Call For Papers

For fifteen years, NOSSDAV has fostered cutting-edge state-of-the-art research in multimedia and newly emerging areas such as networked games and peer-to-peer streaming. The workshop environment encourages lively discussion among participants and invites strong feedback for work in progress. For 2005, NOSSDAV will take place in Skamania, Washington. Located along the beautiful Columbia River about 30 miles east of Portland, Oregon, Skamania offers a variety of outdoor activities including golf, river rafting, kayaking, hiking, and quaint riverfront towns steeped in Lewis-and-Clark-era history.

NOSSDAV invites submissions on all areas of multimedia computing and networking and strongly encourages work in progress in emerging areas. Papers grounded in high-quality experimental research based on prototype and real systems are highly valued. Additionally, papers proposing new directions for research or calling into question existing conventional wisdom are welcomed. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Peer-to-peer streaming
  • Networked games
  • Wireless and mobile multimedia systems
  • 3D multimedia and tele-immersion
  • Streaming 3D graphics and virtual worlds
  • Sensor netowrks and architectures
  • In-network stream processing
  • Application-level multicast
  • Multimedia security
  • Digital rights management
  • Real-time operating system support for multimedia
  • Multimedia middleware and frameworks

New for this year are three topic-specific sessions on peer-to-peer streaming, networked games, and mobile media . These sessions will include an invited paper from leading researchers and discussion panels. Papers in these three areas are strongly encouraged. A broad view will be taken in deciding what topics are within scope. Please feel free to contact the workshop co-chairs if you are unsure and wish to check if a particular paper or topic is within the workshop scope.

As always, student participation is strongly encouraged. To encourage a good mix of seasoned researchers as well as students, we will be offering discounted registration for student members who attend with their faculty advisor.

Submissions (as well as the camera ready final versions of accepted papers) should be no longer than 6 pages. We expect these submissions to be the kernel of what will eventually lead to full-length papers at high-quality conferences or journals.

Important Dates

  • February 21, 2005: Paper registration deadline (abstract and title only).
