-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In recent years, we have witnessed phenomenal growth in live video 
traffic over the Internet, accelerated by the rise of novel video 
streaming technologies, advancements in networking paradigms, and our 
ability to generate, process, and display videos on heterogeneous 
devices. Regarding the existing constraints and limitations in different 
components on the video delivery path from the origin server to clients, 
the network plays an essential role in boosting the perceived Quality of 
Experience (QoE) by clients. The ViSNext workshop aims to bring together 
researchers and developers working on all aspects of video streaming, in 
particular network-assisted concepts backed up by experimental evidence. 
We warmly invite submission of original, previously unpublished papers 
addressing key issues in this area, but not limited to:

  * Design, analysis, and evaluation of network-assisted multimedia
    system architectures
  * Optimization of edge, fog, and mobile edge computing for video
    streaming applications
  * Optimization of caching policies/systems for video streaming
    applications
  * Network-assisted resource allocation for video streaming
  * Experience and lessons learned by deploying large-scale
    network-assisted video streaming
  * Internet measurement and modeling for enhancing QoE in video
    streaming applications
  * Design, analysis, and evaluation of network-assisted Adaptive
    Bitrate (ABR) streaming
  * Network aspects in video streaming: cloud computing, virtualization
    techniques, network control, and management, including SDN, NFV, and
    network programmability
  * Routing and traffic engineering in end-to-end video streaming
  * Topics at the intersection of energy-efficient computing and
    networking for video streaming
  * Network-assisted techniques for low-latency video streaming
  * Machine learning for improving QoE in video streaming applications
  * Machine learning for traffic engineering and congestion control for
    video streaming
  * Solutions for improving streaming QoE for high-speed user mobility
  * Analysis, modeling, and experimentation of DASH
  * Big data analytics at the network edge to assess viewer experience
    of adaptive video
  * Reproducible research in adaptive video streaming: datasets,
    evaluation methods, benchmarking, standardization efforts,
    open-source tools
  * Novel use cases and applications in the area of adaptive video streaming
  * Advanced network-based techniques for point clouds, light field, and
    immersive video
  * Low delay and multipath video communication

*Submission Instruction*

  * Solicited submissions include both full technical workshop papers
    and white paper position papers. The maximum length of such
    submissions is up to 6 pages (excluding references) in 2-column 10pt
    ACM format <https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template>.
  * Papers must include author names and affiliations for single-blind
    peer reviewing by the program committee. Authors of accepted
    submissions are expected to present and discuss their work at the
    workshop. Register and submit your paper here
