  • Software Defined Networking for Multimedia applications
  • Network Function Virtualization Technologies for Multimedia applications (vertical and horizontal scaling, resource allocation, fast instantiation of network functions )
  • The role of network based media processing in future network architectures (e.g. super resolution, trans-multiplexing, content insertion, trans-drm, content insertion etc.)
  • Transcoding in future 5G networks and their role in advanced media services (e.g. guided transcoding)
  • Cloud and mobile edge computing (MEC) technologies and their use for multimedia
  • Virtualization and container technologies and their application in multimedia
  • Resource allocation for multimedia in 5G network architectures
  • Security and privacy of media contents in cloud and 5G architectures
  • Interoperability issues and standardization developments in network distributed media
  • Cloud RAN integration with multimedia applications
  • Wireless techniques (millimeter waves) and their application to support of multimedia
