A major factor in the success of the convergence of future networks to 4G, All-IP technology is the efficient support of content-rich multimedia applications and services in mobile networks. There are many applications that will be enabled by new standards for mobile networking, such as triple services for mobile networks, digital television in a converged environment, video streaming, interactive gaming, navigation services, context aware services, emergency and healthcare applications, and immersive communications in virtual environments.
The focus of this workshop is to present and discuss recent advances in the technologies needed for Context-aware Multimedia Content Delivery. Specifically, the workshop intends to address the following research areas:
* Development of new techniques for delivering rich video experience to users over existing wireless technologies;
* Definition of methods to utilize the situation and environment of a user (context) to initiate multimedia-rich content delivery;
* Deployment of broadcast/multicast adaptive content delivery technologies to mobile users with diverse QoS requirements.

Within this scope, the CAMCD workshop aims to provide a unique international forum and foster interaction among researchers by bringing together members of the video and networking communities. The workshop will provide an interesting venue for academic and industrial participants to discuss in terms of how next generation mobile video content should delivered to end-users.
