ACMMM 2021: Call for Grand Challenge Proposals
===============================================


ACMMM 2021 is calling for Multimedia Grand Challenge (MGC) Proposals. The purpose of MGC is to engage the multimedia research community by establishing well-defined and objectively judged challenge problems intended to exercise the state-of-the-art methods and inspire future research directions. The key criteria for Grand Challenges are that they should be useful, interesting, and their solution should involve a series of research tasks over a long period of time, with pointers towards longer-term research. First presented in ACMMM 2009, MGC has established itself as a prestigious competition in the multimedia community. This year we emphasize the continuity of the grand challenges, which is important in order to support sustained and substantial progress in the state of the art. Therefore, We ask proposers to express a commitment to run their challenges multiple years in a row.
