ACM MMSys 2021 Research Track - Call for Papers

“Bridging Deep Media and Communications”

May 25-28, 2021, Istanbul, Turkey

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.

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 I/O architectures/devices, innovative uses and algorithms

   Representation of continuous or time-dependent media

   Metrics and measurement tools to assess performance

This touches aspects of many hot topics including content preparation and
(adaptive) delivery systems, HDR, games, virtual/augmented/mixed reality,
3D video, immersive systems, plenoptics, 360-degree/volumetric video
delivery, multimedia Internet of Things (IoT), multi and many-core, GPGPUs,
mobile multimedia and 5G, wearable multimedia, cloud-based multimedia, P2P,
cyber-physical systems, multi-sensory experiences, smart cities and QoE.

We encourage submissions in the following Focus Areas:


   Machine learning and statistical modeling for streaming

   Volumetric media and collaborative immersive environments

   Fake media and tools for preventing illegal broadcasts

NOSSDAV’21 - Call for Papers


As in previous years, NOSSDAV focuses on both established and emerging
research topics, high-risk high-return ideas and proposals, and future
research directions in multimedia systems. The single-track format
encourages academic and industry researchers and practitioners to engage in
fruitful and constructive discussions. Out-of-the-box ideas are
particularly welcome; NOSSDAV prefers exciting-even-if-incomplete papers
over complete-but-boring papers.

The workshop seeks papers in all areas of multimedia systems with an
emphasis on the systems aspects. Authors are especially encouraged to
submit papers with real-world experimental results and datasets. Topics of
interest include (but are not limited to):


   Virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and immersive systems

   Deep learning approaches to improve multimedia delivery and processing

   Cloud architectures for multimedia coding and processing

   Wireless, mobile, IoT and embedded systems for multimedia applications

   Medical, surveillance and autonomous driving multimedia systems

   Network-distributed media processing

   Networked GPUs/TPUs, graphics and virtual environments

   Security in multimedia systems
