Call for Special Session Proposals

ACM SIGMM International Conference on Multimedia Information Retrieval (MIR)
2010 will include special sessions for emerging frontier theories or applications
in the program. Work included in the special sessions is expected to represent
the state-of-the-art and high-impact research directions in multimedia information

Each special session will contain 4 - 6 invited papers. The session organizer(s)
will be responsible for the selection of these papers. The session may begin with
an overview paper on the topic being addressed and then be followed by the papers
with specific technical contributions on the topic.

The following information should be included in the session proposal:

-- Title of the proposed session
-- Session abstract (state significance of topic and rationale for proposed session)
-- Names/affiliation of the organizer(s) (including brief bio and contact info)
-- List of invited contributions, each with
-- Author names
-- A tentative title
-- An abstract (below 1000 words)

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and relevance to
MIR, as well as the qualifications of the organizers and quality of the paper
abstracts in the proposed session.

The organizers of an accepted special session will be responsible for ensuring the
quality of the final papers included in the session as these papers would not otherwise
receive peer reviews.
