HOW TO SUBMIT A WORKSHOP PROPOSAL
ACM Multimedia Workshops should address clearly focused topics. These topics may lie in the research fields pertinent to the main conference - often dedicated to an "arising" focus area - or bridge ACM MM topics with other areas like, for instance, E-Learning.
Workshop Format and Date
Half-day and full-day workshops can be accommodated.
The scheduled workshop day for ACM Multimedia 2008 is Friday, October 31, 2008.

Workshop proposals must be submitted by April 27, 2008.
Notification of acceptance will be by May 10, 2008
