Please note that due to the fact that all papers (previously long and
short) in 2017, for the first time, have the same paper deadline, we
are extending the deadline for manuscripts to April 20th.

ACM Multimedia 2017 - Call for Regular Papers

ACM Multimedia is the premier conference in multimedia, a research field
that discusses emerging computing methods from a perspective in which each
medium -- e.g. images, text, audio  -- is a strong component of the
complete, integrated exchange of information. The multimedia community has
a tradition of being able to handle big data, it has been a pioneer in
large scale evaluations and dataset creations, and is uniquely angled
towards novel applications and cutting edge industrial challenges. As such
the conference openly embraces new intellectual angles from both industry
as well as academia and welcomes submissions from related fields, such as
data science, HCI and signal processing.

ACM Multimedia 2017 calls for research papers presenting novel theoretical
and algorithmic solutions addressing problems across the domain
of multimedia and related applications. The conference also calls for
papers presenting novel, thought-provoking ideas and promising
(preliminary) results in realizing these ideas.

From 2017 on, the conference invites research papers of varying length from
6 to 8 pages, plus additional pages for the reference pages; i.e., the
reference page(s) are not counted to the page limit of 6 to 8 pages. Please
note that there is no longer the distinction between long and short papers
but the authors may themselves decide on the appropriate length of the
paper. All papers will undergo the same review process and review period.

The conferences invites papers in five major themes of multimedia:
Experience, Systems and Applications, Understanding, Engagement and Novel
Topics. Each of the themes will be led by a program chair of the
conference. Please find in the call a description of the themes and the
topics of interest.

Experience (Program Chair: Susanne Boll)

One of the core tenants of our research community is that multimedia data
contributes to the user experience in a rich and meaningful manner. The
topics organized under this theme are concerned with innovative uses
of multimedia to enhance the user experience, how this experience is
manifested in specific domains, and metrics for qualitatively and
quantitatively measuring that experience in useful and meaningful ways. The
topic areas included under this theme include:

* Perceptual Multimedia
* Ubiquitous Multimedia
* Novel Interactions with Multimedia
* Social, Emotional and Affective Multimedia
* Multimedia Storytelling and Curation
* Multimedia for Collaboration and Public Spaces

Systems and Applications (Program Chair: Kuan-Ta Chen)

Research in multimedia systems is generally concerned with understanding
fundamental tradeoffs between competing resource requirements, developing
practical techniques and heuristics for complex optimization and allocation
strategies, and demonstrating innovative mechanisms and frameworks for
realizing modern multimedia applications. Developing such applications may
concern the design and implementation of computer systems, networks, end
devices, and the performance, resource, adaptability, and usability issues
associated with the target system as a whole.  Within this theme, we have
focussed on four topic areas:

* Multimedia Systems and Middleware
* Multimedia Transport and Delivery
* Multimedia Telepresence and Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality
* Mobile and Wearable Multimedia

Engagement (Program Chair: Jia Li)

The engagement of multimedia with society as whole requires research that
addresses how multimedia can be used to connect people
with multimedia artifacts that meet their needs in a variety of contexts.
The topic areas included under this theme include:

* Multimedia Art, Entertainment and Culture
* Multimedia Search and Recommendation
* Big Data
* Digital Society
* Multimedia Technology for Autonomous Vehicles

Understanding (Program Chair: Shuicheng Yan)

Multimedia data types by their very nature are complex and often involve
intertwined instances of different kinds of information. We can leverage
this multi-modal perspective in order to extract meaning and understanding
of the world, often with surprising results. Specific topics addressed this
year include:

* Deep Learning for Multimedia
* Multimodal/Multisensor Analysis and Description
* Multimedia and Vision

Novel Topics  (Program Chair: Gerald Friedland)

ACM Multimedia s continuously striving to extend its reach by including
cutting edge research from neighboring fields and brand new topics that do
not have a large enough community yet to warrant its own topic. The novel
topic theme therefore invites submissions that cover topics related
to multimedia computing that do not fit anywhere else, including but not
limited to:

* Privacy Implications of Multimedia
* Multimedia for Public Safety
* Multimedia Data Collections
* Multimedia in Data Science
* New Fields in Multimedia

Conflict-Of-Interest (COI) (Program Chair: Phoebe Chen)
All organizers, area chairs and program chairs submit their work to the COI
track which will be handles by Phoebe Chen to avoid any conflicts of
interest. COI Please note that the COI track paper submission site will be
different from the regular paper submission site:

Submission Policy

Regular papers submitted to this conference must conform with the
Double-Blind Review policy such that authors should not know the names of
the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the names of
the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of
the authors.

- Do not put the authors’ names under the title.
- Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier
publications by the authors.
- Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments
(e.g., co-workers and grant IDs).
- Check supplemental material (e.g., titles in the video clips, or
supplementary documents) for information that may identify the authors’
- Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

All papers must be formatted according to ACM proceedings style.

The regular paper submission site is
Please check this site regularly for various updates.


The conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made
available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks
prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
