As in previous years, NOSSDAV will continue to focus on both established and emerging research topics, high-risk high-return ideas and proposals, and future research directions in multimedia systems. In a single-track format the encourages active participation and discussions among academic and industry researchers and practitioners. Out-of-the-box ideas are particularly welcome.

The workshop seeks papers in all areas of multimedia systems with an emphasis on the systems aspects. Authors are especially encouraged to submit papers with real-world experimental results and datasets. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and immersive systems
  • Cloud architectures for multimedia coding and processing
  • Wireless, mobile, IoT, and embedded systems for multimedia applications
  • Medical multimedia systems
  • Multi-core and many-core systems, distribution and storage components
  • Network-distributed video coding and network-based media processing
  • Multimedia systems for autonomous driving
  • Multimedia systems support in mobile networks, such as 5G
  • Networked GPUs, graphics, and virtual environments
  • Systems for computer vision applications
  • Security in multimedia systems

Prospective authors are recommended to check the call for papers for both NOSSDAV and Packet Video workshops and submit their work based on the respective scopes. The workshop TPC chairs may redirect a submission or an accepted paper to the other workshop as they feel appropriate after notifying the authors.


Prospective authors are invited to submit an electronic version of full papers, in PDF format, up to six (6) printed pages plus one (1) page solely for references in length (double column ACM style format) at the workshop Web site. Authors must prepare their papers in a way that preserves the anonymity of the authors. Please do NOT include the author names under the title. The proceedings will be published by ACM Digital Library.

  • Submission deadline: February 24, 2019
  • Acceptance notification: April 1, 2019
  • Camera-ready deadline: April 19, 2019
  • Online submission: https://nossdav19.hotcrp.com/

Note that the submissions to the workshop are eligible for the DASH-IF Excellence in DASH Awards as well as the Best-paper Awards.
