NOSSDAV is a workshop with a long-standing tradition focusing on both emerging and established multimedia systems research topics especially high-risk/high-return ideas. The single-track format brings together academic and industry researchers and practitioners to engage in fruitful and constructive discussions. NOSSDAV encourages papers identifying fundamental open problems in multimedia systems research, advocate new radical ideas or offer counterarguments or critique on the existing state of the art; NOSSDAV prefers exciting-even-if-incomplete papers or reports on promising ideas that may be supported by well-reasoned arguments.

NOSSDAV takes a broad perspective on all areas of multimedia systems. Authors are especially encouraged to submit papers with real-world experimental results and datasets. This includes new ideas relating to (but not limited to):

  • Virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and immersive systems
  • Deep learning approaches to improve multimedia delivery and processing
  • Cloud architectures for multimedia coding and processing
  • Wireless, mobile, IoT and embedded systems for multimedia applications
  • Medical, surveillance and autonomous driving multimedia systems
  • Network-distributed media processing
  • Networked GPUs/TPUs, graphics and virtual environments
  • Audio/Image/Video Analytics Systems
  • System Support for Multimedia Interaction with humans
  • Internet-Scale 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 Web site. Authors must prepare their papers in a way that preserves the anonymity of the authors (double blind). Please do NOT include the author names under the title. The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM Digital Library.

Keynote (all MMSys workshops) (09:00 - 10:00)

  • Title: Quality Management and Sustainability in Video Streaming
  • Speaker: Prof. Luigi Atzori (University of Cagliari)
  • Abstract: The constant increase in the amount of video traffic generated by major streaming platforms and video calling sessions, combined with users' high-quality expectations, places strong demands on proposing procedures for managing resources in the network and on the server side. These procedures should take into account both the quality perceived by the user and the environmental impact. This talk will touch on these two topics, starting by illustrating recent studies regarding the development of models focused on defining personalized quality prediction solutions to consider the individual and personal differences of users. The use of user facial and speech-related features for estimating the QoE (Quality of Experience) of multimedia services is presented, with a particular focus on WebRTC-based video conferencing. The resulting prediction systems can be used to find an appropriate trade-off between quality of experience and sustainability. As a result, it is important to study the impact of different service settings (e.g., video resolution, different luminance types, and different end devices) on both the QoE and the power consumption of video streaming services.
