PhD student showcase

The ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval will hold a PhD student showcase event that will be held in parallel with the main conference and aims at providing a forum to PhD students to present a recent, ongoing work and get feedback from their peers and senior researchers in an informal and friendly setting. The event provides an excellent opportunity for PhD students early in their career to get an experience in presenting the work to an outside audience.

Submissions should be made through the EasyChair conference website.
Applicants should submit a 4-page paper describing the research. The  paper should be in the format of a conference paper and would typically include:

  • Title. The title should start with the words: PhD Showcase submission. See example below

PhD Showcase submission: My wonderful paper

  • Abstract
  • Motivation and problem description
  • Novelty and significance of the contribution
  • Proposed method
  • Results and work in progress
  • Discussion

The submission should include an 1-page attachment from the applicant’s supervisor confirming that the applicant is a PhD student and stating that they support their application.

Submissions must be written in English and submitted in the ACM Conference style (for LaTeX, use the “Option 2″ style). The paper should be no more than 4 pages in length including all figures and references. The first page must contain the title of the paper, full author name, affiliation and contact details, an abstract of up to 250 words, ACM Computing Reviews categories, and up to 3 keywords describing the topic areas. Information about categories and keywords can be found in the ACM Web pages on the computing classification system and in the LaTeX and Word templates.

Review Process and Publication

All submissions will be reviewed by the members of the committee and will be judged with respect to their novelty, significance, potential for future impact of the research on the field and the quality of the presentation.

The 4-page submission will be published in a separate section in an electronic proceedings and will be distributed at the conference.

Student authors are expected to present their work in the conference in two parallel sessions during the conference. Only selected senior researchers and students attend these sessions with the sole aim to give friendly constructive feedback to the students.
