ACM Multimedia Systems 2017: Call for Participation
June 20-23, 2017 at Taipei, Taiwan

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the ACM Multimedia Systems 
Conference (MMSys 2017), held from June 20-23, 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan.

We are happy to announce that this year, four renowned workshops will be 
co-located with ACM Multimedia Systems 2017 (MMSys’17): NOSSDAV, MoVid, 
MMVE, and NetGames.  This is the first in MMSys history to have FOUR 
co-located workshops.  We believe this arrangement will certainly make 
the general multimedia systems community more tightly coupled and also 
ease the travel overhead of its members.

We believe that MMSys and its co-located workshops will stimulate 
fruitful scientific discussions and, together with social activities 
around Taipei city and other cities in Taiwan. Taiwan is well known for 
the overwhelming friendliness of its people and the diversity in its 
food °V We hope this will provide everyone a unique experience to 
Southeast Asia and great memories.

We hope to see you at Taipei in June, 2017!  More information below.
