Call for Video Program


ACM Multimedia 2016 Video Program is intended to allow researchers to demonstrate their research results without having to bring the equipment for a “live” demo. Videos should present innovative research results, such as merging augmented reality and real world entities, showing the results of surveillance video processing, the use of multiple cameras, camera arrays or video-sensor networks or communicate complex ideas through novel means and solutions, or creative applications or multimedia artistic productions in new contexts.

The scope of the research presented in the video should be relevant to any of the major research areas.
