The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference Call for Papers

=========================================================
MMSys'18
Science Park Congress Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
June 12-15, 2018

=========================================================

The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys) and associated workshops
(MMVE2018, NetGames2018, NOSDAV2018,PV2018) provide 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, real-time
system, database, mobile computing, distributed systems, 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 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 more than one component, 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

Relevant and interesting themes:
Adaptive streaming, games, virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed
reality, 3D video, Ultra-HD, HDR, immersive systems, plenoptics, 360
video, multimedia IoT, multi- and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile multimedia
and 5G, wearable multimedia, P2P, cloud-based multimedia,
cyber-physical systems, multi-sensory experiences, smart cities, QoE
