At the 105th meeting, MPEG produced documents of Requirements (N13881) and Use Cases (N13880) on MPEG User Description (MPEG-UD). As a result, MPEG intends to start the standardization on MPEG-UD that complies with the requirements defined in the requirements document.
As a first stage of this standardization, MPEG issues this Call for Proposals on User Description, Service Description, Context Description, and Recommendation Description. Proposals shall fulfill the requirements given in N13881. Also, the proponents to this call are advised to refer to the finalized documents (final versions of requirements and use cases available after the 105th meeting) for a complete understanding of MPEG-UD.
This document is a call for proposals and provides the target use cases for evaluations of the submitted technologies. This includes some criteria for evaluations. In this call, we ask for a data representation (e.g., XML schema, RDF schema or Ontologies to be used in combination) for each of the following entities: User Description, Context Description, Service Description and Recommendation Description as defined in Section 3 of N13881 and fulfilling the requirements in Section 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, and 4.5 of N13881.
All parties that believe they have relevant technologies, satisfying one or more of the requirements mentioned in the requirements document, are invited to submit proposals for consideration by MPEG. These parties do not necessarily have to be MPEG members. The review of the submissions is planned in the context of the 106th MPEG meeting in Geneva, Switzerland. Please contact Joern Ostermann (email@example.com) for details on attending this meeting if you are not an MPEG delegate.
