Technical Demos and Videos Program

ACM Multimedia is the premier international conference in the area of multimedia within the field of computer science. Multimedia research focuses on technologies that enable the use and exchange of content integrating the multiple perspectives of different digital modalities, including images, text, video, audio, speech, music, and sensor data.

As in previous years, ACM Multimedia will provide demonstration and video sessions. Demos and videos are intended as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of providing multimedia researchers and practitioners with the opportunity to discuss working multimedia systems, applications, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts. Such a setting allows conference attendants to view and interact first hand with live evidence of innovative solutions and ideas in the field of multimedia and to see leading edge research at work.

Expected Contents

Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia, as described in ACM MM 2019 general call for papers: https://www.acmmm.org/call-for-papers/

Facilities

Once accepted, demonstrators and video presenters will be provided with a table, poster board, power outlet and wireless (shared) Internet. Demo and video presenters are expected to bring with themselves everything else needed for their demo and video presentations, such as hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc. However if you have special requests such as a larger space, special lighting conditions and so on, we will do our best to arrange them.

Important note for the authors: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work

Submission Guidelines

The documents should be submitted through the submission system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acmmm2019

All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and the demos or videos will be selected through a jury process. Please submit a two pages demo/video proposals (excluding references) using the ACM Article Template. Please remember to add Concepts and Keywordshttps://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template

Please note that the submission is NOT blind. Also each demo/video submission must contain a supplementary file, either in PowerPoint format (no more than 10 slides) or in video (no longer than 3 minutes) explaining to the jury:

  • What is the scientific or engineering concept behind the work?
  • What is the novelty of the work and how is the work different from existing systems or techniques?
  • What will be actually shown during the demo?

In addition, a PDF file of one page description about your demo booth configuration may be provided if you have special requests. Please note that the submission system can accept only one supplementary file (Max 10MB). Therefore you have to compress multiple files into one ZIP file for submitting the supplementary materials. If the total size of your supplementary materials exceeds 10MB, please contact the demo chairs and arrange a way to submit the file.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: May 20, 2019
Notification of acceptance: July 8, 2019
Camera-ready submission: August 3, 2019
