  • Content & Service Delivery (Multicast, Voice, Video, "telepresence", Gaming) and Cloud Computing


Draft slides for both tutorials and conference sessions MUST be provided with CfP submissions otherwise the Programme Committee will be unable to review the submission. For avoidance of doubt this means that submissions which do not include slides will be rejected immediately. For work in progress, the most current information available at time of submission is acceptable.

All draft and complete slides must be submitted in PDF format only.

Final slides are to be provided by the specified deadline for publication on the APRICOT website.

Prospective presenters should note that the majority of speaking slots will be filled well before the final submission deadline. The PC may, at their discretion, retain a limited number of slots up to the final submission deadline for presentations that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical operational importance. Every year we turn away submissions, due to filling up all available programme slots before the deadline. Presenters should endeavour to get material into the PC sooner rather than later.

Any questions or concerns should be addressed to the Programme Committee by e-mail at:

We look forward to receiving your presentation proposals.
