Greetings from the ACM Multimedia committee. We wish to thank everyone
who contributed and attended to last years conference in Berkeley.
With a paper acceptance rate of less than 20%, the conference's
technical program was extremely strong.
It's now time to prepare for Multimedia 2004 to be held in New York
City next October; the enclosed CFP outlines the details. There will
be several new exciting additions to the conference. The Brave New
Topics session will extend the boundaries of multimedia research, and
an Art Exhibit will showcase the boundaries between Art and
!! The submission deadlines for panels, workshops, and brave new topics,
Please pass the CFP on to any interested colleagues.

Technical Demonstrations will include leading edge work in every area
of multimedia technology and its application. An award will be given
to the best technical demo.
An Art Exhibit will include creative interactive multimedia
demonstrations and applications.
Video Demonstrations allow researchers and artists to demonstrate
their tool, system or application without having to bring the
equipment for a "live" demo.
Day-long Workshops on topics of great current interest to members of
the multimedia research community will precede the technical program.
The Doctoral Symposium is a venue for doctoral students to present
