Call for Video Demos

The 15th Annual ACM International Conference on Multimedia (ACM MM 2007) will be held in Augsburg, September 23-29, 2007. ACM Multimedia is the premier technical multimedia conference attended by an international community of researchers from both academia and industry.

Most of the ideas we get to know at the ACM MM deal with analyzing and using domains and documents consisting of different kinds of media and modalities. Yet, we present most of them in paper-form. So let's practice what we preach and consider presenting your idea as a self-made video of up to 8 minutes in MPEG format. The video must be in the following format:

  • MPEG-2, yuv420p, 720x480, about 4000 kb/s, 29.97 fps with
  • audio in MP2, 48 kHz, stereo, 384 kb/s

We encourage authors to submit videos

  • showing creative applications or MM-arts in new contexts
  • merging augmented reality and real world entities
  • showing the use of multiple cameras, camera-arrays or video-sensor networks

At the presentation, the principal author should introduce the audience shortly to the presented idea. The actual display of the videos will be prepared by the committee.

The author is encouraged to submit her contribution digitally. Therefore, please make the submission available for download under a stable URL. In order not to run into technical difficulties we strongly recommend to submit 1-2 days prior to the actual deadline. Sending a storage medium via traditional mail is another option. The date of the postmark will count as date of submission.

The accompanying paper using the same style-sheet as regular papers of the ACM MM should be sent to

or in case of snail mail to the

    University of Mannheim
    Dr. Thomas Haenselmann
    LS PI IV
    A5, 6
    68159 Mannheim

Prepare an informal cover sheet with title, authors (indicate principal author), affiliations, address, and primary contact or include this information in your e-mail when submitting digitally. Authors of accepted submissions will be required to sign copyright to ACM. Do not attach a video-file to your mail but provide an URL for download.
