Scope and Topics

The 2nd International Workshop on IPTV Technologies and Multidisciplinary Applications (IWITMA 2010) will be a one-day event focusing on recent advances in IPTV technology and applications. IWITMA 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International
Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 2010) in order to profit from the attendance at IEEE ICME as well as providing this group with recents advances in video that will impact the networks of the future.

The workshop will present innovative technical papers on all aspects of IPTV and converged applications delivery as well as on novel approaches video transmission and network architectures for video. In addition to these papers the workshop intends to have ample time for discussion amongst participants on topics randing from industry trends to actual and future implementation.

The workshop seeks innovative technical papers on all aspects of IPTV in multimedia broadcasting, including architectural standardization, content protection, quality of service and quality of experience, middleware, etc.

The following IPTV related topics are included as to attract attendance from both academia and industry:

• Architectures for IPTV systems especially those targeting multiscreens and combining mobility
• IPTV Service deployments, interactivity, Social TV, datacasting
• IPTV QoS issues (including performance, traffic management and monitoring, etc.)
• IPTV user experience and user experience design
• Video Content Distribution Networks for distributed IPTV services
• Mobile IPTV (system deployment, mobile extension considerations, etc.)
• Transmission aspects including video compression and network coding
• User devices and home networking
• Content protection and rights management
• Network design impacts of video convergence
• Software platforms and middleware for next generation IPTV
• Business, pricing and billing models for evolving IPTV services
• Mathematical and analytical models for IPTV networks
• IPTV content consumption measurement, congestion control, rate control
• IPTV test beds and field trials for multimedia broadcasting applications
• IPTV processing, video coding and processing

Additionally, the workshop plans to bring a distinguished invited speaker to talk on “IPTV in Industry” and especially in emerging IPTV markets, i.e., to discuss original contributions from various industry IPTV domains (e.g.consumer electronics, broadcasters, producers, broadband companies, software and hardware developers, telecom
operators). The objective will be discussing evidences of issues regarding IPTV technologies’ dealing with industry cases in the above areas of interest.

• Regular Paper Abstract Submission: February 13, 2010
• Regular Paper Submission: February 27, 2010
• Notification of Regular Paper Acceptance/Rejection: March 25, 2010
• Final Camera-Ready Paper Due: April 15, 2010

Paper submissions for this workshop should follow the submission format and guidelines for regular ICME papers. Guidelines for paper submission to IWITMA 2010 can be found at

In addittion, Guidelines for IWITMA 2010 follow the authors
guidelines of IEEE ICME 2010 which can be found here:

Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process. The best papers (extended version) of IWITMA 2010 and selected by TPC will be published in a special issue (confirmed) of the Elsevier's Journal Signal Processing: Image Communication; SCI indexed with JCR impact factor.
