Call for Proposals:

2010 Special Issue

of the

ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications


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 2010 special issue of TOMCCAP. Interested guest-editors should submit proposals covering the following aspects to the EiC by email:


         Guest Editor(s), with brief bio highlighting expertise and prior editorial or program committee experience. It is expected that at least one of the guest editors is a senior researcher.
         Description of the special issue
         Why this topic is relevant/important to the multimedia community today
         Possible sources of authors and submissions (such as workshops and conferences in this field)
         Provisional deadlines: submission, acceptance/rejection announcement, and final version. Final versions must be complete and ready no later than August 15 2010 (hard deadline!).

Please submit your proposals directly by email to the EiC, Prof. Nicolas D. Georganas [log in to unmask] no later than April 30 2009.
