Multimedia 2004 invites your participation in the premier annual multimedia conference, covering all aspects of multimedia computing: from underlying technologies to applications, theory to practice, and servers to networks to devices.

The final program is available here.

The conference brochure, map, information, and schedule brochures are now available.

The keynote, best student paper, and the best paper sessions are available here.

Technical Program
The technical program will consist of plenary sessions and talks with topics of interest in:

Multimedia analysis, processing, and retrieval, including multimedia semantics, aesthetics, modeling, fusion, audio/video/multi-modal processing, multimedia content description and indexing, multimedia digital rights management (protection and attribution), content-based retrieval with emphasis on multiple and novel media.

Multimedia networking and system support, including context-aware multimedia communications, Internet telephony, peer-to-peer streaming, audio/video streaming, multimedia content distribution, wireless multimedia, adaptive support for scalable media, Internet protocols, multimedia servers, operating systems, middleware and QoS.

Multimedia tools, end-systems, and applications, including new UI metaphors, usable distributed collaboration, authoring, multi-modal interaction and integration, multimedia in e-learning, entertainment, personal media, assisted living, and virtual environments.

We particularly encourage submissions in new and emerging areas.

Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. In order to encourage sharing of implementations, this year will also initiate awards for best demo, best art exhibit, and the best contributed open-source software.

Panels will consist of discussions on timely and controversial topics.

Short papers will be presented in poster format and are an opportunity for researchers to present new work and ideas in an interactive setting.

State-of-the-Art Tutorials by leading experts will precede the technical program. The full- and half-day offerings will span a wide variety of topics.

Brave New Topics is a special sessions track containing papers, which extend the boundaries of multimedia research.

Technical Demonstrations will include leading edge work in every area of multimedia technology and its application. An award will be given to the best technical demo.

Interactive Art Program (Press release) will include tools for creating multimedia art, tools created by artists, and an Art Exhibition. Digital Boundaries: Multiculturalism, Identity, and Awareness: art works that, using multimedia, explore issues of cultural identity, cultural awareness, and the boundaries created or enforced through the use of multimedia technology.

Video Demonstrations allow researchers and artists to demonstrate their tool, system or application without having to bring the equipment for a "live" demo.

Day-long Workshops on topics of great current interest to members of the multimedia research community will precede the technical program.

The Doctoral Symposium is a venue for doctoral students to present their research and receive feedback from members of the multimedia research field.
