ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications and  
The ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and  
Applications, published quarterly, is the flagship publication of the  
ACM Special Interest Group in Multimedia (SIGMM). It focuses on  
multimedia computing (I/O devices, OS, storage systems, streaming  
media middleware, continuous media representations, media coding,  
media processing, etc.), multimedia communications (real-time  
protocols, end-to-end streaming media, resource allocation, multicast  
protocols, etc.), and multimedia applications (databases, distributed  
collaboration, video conferencing, 3D virtual environments, etc.).
TOMCCAP publishes one special issue per year, which traditionally  
appears as the November issue. The process of choosing the special  
issue is highly selective, and this is a call for proposals for the

proposals covering the following aspects to the EiC by email:

prior editorial or program committee experience. It is expected that  
at least one of the guest editors is a senior researcher.
