The goal of the PROMS series of conferences and workshops is to contribute to scientific, strategic, and practical cooperation between research institutes and industrial companies in the area of multimedia protocols. This is also the goal of PROMS 2001. The basic theme of this conference continues to be multimedia protocols, both at the network and application level, although the increasing interest in wireless, mobility, and quality-of-service as interrelated topics with relevance to multimedia are reflected in the current program. The papers are grouped as follows in sessions for the single track technical program: (1) QoS in the Internet, (2) Multimedia streaming, (3) Multimedia multicast, (4) Wireless networks and host mobility, (5) TCP/IP optimization, and (6) Service development and deployment. The technical program is complemented with two invited presentations: "From Mars to Your TV at Home - Selected Internet Developments" by Erik Huizer and "Which Way to the Wireless Internet?" by Andrew Campbell.
