MMVE solicits full papers (4-6 pages) and short papers (2-3 pages), covering one of the above or closely related topics. Short paper submissions are expected to either present a work-in-progress or describe a system or application suitable for demonstration at the workshop.

All submissions should be formatted using the standard ACM proceedings style. All submissions must be blinded and constitute original, unpublished work not under review elsewhere. Submissions will undergo a double-blind peer review process and will be selected based on their originality, merit, and relevance to the workshop. Accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors at the workshop and will be archived in ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM MMSys 2020 proceedings.
