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 system, realtime system, and database communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the context of multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to view the intersections and the inter-play 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 systems whose overall performance improves the state-of-the-art through new research results in one of more components, 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 protocol enhancements
- 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, measures and measurement tools to assess performance
This touches aspects of many hot topics including but not limited to: adaptive streaming, games, virtual environments, augmented reality, 3D video, Ultra-HD, HDR, immersive systems, plenoptics, 360° video, multimedia IoT, multi- and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile streaming, P2P, clouds, cyber-physical systems.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the technical program committee. All papers will be evaluated for their scientific quality.
Papers should be between 6 and 12 pages long (in PDF format) prepared in the ACM style and written in English. The unusual length of MMSys papers is meant to enable authors to present entire multimedia systems or present research work that builds on considerable amounts of earlier work in a self-contained manner. MMSys papers are published in the ACM Digital Library; they are available for just as long as journal papers and authors should not feel compelled by space limitations to publish extended works on top of an MMSys paper. Authors who submit very specific, detailed research work that does not require such brevity are encouraged to use less than 12 pages. The papers are double-blind reviewed.
