UCMedia 2009 - Call for Workshops

The First International Conference on User Centric Media (UCMedia 2009) http://www.usercentricmedia.org/ invites proposals for workshops that will complement the main conference. 

Sponsored by ICST, Technically co-sponsored by by Create-Net

The main conference will take place on 10 & 11 December 2009. We offer up to four half-day workshops in two parallel strands on 9 December 2009. There will be a  registration fee for workshop attendees, which will be lower than the registration fee for the whole conference.

Workshops offer the opportunity for in-depth exploration of the conference topics and should fall within the scope of UCMedia2009. Proposals on special topics in the field are encouraged. The conference includes the following topics (for a more detailed list of conference topics please refer to the Conference Call for Papers on the conference Website):
- User Centric Media - Forms and production
- User Centric Media - Delivery (over The Future Media Internet)
- User Centric Media - Access, discovery and consumption  

Workshop proposals should be a maximum of 2 pages and contain the following
- A workshop name and acronym
- A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus (including a brief statement of the relevance of the workshop to UCMedia 2009 and a discussion of the particular benefits of the topic to the User Centric Media community).
- A description why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
- A description of the intended format of the workshop (open call for contributions, invited papers, forum discussion, etc.), tentative list of proposed program committee members if applicable, potential attendees; invited speakers if applicable.
- A preliminary workshop agenda and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop.
- The names and email addresses of the workshop proposer and of the proposed workshop organizing committee.

Workshop proposals (in RTF, Word or PDF format) shall be sent within the  deadline by e-mail to: 
workshops at usercentricmedia.org
The received proposals  will be evaluated by the Workshop Organizing Committee. The titles of the  accepted workshops and some brief information about those workshops including  the links to their Websites will be included in the UCMedia2009 Website.

Note: all publishable workshop papers will be published on the UCMedia 2009  Website. A number of the best papers of the conference including workshops will be published in ACM Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) Journal Special Issue on Mobility and User-Centric Media.
