Demonstrations on Future Multimedia Networking


A parallel poster/demonstration session entitled “Demonstrations on Future Multimedia and Autonomic Content Networking” will be organized along with the main workshop. This event encourages researchers to present and discuss “work-in-progress” or “experience-in-practice” of their current implementations and research prototypes that cover the topics of FMN’09. Authors are invited to submit a short paper of up to 6 pages following the format of workshop. All accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings of FMN’09. The papers should specifically focus on implementation and practical aspects such as:

·        Experiments/lessons from recent deployments

·        Performance evaluation of multimedia services

·        Network measurement/monitoring for multimedia services

Posters are well suited to controversial work that can generate discussion or promising new ideas which have not been thoroughly evaluated. Live demos provide an opportunity to demonstrate the feasibility and usefulness of your research.


Poster/demonstration reporting original and unpublished research results on FMN´09 topics are solicited. Submissions must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere while being evaluated for this workshop

·        Formatting: The proceedings will be included in the proceedings of FMN'09 and published by Springer-Verlag - LNCS series. The maximum size of posters/demos should be 2500 words including tables and figures. Please adhere to the formatting standard for a 6-page manuscript of Springer-Verlag LNCS. The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address.

·        How to submit: Submissions for DEMO-FMN 2009 will only be accepted through the EDAS Paper Submission System accessible from the link on the website. Only posters/demos in PDF will be accepted for reviewing. Submissions as e-mail attachment will not be accepted. Posters/demos can be registered first and then uploaded at any time up to the paper submission deadline!
