ICMR 2014 is seeking original high quality submissions addressing innovative research in the broad field of multimedia retrieval. We wish to highlight significant contributions addressing the main problem of search and retrieval but also the related and equally important issues of multimedia content management, user interaction, and community-based management. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Content- and context-based indexing, search and retrieval of images and video
- Multimedia content search and browsing on the Web
- Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for audio, image, video and 3D data
- Multimedia content analysis and understanding
- Semantic retrieval of visual content
- Learning and relevance feedback in media retrieval
- Query models, paradigms, and languages for multimedia retrieval
- Multimodal media search
- Human perception based multimedia retrieval
- Studies of information-seeking behavior among image/video users
- Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for image/video retrieval
- HCI issues in multimedia retrieval
- Evaluation of multimedia retrieval systems
- High performance multimedia indexing algorithms
- Community-based multimedia content management
- Applications of Multimedia Retrieval: Medicine, Multimodal Lifelogs, Satellite Imagery, etc.
- Image/video summarization and visualization
All papers should be prepared and submitted according to the following guidelines.
The ICMR uses a double-blind review process for regular paper selection. Authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the name(s) of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors.
- Do not put your name(s) under the title.
- Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors.
- Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs).
- Check supplemental material (e.g., titles in the video clips, or supplementary documents) for information that may identify the authors identity.
- Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.
Abstract and keywords
The abstract and the keywords form the primary source for assigning papers to reviewers. So make sure that they form a concise and complete summary of your paper with sufficient information to let someone who doesn’t read the full paper know what it is about .
Submissions should be made through the EasyChair conference website.
Maximum length of a paper
Each regular paper should not be longer than 8 pages.
By submitting a manuscript to ACM ICMR 2014, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either should be submitted during the ACM ICMR 2014 review period to either a journal or a conference.If there are papers that may appear to violate any of these conditions, then it is the authors’ responsibility to (1) cite these papers (preserving anonymity), (2) argue in the body of your paper why your paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material.2. Supplemental material
Authors may optionally upload supplemental material. Typically, this material might include:
- videos of results that cannot be included in the main paper,
- screen recording of the running program anonymized related submissions to other conferences and journals,
- and appendices or technical reports containing extended proofs and mathematical derivations that are not essential for understanding of the paper.
Only one supplemental file (10 MB Max.) is allowed. If there is a need to upload more than one file, please concatenate them into a single .ZIP file.
3. Registration and publication
At least one author of an accepted research paper will need to register for the conference according to normal conference registration policies, and attend the conference for technical presentation, for a paper to be included in the conference proceedings that will be published by ACM and ACM Digital Library. If there is no registration and presentation for a paper, it will be excluded from the conference proceedings as well as the ACM Digital Library. Conference registration information will be provided to the authors well in advance and will be posted on the conference web page at an appropriate time.
