Call for Papers

The 25th Packet Video Workshop (PV’20), co-located with ACM MMSys, is devoted to presenting technological advancements and innovations in video and multimedia transmission over packet networks. The workshop provides a unique venue for people from the multimedia and networking fields to meet, interact and exchange ideas. Its charter is to promote the research and development in both established and emerging areas of video streaming and multimedia networking. 

PV’20 seeks submission of original work in all areas of multimedia networking, including cutting-edge research and novel applications. Authors are especially encouraged to submit papers with real-world experimental results and datasets. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    • Adaptive media streaming, content storage and content delivery
    • Novel technologies for interactive audiovisual communications
    • Next-generation/future video coding, point cloud compression
    • Cloud and P2P based multimedia
    • Video streaming over software-defined networks
    • Multimedia communications over future networks, such as information-centric networks, next-generation 802.11ax networks and 5G wireless
    • Coding and streaming of immersive media, including VR, AR, 360° video and multi-sensory systems
    • Machine learning in media coding and streaming systems
    • Protocols and standards for real-time multimedia communication (e.g., MPEG, 3GPP, IETF and others)
    • Performance evaluation of proof-of-concept systems for video transmission
    • Low-delay transmission of conversational multimedia
    • Emerging applications: social media, game streaming, personal broadcast, healthcare, industry 4.0, multi-camera surveillance, smart transportation, social VR, 6DoF video, etc.

Prospective authors are recommended to check the call for papers for both NOSSDAV and Packet Video workshops and submit their work based on the respective scopes. The workshop TPC chairs may redirect a submission or an accepted paper to the other workshop as they feel appropriate after notifying the authors.

Submission instructions:

Prospective authors are invited to submit an electronic version of full papers, in PDF format, up to six (6) printed pages plus one (1) page solely for references in length (double column ACM style format) at the workshop Web site. Authors must prepare their papers in a way that preserves the anonymity of the authors. Please do NOT include the author names under the title and remove the references that may lead to authors’ identification. The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM Digital Library.
