Short Papers

In addition to full papers,  ICMR 2014 is inviting short paper submissions:   original contributions incorporating latest results, 4 pages long in ACM format,  addressing innovative research in the broad field of multimedia retrieval. We wish to incorporate  innovative 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, vide 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

Paper format
Short  papers must not exceed 4 pages in total. Papers must be formatted according to ACM guidelines and must be in PDF format. Papers exceeding the limits will be rejected without review.

Submissions should be made through the EasyChair conference website.

Submitted papers must describe unpublished original work, emphasising latest results or advanced research and any parallel submission to other venues should be clearly indicated to the program committee. Submissions are double-blind and will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.

Double-blind Review
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.
