Call for Submissions:
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 systems, real-time
systems, databases, mobile computing, distributed systems, computer
vision, 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 interplay
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

This touches aspects of many hot topics including but not limited to:
content preparation and delivery systems, HDR, games,
virtual/augmented/mixed reality, 3D video, immersive systems,
plenoptics, 360° video, volumetric video delivery, 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.

Papers should be between 6-12 pages long (in PDF format) prepared in
the ACM style and written in English. MMSys papers enable authors to
present entire multimedia systems or research work that builds on
considerable amounts of earlier work in a self-contained manner. MMSys
papers are published in the ACM Digital Library. The papers are
double-blind reviewed.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three TPC
members. All papers will be evaluated for their scientific
quality. Authors will have a chance to submit their rebuttals before
online discussions among the TPC members.

ACM SIGMM has a tradition of publishing open datasets (MMSys) and open
source projects (ACM Multimedia). MMSys 2019 will continue to support
scientific reproducibility, by implementing the ACM reproducibility
badge system
( All
accepted papers will be contacted by the Reproducibility Chair,
inviting the authors to make their dataset and code available, and
thus, obtaining an ACM badge (visible at the ACM DL). The additional
material will be published as Appendixes, with no effect on the final
page count for papers.
