Panels will consist of discussions on timely and controversial topics.

Short papers will be presented in poster format and are an opportunity for researchers to present new work and ideas in an interactive setting.

State-of-the-Art Tutorials by leading experts will precede the technical program. The full- and half-day offerings will span a wide variety of topics.

Brave New Topics is a special sessions track containing papers, which extend the boundaries of multimedia research.

Technical Demonstrations will include leading edge work in every area of multimedia technology and its application. An award will be given to the best technical demo.

Interactive Art Program will include long and short papers describing interactive multimedia art works, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative uses of multimedia content and technology. It will also include an Art Exhibition on "Presence/Absence:" art works that use multimedia to explore issues of location, relocation and dislocation, particularly where multimedia technology overcomes or reinforces physical presence or separation.

Video Demonstrations allow researchers and artists to demonstrate their tool, system or application without having to bring the equipment for a "live" demo.

Day-long Workshops on topics of great current interest to members of the multimedia research community will precede the technical program.

The Doctoral Symposium is a venue for doctoral students to present their research and receive feedback from members of the multimedia research field.
