*Important Message to Authors and Attendees*


As the MMSys’21 organizing committee, we are working toward organizing a
wonderful face-to-face event in Istanbul and making up for the
opportunities missed in 2020. We hope with all the vaccination programs
around the world, at least some of us will be able to travel again and
attend MMSys in person later in the year. Thus, we decided to move MMSys'21
and the co-located events to late September.

MMSys’21 will take place between **September 28th and October 1st** in

Due to the date change, we adjusted the important dates
<https://2021.acmmmsys.org/index.php#call-to-action> for the authors, and
added a **second submission deadline** for the Research Track.

We are dedicated to accommodate any specific need authors or attendees
might have, including remote presentation/participation. As always, email
us (or find us on Slack) if you have any questions.

*ACM MMSys 2021 Research Track - Call for Papers*


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
