Bridging Deep Media and Communications

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.

Such individual system components include

Operating systems

Distributed architectures and protocols

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 and measurement tools to assess performance

This touches aspects of many hot topics including but not limited to

Content preparation and (adaptive) delivery systems

High dynamic range (HDR), games, virtual/augmented/mixed reality, 3D video

Immersive systems, plenoptics, 360-degree video, volumetric video delivery

Multimedia Internet of Things (IoT)

Multi and many-core, GPGPUs

Mobile multimedia and 5G, wearable multimedia

Peer-to-peer (P2P), cloud-based multimedia

Cyber-physical systems

Multi-sensory experiences, smart cities, quality of experience (QoE)

We encourage submissions in focus areas of

Machine learning and statistical modeling for video streaming

Volumetric media: from capture to consumption

Fake media and tools for preventing illegal broadcasts
