CALL FOR PAPER
The 17th International Workshop on Network and Operating
Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video (NOSSDAV 2007)
Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA
June 4-5, 2007
Sponsored by ACM SIGMM
Paper Submission Deadline: February 5, 2007
For seventeen years, NOSSDAV has fostered cutting-edge, state-of-the-art
research in multimedia and newly emerging areas such as networked games and
peer-to-peer streaming. The workshop environment encourages lively
discussion among participants and invites strong feedback for work in
progress. In 2007, NOSSDAV will be held at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA.
NOSSDAV invites submissions on all areas of multimedia computing and
networking and strongly encourages work in progress in emerging areas.
Papers grounded in high quality experimental research based on prototype
and real systems are highly valued. NOSSDAV will give extra consideration
to papers that aim to comprehensively validate previous work in some topic
within multimedia, propose new directions for research or call into
question existing conventional wisdom. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to:
- Peer-to-peer streaming
- Networked games
- Sensor networks and architectures
- In-network stream processing
- Wireless and mobile multimedia systems
- 3D multimedia and tele-immersion
- Streaming 3D graphics and virtual worlds
- Application-level multicast
- Multimedia security
- Digital rights management
- Real-time operating system support for multimedia
- Multimedia middleware and frameworks
- Multimedia grids
- Programmable and GPU/SPU-enabled multimedia
A broad view will be taken in deciding what topics are within scope.
Please feel free to contact the workshop co-chairs if you are unsure and
wish to check if a particular paper or topic is within the workshop scope.
As always, student participation is strongly encouraged. To encourage a good
mix of seasoned researchers as well as students, we will be offering
discounted registration for non-student co-authors of a paper or other
non-student participants associated with the author of a paper (participants
from the same institution).
Submissions (as well as the camera ready final versions of accepted
papers) should be no longer than 6 pages. We expect these submissions to be
the kernel of what will eventually lead to full-length papers at
high-quality conferences or journals.
This year, a few of accepted NOSSDAV papers with highest quality are
selected and their authors are invited to submit an extended version of
their papers to a special issue of ACM/Springer Multimedia Systems Journal
(MMSJ). MMSJ is a well-known International journal, published by the
Springer Verlag, and sponsored by the ACM SIGMM organization. This journal
publishes new research results in the areas of multimedia systems,
multimedia networking, multimedia applications, multimedia security,
multimedia education, multimedia coding, and multimedia retrieval systems.
