ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval 2021

Taipei, Taiwan, July 12--15, 2021

ACM ICMR 2021 is calling for high quality original papers addressing
innovative research in multimedia retrieval and its related broad
fields. The main scope of the conference is not only search and

multimedia contents including community-contributed social data,
lifelogging data and automatically generated sensor data, integration
of diverse multimodal data, deep learning-based methodology and
practical multimedia applications.

We are seeking original high quality submissions addressing innovative
research in the field. Contributions addressing the challenges of
large-scale search and user behavior analysis are especially welcome.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

 - Multimedia content-based search and retrieval;
