Call For Papers

Ubiquitous Television (UTV) focuses on the redefinition of the television with a new paradigm of accessing the television at anytime, from anywhere and through any device. Consumers are increasingly turning to the Internet and mobile devices for various types of media transmitted over Internet Protocol (IP), such as TV programs and user-generated contents. Beyond the broadcasting of audio-visual programs, the landscape of TV consists of a few new “technology domains? The newly emerging domains provide specific types of multimedia and operate in specific environments, whereas the traditional TV usually focus on high quality professional media contents and operates in tightly managed environment. With the evolution of Triple Play and multimedia services, the broadcasting TV system is challenged by Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) in terms of pervasiveness, openness and user experience. The real power of IPTV is in the merging of entertainment and communication on an IP-based network, which provides significant opportunities to make the TV experience more interactive and personalized. Meanwhile, another advantage of an IP-based network is the opportunity for true convergence. With the advantage of an All-over-IP network, the opportunity for integration and convergence is amplified. One of the most prominent examples is the Web-Telecom convergence, which benefits from mixing the Web’s openness and flexibility with the Telecom’s reliability and trustworthiness. Considering that the original broadcasting network still works as the main TV delivery channel, the next generation ubiquitous TV will be the convergence of Broadcasting, Internet and Telecom.

UTV 2011 seeks original high quality contributions addressing innovative research in the broad field of TV, media and Internet. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceeding published by IEEE Press (IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing group) and will be included in the IEEE Xplorer.

This workshop aims to provide an international forum for the discussion of challenges in the fields of next generation TV, including theoretical studies, practical issues, and emerging technologies. The topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

* Next Generation TV Networks and Systems
o Network architecture and system deployments
o Content Distribution Networks and Peer-to-Peer
o Content protection and rights management
o Mobile TV (system deployment, mobile extension considerations, etc.)
o System architectures especially targeting multi-screens and combining mobility
o Mathematical and analytical models
o Test beds and field trials

* Ubiquitous TV Services and Enabling Technologies
o Web-Telecom-TV Convergence
o IPTV in managed networks
o Social and collaborative TV
o User-driven model on TV, TV sharing and user-generated TV
o Intelligent and personalized TV
o Context-aware TV
o Multimedia service composition and mashup
o User experience and user experience design in TV-centric services

* Multimedia Processing and Transmission
o Scalable Video Coding and Distributed Video Coding
o 3D technology for TV
o QoS issues (including performance, traffic management and monitoring, etc.)
o Transmission aspects including video compression and network coding

* Multimedia Devices
o Hardware design and software architecture
o Middleware for next generation TV
o User devices and home networking
