This year’s CCNC was held in the iconic Flamigo. Thanks to the size of the venue, I was able to achieve 10,000 steps fitness goal everyday during the conference by walking between sessions at different part of the building. For my talk, I started by sharing the aims of our project and the challenges we face in the field of distributed multimedia and networking. I emphasised on the human factors in delivering online media and our approaches to equip communication networks with the awareness of viewers’ experience at the end of the cable.
The main contribution of our work is the “sliding perception window”, a concept that is built on top of the moving average-based prediction. The next steps are to conduct further user experiments to model psychlogical impacts and to experiment with different options of implementation using SDN.
