ACM Multimedia Asia (MM Asia) is a newly established international conference to showcase the scientific achievements and industrial innovations in the multimedia field. MM Asia is organized by SIGMM China Chapter and sponsored by SIGMM. Its mission is to illuminate the state of the art in multimedia computing by bringing together researchers and practitioners in this field. It is essential to ensure that the conference includes sessions for presenting high-quality research papers and for sharing practitioner experience.
The targeted submission deadline would be middle of July (in coordination with ACM Multimedia and ACM ICMR), and opening date would be December or January.
As China has the largest multimedia community in Asia, we propose to rotate the locations in a 3-year window including Asian countries and Australia.
MM Asia conference will maintain the consistent review criteria (double-blinded review similar as ACMMM), consistent acceptance rate (usually around 30%), as well as international organizing and technical program committees.
SIGMM will officially sponsor the MM Asia Conference. SIGMM China Chapter will coordinate the conference organizations.
SIGMM China Chapter will prepare annual reports of the MM Asia conferences and submit to SIGMM Steering Committee for review. MM Asia is expected to maintain excellent paper quality, professional reputation and financial status. A major review and decision on whether to continue the sponsorship will be made after the 3rd year.
The steering committee will consist of experts in Asia and a few active and experienced researchers from SIGMM and Europe/America. The Steering Committee members will be re-elected with respect to the change of the corresponding positions or replaced by the selected general chairs of conferences in a window of around three years.
