	13th IEEE International Workshop on Networking Issues in Multimedia  
Entertainment (NIME'18)
	September 9, Co-Located with IEEE International Symposium on  
Personal, Indoor and
		Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC) 2018
		September 9-12, 2018, Bologna, Italy
| Theme and Scope  |
The growing availability of digital contents and the simultaneous cost  
reductions in storage, processing, and networking is driving the  
growth of the entertainment technology. While in the past  
entertainment technology traditionally offered predominantly passive  
experiences, continual advances in network and computer technologies  
are providing tools for implementing greater interactivity and for  
enabling consumers to enjoy more exciting experiences, such as, for  
example, interactive digital TV, interactive theatre and orchestrated  
music and sound design. This phenomenon is pulling together an  
extremely diverse group of experts specializing in different technical  
areas, such as networking, computer graphics, artificial intelligence,  
games, animation, multimedia design, human-computer interaction,  
educational media and software engineering. Even though high-tech  
entertainment promotes interdisciplinary fusion, yet only the ubiquity  
of wireless/wired communication is considered suitable for accepting  
the challenge of building a large interactive environment for the  
delivery of the maximum entertainment value to millions of consumers  
worldwide. In this respect, there is a great hope that the wired and  
wireless may take over this complex scenario for fulfilling the  
consumer expectations. The 13th IEEE International Workshop on  
Networking Issues in Multimedia Entertainment provides an open forum  
for researchers, engineers and academia to exchange the latest  
technical information and research findings on next-generation  
networked multimedia concepts, technologies, systems, and applications  
for entertainment covering existing deployments, current developments  
and future evolution. Authors are solicited to submit complete  
unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to, topic areas:

Application for Entertainment
* Architectures, Platforms and Protocols for Networked Games
* Internetworking, Vertical Roaming and Session
* Handoffs for Entertainment (Internet to WLAN, to 3G/BT/...)
* Home LANs, Body and Personal Area Networks for Entertainment
* Media and Device Adaptation
* Music and Movie Distribution
* Next Generation Wireless Technologies for Entertainment  
(IEEE802.11n/ac, UWB and Beyond)
* Opportunistic Multi-hopping and Opportunistic Networks for Entertainment
* QoS and Security Support for Entertainment
* Resource and Service Discovery Technologies
* Technologies for Networked In-Home/Car/Flight/Train Entertainment
