The 2011 International Workshop on Multimedia Communications and Networking (MultiCom 2011 )

The 2011 International Workshop on Multimedia Communications and Networking (MultiCom 2011 ) is dedicated to address the challenges in the areas of delivering multimedia content using modern communication and networking techniques. The workshop looks for significant contributions to multimedia content encoding, network transfer, and quality evaluation in theoretical and practical aspects. The multimedia & networking computing domain emerges from the integration of multimedia content such as audio and video with content distribution technologies. This workshop aims to cover contributions in both the design and analysis in the context of multimedia, wired/wireless/heterogeneous networks, and quality evaluation. It also intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to focus on advanced multimedia and networking performance analysis concepts and establish new collaborations in these areas.

  • Notification of Acceptance: May 12 Extended to May 17, 2011
  • Camera-ready paper Due: May 27, 2011

The 2011 International Workshop on Survivable Large-Scale Information Systems (SLSIS 2011)

Large-scale information systems have evolved from being largely laboratory curiosities with few wide-area deployment to becoming almost ubiquitous in scope. They are now being used in many ways by a wide spectrum of society in a diverse range of topologies, computations, and services. Indeed, virtually all corporations and governments use and provide a multitude of such applications in their supply chain, business-to-business, etc. Similarly, many individuals routinely use dozens of such applications for a variety of entertainment, social, financial, and logistical purposes.

It is of paramount importance that these large-scale information systems are robust, secure, and can be trusted to survive various threat scenarios. This workshop plans to address the survivability of heterogeneous information systems which may fall into various categories such as tightly-controlled information and control systems for critical infrastructures like the electric power grid, grid computing systems for scientific discoveries, cloud computing infrastructures for the private sector, proprietary social networks, and open peer-to-peer networks.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners different disciplines to share and exchange their experiences and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of the survivability of large-scale information systems.

Important Dates
  • Paper Submission: 20 April Extended to May 10, 2011
  • Paper Acceptance: 20 May, 2011
  • Camera-ready Paper: 30 May, 2011
  • Conference Dates: 31 August-02 September, 2011

Workshop on Scalable Solutions for GreenIT (SCALSOL 2011)

Energy-efficiency is one of the most important issues of the modern-day and future computing and communication systems. Due to the importance of power and energy consumption in these systems, various techniques have been investigated and developed. However, these solutions should be able to provide good performance and to cope under an increased workload demand. Moreover, the solutions should be able to preserve or even increase its efficiency when the number of resources increases.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in addressing challenging issues related to scalable solutions for power consumption optimization in large-scale parallel and distributed computing, ambient computing, information technology and communication systems. The workshop covers all energy-efficient related topics of scalable solutions.

Both theoretical papers and papers describing practical experiences are welcome
