Submission Guidelines

The conference accepts 5 types of contributions:

  • Regular papers, describing novel results in the conference research topics

  • Special session papers, describing novel results that are focused on selected narrow topics

  • Video Browser Showdown (VBS) papers for the video browsing contest attendees

  • Demo papers, giving an overview of new interesting software or methods

  • Brave New Ideas

All paper submissions must conform to the formatting instructions of Springer Verlag, LNCS series, and must strictly adhere to the submission schedule.

Each contribution (regular, special session, VBS, demo paper, etc.) must be associated with one full conference registration; only one contribution can be associated with each registration. Registered participants are expected to attend the conference.

Full Paper Submissions

Full paper submissions (Regular & Special Session papers) must not exceed 12 pages (all manuscript content, including figures, tables and references, must fit into the page limit).

Regular research paper submissions (including special session papers – except if explicitly stated otherwise in the call text for a specific special session) will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind review process; thus, the submissions need to be properly anonymized.

VBS & Demo Paper Submissions

VBS & Demo Paper submissions must not exceed 6 pages (including figures, tables, and references) and must conform to the same formatting instructions. VBS and Demo paper submissions need not be anonymized.

An additional 1-2 pages should be appended to your paper illustrating what will be shown at the demo session at MMM. This additional content will not be published in the conference proceedings, should the submission be accepted. We also recommend including a URL linking to a short video (max. 3 min) to accompany the paper that shows the demo in action.

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

Brave New Ideas Submissions

BNI papers should be no longer than 6 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed.

BNI submissions will be reviewed by conference chairs in a single-blind review process.
