Important Dates:
* September 24, 2010: Submission Deadline
* November 9, 2010: Notification Date

ACM Multimedia Systems conference provides a forum for 
researchers, engineers, and scientists to present and share 
their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While
research about specific aspects of multimedia systems is regularly
published in the various proceedings and transactions of the
networking, operating system, real-time system, and database
communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the context of
multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to view the
intersections and interplay of the various approaches and solutions
developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data
types. Furthermore, MMSys provides an avenue for communicating
research that addresses multimedia systems holistically.

*** Dataset Track ***

MMSys is introducing a new Dataset Track to the conference to
encourage and recognize dataset sharing among researchers from both
industry and academia. Submission to the dataset track will
need to include:

* A URL where the dataset is located.  

* A short paper (up to 6 pages) describing the format of the data
collected, the methodology used to collect the dataset, and basic
characterizing statistics from the dataset.

Authors of datasets accepted for publication will receive:
* Dataset hosting from MMSys for at least 5 years.
* Citable publication of the dataset description in the proceedings.
* Inclusion in a poster session at the conference.
* Discounted conference registration.

Datasets should be appropriately anonymized. 

Datasets will be evaluated by the committee on the basis of the
collection methodology and the value of the dataset as a resource
for the research community.

*** Full Paper Track ***

Full papers submitted can be up to 12 pages long. 

Authors of papers that rely upon or use an underlying dataset are
encouraged to also submit the dataset to the dataset track if
possible.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Multimedia Systems
* Multimedia Networking
* Multimedia Operating Systems
* Multimedia Databases
* Large-Scale and Remote Display Architectures
* Real-Time Support For Multimedia
* Networked Games
* Virtual and Augmented Worlds
* Cyber-Physical Systems
* Peer-to-Peer Architectures for Streaming and Multicast
* Modeling of Multimedia Systems
* Multimedia Interfaces
* Multimedia Middleware and Toolkits
* Multimedia Programming Languages
* Cloud-based Multimedia Processing
* Multi-Core Support for Multimedia
* Mobile Multimedia Systems
* 3D and Multiview Streaming

*** Special Session: Modern Media Transport ***

The conference will include a special session on modern media
transport. More information about the special session can be found in
a separate call for papers located at http://www.mmsys.org. 

Please note that the submission dates for the special session 
are different than the main conference.


                        Hosted By Cisco

This year the conference will be hosted by Cisco. The MMSys
organizing committee gratefully acknowledges this generous show of
support for this research community and welcomes the participation of
all industry researchers.
