The ACM Multimedia Systems conference provides a forum for researchers, engineers, and scientist to present and share their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia systems is 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 interplay of the various approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data types. Furthermore, MMSys provides an avenue for communicating research that addresses multimedia systems holistically.

In 2013, MMSys is joined by two workshops:

NOSSDAV & MoVid.

 

We recommend to the multimedia systems community also the JSAC special issue "Adaptive Media Streaming" with deadline April 15, 2013. Look here for the call text.

 

Full MMSys paper

Multimedia systems permeate many aspects of our daily life, and are steadily developed further. 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

This touches aspects of many hot topics: DASH, games, virtual environments, augmented reality, 3D video, immersive systems, telepresence, multi- and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile streaming, P2P, Clouds, cyber-physical systems – observe this space as we make more information about the connections available as we developed the web pages for 2013.

MMSys accepts full papers with 6 to 12 pages. (Note)
The deadline for submissions was September 28, 2012.

Best papers' authors will be invited to submit a modified version of their contribution to the ACM TOMCCAP (Transaction on Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications) journal.

Special Session: 3D Technology in Multimedia

As MMSys provides a unique opportunity to highlight complete systems dealing with multimedia datatypes, the special session on 3D Technology in Multimedia targets tools and applications dedicated to 3D data. 3D data is increasingly investigated by multimedia systems researchers, while researchers in 3D technology put it in a context of larger systems.

This special session aims at giving the opportunity for communicating new developments and systems built for 3D in multimedia. Brave news ideas, ambitious and pioneering work are particularly welcome. Researchers, engineers from different background like signal processing, 3D modeling, visual systems, or communication and systems developing interested in sharing work on 3D in multimedia will have the opportunity to get together and learn from each other.

The papers for this special sessions will be reviewed by a TPC of experts who specialize in research that combines the two fields. Submissions could be between 6 and 12 pages long and were due on November 15, 2012 November 22, 2012.

Best papers' authors will be encouraged to submit an extended version of their contribution to the IEEE TMM (Transaction in Multimedia) journal.

Exhibits Sessions

The Exhibit tracks of MMSys call for dataset papers and for demonstrations. These will be accompanied by papers of up to 6 pages. The deadline for submissions was November 15, 2012 November 19, 2012.

Dataset publications give researchers from academia and industry that have made a dataset available to the community the opportunity to present the dataset itself and other researchers to give credit and recognition that the effort of this contribution deserves. Papers must report basic properties of the dataset and may outline ways in which the dataset could be used for research.

Demos are the pinnacle of projects in practical computer science. Demonstrate at MMSys that you have implemented your ideas and that they work. MMSys demos are your research prototypes, not industrial exhibits, and documented in papers.

NOSSDAV 2013

NOSSDAV is a workshop held for the 23rd time. It focuses on your hottest work in multimedia systems. NOSSDAV covers emerging research topics, high-risk high-return ideas and proposals, and future research directions in multimedia networking and systems. It encourages active participation and discussions among academic and industry researchers and practitioners. The workshop seeks research papers in all areas of multimedia networking and systems. NOSSDAV called for papers of up to 6 pages with a deadline on November 26, 2012.

MoVid 2013

The 5th Mobile Video Workshop provides the opportunity to present and discuss recent advances in the broad area of mobile video services. Its goal is to understand of the research and deployment challenges in building the Next Generation Mobile Video services. It addresses in particular novel mobile video applications and architectures, research challenges in developing new techniques for providing rich video experience on wireless mobile devices, new visions and concepts to support high quality video services on heterogeneous mobile devices and network conditions and deployment challenges of new and scalable mobile video services. MoVid called for papers of up to 6 pages with a deadline in November 12, 2012.

Open poster session

To ease discussions at the conference, all participants of the conference will also be given the opportunity to exhibit posters. These posters are for discussion only and not connected to a publication.
