**** CALL FOR PAPERS **** NOSSDAV 2010 Amsterdam, The Netherlands. June 2-4, 2010 http://nsl.cs.sfu.ca/nossdav10/ NOSSDAV 2010 is the 20th anniversary of SIGMM's leading workshop on network and operating systems support for digital audio and video. The workshop, hosted by the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), will continue to focus on emerging research topics, controversial ideas, and future research directions in the area of multimedia systems research. As in previous years, we will maintain the focused single-track format a setting that stimulates lively discussions among the senior and junior participants. NOSSDAV encourages experimental research based on real systems and real data sets. Public availability of the source code and data sets discussed in papers presented at NOSSDAV is highly encouraged. For NOSSDAV 2010, we will accept papers on a broad ranges of topics related to the transmission and presentation of digital audio/video objects. We are particularly interested in soliciting articles that discuss systems- level support for distributed social networking, as well as papers that focus on local dispatching and performance aspects of multi-core processors. Other topics of interest include (but are not restricted to): * OS, middleware and network support * Overlay networks * Media streaming, distribution and storage support * Web 2.0 systems and social networks * Media sensor and ad hoc networks / Embedded systems * Multicore architecture support * Wireless and mobile multimedia systems / Network processor support * Networked GPU's, graphics and virtual environments * Networked games / Real-time immersive systems * Multimedia communications and system security Please contact the workshop general and program chairs to check if your topic is within the scope of NOSSDAV. In all cases, the quality of presentation (writing style, clarity for persons outside the direct field) will play a role in submission evaluation. This year's review process will contain a number of experimental components. One of these is ability for authors and reviewers to participate in a double-open review procedure. In this voluntary trial, the names of the submitting authors AND the names of the participating reviewers will be made available during the process. (We hope that 25% of the submissions will participate in this experiment.) Submissions should be at most SIX pages, using standard ACM proceedings style. Each submission should contain a one-page extended abstract that explains the core contributions of the work to a wide NOSSDAV audience. Authors of papers selected by the program committee (and one wild-card paper selected by NOSSDAV participants) will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to a special issue of ACM/Springer Multimedia Systems Journal.
