We are continuously accepting submissions for the SIGMM's quarterly newsletter, the SIGMM Records, whose next edition will be published on December 31, 2013.


The SIGMM Records are a channel for researchers to disseminate their achievements to the multimedia research community at large. The Records publish relevant information about SIGMM members' research, disseminate opinions and raise discussions. They are not intended for the publication of original research results, and they do not require a transfer of copyright. Summaries of the latest PhD theses that have been completed by, but not limited to, SIGMM researchers or under the supervision of SIGMM researchers are of particular interest.


The Records are accessible through the SIG's website, the dedicated mailing list [log in to unmask], and the ACM Digital Library (ISSN number 1947-4598). You can find all issues as well as links to back issues in the ACM digital library at the website:



The PhD thesis abstracts we published in the last issue (September, 2013) are listed as follows for your information.

In particular, we are also inviting reports from cooperative research projects (i.e. involving more than one institute, university or company) that contributes to any area of multimedia. These are not just texts that are submitted through the web page. Instead, we ask people who run such research projects to get in touch with Mathias Lux <[log in to unmask]> or Carsten Griwodz <[log in to unmask]>, and we will conduct an interview.


Best regards,


The Editors of the ACM SIGMM Records:


Carsten Griwodz (Simula Research Laboratory) Mathias Lux (Klagenfurt University) Stephan Kopf (University of Mannheim) Viktor Wendel (Darmstadt University of Technology) Wei Tsang Ooi (National University of Singapore) Lei Zhang (Microsoft)
