*1st Call for Papers
EuroITV is the leading international conference for media and 
interaction related to video and television. Researchers and 
practitioners from all over the world meet to discuss latest advances on 
media technology, HCI, media studies, and the content creation 
community. The organizing committee invites you to submit original, high 
quality papers addressing the special theme and topics, for presentation 
at the conference and inclusion in the proceedings. The main conference 
proceedings will be published by ACM. Selected papers will be 
short-listed for submission to special edition journals.

Digital technologies have opened up new ways to consume and interact 
with rich-media content. The special theme of "*Bridging People, Places 
and Platforms*" focuses on synergies to support current practice and to 
explore new perspectives by empowering users to interact with content 
and each across localities and across various delivery platforms and media.

The concept of TV as a device, an activity, a type of content and a 
medium has been undergoing large changes in this evolving technological 
environment.Once dumb screens Home entertainment systems are now 
increasingly providing interactive and communication services from 
different sources. The constraints of space and time that used to define 
watching audio-visual, broadcast content are long gone. The way people 
consume and interact with content is becoming enmeshed with social and 
other communication and information needs.

Key areas considered are mobility, interactivity, personalization, 
empowerment (control, accessibility, participation and UGC), and the 
social network mediation of communication practices.
