Call for Workshops

August 13, 2016

IEEE ICME 2017 will be held in Hong Kong. The conference will host a number of workshops on 10 July and 14 July 2017. The goal of workshops is to explore current and emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. The workshops will focus on topics relevant to multimedia and can trigger lively discussions among participants.  The topics should bridge the community with other areas, and differ from the main topics covered in the conference yet attract fellow members of the community. Emerging research themes with wide interest to researchers and practitioners of the multimedia community will be favored. The workshop organizers will handle the review process. The accepted papers (of length up to 6 pages) will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore.

We invite members of community to submit workshop proposals. Submission should include the following details:

  • Title
  • Abstract
  • Topics of interest
  • Relevance and significance of this workshop to ICME, including
    • How the workshop is related to ICME
    • How the workshop is different from the topics in ICME main conference
    • Why the topic is current and important
