ICMR 2020 - General Call for Submissions
Dublin, Ireland, 8-11 June 2020 <>
Deadline Extension : 27th January 2020

The Annual ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR) is the premier conference to display scientific achievements in the field of multimedia retrieval and is ranked as CORE B.  ICMR 2020 provides a great opportunity for exchanging leading-edge multimedia retrieval ideas among researchers, practitioners and users of multimedia retrieval systems. ACM ICMR 2020 will take place in Dublin, Ireland on June 8-11, 2020. 

ACM ICMR 2020 is calling for papers (full papers, short papers, brave-new-ideas papers, doctoral symposium papers, demonstrations, as well as submissions for four special sessions and five workshops) presenting significant and innovative research in multimedia retrieval and related fields. Papers should extend the state of the art by addressing new problems or proposing insightful solutions. Please make submissions using the ICMR 2020 submission site ( <>) before 27th January 2020 for full, short, brave-new-ideas, doctoral symposium and special session papers.

The scope of the conference includes core topics in multimedia retrieval and recommendation, as well as the broader set of topics that must be addressed to ensure that multimedia retrieval technologies are of practical use in real-world use cases. Topics of interest include:

Content and context based indexing
Search and retrieval of multimedia data
Multimodal content analysis and retrieval
Deep learning for multimedia retrieval
Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for multimedia data
Complex multimedia event detection
Learning and relevance feedback in multimedia retrieval
Query models, paradigms, and languages for multimedia retrieval
Hashing and indexing algorithms for large-scale retrieval
Cross-media retrieval
Visual search and retrieval
Human perception based multimedia retrieval
Studies of information-seeking behavior among image/video users
Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for image/video retrieval
HCI issues in multimedia retrieval
Crowdsourcing in multimedia retrieval
Community-based multimedia content management
Internet of multimedia things
Image/video summarization and visualization
Mobile visual search
Multimedia analysis for societal good
Evaluation of multimedia retrieval systems
Applications of multimedia retrieval (Healthcare, Sustainability, Security, Personal Data/Lifelogs, Fintech, Autonomous vehicles/systems, etc.)

Full Paper Track
The Full Paper Track provides the opportunity for researchers to present their state of the art research in Multimedia Retrieval, which makes, or has the potential to make, a significant contribution to the field. Full paper submissions should be no longer than 8 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Deadline 27th January 2020.

Short Paper Track
The Short Paper Track calls for original contributions presenting novel, thought-provoking ideas and addressing innovative application areas within the field of Multimedia Retrieval. The inclusion of promising (preliminary) results is encouraged but not required. Papers that stimulate and promote discussion are particularly encouraged. Short paper submissions should be 4 pages in length at a maximum, with one additional page for references if needed. Deadline 27th January 2020.

Demonstration Track
The Demonstration Track provides the opportunity for researchers to present their research prototypes and operational systems which they wish to share with the community, obtain feedback from experts, and exchanges knowledge on implementing and developing such systems. Submissions should clearly define their purpose, scope, and audience. All submissions should provide a URL to a live online version of their demo or, alternatively, provide a URL to a video showcasing the main features of their demo. Demo submissions should be 4 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Deadline 01st March 2020.

Brave New Ideas Track
The Brave New Ideas Track is calling for innovative papers that suggest new opportunities and challenges for multimedia retrieval. A BNI paper is expected to stimulate activity towards addressing new, long term challenges of interest to the multimedia retrieval community. The papers should address topics with a clear potential for high societal impact; authors should be able to argue that their proposal is important to solving problems, to supporting new perspectives, or to providing services that positively impact on people. Note that is not necessary that papers in this track have large-scale experimental results or comparisons to the state of the art, since it is expected that large, publicly available datasets may not be available, and there may be no existing approaches to which the proposed approach in the paper can be compared. BNI papers should be no longer than 8 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Deadline 27th January 2020.

Doctoral Symposium Track
ICMR 2020 doctoral symposium plans to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics aligned with the topics of this year’s conference. Prospective student attendees should already have a clear direction for research, and possibly have published some results. Each doctoral symposium paper should not be longer than 4 pages, with one additional page for references if needed. ICMR 2020 will use a single-blind review process for doctoral symposium paper selection. The paper should primarily be written by the doctoral student, but the advisor(s) may be included as authors. For full submission details, please see the ICMR 2020 website. Deadline 27th January 2020.

Special Sessions
Associated with ACM ICMR 2020 are four special sessions representing state of the art topics and directions in the field of multimedia retrieval. These special sessions can be chosen when submitting your paper on the submission system ( <>). The four special sessions are:
Human-Centric Cross-modal Retrieval
Knowledge-Driven Analysis and Retrieval on Multimedia
Multimedia Information Retrieval for Urban Data
Detection of Daily Living Activities

Papers submitted to special sessions should be no more than 8 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Deadline 27th January 2020.

Five workshops will be held the day before ICMR, to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and research results in more interactive and focused venues:
The Third Annual Workshop on the Lifelog Search Challenge (LSC 2020)
Joint Workshop on Multimedia Artworks Analysis and Attractiveness Computing in Multimedia (MMArt-ACM 2020)
Multimedia for Cooking and Eating Activities (CEA2020)
Analysis of Medical and Sports Sensor Data Using Deep Learning
Intelligent Cross-Data Analysis and Retrieval
Each workshop will have their own submission system and we refer authors to the ICMR2020 website ( <>) for more details of these workshops. Workshop papers should be no longer than 6 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Deadline 15th March 2020.

Submission Guidelines
All submissions must be written in English and be formatted according to the ACM proceedings style. All papers should be submitted electronically through the conference submission system. Full paper, short paper, special session paper and Brave New Ideas paper submissions will be refereed through double-blind peer review. Demonstration papers and Doctoral Symposium papers will undergo single-blind review. Accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings published by ACM. Submissions to the workshops that are accepted will be published in the accompanying ACM workshop proceedings. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the conference. Accepted submissions must be presented at the conference -- and at least one author will be required to register at the normal registration rate. 

Student Support
Commencing in 2020, SIGMM will centralise SIGMM support for student travel to SIGMM events.  SIGMM will provide funding support for all students who are first authors of full/special session papers at ICMR 2020 and look favourably on other requests from student first authors. Full details of the application process will be updated on the ICMR 2020 website in early February.

The organisers of ACM ICMR2020 have committed to making the conference fully carbon neutral. Consequently the conference venues have been chosen to be central located, within walking distance of each other, and based on their sustainability credentials. Additionally, the organisers will reduce the use of paper and plastic at the conference and will offset the carbon produced by EVERY attendee’s travel to Dublin by planting native Irish trees.
