Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
Sponsored by ICST
Technically co-sponsored by CREATE-NET
The focus of MOBIMEDIA 2010 is future internet for green and pervasive media.
The promise of a truly pervasive experience is to have the freedom to roam around anywhere and not be bound to a single location, however, the energy required to keep mobile devices connected to the network over extended periods of time quickly dissipates. In fact, energy is a critical resource in the design of wireless networks since wireless devices are usually powered by batteries.
From the perspective of mobile manufacturers the energy consumption problem is critical, not only technically but also taking into account the market expectations from a newly introduced technology. In fact, there exists a continuously growing gap between the energy consumption of emerging radio systems and what can be achieved by
* Battery technology evolution
* Scaling and circuit design progress
* System level architecture progress
* Thermal and cooling techniques
Without new approaches for energy saving, there is a significant threat that the 4G mobile users will be searching for power outlets rather than network access, and becoming once again bound to a single location.
There is added momentum from the European stage for green radio to globally reduce the electromagnetic radiation levels to have a better coexistence of wireless system (less interference) as well as a reduced human exposure to radiation leading to the so called Green Wireless technologies.
Hence, there is a clear need for disruptive strategies to address all aspects of power efficiency from the user devices through to the core infrastructure of the network and how these devices and equipment interact with each other.
In this framework, MOBIMEDIA 2010 will provide an international forum where industry, researchers and academia will be able to interact and exchange experiences, ideas, and research results surrounding all aspects on power saving to envisage a environmentally friendly internet of the future.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished technical papers on the following research topics, but not limited to:
* Cooperative communications
* Cognitive radio networks
* Software defined radio approaches
* Short-range communications
* Energy efficient radio resource management and routing
* QoE multimedia for Future Internet
* P2P multimedia for autonomic wireless infrastructures.
* Energy efficient reconfigurable radio transceivers
* Network coding
* Internet of things
* Cross-layer and Cross-system optimization strategies for wireless multimedia
* User and device location in next generation networks
* Security mechanisms and schemes in cooperative networks
* Resource and mobility management in cooperative network
* Dynamic resource management and bandwidth assignment for multimedia in heterogeneous wireless networks
* IMS for multimedia services in next generation networks
The conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) by Springer.

CALL FOR WORKSHOPS AND SPECIAL SESSIONS
Following the successful track of special sessions and workshops held during the previous MOBIMEDIA edition, MOBIMEDIA 2010 welcomes half/full-day special sessions and workshops focused around interdisciplinary research on future internet for green and pervasive media, specifically targeting:
* Disruptive and evolutionary technologies for energy-efficient future internet
* Mechanisms for streaming Enhanced multimedia Applications across heterogeneous cognitive networks for optimizing Quality of Experience
* Novel radio network architectures enabling the innovative usage of radio spectrum with the aim of radical cost- and energy-reduction
* Enabling technologies to allow energy efficient use of TVWS (Television White Spaces) for wireless communications based on the spectrum sharing business models
* Incentives to encourage cooperation among users and attractive business models for the network/service providers to stimulate and motivate cooperative networking among users and between heterogeneous networks
* Integration of wireless and navigation for the benefit of future mobile radio systems
