Call for Multimedia Grand Challenge Papers


The Multimedia Grand Challenge presents a set of problems and issues from industry leaders and top academic institutions, geared to engage the Multimedia research community in solving relevant, interesting and challenging questions for multimedia on a 3-5 year vision. The Multimedia Grand Challenge was first presented as part of ACM Multimedia 2009 and has established itself as a prestigious competition in the multimedia community. This year’s conference will continue the tradition with three challenges:

* Social Media Prediction

* The 2nd MSR Video to Language Challenge

* Lane Level Localization on a 3D Map

Accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings, and will be presented in a special event during the conference. At the conference, finalists will be requested to introduce their solutions, give a quick demo, and take questions from the judges and the audience. Winners will be selected for Multimedia Grand Challenge awards based on their presentation.
