Support for Digital Audio and Video
23-25 June 1999
Hosted By:
AT&T Labs - Research
Networking and Distributed Systems Research Laboratory

The 9th International Workshop on Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video (NOSSDAV 99) is the international workshop concerned with state of the art technology in networking and operating system support for multimedia systems.  For eight years, NOSSDAV has proven to be an outstanding forum for researchers involved in building innovative multimedia systems, networks and applications in both industry and academia.

A key aspect of the workshop is that it provides extensive discussion periods during which attendees can informally discuss their current work and future research directions. Traditionally, NOSSDAV has emphasized high quality experimental research based on prototype or real systems.  NOSSDAV99 will continue this tradition.

Author Information

We suggest that you use two-column IEEE format.  Note that full papers should be limited to 15 pages and short papers should be limited to 3 pages.


Submissions are sought in any area related to Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video. Two types of submissions are solicited:  position statements or work in progress reports and full papers. These will be reviewed in entirely different ways and have different deadlines.

Full papers will be subject to a normal review process and are restricted to fifteen pages.  Accepted papers will be presented at the Workshop and will appear in the published proceedings.  The best papers will be forwarded to selected journals for publication.

Position statements and work in progress reports of no more than three pages, will be reviewed by the program committee only.  Papers will be chosen on the basis of their potential to provoke discussion.  Roughly half of the workshop presentations will be allocated to this category.
