BigMM 2015 : IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data
Call For Papers
First IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data
April 20-22, 2015, Beijing, China
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Multimedia is increasingly becoming the "biggest big data" as the most important and valuable source for insights and information. 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 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data (BigMM), jointly sponsored by the IEEE-TCMC (Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing) and IEEE-TCSEM (Technical Committee on Semantic Computing), is a world's premier forum of leading scholars in the highly active multimedia big data research, development and applications. The first BigMM conference, with the theme "Multimedia: The Biggest Big Data", will be held in Beijing, China, from April 20 to 22, 2015, hosted by Peking University.
Please refer to the conference website for further information:
