Call for Video Program

(Submission closed)

ACM Multimedia 2012 Video Program is intended to allow researchers and video producers to demonstrate their research results or video productions without having to bring the equipment for a “live” demo. Videos should present innovative research results, like for example merging augmented reality and real world entities, showing the use of multiple cameras, camera-arrays or video-sensor networks or communicate complex ideas through novel means and solutions or showing creative applications or MM-arts in new contexts.
The scope of the research presented in the video should be relevant to any of the four major technical tracks; video productions can also be of interest of the arts track.

Expected Contents
The maximum length allowed for Video papers is 4 pages. At the presentation, the principal author should introduce the audience shortly to the presented idea. The actual display for showing the videos will be prepared by the committee.

  • The videos can range in duration between 3 minutes to 8 minutes.
  • The minimum spatial resolution is 320*240 pixels per frame.
  • Videos should be submitted at a minimum of 15fps.
  • The videos should be in a standard archival format, such as MOV, MPEG2 and H.264.
