Short papers

The 13th Annual ACM International Conference on Multimedia (MM 2005) will be held in Singapore, November 06-11, 2005. ACM Multimedia is the premier technical multimedia conference attended by an international community of researchers from both academia and industry.
We are currently seeking outstanding short paper submissions that will be presented in an interactive poster format at the conference.

Short papers should present interesting recent results or novel thought-provoking ideas that are not quite ready for a regular full-length paper. We are looking for interesting and bold papers in all areas of multimedia technology and its application. Submissions are encouraged in areas including multimedia databases, content analysis, media processing, compression, multimedia storage, networking, multimedia and hypermedia authoring, multimedia user interfaces and innovative applications. Submissions will be peer-reviewed to ensure quality. Accepted short papers will be presented in an interactive poster format at the conference.
