Call for Demonstrations

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit extended abstracts of systems and working prototypes addressing any aspect related to multimedia. The purpose of the demonstrations is to give MMM attendants a real, practical, and interactive idea of the presenters’ research ideas, scientific contributions, or engineering solutions in an interactive setting. All kinds of demonstrations of working systems, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts that demonstrate new solutions, interesting ideas, or new applications of multimedia systems and applications are welcome.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

MULTIMEDIA CONTENT ANALYSIS

  • Multimedia Indexing
  • Multimedia Mining
  • Multimedia Abstraction and Summarisation
  • Multimedia Annotation, Tagging and Recommendation
  • Multimodal Analysis for Retrieval Applications
  • Semantic Analysis of Multimedia and Contextual Data
  • Multimedia Fusion Methods
  • Media Content Linking and Threading Methods
  • Media Content Browsing and Retrieval Tools

MultiMedia SIGNAL PROCESSING AND COMMUNICATIONS

  • Media Representation and Algorithms
  • Audio, Image, Video Processing, Coding and Compression
  • Multimedia Sensors and Interaction Modes
  • Multimedia Privacy, Security and Content Protection
  • Multimedia Standards and Related Issues
  • Advances in Multimedia Networking and Streaming
  • Multimedia Databases, Content Delivery and Transport
  • Wireless and Mobile Multimedia Networking

MM APPLICATIONS AND SERVICES

  • Multi-Camera & Multi-View Systems
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality, Virtual Environments
  • Real-Time and Interactive Multimedia Applications
  • Mobile Multimedia Applications
  • Multimedia Web Applications
  • Multimedia Authoring and Personalisation
  • Interactive Multimedia and Interfaces
  • Sensor Networks (Video Surveillance, Distributed Systems)
  • Social and Educational Multimedia Applications
  • Other Emerging Trends (e-learning, e-Health, MM Collaboration, etc.)

We encourage authors of regular paper submissions to submit associated demos. If this is the case, please indicate in the extended abstract the submission ID of the corresponding regular paper.

 

Submission Guidelines

Authors and presenters of demonstrations must submit:

  1. An extended abstract (in conference paper format) summarizing their demonstration.

The abstracts of accepted demonstrations will be citable and published in the conference proceedings. Page limit is maximum four pages. Please refer to the Call for Papers on the website for templates. Submissions do NOT need to be blind.

  1. An additional file illustrating what will be shown at the demo session at MMM.

We recommend submitting a short video (max. 3 min) but other files are fine (e.g., a PowerPoint file with screenshots, photos, or other forms of illustration). File limit for upload is 20MB. If you have larger files, please contact the demo co-chairs (see emails below).

Demo submissions will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • What is the scientific or engineering concept behind the work?
  • What is the novel or innovative aspect?
  • What makes it interesting for showing to the MMM attendants and the multimedia community?

It is recommended that the submitted files reflect the answers to these questions. Notice that these criteria are not exclusive. We aim at having a manifold and interesting demo session addressing all kinds of multimedia related issues. Thus, work that lacks in novelty, but demonstrates important aspects about multimedia is also welcome, as are initial implementations of preliminary but innovative, new ideas.

 

Facilities at conference

Presenters are expected to bring the necessary equipment (computers, etc.) themselves. The conference will provide a table, power outlet, and wireless (shared) internet. If you have special needs (e.g., more space), please include a related note into your demo submission.
