ICMR2020 - Call for Special Sessions, Tutorials and Workshops

Dublin, Ireland, 8-11 June 2020

ACM ICMR 2020 is seeking expressions of interest from organisers of Special
Sessions, Workshops and Tutorials.  ACM ICMR is a core-B ranked
international conference that can expect to attract upwards of 200
attendees annually.

Special Sessions allow the organisers to host a topic-specific session at
the conference on innovative and frontier topics in the field of multimedia
retrieval. A special session should provide an overview of the
state-of-the-art and highlight research directions in a field of special
interest to ICMR participants. Special sessions can have a panel-like
format, with short presentations from authors, followed by a panel
discussion led by the special session chair. Each special session should be
a focused effort rather than defined broadly, attracting the presentation
of innovative contributions in the targeted narrow domain. Each special
session should target around 4-6 accepted oral papers. Special session
papers, which can be invited or submitted, should be 6-8 pages in length.
The session organisers will be responsible for the selection of these
papers, in collaboration with ICMR PC chairs. All special session papers
will be reviewed by members of the ICMR 2020 PC and included in the ACM
conference proceedings of ICMR 2020.

Workshops should be half-day or full-day events and should be topically
related to the topics of interest for ICMR, which are shown below.  The
purpose of workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas
and research results in a focused and more interactive way. Workshops are
encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to
a concrete outcome, such as the publication of a summary paper and/or
workshop proceedings. The information required for a workshop proposal is
on the conference website. A summary paper of the workshop will be
published in the conference proceedings and the workshop papers will be
published in the workshop proceedings of ACM ICMR 2020.

Tutorials inform the community on recent advances on core research topics,
or novel application areas related to the topics of interest for ICMR,
which are shown below. They may focus on specific problems or specific
domains in which multimedia retrieval methods may be applied. Tutorial
length can be either a half-day or a full day. Tutorials are encouraged to
be as interactive as possible. A summary of the tutorial will be published
in the conference proceedings.

The following information should be included in any proposal:


   Title of the proposed special session, workshop or tutorial

   Abstract (stating the importance of the topic and the rationale for the

   Names and affiliations of the organisers (including brief bios and
   contact information)

   List of potential authors willing to submit paper (including a tentative
   title) for workshops and special sessions

   Overview of topics to be presented if the submission is for a tutorial
   and a review of the expected learning outcomes for participants

   Workshop goals/objectives coupled with desired outcomes

   Format/structure of the session, workshop or tutorial: planned
   activities, tentative schedule of events etc.

   Indicate if the session, workshop or tutorial is related to or follows
   on from a previous activity; if so, please identify which conference it was
   previously held at, the past attendance and outcomes, and why another
   activity is needed

Proposals will be evaluated based on topic appropriateness for ICMR, its
relevance and potential impact in the targeted field, the experience of the
organisers, the potential in attracting high quality submissions, and the
overall quality of the written proposal.

Those who are interested in organising a special session, workshop or
tutorial should submit a proposal in PDF with the above requirements by
email to the session co-chairs (sessionchairs at icmr2020.org). All papers in
the special sessions or workshops should follow the same style as the
regular ICMR2020 papers.

Call Deadline: 1 October 2019
