Call for Brave New Idea Papers

(Submission closed)

Brave New Ideas should address long term research challenges, point to new research directions, or provide new insights or brave perspectives that pave the way to innovation.

We thus seek contributions that explore innovative and paradigm shifts in conventional theory and practice of multimedia techniques and applications. We also seek to draw attention to methods that differ from the state of art in practice or theory and demonstrate the potential for new ways of thinking. Such papers may arise out of inter-disciplinary work, and may involve cross-disciplinary inputs.

Submission Guidelines
The papers may come from two sources. We expect most papers to come from direct submissions in the “Brave New Idea Program”. These papers will be reviewed in two stages: Abstracts will be first filtered by the Brave New Ideas Program Chairs, then selected papers (up to 10 pages) will undergo a full review plus discussion with the Chairs. Please submit 2-page abstracts in standard ACM MM 2012 format, with the exception that the papers need not be blind.
Meanwhile, at the discretion of the Program Chairs, submissions to regular full paper track may be recommended to the “Brave New Ideas Program” Committee for considerations to be included in the program.
