IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference


                                        3rd IEEE International Workshop on Social TV: the Next Wave 

                                                           9th January, 2011, Las Vegas, Nevada 

                            Satellite Workshop of 8th IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference

                                                                       (IEEE CCNC 2011) 

Social TV is upon us. Already people interact with one another, using their PC, MAC, iPads and phones, while watching TV content and recommending content to be watched later and interact over it. On-screen interaction is enabled by new embedded processors in TVs and more user oriented UIs and interactions. But is this where Social TV ends? This workshop will attempt to answer that question. How can Social TV enable new content consumption and creation paradigms? Will device ecosystems answer the limitations of the device "shell" and create richer experience? How can current network "silos" be broken to provide the end to end services mandated by Social TV? And can Social TV enable the "Green Network" revolution? 

The workshop will request papers on the following topics:

  • architectures beyond cable/IPTV/satellite provision of TV services
  • integration of interaction and enhancements to TV content in linear TV and VOD
  • Social TV in the "TV everywhere" architecture
  • converged television platforms
  • device ecosystems for TV interactivity
  • content co-creation/storytelling in a social TV world
  • device/network composition
  • green video platforms
  • middleware for Social TV
  • user-centric and user-centered design
  • end user adoption of social TV 

Guidelines for Submission
Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. The paper should be used as the basis for a 20 - 30 minute workshop presentation.

Manuscripts should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column) and not exceed 5 pages in length. Submission of papers should be regarded as a commitment such that, if accepted, at least one author of the paper will register and attend the conference; otherwise it will be removed from the IEEE Digital Library after the conference.

  • Papers should be submitted in a .pdf or .ps format via EDAS paper submission website and then selecting the workshop submission link.
  • A separate cover sheet should show the title of the paper, the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail, telephone, and fax) to which the correspondence should be sent.
