MMSys 2016 Dataset Track – Call for Papers

May 10-13, 2016

Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, Austria

The ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys) provides 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, realtime 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.

One aspect of MMSys that we encourage is the use of common datasets for experimentation leading to reproducible research. As an integral part of the conference since 2012, the Dataset Track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to make their work available and citable. Authors publishing datasets will benefit by increasing the public awareness of their effort in collecting the datasets.

In particular, authors of datasets accepted for publication will receive:

  • Dataset hosting from MMSys for at least 5 years
  • Dataset listing in QUALINET DATABASES
  • Citable publication of the dataset description in the proceedings published by ACM
  • An oral presentation time at the MMSys 2016 Dataset Track

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the technical program committee of the MMSys 2016. 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.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Authors interested in submitting a dataset should:

  1. Make their data available by providing a public URL for download
  2. Write a short paper describing
    • motivation for data collection and intended use of the data set,
    • the format of the data collected,
    • the methodology used to collect the dataset, and
    • basic characterizing statistics from the dataset.

Papers should be at most 6 pages long (in PDF format) prepared in the ACM style and written in English. The submission site for the dataset track is available here:

https://mmsys2016.itec.aau.at/submission/dataset/

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Submission deadline: February 19, 2016
  • Acceptance notification: March 23, 2016
  • Camera ready deadline: April 8, 2016

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.
