Welcome

Welcome

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys 2017), held from June 20-23, 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan.

We are happy to announce that this year, four renowned workshops will be co-located with ACM Multimedia Systems 2017 (MMSys’17): NOSSDAV, MoVid, MMVE, and NetGames.  This is the first in MMSys history to have FOUR co-located workshops.  We believe this arrangement will certainly make the general multimedia systems community more tightly coupled and also ease the travel overhead of its members.

We believe that MMSys and its co-located workshops will stimulate fruitful scientific discussions and, together with social activities around Taipei city and other cities in Taiwan. Taiwan is well known for the overwhelming friendliness of its people and the diversity in its food – We hope this will provide everyone a unique experience to Southeast Asia and great memories.
