International Workshop on Immersive Mixed and Virtual Environment Systems


MMVE 2019 marks the 11th year anniversary of the MMVE workshop.

MMVE started 11 years ago with a vision of enabling multi-user interactive 3D virtual environments on a massive scale. In recent years, technical advances have enabled many new devices, such as head mounted displays, wearable sensing devices, gesture-based input devices, that increase the level of immersion through how users experience and interact with the 3D virtual environment. At the same time, wearable displays such as smart glasses and the availability of depth-sensing cameras on mobile phones are enabling mixed reality applications. While we are moving closer to the vision of MMVE due to more users having access to 3D mixed/virtual environments with a better experience, the advances also bring new systems research challenges and opportunities: There is now more data to sense, collect, store, transmit, process, display. At the same time, there are tighter constraints on the system performance, such as interaction latency, computation power, energy, and bandwidth, due to increased immersiveness of the system, miniaturization of sensing and display devices, and an increasingly distributed nature of the system. These challenges and opportunities provide the systems research community a rich set of problems on how operating systems, distributed systems, networking systems, programming systems, data management systems, embedded systems can better support mixed or 3D virtual environment applications.

With this perspective, MMVE is renamed "International Workshop on IMmersive Mixed and Virtual Environment Systems.

MMVE will remain a discussion-focused workshop as a forum for researchers and practitioners in the field to discuss new ideas and to present their latest research work. Being co-located with ACM MMSys, a premier conference on multimedia systems, MMVE also provides a unique opportunity for researchers in the field, both from academia and industry, to gather and interact with systems researchers.
