four workshops, this Fifth Workshop’s theme is “Supporting Human-Centric Multimedia Networking”, and should provide a platform to present and discuss relevant research and development aspects related to user-centric applications and multimedia communication.Topics of Interest include:

- Social multimedia networking
- Future Internet architectures for human-centric multimedia networking
- Emerging human-centric multimedia services and applications (gaming, 3D video, surveillance, sensing)
- Context awareness and human-computer confluence
- Information and story centric networking
- Novel human-centric network management and provisioning
- Human-centric multimedia search and retrieval
- Quality of Experience (QoE) metrics and optimization
- Ethical issues in multimedia surveillance and Internet monitoring - systems and algorithms for safeguarding of information
