Review: ACM Workshop on Advanced video streaming techniques for peer-to-peer networks and social networking

On the 29th of October we had our workshop co-located with ACM Multimedia 2010. The workshop was partly sponsored by the project “ARACHNE: Advanced video streaming techniques for peer-to-peer networks,” funded by the Italian Ministry for Education and Research (www.diegm.uniud.it/arachne), and partly by the EC-funded “P2P-Next” project (www.p2p-next.org).

One of the highlights of the programme was definitely the keynote from George Wright, Head of Prototyping, BBC Research and Development:





Some of the presentations from the workshop received so far can be found here. Impressions from the workshop can be found below.


Another highlight was the demo session featuring P2P-Next's NextShareTV, a set-top box demonstrating live P2P streaming over the open, unmanaged Internet. The demo was running very smoothly and we received a lot of interesting feedback.


Finally, the best paper was selected among the following candidates:
  • Access Control to BitTorrent swarms using Closed Swarms by Keith Mitchell, Njaal Borch, Ingar Arntzen, Dusan Gabrijelcic
  • Improving Quality-of-Experience for Multiple Description Video Transmission in Peer-To-Peer Networks by Simone Milani, Giancarlo Calvagno
  • A Novel Cache Optimization Algorithm and Protocol for Video Streaming in Pure Peer-to-Peer Networks by Carlo Giulietti, Dan Schonfeld, Rashid Ansari
  • P2P Group Communication with Layer-Aware FEC by Yago Sánchez, Cornelius Hellge, Thomas Schierl, Thomas Wiegand
  • P2P streaming with LT codes: a prototype experimentation by Andrea Magnetto, Rossano Gaeta, Marco Grangetto, Matteo Sereno
And the best paper award goes to ...
A Novel Cache Optimization Algorithm and Protocol for Video Streaming in Pure Peer-to-Peer Networks by Carlo Giulietti, Dan Schonfeld, Rashid Ansari

Finally, on behalf of the organizers, I'd like to thank all who contributed to the success of this workshop. I personally hope that you enjoyed the carefully crafted programme and
