The 11th International Workshop on Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video (NOSSDAV 2001) will bring together participants from academia and industry to present and discuss new ideas and future directions in networking and operating system support for multimedia. Exponential improvements in networking bandwidth, cost, and ubiquity coupled with the growing availability and use of streaming media content pose new networking and operating system research opportunities and challenges at the global systems level. We solicit papers in current or emerging areas including but not limited to ubiquitous multimedia services, broadband streaming media content distribution, webcasting, end-to-end resource management, real-time interactive streaming audio services, internet telephony, interactive network games, wireless multimedia systems, and multimedia information appliances and consumer devices. The workshop particularly encourages submission of papers describing implementations, measurements and field experience.

To ensure a productive workshop environment, attendance will be limited to about 70 participants who are active in the field. Each potential participant should submit a position paper or extended abstract that identifies new problems and explains why they are important, challenges conventional wisdom, advocates a specific solution, and/or reports on actual experience with real systems. Papers will be subject to a normal review process and are restricted to five pages. Participants will be invited based on the originality, technical merit and topical relevance of their submissions, as well as the likelihood that the ideas expressed in their submissions will lead to insightful technical discussions at the workshop. Papers submitted to NOSSDAV must not have been published or submitted elsewhere. Please do not submit abbreviated versions of journal or conference papers. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present at the workshop and publish full-length versions of their papers in the workshop proceedings.

All submissions must be made through the web. Detailed guidelines for submissions are available here. Due to the number of requests for extensions, the submission deadline has been extended one week.
