Regular Papers

The conference proceedings will be published as series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer. Regular and special session paper submissions will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind process. Selected regular papers will be invited to a special journal issue.

To submit to MMM 2023, please go to the MMM 2023 submission site. Description of the submission details are available in the Submission Guidelines.

Demo papers

MMM 2023 calls for Demonstration Papers reporting novel and compelling demonstrations of MMM related technologies, in all areas listed in the call for (full) papers.

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.

To submit to MMM 2023, please go to the MMM 2023 submission site. Description of the submission details are available in the Submission Guidelines.


Special session papers must follow the same guidelines as regular research papers with respect to restrictions on formatting, length, and double-blind reviews.

MDRE: Multimedia Datasets for Repeatable Experimentation
This special session focuses on sharing data and code to allow other researchers to replicate research results, with a long term goal of improving the performance of systems and the reproducibility of published papers.

ICDAR: Intelligent Cross-Data Analysis and Retrieval

This special session focuses on intelligent cross-data analytics and retrieval research and to bring a smart, sustainable society to human beings.

MACHU: Multimedia Analytics for Contextual Human Understanding

This special session focuses on contextual analysis of human activities, a key underlying challenge for many recommender systems and for personalised information retrieval systems.

SNL: Sport and Nutrition Lifelogging

This special sessions focuses on how we can bring nutrition and sport performance analysis closer together to improve certain aspects in people's lives such as training performance or even health

Workshop papers

Research2Biz: From Research to Prototype
This workshop focuses on opportunity to do research in a Universities - Industry Collaboration.

URA: Second International Workshop on Understanding Reading Activities
This workshop aims at bringing together academics and practitioners with an interest in the reading activity to define the state of the art and explore future research opportunities.

Video Browser Showdown

The Video Browser Showdown (VBS) is an annual live video search competition, where international researchers evaluate and demonstrate the efficiency of their exploratory video retrieval tools on a shared data set in front of the audience.

VBS has been organized as a special session MMM since 2012. In this special session, the participating teams start with a quick presentation of their video search systems and then perform several video retrieval tasks with a moderately large video collection.

It will be a moderated session where participants solve Known-Item Search (KIS) and Ad-Hoc Video Search (AVS) tasks that are issued as a live presentation of scenes of interest, either as a visual 20 seconds clip (randomly selected) or as a textual description. The goal is to find correct segments (for KIS exactly one segment, for AVS many segments) as fast as possible and submit the segment description (video id and frame number) to the VBS server, which evaluates if the found segment is correct.

Brave New Ideas

The Brave New Ideas (BNI) track of MMM 23 is calling for papers that suggest new opportunities and challenges in the general domain of multimedia analytics and modelling. A BNI paper is expected to stimulate activity towards addressing new, long term challenges of interest to the multimedia modelling community. The papers should address topics with a clear potential for high societal impact; authors should be able to argue that their proposal is important to solving problems, to supporting new perspectives, or to providing services that positively impact on people. Note that is not necessary that papers in this track have large-scale experimental results or comparisons to the state of the art, since it is expected that large, publicly available datasets may not be available, and there may be no existing approaches to which the proposed approach in the paper can be compared. BNI papers should be no longer than 6 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Please note the deadline of 8 October 2022 for BNI papers.
