1. Call for Papers

ACM Multimedia is the premier international conference in multimedia. It covers multiple emerging fields focusing on advancing the research and applications of many media, including but not limited to images, text, audio, speech, music, sensor and social data.  It strongly encourages a complete and integrated approach to exchange, process and utilize information across modalities, as well as all cutting-edge research on each medium with potential of great positive impacts on everyday lives and technological breakthroughs.
While the community has a tradition of developing and innovating AI and system approaches to handle big data and improve users’ experiences on engaging and interacting with multimedia, it is also uniquely angled towards novel applications and urgent industrial challenges. As such the conference openly embraces new intellectual perspectives from both industry and academia, and welcomes submissions from related fields, such as artificial intelligence, vision and languages, data sciences, HCI and multimedia signal processing, as well as healthcare, education and beyond.  We invite the submissions in four major themes of multimedia.

Engaging Users with Multimedia
        Emotional and social signals
        Multimedia search and recommendations
        Summarization, analysis and storytelling

Experience
        Interactions and quality of experiences
        Art and culture
        Multimedia applications

Multimedia Systems
        Systems and middleware
        Transport and delivery
        Data systems management and indexing

Understanding Multimedia Content
        Multimodal fusion and embedding
        Vision and language
        Media interpretation

2. Highlights of ACM Multimedia 2020

Scientific Diversity: It is among our top priorities to ensure a top-quality conference that covers a full diversity of all fields of multimedia research including a variety of media modalities by addressing both technological and practical challenges.

Value: We strive to select the most innovative and the highest-quality research aiming at the most impactful novelty on individual media and/or from a systematic perspective of innovating and integrating multiple components across modalities.

Sharing: We value the sharing of not only knowledge (in the form of papers, presentations and demos) but also the code and open-source software. While we will continue the implementation of the ACM Artifact Review and Badging, best efforts will be made on sharing and preserving the open-source code and systems resulting from the published papers.

3. Location

The conference will be held in Chengdu, the capital city of the Sichuan Province in China.
