The 14th ACM International Workshop on Network and
Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video

June 16-18, 2004 --- Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland


NOSSDAV 2004 will take place in Kinsale on the exceptionally scenic southern coast of Ireland. Kinsale is approximately a 20 minute drive outside Cork city, which is within easy reach of major European capitals and the east coast of the US. The workshop is sponsored primarily by ACM SIG Multimedia, Microsoft Research the US National Science Foundation and Science Foundation Ireland, with secondary sponsorship by IBM Research, and is being held in cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM and ACM SIGMOBILE.

NOSSDAV invites submissions on all areas of multimedia, but strongly encourages submissions in newly emerging specialized areas such as networked games and peer-to-peer streaming. NOSSDAV 2004 will be run very much as a workshop with an emphasis on cutting-edge research and lively discussion. Papers grounded in high-quality experimental research based on prototype or real systems, including innovative experimental commercial designs and prototypes, as well as papers proposing new research directions for the community or calling into question existing conventional wisdom are particularly welcome. Given the growth and diversification of the field, a broad view will be taken in deciding what papers are within the scope of the workshop. For instance, papers describing novel ideas in congestion control or application-level multicast that are arguably of interest in the context of multimedia, would be in scope. If you are unsure and wish to check if a paper is within the workshop scope please email the Co-Chairs. Student participation is strongly encouraged - supported by several student travel grants and registration fee rebates.

Submissions as well as camera-ready versions of accepted papers should be no longer than 6 pages. The expectation is that papers accepted at the workshop will eventually lead to full-length papers at high-quality conferences or journals. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Networked games
  • Peer-to-peer multimedia
  • Broadband streaming media content distribution
  • 3D multimedia and (networked) immersive environments
  • Wireless and ad-hoc network multimedia systems
  • Embedded multimedia devices (e.g., PVRs)
  • Multimedia security
  • Internet telephony
  • Sensory interactive applications
  • Digital rights management
