Dear Colleagues


 Final Regular Paper Submission Deadline: 31 May 2020 PST 


 IEEE BigMM 2020 [Converted to Virtual] 


Due to the COVID-19 situation, the conference will now be converted into an all-digital conference experience. The dates of the conference will remain the same. Though we will miss the opportunity to meet in-person in New Delhi, India but this will help us to reduce the registration fee significantly. 

Moreover, due to the multiple requests from authors, the organizing committee has decided to extend the deadline for regular papers until May 31, 2020. Other tracks have further deadlines.

Consider submitting your papers to the IEEE BigMM 2020.

Kindly share the CFP with others who may wish to submit papers to IEEE BigMM 2020.

In the first round of paper submission at 6th IEEE BigMM 2020, the acceptance of regular papers was very highly competitive. The acceptance rate was 23%. All regular papers were fairly selected by the strict review process that guaranteed each paper received at least three review reports (average: 3.46 reviews; maximum: 4 reviews). Conflict of interest was also carefully taken into account while assigning the papers for reviews. Thus, we are committed to carefully and fairly reviewing all submitted papers and providing high-quality reviews to authors. 

We are also excited to inform you that Prof Ramesh Jain from the University of California, Irvine, USA will deliver a keynote at IEEE BigMM 2020 ( in New Delhi, India. Prof Jain does not need any introduction. He is commonly referred to as 'Father of Multimedia Computing'. We expect to have two more eminent researchers from academia and industry as keynote speakers. 


Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of the CFP.
