Information for Hosting Future NOSSDAV Workshops
NOSSDAV is a uniquely interactive and discussion-oriented workshop
attended by top researchers, students, developers, and practitioners
from academia and industry to discuss new ideas and future directions
in multimedia applications, networking, operating systems, and other
related areas of computing. Over the years, the scope of NOSSDAV has
broadened to include networked games, sensor networks, multimedia
interfaces, and peer-to-peer networking. The scope of NOSSDAV will
continue to evolve by seeking to address the latest challenges in
emerging research areas and core topics in multimedia.
NOSSDAV is a two-day workshop held annually either in late May or
early June. Paper submissions are typically due some time in February.
Proposals to host a future instance of the workshop are due by
MARCH 1ST. A decision will be made by the steering committee and
will be announced before the current year's workshop is held. Future
chairs are expected to organize enough of the details in order to have
a preliminary Call for Papers ready for release at the current year's
workshop. Proposals should be emailed to the chair of the steering
Proposals to host NOSSDAV should include the following information:
- Organizing Committee: a list of positions on the organizing
committee. For all key positions (those other than TPC members), the
proposal should include what experience these individuals have with
past NOSSDAV workshops (attending/submitting/presenting/organizing/etc).
(NOTE: Chairs for a future event are essentially required to attend
NOSSDAV prior to the year in which they chair it.)
- Vision: a brief description of the vision for the workshop,
what topics will be included in the CFP, whether any topics will
be of particular focus, and whether there are any proposed
changes to how the workshop will be organized compared to past
- Location: list of perspective locations and any information
about any details that have already been investigated, e.g.
costs, availability, etc.
