For 31 years, the International Workshop on Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video (NOSSDAV) has proven to be an outstanding forum for researchers and developers involved in building innovative multimedia systems, networks, and applications. NOSSDAV is strategically positioned at the boundaries of applications and the operating system/network, bridging the gap between highly demanding applications and the infrastructure. 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 networking and systems, in a single-track format that encourages active participation and discussions among academic and industry researchers and practitioners. Out-of-the-box ideas are particularly welcome; NOSSDAV prefers exciting-even-if-incomplete papers over complete-but-boring papers.

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
  • Multimedia computing and systems for metaverse
  • Deep learning approaches to improve multimedia delivery and processing
  • Network and system support for image/video analytics systems
  • Cloud architectures for multimedia coding and processing
  • Media streaming, distribution and storage
  • Wireless, mobile, IoT and embedded systems for multimedia applications
  • Medical, surveillance and autonomous driving multimedia systems
  • Networked games
  • Network-distributed media processing
  • Networked GPUs/TPUs, graphics and virtual environments
  • Security in multimedia systems

Submission Process

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 website. 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 workshop proceedings will be published by ACM Digital Library.

  • Submission deadline: 11th March, 2022 18th March, 2022
  • Acceptance notification: 15th April, 2022
  • Camera-ready deadline: 29th April, 2022 6th May, 2022
  • Online submission: https://nossdav2022.hotcrp.com/
