Third IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data (BigMM 2017) Call for Papers

Third IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data (BigMM 2017)

The Hills Hotel, Laguna Hills, California, USA
April 19-21, 2017

Jointly sponsored by the IEEE-TCMC (Technical Committee on Multimedia
Computing), IEEE-TCSEM (Technical Committee on Semantic Computing),
BigMM aims to establish a community of researchers from academia and
industry focusing on the synergetic interactions between multimedia
content and big data analytics. It is a world's premier forum of
leading researchers in the highly active multimedia big data research,
development and applications.

Multimedia, as one of the most important and valuable sources for
insights and information, is increasingly being considered as ýbig
data." Multimedia big data includes but is not limited to text, image,
graphics, audio, video, social, and sensor data that is highly
valuable in decision making. It covers from everyone's experiences to
everything happening in the world. As such, multimedia big data is
spurring on tremendous amount of research and development of related
technologies and applications.

The conference solicits high-quality original research papers in any
aspect of multimedia big data. Topics include, but are not limited to:
´ New theory and models for multimedia computing
´ Ultra-high efficiency compression, coding and transmission of multimedia big data
´ Content analysis and data mining 
´ Semantic retrieval
´ Deep learning and cloud computing
´ Green computing for multimedia big data (e.g., high efficiency storage)
´ Security and privacy in multimedia data
´ Interaction, access, visualization of multimedia data
´ Multimedia systems
´ Novel and incentive applications of multimedia data in various
 fields (e.g., search, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing,
 industry 4.0, transportation, and retail)

BigMM 2017 will showcase high quality oral and poster presentations as
well as demonstration sessions. The review will be double blind and at
least three reviewers are required. Best papers and demonstrations
will be awarded at the conference. All papers in this conference will
be included in the IEEExplore and indexed by EI. Authors of high
quality papers will be invited to submit an extended version to
International Journal of Multimedia Data Engineering and Management.

Authors are invited to submit regular papers (two-column 8 pages
maximum), short papers (two-column 4 pages maximum), industry papers
(two-column 4 pages maximum), and demonstration papers (two-column 2
pages maximum) to present novel theoretical and practical solutions
addressing problems with multimedia big data and related
applications. Detailed guidelines can be found at the BigMM 2017
