Call for Papers: MMSys 2018 [The extended submission date]

=========================================================
MMSys 2018
Science Park Congress Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
June 12-15, 2018
=========================================================
 
The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys) and associated workshops (MMVE2018, NetGames2018, NOSSDAV2018, PV2018) provide a forum for researchers to present and share their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia systems are regularly published in the various proceedings and transactions of the networking, operating system, real-time system, database, mobile computing, distributed systems, and middleware communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the context of multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to investigate the intersections and the inter-play of the various approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data types.
 
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 more than one component, 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
 
Relevant and interesting themes:
Adaptive streaming, games, virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality,
3D video, Ultra-HD, HDR, immersive systems, plenoptics, 360° video, multimedia IoT, 
multi- and many-core, GPGPUs, mobile multimedia and 5G, wearable multimedia, P2P, 
cloud-based multimedia, cyber-physical systems, multi-sensory experiences, smart cities, QoE
