ACM MMSys 2020 Research Track - Call for Papers

“Bridging Deep Media and Communications”

June 8-11, 2020, Istanbul, Turkey

Scope and Topics of Interest



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:

Such individual system components include:

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

We especially encourage submissions in the following Focus Areas:

Submission Instructions


Online submission:

Papers must be up to 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.

MMSys 2020 will continue to support scientific reproducibility, by implementing the ACM reproducibility badge system. Refer to the website for more details on the review process and the reproducibility badge system.
