Call For Papers (in pdf and txt)

NOSSDAV 2010 is the 20th anniversary of SIGMM's leading workshop on network and  operating systems support for digital audio and video. The workshop, hosted by the  Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), will continue to focus on emerging research topics, controversial ideas, and future  research directions in the area of multimedia systems research.  As in previous years, we will maintain the focused single-track format a setting that  stimulates lively discussions among the senior and junior participants.

NOSSDAV encourages experimental research based on real systems and real data sets.  Public availability of the source code and data sets discussed in papers presented at  NOSSDAV is highly encouraged.

For NOSSDAV 2010, we will accept papers on a broad ranges of topics related to the  transmission and presentation of digital audio/video objects. We are particularly  interested in soliciting articles that discuss systems-level support for distributed social  networking, as well as papers that focus on local dispatching and performance aspects  of multi-core processors. Other topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

Please contact the workshop general and program chairs to check if your topic is within  the scope of NOSSDAV. In all cases, the quality of presentation (writing style, clarity for  persons outside the direct field) will play a role in submission evaluation.

This year's review process will contain a number of experimental components.  One of these is ability for authors and reviewers to participate in a double-open review  procedure. In this voluntary trial, the names of the submitting authors AND the names  of the participating reviewers will be made available during the process.  (We hope that 25% of the submissions will participate in this experiment.)

Submissions should be at most SIX pages, using standard ACM proceedings style.

Authors of papers selected by the program committee (and one wild-card paper  selected by NOSSDAV participants) will be invited to submit an extended version of their  papers to a special issue of ACM/Springer Multimedia Systems Journal.
