On behalf of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, we welcome you to the 2010 IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting (Broadband Multimedia 2010).
During recent years, the broadcast industry has witnessed an accelerated rate of technical innovation and rapid convergence of multimedia broadcasting, telecommunications, consumer electronics, and networking technologies. These rapid advancements have resulted in the emergence of new technologies and services, such as IPTV, mobile TV, and 3D-TV. This symposium serves as an industry-oriented forum for the presentation and exchange of technical advances in the rapidly converging areas.
This year, we received 163 submissions from 22 countries and regions all over the globe. Each submission was carefully reviewed and evaluated by at least three experts. Based on the results of the reviews, 68 submissions were accepted as oral presentations and 32 as poster presentations. The acceptance rate was 61%. The accepted papers were organized into three parallel tracks consisting of 17 oral sessions and 5 poster sessions. In addition. there are six highly respected keynote speakers from leading research institutions and standard bodies will give presentations in this year's symposium. There will also be a panel discussion session Friday afternoon, where world-class experts will present their vision of the “Technology Trend and Future of Broadband Multimedia”, Don't miss the chance to ask questions.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have made this symposium possible. We extend our thanks to members of the International Steering Committee members of the Technical Committee. and the expert reviewers for promoting the symposium and evaluating submissions. We are especially grateful to Ms. Kathy Colabaugh, Administrator of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society. She devoted countless hours of support Ly efficiently accomplishing multiple and coordinating and planning symposium activities. We also extend our thanks to all authors for their submissions and to all participants and session chairs for their contributions support and interest in the symposium.
We would also like to invite all the attendees to know our city Shanghai. About 5 miles away from this hall lies the site of Expo 2010 on both side of the Huangpu river, where more than 40 pavilions will exhibit the concept of “Better City and Better Life” to the world in May this year. Not far from here is the Chenghuang (City-god) Temple where you can appreciate the Yuyuan Garden while enjoying the local cuisines. If you are a vegetarian the Jade Buddha Temple might be a good choice. Well, we can not show all our city at once, why not explore and experience the city yourself? Finally, we would like to remind you that the 2011 Symposium will be held on June 8–10, 2011 near Nümberg Germany. We hope to see you there next year!
Wenjun Zhang, Pablo Angueira, Ulrich Reimers, and Yiyan Wu
