Call for Video Demonstrations for The 12th Annual ACM International Conference on Multimedia (MM2004)

We'd like to encourage you to make a video for ACM Multimedia 2004. Video is a great way to present work that is best understood by example. Video also makes it possible to demonstrate your tool, system, application or brave new idea without having to bring the equipment for a "live" demo. Even if you've never made a video before, please consider this new opportunity for Video Submissions at ACM Multimedia 2004.

Video Submissions Categories and Format

There are three categories of video submissions:

Video figures (3 minutes) - accompanies a regular or short paper submission and serves as an illustration

Video demonstrations (8 minutes) - gives a self-explanatory demo of a tool, system, or application. In addition we would like to encourage media artists to submit work that exemplifies new trends in video art or describes an interactive multimedia art application.

Video vision (8 minutes) - describes a new brave idea of multimedia technology

Videos in the categories demonstration and vision need to be accompanied with a 2 page description of the video content using the ACM template. The descriptions of the selected videos will become part of the conference proceedings.

Videos will be published on a dedicated web site either in the ACM Digital Library or at the SIGMM website. Accepted videos will be presented in the video session during the conference. The best video demonstration and video vision will get a special podium.

The format for videos is MPEG-2, although we will accept VHS submissions. More information on video submissions can be found on the ACM Multimedia 2004 Web page

Submission Instructions

• Prepare video for review on a CD in MPEG-2 format (preferred) or on VHS tape
