Call for Panel Proposals

ACM Multimedia is the premier international conference in the area of multimedia within the field of computer science. Multimedia research focuses on technologies that enable the use and exchange of content integrating the multiple perspectives of different digital modalities, including haptics, smell, AR/VR, images, text, video, audio, speech, music, and sensor data.

To promote a constructive discussion on the ever-growing area of multimedia research, ACM MM 2023 panels are expected to focus on topics of current interest. Preferably, the topic of panel discussion should be controversial, or a topic that has not yet received much attention but is rapidly gaining importance. Recently, significant changes in multimedia research, development, and application landscape have taken place in order to deal with a multitude of contemporary technologies and applications, including emerging technologies, cloud computing, social networking, interactive and immersive experiences, personal multimedia, massive user generated media data, learning-based multimedia systems, and media rich mobile applications.

We are inviting newcomers, as well as seasoned multimedia researchers to propose panel discussions for ACM MM 2023. We welcome panel organizers from both academia and industry. New and emerging perspectives from multimedia-related industrial corporations and researchers are particularly welcome.

We look forward to receiving high quality proposals from the multimedia community. Expert panelists are expected to share their views and experiences on the topic of the panel and discuss them with other panelists and the audience. The composition of panels should be diverse, representing a broad range of backgrounds and perspectives. Note that the panels at ACM MM 2023 are not intended as an avenue for panelists to present their own personal research or a narrow-scope research project.
