Amsterdam, The Netherlands. June 2-4, 2010

NOSSDAV 2010 is the 20th anniversary of SIGMM's leading workshop on
network and operating systems support for digital audio and video. The
workshop, hosted by the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) and the
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), will continue to focus on emerging
research topics, controversial ideas, and future research directions
in the area of multimedia systems research.

As in previous years, we will maintain the focused single-track format
a setting that stimulates lively discussions among the senior and
junior participants.

NOSSDAV encourages experimental research based on real systems and
real data sets. Public availability of the source code and data sets
discussed in papers presented at NOSSDAV is highly encouraged.

For NOSSDAV 2010, we will accept papers on a broad ranges of topics
related to the transmission and presentation of digital audio/video
objects. We are particularly interested in soliciting articles that
discuss systems-level support for distributed social networking, as
well as papers that focus on local dispatching and performance aspects
of multi-core processors. Other topics of interest include (but are
not restricted to):

* OS, middleware and network support
* Overlay networks
* Media streaming, distribution and storage support
* Web 2.0 systems and social networks
* Media sensor and ad hoc networks / Embedded systems
* Multicore architecture support
* Wireless and mobile multimedia systems / Network processor support
* Networked GPU's, graphics and virtual environments
* Networked games / Real-time immersive systems
* Multimedia communications and system security

Please contact the workshop general and program chairs to check if
your topic is within the scope of NOSSDAV. In all cases, the quality
of presentation (writing style, clarity for persons outside the direct
field) will play a role in submission evaluation.

This year's review process will contain a number of experimental
components.  One of these is ability for authors and reviewers to
participate in a double-open review procedure. In this voluntary
trial, the names of the submitting authors AND the names of the
participating reviewers will be made available during the process.
(We hope that 25% of the submissions will participate in this

Submissions should be at most SIX pages, using standard ACM
proceedings style.  Each submission should contain a one-page extended
abstract that explains the core contributions of the work to a wide
NOSSDAV audience.

Authors of papers selected by the program committee (and one wild-card
paper selected by NOSSDAV participants) will be invited to submit an
extended version of their papers to a special issue of ACM/Springer
Multimedia Systems Journal.
