Call for Papers

Download the CrowdMM15_CFP in pdf.The power of crowds – leveraging a large number of human contributors and the capabilities of human computation – has enormous potential to address key challenges in the area of multimedia research. Crowdsourcing offers a time- and resource-efficient method for collecting large volumes of input for system design and evaluation, making it possible to optimize multimedia systems more rapidly and to address human factors more effectively.At present, crowdsourcing remains notoriously difficult to exploit effectively in multimedia settings: the challenge arises from the fact that a community of users or workers is a complex and dynamic system highly sensitive to changes in the form and the parameterization of their activities.CrowdMM 2015 solicits novel contributions to multimedia research that make use of human intelligence, but also take advantage of human plurality.  We encourage theoretical, experimental, and methodological developments advancing state-of-the-art knowledge of crowdsourcing techniques for multimedia research. We encourage submissions that employ crowdsourcing, wisdom of the crowd, games with a purpose, or human computation in multimedia in the following areas of research (topics), and propose innovative solutions with respect to the following methodological challenges:Topics CFP

SUBMISSIONS
CrowdMM 2015  welcomes submissions of full papers, as well as short papers reporting work-in-progress. Full papers must be no longer than 6 pages (inclusive of all figures, references and appendices).  Short papers are 2 pages, and will be presented as Posters in an interactive setting. All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted according to the ACM Proceedings style.  They must contain no information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s). Reviews will be double-blind.  Papers will be judged on their relevance, technical content and correctness, and the clarity of presentation of the research.
Detailed of the submission procedures will soon be available on our website http://crowdmm.org.

PUBLICATIONS
Accepted full and short papers will appear in the ACM Multimedia 2015 Workshop Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
