Welcome to the 29th ACM International Conference on Multimedia.

Since the founding of ACM SIGMM in 1993, ACM Multimedia has been the worldwide premier conference and a key world event to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products in the multimedia field. For the first time in its history, ACM Multimedia 2021 will be held in Chengdu, the capital city of the Sichuan Province in China. At ACM Multimedia 2021, we will present an extensive program consisting of technical sessions covering all aspects of the multimedia field via oral, video and poster presentations, tutorials, panels, exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, doctoral symposium, multimedia grand challenge, brave new ideas on shaping the research landscape, open source software competition, and also an interactive arts program stimulating artists and computer scientists to meet and discover together the frontiers of artistic communication. We will also add the industrial track to recognize those research works with significant industrial values.

      Research Topics

      ACM Multimedia 2021 calls for research papers presenting novel theoretical and algorithmic solutions addressing problems across the domain of multimedia and related applications. The conference also calls for papers presenting novel, thought-provoking ideas and promising (preliminary) results in realizing these ideas. Submissions are invited in the following 4 themes containing 12 areas:

      Highlights of ACM Multimedia 2021

      • Scientific Diversity

        It is among our top priorities to ensure a top-quality conference that covers a full diversity of all fields of multimedia research including a variety of media modalities by addressing both technological and practical challenges.

      • Value

        We strive to select the most innovative and the highest-quality research aiming at the most impactful novelty on individual media and/or from a systematic perspective of innovating and integrating multiple components across modalities.

      • Sharing

        We value the sharing of not only knowledge (in the form of papers, presentations and demos) but also the code and open-source software. While we will continue the implementation of the ACM Artifact Review and Badging, best efforts will be made on sharing and preserving the open-source code and systems resulting from the published papers.
