Abstract: peer-to-peer (P2P) is a promising technology for video streaming, and offers advantages in terms of robustness, reconfigurability and scalability. From the point of view of the broadcaster, the P2P approach permits to serve a larger audience without the need of proportionally increased resources. From the users’ point of view, the P2P should allow to experience high quality video in a cost effective fashion. Moreover, users themselves can act as prosumers by distributing their own contents within social networks enabling heterogeneous users to real time, TV-quality video streaming on P2P overlays. The workshop is about algorithms, issues and experiences related to P2P video streaming and social networks taking into account recent advances on multimedia coding such as scalability, resilience, cross layer optimization, network coding as well as its distribution and interaction. The best paper award (€300) is sponsored by RADVISION
