Women in SIGMM - Lunch invitation

Call for Panel Proposals


ACM MM 2014 panels should be on the topics of current and increasing interest. The topic may be a controversial topic or a topic that has not yet received much attention, but is rapidly gaining importance. Recently, significant changes in multimedia research and development landscape have taken place in order to deal with e.g., cloud computing, social networking, massive user generated media data, learning-based multimedia systems, and media rich mobile applications.

It is expected that expert panelists will express their views on the topic of panel and discuss/debate with other panelists and the audience their views and experiences. The panels at ACM MM 2014 are not an avenue for panelists to present their own personal research or a narrow scope research project.

We welcome panel organizers from both academia and industry. We especially welcome new and emerging perspectives from multimedia related industrial corporations and researchers.

Call for Panel Proposals:

Proposals are solicited for panels that can be scheduled for 60 or 90 minutes in duration. The panel should schedule at least 20-30 minutes for interaction with the audience. Submissions should be made to the Panel Chairs and should include a cover sheet and an extended summary. The complete proposal should be limited to 6 pages and should include:

  • Panel topic and justification for such panel;
  • Complete contact information for the panel organizers;
  • (Potential) panelists and their expertise;
  • A brief biography for each organizer and panelist.
