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. For MMSys 2011, a Special Session on Modern Media Transport: DASH was organized. It was very successful in terms of attendance, presentations and discussions. The match of interests between special session and main conference was very satisfying, and MMT DASH has been fully integrated into the main MMSys conference from 2012. Highly appreciated program points such as the data set track of MMSys 2011 return for MMSys 2012. Industrial participants are highly encouraged to attend.
