              **** MMSys 2010 ****

                   Call For Papers
       ACM Multimedia Systems 2010
              February 22-23, 2010
                Scottsdale, Arizona

Important Dates:
     * September 15, 2009 - Full Paper Submission Deadline
       Submit papers via EDAS here:
     * November 1, 2009 - Notification of Acceptance
     * December 1, 2009 - Final Paper Due
     * February 22, 2010 - Conference

Over the years, ACM SIG Multimedia has received numerous requests to  
create a multimedia systems conference, targeted at the systems  
aspects of handling audio, image, video, and graphics data. We are  
pleased to announce the First Annual ACM Multimedia Systems (MMSys)  
Conference to be held February 22-23, 2010 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

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  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     * Multimedia Systems
     * Multimedia Networking
     * Multimedia Operating Systems
     * Multimedia Databases
     * Large-Scale and Remote Display Architectures
     * Real-Time Support For Multimedia
     * Networked Games
     * Virtual and Augmented Worlds
     * Cyber-Physical Systems
     * Peer-to-Peer Architectures for Streaming and Multicast
     * Modeling of Multimedia Systems
     * Multimedia Interfaces
     * Multimedia Middleware and Toolkits
     * Multimedia Programming Languages
     * Cloud-based Multimedia Processing
     * Multi-core Support for Multimedia
     * Mobile Multimedia Systems
     * 3D and Multiview Streaming

Original papers on emerging and traditional areas of multimedia  
systems are sought. All submissions should not currently be under  
review in another venue and should be prepared using the standard  
double-column ACM proceedings style format. Papers should be a maximum  
of 12 pages in length. Short papers (3-6 pages) are also encouraged  
and will be evaluated for inclusion in a short-paper track.

Papers should be clearly motivated by themes and issues raised  
primarily in the context of multimedia applications and data types  
such as:

     * Continuity of media over time
     * Scalability of systems to support multimedia data
     * Adaptation of media to support real-time requirements

In addition to the refereed paper publication, there will be two  
unique aspects of the Multimedia Systems Conference:

     * Multimedia Systems will have an archival site for all its  
conferences. Each paper will have a blog area that will allow people  
with questions and comments (moderated) about a paper to be  
consolidated over time. We hope this will provide a service to the  
entire community to allow people to come up to speed more quickly  
about papers that have appeared at Multimedia Systems.
     * To help facilitate the sharing and common use of data and  
software, we will be having a software / data archive track that, as  
part of the publication process, will result in a copy of the software  
or data archive in the Multimedia Systems web site. This will allow  
researchers to more quickly converge on common data sets for
