Due to the COVID-19 impact, the deadline of several tracks are extended as follows：
With numerous requests from the multimedia community, we decide to further extend the deadline for regular papers to 5/24 with the following timeline thereafter. We hope this will give those authors from the areas heavily impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak more time to prepare for their submissions.
All other tracks (workshops, challenges, tutorials, demo & video, brave new topics, etc. ) may adjust the timeline accodingly based on the preparation schedule by ACM publisher at http://www.scomminc.com/pp/schedules/MM20-ACM-DL-only-schedule.htm.
Due to travel restrictions not having ended or and/or possible reoccurrence of the pandemic and new safety measures in the fall, ACM Multimedia 2020 may happen as a virtual conference or as a partially virtual conference (https://www.acm.org/virtual-conferences).
The proceedings will be published in the ACM DL on schedule. It means that the MM conference in 2020 will maintain the same high standards and quality of published proceedings as all MM conferences in this series.
Due to the global emergency of Coronavirus pandemic, we decide to postpone the regular paper submission deadline to 25 April 2020.
Welcome to the 28th ACM International Conference on Multimedia.
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.
Theme: Engaging Users with Multimedia
Theme: Multimedia Content Understanding
Theme: Multimedia Systems
