Call for Submissions
The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys) provides a forum for 
researchers to present and share their latest research findings in 
multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia 
systems are regularly published in the various proceedings and 
transactions of the networking, operating systems, real-time systems, 
databases, mobile computing, distributed systems, computer vision, and 
middleware communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the 
context of multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to 
investigate the intersections and the interplay of the various 
approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with 
multimedia data types.

MMSys is a venue for researchers who explore:
— Complete multimedia systems that provide a new kind of multimedia 
experience or system whose overall performance improves the 
state-of-the-art through new research results in more than one component, 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 protocols
— 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 and measurement tools to assess performance

This touches aspects of many hot topics including but not limited to: 
content preparation and delivery systems, HDR, games, 
virtual/augmented/mixed reality, 3D video, immersive systems, 
plenoptics, 360° video, volumetric video delivery, multimedia IoT, multi 
and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile multimedia and 5G, wearable multimedia, 
P2P, cloud-based multimedia, cyber-physical systems, multi-sensory 
experiences, smart cities, QoE.

Special Sessions
— Machine learning and statistical modeling for video streaming
— Real-time video at the edge
— Advanced transport protocols for video
— Volumetric media: from capture to consumption
Refer to the Web site for more info. Submission, notification and 
camera-ready dates will be the same as for the research track.

Submission Information
Papers should be between 6-12 pages long (in PDF format) prepared in the 
ACM style and written in English. MMSys papers enable authors to present 
entire multimedia systems or research work that builds on considerable 
amounts of earlier work in a self-contained manner. MMSys papers are 
published in the ACM Digital Library. The papers are double-blind reviewed.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three TPC members. All 
papers will be evaluated for their scientific quality. Authors will have 
a chance to submit their rebuttals before online discussions among the 
TPC members.

ACM SIGMM has a tradition of publishing open datasets (MMSys) and open 
source projects (ACM Multimedia). MMSys 2019 will continue to support 
scientific reproducibility, by implementing the ACM reproducibility 
badge system. All accepted papers will be contacted by the 
Reproducibility Chair, inviting the authors to make their dataset and 
code available, and thus, obtaining an ACM badge (visible at the ACM 
DL). The additional material will be published as Appendixes, with no 
effect on the final page count for papers.
