ACM Multimedia 2004 is seeking to extend the boundaries of multimedia research presented at the conference through the introduction of its Brave New Topics Sessions. We solicit proposals for special sessions dealing either with topics not usually covered at ACM Multimedia or which introduce entirely new research areas. Example topics include but are not limited to: biomedical applications, multimodal biometrics, multimedia use experience, gaming, and pervasive computing.
The Brave New Topics session is being handled as a separate track at this year's conference. Since acceptance is likely to be highly selective, we encourage you to submit a short session proposal well in advance of the final submission dates. We can provide feedback on your proposal or help bring groups together in expanded sessions.
A total of four brave new topics sessions are being organized at ACM MM 2004
Final session proposals are due April 15, 2004. Sessions will nominally consist of three full papers. Session proposals should include a title, a one-page abstract describing the scope of the session, names and bios of the organizers, names of the participants, and abstracts for each of the proposed papers.
Submission should be sent to:
15 , 2004
