Call For Papers

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 IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2015) is 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.

The technical program of ISM2015 will consist of invited talks (with 25+ high-profile Speakers: ), paper presentations, and panel discussions. Submissions are solicited for full papers and workshop papers.

Topics for submission include but are not limited to:

Systems and Architectures


Mobile systems and services

Pervasive and interactive media systems including mobile systems, pervasive gaming, and digital TV

Data in the Cloud
