Call For Papers


Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM) 2014

Dec. 1-4, 2014, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

The Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM) is the major annual
international conference in Asia organized as a forum for the dissemination
of state-of-the-art technological advances and research results in the fields
of theoretical, experimental, and applied multimedia analysis and processing.
The conference calls for research papers reporting original investigation
results and industrial-track papers reporting real-world multimedia applications
and system development experiences. The conference also solicits proposals for
tutorials on enabling multimedia technologies, and calls for dedicated special
session proposals focusing on emerging challenges in the multimedia arena.

PCM 2014 will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. Sarawak, also known as the
"Land of the Hornbills", offers an unforgettable mix of culture- and nature-based
travel experiences. Tourists can indulge themselves in a wide range of
attractions including enjoying the charms of historic Kuching, a beautiful
waterfront city; exploring the massive cave systems of Mulu National Park;
jungle trekking and wildlife watching at Bako National Park; traveling upriver
to visit the Iban and experience longhouse life.

PCM Workshop Co-Chairs are seeking for organizers of workshops at PCM 2014
and invite active members of the community to submit proposals. The selected
workshops should address specialized topics which are relevant for
researchers and practitioners working in the field of multimedia.
Emerging research themes that attract interest of the community are preferred.
Workshop proposals that include ideas to initiate lively discussions and
interactions are also welcome.

Submissions should be mailed to the Workshop Co-Chairs, including the
following details:
- Title

- Length – Full day or half day
- A draft workshop call for papers
- The names, affiliations, email addresses and short bio of the

- A list of potential Program Committee members and their affiliations
(submission should not exceed 4 pages, including CFP)

on these criteria: a) the likely interest of the workshop to PCM attendees,
b) originality, breadth and depth of the topic, c) the expertise and
credential of the organizer(s)

Special sessions supplement the regular program for PCM 2014. They are intended
to cover new and emerging topics in the fields of multimedia. Each special
session should provide an overview of the state of the arts and highlight
important research directions in a field of special interest to PCM
participants. It should be a focused effort rather than defined broadly.

Each special session should consist of at least 5 oral papers.
It is encouraged that the session begins with an overview paper on the topic
being addressed and that the remaining papers follow up with technical
contributions on the topic.

The following information should be included in the proposal:
- Title of the proposed special session
- Names and affiliations of the organizers (including bios and contact info)
- Session abstract
- List of authors committed to submit paper (including a tentative title
and a 300-word abstract for each paper)

The session abstract should answer the following three questions:
- Motivation: why is this topic important for organizing a special session
in PCM’14?
- Objective: who will be interested to submit papers?
- Target audience and key message: what can the attendees learn from this
special session?

This is a competitive call. Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness
of the topic and relevance to PCM, as well as the qualification of the
organizers and quality of papers in the proposed session.
