************* CALL FOR PAPERS ***************** ---------- MoVid 2012 ---------- 4th Workshop on Mobile Video in conjunction with MMSys 2012 http://eecs.ucf.edu/movid/ February 24, 2012 Chapel Hill, North Carolina *********************************************** The focus of this workshop is to present and discuss recent advances in the broad area of mobile video services. The workshop will have the goal of understanding the research and deployment challenges in building the Next Generation Mobile Video services. Specifically, the workshop intends to address the following topics: a) Novel mobile video applications and architectures; (b) Research challenges in developing new techniques for providing rich video experience on wireless mobile devices; (c) New visions and concepts to support high quality video services on heterogeneous mobile devices and network conditions; and (d) Deployment challenges of new and scalable mobile video services. The workshop will provide an interesting venue to discuss widely varying beliefs and understanding being formed among the academic and industrial communities in terms of how next generation mobile video services should be delivered to end-users. The technical program committee invites the submission of original, unpublished technical papers in the following areas (but not limited to): - Mobile video services and applications - Video-on-demand technologies - Video streaming over 3G/4G, LTE, WiFi, WiMax - Peer-to-peer video and audio - Distributed video coding - Adaptive media coding & transport - Middleware support for mobile multimedia - Cross-layer architectures and technologies for mobile video - Wireless 3D video game streaming - Video sensing and ubiquitous video - Video-based health monitoring, surveillance - Video in social media and social network applications - Contextual video capture and delivery - Quality of experience metrics for video - Performance studies: real-time video QoS measurements, subjective video quality assessments - Video streaming over multiple heterogeneous networks - Opportunistic device-to-device video delivery Submission Instructions ======================= Submissions to MoVid 2012 must include new, unpublished, original research. Papers containing substantially similar material may not be submitted to other venues concurrently with MoVid 2012. Manuscripts must be limited to 6 pages, and formatted in strict accordance with ACM proceedings style. All submissions will be handled electronically.
