ICDT 2010 : The Fifth International Conference on Digital Telecommunications
Call For Papers
The Fifth International Conference on Digital Telecommunications (ICDT 2010) initiates a series of special events focusing on telecommunications aspects in multimedia environments. The scope of the conference is to focus on the lower layers of systems interaction and identify the technical challenges and the most recent achievements.
The conference will serve as a forum for researchers from both the academia and the industry, professionals, and practitioners to present and discuss the current state-of-the art in research and best practices as well as future trends and needs (both in research and practices) in the areas of multimedia telecommunications, signal processing in telecommunications, data processing, audio transmission and reception systems, voice over packet networks, video, conferencing, telephony, as well as image producing, sending, and mining, speech producing and processing, IP/Mobile TV, Multicast/Broadcast Triple-Quadruple-play, content production and distribution, multimedia protocols, H-series towards SIP, and control and management of multimedia telecommunications.
High quality software is not an accident; it is constructed via a systematic plan that demands familiarity with analytical techniques, architectural design methodologies, implementation polices, and testing techniques. Software architecture plays an important role in the development of today’s complex software systems. Furthermore, our ability to model and reason about the architectural properties of a system built from existing components is of great concern to modern system developers.
Performance, scalability and suitability to specific domains raise the challenging efforts for gathering special requirements, capture temporal constraints, and implement service-oriented requirements. The complexity of the systems requires an early stage adoption of advanced paradigms for adaptive and self-adaptive features.
On online monitoring applications, in which continuous queries operate in near real-time over rapid and unbounded "streams" of data such as telephone call records, sensor readings, web usage logs, network packet traces, are fundamentally different from traditional data management.
The difference is induced by the fact that in applications such as network monitoring, telecommunications data management, manufacturing, sensor networks, and others, data takes the form of continuous data streams rather than finite stored data sets. As a result, clients require long-running continuous queries as opposed to one-time queries. These requirements lead to reconsider data management and processing of complex and numerous continuous queries over data streams, as current database systems and data processing methods are nit suitable.
Event stream processing is a new paradigm of computing that supports the processing of multiple streams of event data with the goal of identifying the meaningful events within those streams.
The conference has the following specialized events:
SIGNAL: Signal processing in telecommunications
DATA: Data processing
AUDIO: Audio transmission and reception systems
VOICE: Voice over packet networks
VIDEO: Video, conferencing, telephony
IMAGE: Image producing, sending, and mining
SPEECH: Speech producing and processing
IPTV: IP/Mobile TV
MULTI: Multicast/Broadcast Triple-Quadruple-play
CONTENT: Production, distribution
HXSIP: H-series towards SIP
MULTE: Multimedia Telecommunications
MOBILE: Mobile technologies
MEDMAN: Control and management of multimedia telecommunications
SARP: Software architecture research and practice
STREAM: Data stream processing
TRACK: Tracking computing technologies
We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.
