Abstract

The VICOM (Virtual Immersive COMmunications) project is a three-year project funded by the Italian Ministry of Instruction University and Research aiming at investigating innovative communication paradigms. The project represents a wide coordinated effort focused on integration of immersive and wireless technologies in view of the fourth generation of mobile communications. The main goal of the project consists of the design of a wideband system architecture for immersive services and of its validation through two distributed large test-beds. Starting from VICOM ongoing experiences some future challenges and objectives for the future situated and autonomic communications technologies are envisaged in the paper.
