CfP: 1st Int'l Workshop on Cross-Layer Operation Aided Multimedia Streaming

IEEE VTC Spring 2011

5th-18th May 2011,  Budapest, Hungary

Workshop Objectives
The object of the workshop is to discuss innovative solutions enabling enhanced video streaming for point to point and point to multi-point transmissions in an IP based wireless heterogeneous system, based on cross layer adaptation of the whole transmission chain. Many areas of improvements classified in the following in four categories are considered in the workshop: i) applications for content delivery; ii) networking; iii) radio access; iv) cross-layer solutions. Indeed, today's approach, relying on traditional separation approaches and focusing on services delivered over homogeneous networks, does not allow to meet the on-going demands to maintain the required Quality of Service (QoS) for each of the users, who have different needs and requirements. This workshop looks into solutions allowing the applicability of a cross-layer design approach to the end-to-end multimedia streaming.
