=============================================================================================== **** MMSys 2010 **** Call For Papers ACM Multimedia Systems 2010 February 22-23, 2010 Scottsdale, Arizona www.mmsys.org Important Dates: * September 25, 2009 - Full Paper Submission Deadline Submit papers via EDAS here: http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=8151 * November 1, 2009 - Notification of Acceptance * December 1, 2009 - Final Paper Due * February 22, 2010 - Conference Over the years, ACM SIG Multimedia has received numerous requests to create a multimedia systems conference, targeted at the systems aspects of handling audio, image, video, and graphics data. We are pleased to announce the First Annual ACM Multimedia Systems (MMSys) Conference to be held February 22-23, 2010 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The ACM Multimedia Systems conference provides a forum for researchers, engineers, and scientist to present and share their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia systems is regularly published in the various proceedings and transactions of the networking, operating system, real-time 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 interplay of the various approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data types. Furthermore, MMSys provides an avenue for communicating research that addresses multimedia systems holistically. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Multimedia Systems * Multimedia Networking * Multimedia Operating Systems * Multimedia Databases * Large-Scale and Remote Display Architectures * Real-Time Support For Multimedia * Networked Games * Virtual and Augmented Worlds * Cyber-Physical Systems * Peer-to-Peer Architectures for Streaming and Multicast * Modeling of Multimedia Systems * Multimedia Interfaces * Multimedia Middleware and Toolkits * Multimedia Programming Languages * Cloud-based Multimedia Processing * Multi-core Support for Multimedia * Mobile Multimedia Systems * 3D and Multiview Streaming Original papers on emerging and traditional areas of multimedia systems are sought. All submissions should not currently be under review in another venue and should be prepared using the standard double-column ACM proceedings style format. Papers should be a maximum of 12 pages in length. Short papers (3-6 pages) are also encouraged and will be evaluated for inclusion in a short-paper track. Papers should be clearly motivated by themes and issues raised primarily in the context of multimedia applications and data types such as: * Continuity of media over time * Scalability of systems to support multimedia data * Adaptation of media to support real-time requirements In addition to the refereed paper publication, there will be two unique aspects of the Multimedia Systems Conference: * Multimedia Systems will have an archival site for all its conferences. Each paper will have a blog area that will allow people with questions and comments (moderated) about a paper to be consolidated over time. We hope this will provide a service to the entire community to allow people to come up to speed more quickly about papers that have appeared at Multimedia Systems. * To help facilitate the sharing and common use of data and software, we will be having a software / data archive track that, as part of the publication process, will result in a copy of the software or data archive in the Multimedia Systems web site. This will allow researchers to more quickly converge on common data sets for comparisons.
