ACM Multimedia 2011

ACM Multimedia 2011 is the worldwide premier multimedia conference and a key event to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products. The conference offers to scientists and practitioners in the area of multimedia plenary, scientific and technical sessions, tutorials, competitions, panels and discussion meetings on relevant and challenging research questions. ACM Multimedia 2011 will also provide the opportunity of interaction between artists and engineers with the aim of reflecting on the impact of multimedia technologies on contemporary digital culture.

ACM Multimedia 2011 solicits submissions for the programs listed below:

- Full papers and Short papers

- Technical Demos

- Interactive Art Exhibits

- Open Source Software Competition

- Multimedia Grand Challenge Competition

- Tutorials

- Workshops

- Panels

- Industrial Exhibit

- Doctoral Symposium

A key innovation for ACM Multimedia 2011 is the transition from tracks to areas, which represent broad, cross-cutting themes of interest to the multimedia community. Authors will identify a primary area and a secondary area for their submitted paper. ACM Multimedia 2011 seeks contributions in 10 broad areas, including:

1/ multi-modal integration and understanding in the imperfect world,

2/ media analysis and search,

3/ scalability in media processing, analysis, and applications,

4/ multimedia systems and middleware,

5/ media transport and sharing,

6/ multimedia security,

7/ media authoring and production,

8/ location-based and mobile multimedia,

9/ human, social, and educational aspects of multimedia,

10/ arts and contemporary digital culture.

Details of each area can be found on the ACM Multimedia 2011 website.

Proposals for accompanying workshops are also solicited on topics pertinent to the main conference that demand a dedicated coverage due to their relevance to the current multimedia research and development.

Awards will be given to the best paper and best student paper as well as best demo, SIGMM Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis in Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications. We shall give awards to best art program paper and exhibition.
