Call fOR SPECIAL SESSIONS

Special sessions at MMM 2023 will focus on state-of-the-art research directions within the multimedia field. Special session papers, which can be invited or submitted, will supplement the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of the conference. It is recommended that special sessions should be organized in a panel format, where the authors have reduced time to present their work, followed by an extensive Q&A session with the audience. This has been shown to work well in recent editions of MMM. The panel format is a general guideline rather than a strict requirement. If a proposal envisages a potential for a large number of submissions, or if particular value may be provided by the additional discussions that could come with the format of longer workshop activities, we are open to such a submission and would negotiate it further.


Special Session Requirements

Normally, each special session will include four to five papers. In addition to invited papers, if any, the conference will also welcome open submissions to special sessions. In order to ensure the high quality of the papers, all papers submitted to special sessions, including invited papers, will be peer-reviewed through a strict review process. If a special session has many high-quality submissions, some of the submissions might be moved to regular sessions. Formatting of special session papers must follow the same guidelines as regular research papers. The review process will be coordinated with the main technical program review process of the MMM, as coordinated by the TPC chairs. The organisers of each special session must provide 1-2 reviews per submitted / invited paper, while the regular program committee will provide another 1-2 reviews. Final decision on acceptance / rejection will be made jointly by the special session chairs and the MMM 2023 TPC chairs.

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

Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Title of the proposed special session.

  • Name, affiliation, brief biography and contact information for each of the organisers.

  • A session abstract including significance justification and a brief overview of the state-of-the-art of the proposed special session topic.

  • List of invited papers, if applicable, including for each paper: tentative title, author list, and preferably a short abstract.

  • Proposal for arrangement of the reviews from session organisers (e.g. list of reviewers for the special session).

  • Description of the session format (e.g. panel, technical talks, poster session).

  • Plans for advertising the special session (e.g. targeted distribution lists, projects, communities)

  • If applicable, plans for exploitation of the results of the session (e.g. summary papers)

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and relevance to MMM, anticipated quality of papers in the proposed session and the other information from the list above provided by the organisers.


Special Session Proposal Submission

Please submit proposals containing the information from above by email to the Community Direction chairs (mmm2023-communitychairs@googlegroups.com) using subject “MMM2023 Special Session Proposal” by June 1, 2022 Receipt of a proposal will be confirmed by the chairs. Proposals will be evaluated based on the relevance to MMM, qualification(s) of the organizer(s), and the quality and community interest of the topic and proposed invited papers.


CALL FOR Workshops

MMM welcomes associated workshops that are topically relevant to MMM 2023. Workshops should be half-day or full-day events and should be topically related to the topics of interest for MMM. The purpose of workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and research results in a focused and more interactive way. Workshops are encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to a concrete outcome, such as the publication of a summary paper and/or workshop proceedings. The workshop organizers are responsible for organizing the review process for papers submitted to the workshop. We recommend that formatting of the workshop papers should follow the same guidelines as regular research papers.

Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Title of the proposed workshop.

  • Name, affiliation, brief biography and contact information for each of the organisers.

  • A workshop abstract including significance justification and a brief overview of the state-of-the-art of the proposed workshop topic.

  • Proposal for arrangement of the workshop and requirements for hosting an in-person workshop.

  • If applicable, plans for exploitation of the results of the workshop (e.g. summary papers)

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and relevance to MMM, and the other information from the list above provided by the organisers.

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.

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