COST was delighted to host a session at this year’s European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2015). This session took place at the Room Molière on Wednesday 01 July, from 16:30 to 18:00, and was entitled: SPS07: COST Highlight - Optimal End-to-End Multimedia Communication Networks.

EuCNC 2015 was the 24th edition of a successful series of a technical and scientific conference open to the world research community, sponsored by the European Commission, in the area of Telecommunications, focusing on communication networks and systems, and reaching services and applications. It aimed at showcasing the results of the consecutive programmes on R&D and projects co-financed by European programmes, as well as presenting the latest developments in this area. The conference had regular oral and poster sessions, as well as panels, tutorials, workshops and keynotes. The conference was a not for profit organisation, hence, registration fees were as low as possible, and all surplus will be made available in grants. The conference was to be indexed in the major databases. Best Paper Awards were granted. Accepted and presented papers were published in the EuCNC’2015 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. This year’s conference motto was “5G, Shaping the Vision”.

Science Officer Dr Ralph Stübner also explained why researchers should network and why events like EUCNC can only boost networking opportunities via the EU CNC  video blog

COST Highlight - Optimal End-to-End Multimedia Communication Networks :

The globalisation of data communications and services through Internet has been boosted by some key drivers in the last decade, being the most relevant the new user devices and human interfaces, and the mobile and wireless communications networks, which in conjunction facilitate the use and the immediate access to multimedia and multimodal contents and applications. These facts have boosted the demand of data services, with high impact on the Mobile Networks, finding the limits of the 3G capacity and accelerating the deployment of 4G technologies and the expansion of such systems to new spectrum bands. While the access technologies evolve, and networks are renewed and optimised, users expect getting the maximum Quality of Experience (QoE) in user-centric multimedia services. This is even more relevant when the demand of video services has reached the highest increase rate so far, and it is expected to maintain an exponential growth for the next 5 years.

This Special Session intended to initiate a debate on current challenges and balanced solutions to provide and guarantee the QoE and seamless connectivity to users in user-centric multimedia services keeping high throughput, high reliability, affordable costs and low energy consumption in a wide variety of networks such as radio access networks (RANs).  This session included results provided at COST Actions IC1003 (Qualinet) and IC1004 on the cooperative technologies aimed to optimise the efficiency of user-centric multimedia communication while maintaining high QoE and low energy consumption.

The Session was chaired by Prof. Tatiana Kovacikova , Head of Science Operations, COST
