ACM Multimedia is the premier international conference in the area of multimedia within the field of computer science. Multimedia research focuses on integration of the multiple perspectives offered by different digital modalities including images, text, video, music, sensor data, spoken audio.
Since 1993, ACM Multimedia has been bringing together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present innovative research results and discuss recent advancements. A special part of the conference is the interactive art program, which explores the boundaries of computer science and art.
The conference is structured around four themes (alphabetical): - Engaging users with multimedia - Multimedia experience - Multimedia systems - Understanding multimedia content
