The IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME) has been the flagship multimedia conference sponsored by four IEEE societies since 2000. It serves as a forum to promote the exchange of the latest advances in multimedia technologies, systems, and applications from both the research and development perspectives of the circuits and systems, communications, computer, and signal processing communities. ICME also features an Exposition of multimedia products and prototypes.

ICME 2017 is the 18th ICME conference. The main theme of 2017 is "The New Media Experience", enabling next generation 3D/AR/VR experiences and applications, based on which various sessions and events, in particular a Grand Challenge, will be organized.
