18th International workshop on
Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video
Braunschweig, Germany    May 28-30, 2008

Sponsored by ACM SIG Multimedia
Co-sponsored by the Technical University of Braunschweig
and Simula Research Laboratory

As it is established practice at NOSSDAV, the 18th installment will focus on cutting-edge, state-of-the-art research in multimedia and newly emerging areas. NOSSDAV in Braunschweig will be held under the dual sign of interactivity. Firstly, we are encouraging submissions to the topic of system support for interactive multimedia in particular. New and innovative ideas will be preferred over contributions aimed at perfecting established topics. Controversial ideas and approaches and their open discussion are strongly encouraged. Secondly, we want to incite interactivity among the senior and junior participants. Workshop setting and schedule will be such that discussion is fostered, and it should be especially worthwhile for graduate students with innovative ideas to meet senior researchers as well as peers and receive feedback from them.

Professor Jörg Liebeherr, University of Toronto, will give the keynote speech of NOSSDAV 2008 with the title "Overlays can do more ... if not everything". To learn more, please follow this link.

A publication of the best papers of the workshop in a special issue of MMSJ is intended.

Please note that IWQoS is held on June 2-4 at the University of Twente. If you are also interested in attending IWQoS, you can easily combine the two trips.
