NOSSDAV 2010: Call for Papers
**** CALL FOR PAPERS ****
Amsterdam, The Netherlands. June 2-4, 2010
NOSSDAV 2010 is the 20th anniversary of SIGMM's leading workshop on network and
operating systems support for digital audio and video. The workshop, hosted by
the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
(VU), will continue to focus on emerging research topics, controversial ideas,
and future research directions in the area of multimedia systems research.
As in previous years, we will maintain the focused single-track format a
setting that stimulates lively discussions among the senior and junior
NOSSDAV encourages experimental research based on real systems and real data
sets. Public availability of the source code and data sets discussed in papers
presented at NOSSDAV is highly encouraged.
For NOSSDAV 2010, we will accept papers on a broad ranges of topics related to
the transmission and presentation of digital audio/video objects. We are
particularly interested in soliciting articles that discuss systems-level
support for distributed social networking, as well as papers that focus on
local dispatching and performance aspects of multi-core processors. Other
topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):
* OS, middleware and network support
* Overlay networks
* Media streaming, distribution and storage support
* Web 2.0 systems and social networks
* Media sensor and ad hoc networks / Embedded systems
* Multicore architecture support
* Wireless and mobile multimedia systems / Network processor support
* Networked GPU's, graphics and virtual environments
* Networked games / Real-time immersive systems
* Multimedia communications and system security
Please contact the workshop general and program chairs to check if your topic
is within the scope of NOSSDAV. In all cases, the quality of presentation
(writing style, clarity for persons outside the direct field) will play a role
in submission evaluation.
This year's review process will contain a number of experimental components.
One of these is ability for authors and reviewers to participate in a
double-open review procedure. In this voluntary trial, the names of the
submitting authors AND the names of the participating reviewers will be made
available during the process. (We hope that 25% of the submissions will
participate in this experiment.)
Submissions should be at most SIX pages, using standard ACM proceedings style.
Each submission should contain a one-page extended abstract that explains the
core contributions of the work to a wide NOSSDAV audience.
Authors of papers selected by the program committee (and one wild-card paper
selected by NOSSDAV participants) will be invited to submit an extended version
of their papers to a special issue of ACM/Springer Multimedia Systems Journal.
(Firm) Paper Deadline: 17 February 2010
Decision Notification: 25 March 2010
Camera Ready Due: 9 April 2010
