ACM Multimedia 2022 calls for research papers presenting novel theoretical and algorithmic solutions to address problems across multimedia and related application fields. The conference also calls for papers presenting novel, thought-provoking ideas and promising (preliminary) results in realizing these ideas. Topics of interest include but are not limited to four major themes of multimedia: Engagement, Experience, Systems and Understanding.
> Theme: Engaging Users with Multimedia
The engagement of multimedia with society as a whole requires research that addresses how multimedia can be used to connect people with multimedia artifacts that meet their needs in a variety of contexts. The topic areas included under this theme include: - Emotional and Social Signals - Multimedia Search and Recommendation - Summarization, Analytics, and Storytelling
> Theme: Experience
One of the core tenants of our research community is that multimedia contributes to the user experience in a rich and meaningful manner. The topics organized under this theme are concerned with innovative uses of multimedia to enhance the user experience, how this experience is manifested in specific domains, and metrics for qualitatively and quantitatively measuring that experience in useful and meaningful ways. Specific topic areas addressed this year include: - Interactions and Quality of Experience - Art and Culture - Multimedia Applications
> Theme: Multimedia Systems
Research in multimedia systems is generally concerned with understanding fundamental tradeoffs between competing resource requirements, developing practical techniques and heuristics for realizing complex optimization and allocation strategies, and demonstrating innovative mechanisms and frameworks for building large-scale multimedia applications. Within this theme, we have focused on three target topic areas: - Systems and Middleware - Transport and Delivery - Data Systems Management and Indexing
> Theme: Understanding Multimedia Content
Multimedia data types by their very nature are complex and often involve intertwined instances of different kinds of information. We can leverage this multi-modal perspective in order to extract meaning and understanding of the world, often with surprising results. Specific topics addressed this year include: - Multimodal Fusion and Embeddings - Vision and Language - Media Interpretation
