MMSys 2016 - Preliminary Call for Papers

ACM Multimedia Systems 2016 (MMSys'16) [PDF]
co-located with NOSSDAV, MoVid, and MMVE

May 10-13, 2016
Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, Austria

The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys) provides a forum for researchers to present and share their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia systems are regularly published in the various proceedings and transactions of the networking, operating system, real-time system, and database communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the context of multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to view the intersections and the inter-play of the various approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data types. MMSys is a venue for researchers who explore:
  • Complete multimedia systems that provide a new kind of multimedia experience or systems whose overall performance improves the state-of-the-art through new research results in one of more components, or
  • Enhancements to one or more system components that provide a documented improvement over the state-of-the-art for handling continuous media or time-dependent services.
Such individual system components include:
  • Operating systems
  • Distributed architectures and protocol enhancements
  • Domain languages, development tools and abstraction layers
  • Using new architectures or computing resources for multimedia
  • New or improved I/O architectures or I/O devices, innovative uses and algorithms for their operation
  • Representation of continuous or time-dependent media
  • Metrics, measures and measurement tools to assess performance and quality of service/experience
This touches aspects of many hot topics: adaptive streaming, games, virtual environments, augmented reality, 3D video, immersive systems, telepresence, multi- and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile streaming, P2P, Clouds, cyber-physical systems. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the technical program committee. Full papers will be evaluated for their scientific quality. Accepted papers must reach a high scientific standard and document unpublished research.
