Track 3: New Technologies & Services



The New Technologies & Services Track will focus on all novel aspects of technology, applications and services development to help create pathways for the development of common goals in convergent networks environments. The purpose of this Track is to bring together researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry, to discuss, to share their experiences, and to exchange and disseminate expertise and new ideas on theoretical and practical deployment aspects of new technologies, next generation networks, and new trends, architectures and protocols for multimedia and audio-visual services as well as smart services (user-centric, personalized, contextualized, etc.).


Over the last three decades the Internet has undergone massive transformations, migrating from a relatively focused scientific research network to a ubiquitous and pervasive communications medium for the masses. This change has been brought about by immense research progress in all layers of the network hierarchy, i.e., ranging from new applications, to service-aware networking protocols and hardwares allowing for a host of new research challenges and business opportunities.
