Papers submitted to a special session or brave new ideas track are limited to six pages per paper, plus references. Doctoral symposium papers are limited to four pages in length. Topics of Interest ICMR 2019 is a premier conference to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products in the field of multimedia retrieval. We are seeking original high quality submissions addressing innovative research in the field. Contributions addressing the challenges of large-scale search and user behavior analysis are especially welcome.

Demo papers, are up to 4 pages, plus additional pages for the list of references. These type of papers will have demo and poster presentations at the conference. ICMR 2019 is a premier conference to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products in the field of multimedia retrieval. We are seeking original high quality submissions addressing innovative research in the field. Contributions related to any of the topics of interest mentioned above are welcome.

Special Sessions

ACM ICMR 2020 will include one or more Special Sessions on innovative and frontier topics in the field of multimedia computing and retrieval. Different from the regular sessions, special session should provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and highlight research directions in a field of special interest to ICMR participants. Each special session should be a focused effort rather than defined broadly, attracting the presentation of innovative contributions in the targeted narrow domain.

Each special session should target around 4-5 oral papers. The session organisers will be responsible for the selection of these papers. Special session papers, which can be invited or submitted, are limited to 6-8 pages. They will supplement the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of ICMR2020.

The following information should be included in the proposal:

    Title of the proposed special session Session abstract (stating the importance of the topic and the rationale for the session)
    Names and affiliations of the organisers (including brief bios and contact information)
    List of potential authors willing to submit paper (including a tentative title

Proposals will be evaluated based on topic appropriateness for ICMR, its relevance and potential impact in the targeted field, the experience of the organisers, the potential in attracting high quality submissions, and the overall quality of the written proposal.

Those who are interested in organising a special session should submit a proposal with the above requirements by email to the Special Session co-chairs, and all the papers in the special sessions should follow the same style as the regular ICMR2019 papers.
Call Deadline: 01 October 2019

Workshop Proposals

Workshop Proposal Call will be updated soon..
Call Deadline: 01 October 2019

Tutorial Proposals

ICMR tutorials aim to provide a comprehensive overview of specific topics in multimedia retrieval. The topic should be of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the course should be educational rather than a cursory survey of techniques; hands-on tutorials are highly welcome.

The audience for ICMR short courses and tutorials consists primarily of researchers, graduate students, and practitioners who are new to a particular area of multimedia retrieval. Although most courses are half-day offerings, we also invite proposals for full-day courses provided that the topic merits the additional time and can be anticipated to generate sufficient interest from our community.

The proposed tutorials are encouraged to be linked to the ICMR 2020 topics included in the general call for papers. Proposals should be submitted by email to the Chairs, either in plain-text or PDF format. Please include the following information:

    Short course/tutorial title.
    Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, and primary contact email.
    Short bio for each organizer.
    Preference for half- or full-day event.
    Course description that includes topics that will be covered, along with a brief outline and significant details.
    Pointers to relevant publications by organizers and relevant related work.
    Planned materials (if any) to be distributed to attendees.
    Information regarding whether the tutorial was presented elsewhere in the past, including venue, year, and attendance

Call Deadline: 01 October 2019

Doctoral Symposium Submissions

ICMR 2019 doctoral symposium plans to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics aligned with the topics of this year conference. For a full list of topics, see the main conference call for papers. The Ph.D. students of the accepted doctoral symposium papers coming at the conference to present solely their doctoral symposium paper will be entitled to a student registration fee for the entire conference.

Prospective student attendees should already have a clear direction for research, and possibly have published some results. Preference will be given to students who have advanced to Ph.D. candidacy.

Regarding the papers, each doctoral symposium paper should not be longer than 4 pages. ICMR will use a single-blind review process for doctoral symposium paper selection. Authors should provide author names and affiliations in their manuscript. Selections will be based on the submitted 4-page paper, singly authored by the student wishing to attend. Submissions will be reviewed by the doctoral symposium Committee (appointed by the doctoral Symposium Chairs). Accepted proposals will be published in the conference proceedings. Doctoral students who submit to the doctoral symposium are encouraged to submit a paper on their research to the main conference. However, acceptance for participation in the doctoral symposium will be based solely on the paper written ad-hoc for the event. All papers will be reviewed with respect to overall quality of presentation, potential for future impact of the research on the field and expected benefit to the other doctoral students attending the conference.

The submitted paper should include:

    Abstract and the keywords
    Motivation and problem description
    Background and related work (including key references)
    Novelty and significance relative to the state of the art
    Approach, data, methods and proposed experiments
    Results obtained and work in progress
    Specific research issues for discussion at the doctoral symposium.

In addition to the paper, the applicants are expected to provide a 1 page appendix that should describe the benefits that would be obtained by attending the doctoral symposium, including:

    A statement by the student saying why they want to attend the Symposium
    A statement by their advisor saying how the student would benefit by attending the Symposium
    Advisors should also specifically state whether the student has written, or is close to completing, a thesis proposal (or equivalent) and when they expect the student would defend their dissertation if they progress at a typical rate

The appendix should be uploaded as a separated file.
