21st IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia Call for Papers


21st IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia

December 9-11, 2019
Wyndham San Diego Bay Side
San Diego, California, USA
Co-Located with IEEE AIVR 2019 (http://www.ieee-aivr.org)

Research in multimedia computing is generally concerned with
presentation, integration and computation of one or more media, such
as text, image, graphics, audio, video, social data, and data
collected from various sensors, etc., using computing techniques. The
21st IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2019) is the
flagship conference of IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia (TCMC)
and an international forum for researchers to exchange information
regarding advances in the state of the art and practice of multimedia
computing, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and
define the future of multimedia computing.
