MMSys 2015 Technical Demo Call for Papers

18-20 MARCH, 2015

Portland, Oregon, USA.

The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference provides a forum for researchers, engineers, and scientist 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 the 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.  Multimedia systems permeate many aspects of our daily life, and are steadily developed further. MMSys is a venue for researchers who explore:

  • Complete multimedia systems that provide a new kind of multimedia experience or systems whose overall performance improves the state-of-the-art through new research results in one of more components, or
  • Enhancements to one or more system components that provide a documented improvement over the state-of-the-art for handling continuous media or time-dependent services.

Such individual system components include:

  • Operating systems
  • Distributed architectures and protocol enhancements
  • Domain languages, development tools and abstraction layers
  • Using new architectures or computing resources for multimedia
  • New or improved I/O architectures or I/O devices, innovative uses and algorithms for their operation
  • Representation of continuous or time-dependent media
  • Metrics, measures and measurement tools to assess performance

This touches aspects of many hot topics: DASH, games, virtual environments, augmented reality, 3D video, immersive systems, telepresence, multi- and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile streaming, P2P, Clouds, cyber-physical systems – explore the connections on


The technical demonstration session provides an opportunity for participants to showcase their research prototypes, systems, and applications to MMSys attendees. We invite submission of 2-4 page demo proposals (in ACM proceedings style, written in English) describing the research and what will be shown during the demonstration. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and selection will be based on the novelty of the research and interestingness of the demonstration.


Full Paper Submission Deadline: November 10, 2014 Hard deadline November 17, 2014
Acceptance Notification: December 19, 2014
Camera Ready Deadline: January 19, 2015

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
