The ACM TVX 2019 Conference on Interactive Experiences for Television and Online Video will be held on 5-7 June 2019 at Manchester’s MediaCityUK hub for technology innovation and creativity.
TVX is the leading international conference for presentation and discussion of research into online video and TV interaction and user experience. The conference brings together international researchers and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines, ranging from human-computer interaction, multimedia engineering and design to media studies, media psychology and sociology.
We invite authors to submit Long & Short Papers, Workshop Proposals, Demos, Work-in-Progress, TVX in Industry and Doctoral Consortium submissions. These can address various facets of TV, online video and other forms of video-centric media including (but not limited to): understanding what audiences want and how they engage with content; developing new content forms and formats, and video centric experiences; analysing and developing underlying technologies and systems; critiquing and developing production tools and workflows; developing new business models and marketing techniques; understanding wider social and cultural contexts; and showcasing avant-garde ideas and media art.
