In addition to full papers, ICMR 2017 is calling for short papers (4 pages) presenting significant and innovative research in multimedia retrieval and related fields. Papers should extend the state of the art by addressing new problems or proposing insightful solutions. The scope of the conference includes core topics in multimedia retrieval and recommendation, as well as the broader set of topics that must be addressed to ensure that multimedia retrieval technologies are of practical use in real-world use cases. Special emphasis is placed on topics related to large-scale indexing, user interaction, exploiting diverse and multimodal data, and domain-specific challenges.

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

  • Multimedia content-based search and retrieval
  • Multimedia-content-based (or hybrid) recommender systems
  • Large-scale and web-scale multimedia retrieval
  • Multimedia content extraction, analysis, and indexing
  • Multimedia analytics and knowledge discovery
  • Multimedia machine learning, deep learning, and neural nets
  • Relevance feedback, active learning, and transfer learning
  • Zero-shot learning and fine-grained retrieval for multimedia
  • Event-based indexing and multimedia understanding
  • Semantic descriptors and novel high- or mid-level features
  • Crowdsourcing, community contributions, and social multimedia
  • Multimedia retrieval leveraging quality, production cues, style, framing, affect
  • Narrative generation and narrative analysis
  • User intent and human perception in multimedia retrieval
  • Query processing and relevance feedback
  • Multimedia browsing, summarization, and visualization
  • Multimedia beyond video, including 3D data and sensor data
  • Mobile multimedia browsing and search
  • Multimedia analysis/search acceleration, e.g., GPU, FPGA
  • Benchmarks and evaluation methodologies for multimedia analysis/search
  • Applications of multimedia retrieval, e.g., medicine, sports, commerce, lifelogs, travel, security, environment.

Maximum Length of a Paper

Each short paper should not be longer than 4 pages.

Double-Blind Review

ICMR follows a double-blind review process for short paper selection. Authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the name(s) of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors:
- Do not put your names under the title
- Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors
- Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs)
- Check supplemental material (e.g., titles in the video clips, or supplementary documents) for information that may identify the authors identity
- Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Abstract and Keywords

The abstract and the keywords form the primary source for assigning papers to reviewers. So make sure that they form a concise and complete summary of your paper with sufficient information to let someone who doesn’t read the full paper know what it is about.
