Challenges for new multimedia and networked applications

In order to get software performance and scalability, algorithms and application characteristics as well as the hardware and interconnect architectures must be designed and applied in harmony. Today, existing solutions and technologies, such as multimedia and visualization platforms, many-core systems, virtualization or power management systems, enable users to create various new user interfaces and applications with highly demanding both networking and hardware requirements. The aim of this presentation will be to share example use cases and application scenarios together with various challenges identified for future computing and networking.
