*About*
Going beyond todayís second screen and social TV experience, linkedTV is 
a vision of how TV and the Web will, in the future, become seamlessly 
interwoven, independent of the content or device. Rather than switch 
between ďTVĒ and the ďWebĒ they will co-exist, content on screen being 
intuitively mashed-up together, and interaction by the user shifting 
between content and data from the different sources effortlessly.

The 3rd Future Television workshop aims at exploring the research and 
development necessary for moving from todayís Web-TV platforms to 
tomorrows linkedTV platform, including:
  * how TV and Web content can be mashed up on a single screen;
  * how interaction with interwoven TV and Web content can help users 
shift effortlessly from one to the other;
  * what (non-linear) stories can be told in an interweaving of TV and 
Web content;
  * what new social benefits, application functionalities and business 
models such linkedTV can provide;
  * gaps in existing specifications and standards in the TV and Web 
world, requirements on new specifications and standards, how to bridge 
the TV and Web standards worlds;
  * application of existing or creation of new technological approaches 
to TV and Web to make linkedTV a reality (media fragments, annotations, 
semantics, multimedia scene descriptions, etc.).

*Submissions*
High quality submissions are solicited from all academic, scientific and 
industrial participants interested in the future vision of linkedTV and 
in discussing how it can be brought about on a research, development and 
commercialization level. We invite all contributions which address any 
of the below topics, or other topics considered as important by the 
authors to the goals of the workshop:
  * Annotation of Web and TV content for interweaving of both
  * Models for describing the interweaving of TV and Web content in a 
single experience
  * Adaptation of original TV or Web content for integrated presentation 
in end TV and mobile devices
  * User interfaces to browse interwoven TV and Web content
  * Storytelling techniques applied to LinkedTV
  * Scenarios for interweaving TV and Web content
  * Requirements for linkedTV, extensions to existing standards and 
recommendations, proposals for new models and specifications
  * Business models for linkedTV, studies in market acceptance of TV and 
Web interweaving

We encourage various types of submission:
  * full papers (max 12 pages) for mature work which has been subject to 
evaluation and whose results have been made public / commercialised, or
  * short papers (max 6 pages), for significant work in progress, late 
breaking results or ideas / challenges for the domain, as well as
  * demo submissions (max 2 pages describing the planned demo), for 
software and platforms which may be able to support a part of the 
imaginable linkedTV ecosystem.

Accepted full papers will be presented at length during the workshop, 
while accepted short papers will be allocated a shorter speaking slot 
and/or a place in a dedicated poster & demo session (depending on time 
available). Accepted demos will be included in the dedicated poster & 
demo session in the workshop.

Submissions must be in PDF and must be submitted using easychair. 
Submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications
