The panels at Multimedia 2004 will provide a forum venturous position statements and vivid debates of controversial, unresolved, or emerging issues related to all aspects of multimedia. Special focus will be set on the "multi" part of the "multimedia" with its specific challenges. With the panels we would like to stimulate discussions on challenges and research trends. The conference will host two panels, one each on the first and the second day of the conference.

The proposed panels could try to find opinions for the following:

  • Are we really filling the semantic gap in multimedia?

  • Smart, early metadata acquisition versus late, tedious media analysis?

  • Personalization of multimedia content beyond name recognition

  • Are we drowning in a vast amount of life media streams or do we learn to swim?

  • Multimedia digital rights management - between protection and constriction

  • New multimodal user interface metaphors - making multimedia data explorable and experiencable

Submission Instructions

The panel proposal (2-3 pages) should include:

  • panel title

  • panelists (name, position, affiliation, country)

  • panel topic (motivation, issues to be discussed)

  • panel structure (time needed, schedule of presentations and discussions)

  • proposers of the panel (name, position, affiliation, country)

Please e-mail your panel proposal not later than April 30, 2004 in PDF to the panels chair Susanne Boll (

Best panel proposals will be selected by the Panels chair supported by a Panel Selection Board comprised of members from the ACM MM 2004 Program Committee. Notification of acceptance is June 1, 2004. Panel outline (1 page) will be published in the conference proceedings and is due July 20, 2004.
