Welcome Message and Call for Participation

It is our pleasure to welcome you to ACM PV 2018, the 23rd Packet Video Workshop, co-located with ACM MMSys 2018 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The Packet Video Workshop series 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 media coding 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.

The workshop is a single-track event and includes paper submissions from both cutting-edge research as well as business and consumer applications. It specifically targets papers in all areas of media delivery over current Internet Protocol (IP) and future networks. Authors are especially encouraged to submit papers with real-world experimental results and datasets.

This year’s edition of Packet Video [program] comprises three technical sessions related to new media applications, content coding, and media streaming. We are happy having Jason Burgess (Comcast) at Packet Video to give a keynote about Simultaneous Migration of Codecs, Formats and DRM. Finally, we invite everyone joining the PV 2018 happy hour (“borrel”) sponsored by DASH-IF and participate in an interactive, moderated discussion, where we will discuss key topics and questions related to Packet Video and HTTP adaptive streaming (HAS).

We sincerely hope that the carefully crafted technical program, social events, scientific discussions, and your other activities in Amsterdam and its surroundings will make your ACM PV 2018 participation worthwhile and a memorable experience.
