Workshop Program Communication and Networking Techniques for Contemporary Video

3rd Communication and Networking Techniques for Contemporary Video Workshop
(CNTCV 2017)
Monday, 1st of May 2017 ● 13:30 – 17:00 ● Room: Georgia 11
The aim of the CNTCV workshop is to bring together researchers working on real-time communication, storage, and caching techniques for contemporary video. Therefore, the focus of the workshop will be mainly on experimental and theoretical aspects of networking and communication layer techniques that tackle the recent explosive growth in video traffic, particularly over wireless networks. Hence, the ultimate objective of this workshop is to bring closer researchers working on these emerging problems and share their latest results, formulate new problems from both communication and networking perspectives, and create awareness about their practical significance.
