The third COST 237 workshop on "Multimedia telecommunications and applications" will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from 25 to 27 November 1996. It is organized by the CEC COST 237 Action on Multimedia Telecommunications Services and hosted by Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya.

Protocols and mechanisms for cooperative multimedia applications are currently a prime focus for many standardization and institutional bodies. Among these are the ATM Forum, the IETF, DAVIC, TINA, ITU and ISO. A major goal of this third workshop is to present the latest research developments that may be of interest to these various bodies and to encourage an exchange of experiences.

The workshop will focus on teleservices and communications support for distributed multimedia applications. Particular emphasis will be placed on architectural and implementation aspects of these key services and support areas.

Important topics for the workshop include:

- Teleservices architecture;
- From teleservices to specific applications;
- Wide-area multimedia collaboration tools and services;
- Multimedia in distributed systems platforms;
- Security for multimedia teleservices;
- End-system support for multimedia;
- Media synchronization services;
- End-to-end quality of service (QoS) support;
- Multipeer transport services;
- Protocols for multicasting;
- Mechanisms to support media-scaling;
- Distributed control in heterogeneous multimedia networks;
- Application-oriented design;
- QoS semantics for the service providers;
- QoS pricing;
