>> E2E-QoS4UMA <<

Chairs: Christian Timmerer, Paolo Nesi, and Hermann Hellwagner

The desire to gain access to advanced multimedia content anywhere, anytime, and with any device is still growing. The resulting research issues and standardization activities are covered under the umbrella of Universal Multimedia Access (UMA) and Universal Multimedia Experience (UME) respectively. The following specific challenges are involved, which result in corresponding “building blocks” of a UMA-enabled system:

The primary goal of UMA/UME is to provide the best quality of service (QoS) or user experience with regard to the actual circumstances. The building blocks as mentioned above can be used to build an End-to-End QoS-aware system to cope with the scenarios required by UMA/UME.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are working on different aspects of UMA/UME, ranging from multimedia content production and delivery – including adaptation – in both streaming and non-streaming scenarios to UMA/UME system design and its applications. This workshop targets papers on both theoretical and practical points of view.

Areas of interest for the special session include (but are not limited to):

Important dates:

All submissions and proposals are to be in English and submitted in PDF format by email to christian(dot)timmerer(at)itec(dot)uni-klu(dot)ac(dot)at. Document style is available at the conference website under
