Call for Video Demonstrations for The 13th Annual ACM International Conference on
We invite you to make a video for ACM Multimedia 2005. This forum is an ideal way
to demonstrate your tool, system, application or brave new idea without having to
bring the equipment for a "live" demo. Even if you have never made a video before,
we encourage you to consider this opportunity for Video Submissions at
ACM Multimedia 2005.
Video Submissions Category
There are three categories of video submissions:
- Video demonstrations (8 minutes) - gives a self-explanatory demo of
a tool, system, or application. In addition we would like to encourage
media artists to submit work that exemplifies new trends in video art
or describes an interactive multimedia art application.
- Video visions (8 minutes) - describes a new brave idea of multimedia
- Video figures (3 minutes) - accompanies a regular or short paper
submission and serves as an illustration.
Accepted video demonstrations and video visions are presented during
the video demonstration session, whereas video figures are presented
together with the paper during the allocated session.
Videos will be published on a dedicated web site at the SIGMM website
(see http://www.sigmm.org/apache/video2004/ - for previous years). The
best video demonstration and video vision will get a special podium.
Video Submissions Format
Videos in the categories demonstration and vision need to be
accompanied with a 2 page description of the video content using the
ACM template. The descriptions of the selected videos will become part
of the conference proceedings.
The format for videos is MPEG-2, although we will accept other digital
formats for the review process, such as MPEG1, MOV or AVI. Please note:
for the final video version MPEG-2 is obligatory.
