Int'l Conf. Telecommunications 8–10 June 2009 Zagreb, Croatia
Technically sponsored by the IEEE Croatia Section and the IEEE Communications Society, ConTEL 2009 will provide an opportunity for the academic and industrial community to address new research challenges, share solutions, and discuss issues in information and communication technology related to modern telecommunications. The conference will include a doctoral symposium event where PhD students can share their research results and experiences with other students at a similar stage in their work, and get constructive criticism and helpful feedback from established researchers. A one-day event, the 1st Int'l Workshop on IPTV Technologies and Multidisciplinary Applications, will take place in conjunction with ConTEL 2009. The purpose of the workshop, tentatively scheduled for 8 June 2009, is to address various aspects of Internet Protocol TV in multimedia broadcasting. These aspects include architectural standardization, content protection, quality of service, quality of experience, and middleware.
