Report on GMSys 2024: Second International ACM Green Multimedia Systems Workshop

The second International ACM Green Multimedia Systems Workshop, hosted and organized as part of the 15th ACM Multimedia Systems Conference, took place on Thursday, April 18, 2024, in Bari, Italy. The workshop provided a platform for discussing innovative ideas and research findings in multimedia systems, specifically focusing on energy usage and environmental impact within multimedia frameworks.

GMSys featured five technical presentations, with an acceptance rate of 62.5%. These presentations, comprising both full and short papers, covered a range of innovative approaches and solutions related to green video streaming. It provided a valuable opportunity for multimedia researchers to delve into this critical topic.

The workshop brought together experts and researchers from universities and research institutes, including InterDigital, Fraunhofer FOKUS, Alpen-Adria-Universitat Klagenfurt, University at Buffalo, and researchers from leading companies such as Technology Innovation Institute (TII), Bitmovin, and IBM, all focused on advancing green video streaming technology.

We want to thank you to everyone who made our workshop awesome – participants, speakers, committees, authors, and attendees! Your support was key to our success.

Huge thanks to the ACM organizing team, especially Luca De Cicco and Ali C. Begen, for helping us host this event.

A special thanks to GAIA and Green Streaming for their generous technical sponsorship, which helped us pull everything together smoothly.
