Services and Applications

Neeli Prasad, Head of Research, Center for TeleInFrastruktur, Aalborg University, Denmark

Driven by rapidly changing requirements and business needs, ICT and applications are undergoing a paradigm shift: components are replaced by services, distributed over the network, and composed and reconfigured dynamically in a demand driven way into service oriented architectures.

It is quite impressive to see how asynchronous communication forms have reached wide success, yet by offering support only to traditional, text-based information exchange. These services are today at the basis of what has been defined as Social Networking, i.e. the possibility for individuals to interact, share, cooperate with others via the communications technology. The impact of such services can be measured not only in terms of the specific and direct service provided to their user constituency and their Quality of Life (QoL), but also in terms of their contribution to the emergence of new communication styles, network architecture, frameworks and language patterns.

The ability of the user to interact in a focused and personalized manner, as this is offered through the social networks, can transform the traditional one broadcast for all, to one broadcast, transformed to the needs of everyone.

New issues are raised related to actions of users/viewers and how this is influenced and influences viewing experience, how it affects the QoL and ways it can improve it, techniques for fusing user generated content in a non intrusive and annoying or destructing way with the broadcasted content and also how can user generated content modify the transmission.

Speakers from Industry and Academia will be invited to have discussion on the topics:

  • Social Interaction and Quality of Life (QoL)
  • Trusted Network Architecture and Infrastructure
  • Business Models
