                         Call for Participation
                   International Workshop on P2P-TV
                 (organised by the NAPA-WINE Project)

                  Torino, Italy, January 20-21, 2011

TV services over the Internet can be provided either exploiting IP multicast
functionalities or relying on a pure end-to-end (P2P) approach. The P2P approach
has been successfully exploited to overcome limitations of IP-based solutions
(like reliance on the network infrastructure controlled by a single broadband
operator) and can potentially offer a scalable planetary infrastructure.
Recently, several P2P-TV systems started to show up, with the last generation
offering High Quality TV (P2P-HQTV) systems, providing a ubiquitous access to
the service. These same potentialities of P2P-TV systems constitute a worry for
network carriers since the traffic they generate may potentially grow without
control, causing a degradation of quality of service perceived by Internet users
or even the network collapse (and the consequent failure of the P2P-HQTV service
