The 12th International Workshop on Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video (NOSSDAV) brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry to present and discuss new ideas and future directions in networking and operating systems support for multimedia. For 11 years, NOSSDAV has proven to be an outstanding forum for researchers and developers involved in building innovative multimedia systems, networks, and applications.

Multimedia data such as pictures, MP3s, motion video, digital library collections, interactive network games, and others have become pervasive, primary data sources. NOSSDAV seeks to discuss and examine new, efficient, and effective infrastructure and applications to support these demanding primary data sources.

To ensure a productive workshop environment, attendance will be limited to about 75 participants who are active in the field. A key aspect of the workshop is that it provides extensive discussion periods during which attendees can informally discuss their current work and future research directions. Traditionally, NOSSDAV has emphasized high quality experimental research based on prototype or real systems. NOSSDAV 2002 will continue this tradition.


Submissions are sought in any area related to Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

We solicit submissions of 5-page extended abstracts of technical papers, work-in-progress reports, and position statements. Papers should identify new problems and explain why they are important, challenge conventional wisdom, advocate a specific solution, and/or report on actual experience with real systems. All submissions will be reviewed by the members of the program committee. Submissions will be selected on the basis of their originality, technical merit and topical relevance, as well as the likelihood that the ideas will lead to insightful technical discussions. Papers submitted to NOSSDAV must not have been published or submitted elsewhere. Please do not submit abbreviated versions of journal or conference papers.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present at the workshop and publish full-length versions of their papers in the workshop proceedings.

All submissions must be made through the web. We suggest that authors use the two-column ACM format for the submissions. Detailed paper submission guidelines will be available here in January.
