CALL FOR PAPERS - FutureTV-2011: Making Television Personal & Social

2nd International Workshop on the Future of Television

June 29, 2011 at EuroITV 2011, Lisbon, Portugal

The growing amount of data available on the social and semantic Webs, APIs
to access and manipulate that data, and trends towards common identifiers
and metadata schema allow future television new opportunities to link TV
viewing with both the viewer's personal Web profiles on social networks, and
with social activities across the Web also from friends and similar people.

The second edition of this workshop will build on research, services and
results from the NoTube project, bringing NoTube experts together with the
wider iTV research and enterprise community to explore the new possibilities
inherent in social Web, semantic Web, Linked Data and semantic TV to produce
future, new, innovative services and platforms for TV which is more personal
and more social. This goes beyond the existing state of the art social TV
through the introduction of open Web standards, semantic Web technology and
Linked Data content.

With this workshop we seek submissions related to addressing the gaps in the
state of the art for making social-semantic-Television a reality as well as
the consequenes on schemas, services, and standards:

*    Re-use of social Web data for TV program adaptation, recommendation,
selection or mash-ups
*    Re-use of semantic Web data for TV program adaptation, recommendation,
selection or mash-ups
*    Generation of social Web data from TV watching and interaction with the
TV program
*    Generation of semantic Web data from TV watching and interaction with
the TV program
*    User profiling with respect to interests, TV preferences, or current
*    Integrating existing broadcast TV infrastructure with the social and
semantic Web
*    Annotation of TV programming with social or semantic Web data schemas
*    Applying semantic and social Web applications on the television,
including development for the set top box, design of appropriate user
interfaces and exploration of user interaction patterns
*    Integration of semantic and social Web data in TV-based applications
