The Sixth Workshop on multiMedia Applications over Wireless Networks (MediaWiN 2011) is an open forum that aims to promote the research in the field of multimedia services over wireless systems. The focal topics of the Workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

Multimedia Services Design and Characterization

*         Cooperative multimedia services

*         Health care, safety and emergency oriented multimedia services 

*         Performance studies for QoS/QoE-based multimedia streaming and VoD

*         Multimedia traffic shaping and cross-layer design

Multimedia Services over Resource-constrained Wireless Networks (WSN, WPAN)

*         Energy efficiency issues in protocols for multimedia over wireless sensor networks 

*         Scheduling and link adaptation techniques

*         Resilience to node failures and network topology variations

*         Low complexity cross layer techniques for multimedia over WSN or WPAN

Multimedia Services over wireless, cognitive, and opportunistic networks 

*         Multimedia services for cognitive wireless networks

*         Multimedia services for opportunistic and delay-tolerant networks

*         Car-to-car and road-to-car multimedia communications in vehicular networks 

*         Multimedia support over mesh and heterogeneous networks 

*         Context aware techniques for enhancing multimedia service support

*         Mobility and handoff management

*         Security issues in wireless multimedia applications

*         Multimedia traffic charging and accounting techniques

Models for Multimedia Applications

*         Mathematical models and quality metrics analysis for multimedia traffic services

*         Measurements-based models for multimedia over wireless 

*         Models and tools for the simulation of multimedia traffic sources 

Experimentation: Testbeds, Field Trials and Empirical Results 

*         Design and implementation of testbeds for multimedia over wireless 

*         Testing of protocols and standards for multimedia over wireless 

*         Experimental comparison among different multimedia over wireless solutions

Emerging Standards and Technologies for Wireless Multimedia Communications

*         Recent work in standardization fora, including IEEE 802.16, 802.21, 802.11aa, 802.11s

*         New network architectures for wireless communications (IEEE 802.11v, CAPWAP)

*         Compression techniques, standards and evaluation
