ACM Multimedia 2010

is the worldwide premier multimedia conference and a key event to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products. ACM Multimedia 2010 offers to scientists and practitioners in the area of Multimedia plenary scientific and technical sessions – with keynote speeches, oral, poster and video presentations, technical demonstrations and exhibits -, opportunities for deepenings – organized as discussion rooms, symposiums and tutorials and panels with worldwide recognized scientists and opinion leaders -, and competitions of research teams on relevant and challenging questions about the industry’s two-five years horizon for multimedia. As a companion event, the Interactive Art program will provide the opportunity of interaction between artists and computer scientists and investigation on the application of multimedia technologies to art and cultural heritage. Workshops associated to ACM Multimedia 2010 will provide in-focus forums of discussion on some of the most relevant and timely scientific topics in the field.

In more detail the complete program of ACM Multimedia 2010 will include:

Scientific presentations

  • Full Paper and Short Paper program: including oral and poster presentations selected according to the ACM Multimedia policy and organized in four distinct tracks: Multimedia Content Analysis, Multimedia Systems, Multimedia Interaction, Multimedia Applications.
  • Brave New Ideas program: implemented as a special sessions track containing papers extending the boundaries of multimedia research and eventually opening new lines of research development.
  • Video program: implemented as a special session track of video displays where researchers can demonstrate their systems or applications without having to bring the equipment for a “live” demo.

Interactive Art program

  • Interactive Art program: implemented as a special session track of multimedia art exhibition, and of applications, and technical solutions for cultural heritage.


  • Open Source Software Competition: aimed at emphasizing the impact the ACM Multimedia conference on software development and practice.
  • Multimedia Grand Challenge: presenting challenges from industry leaders, geared to engage the multimedia research community in solving relevant questions about the industry’s 2-5 year horizon. For more informations see the Multimedia Grand Challenge 2010 web site

In-depth courses and discussions
