Dublin, Ireland, 26-30th October 2020
Updated 10 September 2020. Due to the ongoing disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers of ICMR’20, after consultation with the ICMR Steering Committee and SIGMM officers, have decided to hold the ICMR'20 conference as a fully virtual event. We have engaged the services of a conference management company to assist in the smooth running of the conference. We expect that all talks will be pre-recorded and that authors are available at their scheduled talk times to answer questions from attendees. There will be numerous opportunities in the conference schedule for online social interactions and there will be two main online social events (Welcome reception and Irish Food & Drink Session). We will also return any unused registration income to registered attendees after the event. We had very much hoped to welcome you to Ireland in October and it is with great regret that we eventually make this announcement.
Effectively and efficiently retrieving information based on user needs is one of the most exciting areas in multimedia research. The Annual ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR) offers a great opportunity for exchanging leading-edge multimedia retrieval ideas among researchers, practitioners and other potential users of multimedia retrieval systems. ACM ICMR 2020 will take place in Dublin, Ireland from the 8-11th June 2020. The conference venue is the Radisson Blu Hotel, in Dublin city centre. Check out the ICMR2020 introduction slides as presented at the ICMR2019 banquet on 12th June 2019.
ACM ICMR was created in 2011 from the merger of the ACM CIVR (International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval) and ACM MIR (International Conference on Multimedia Information Retrieval). ACM ICMR serves to illuminate the state of the art in multimedia (e.g., text, image, video, audio, sensor data, 3D) retrieval. ICMR 2020 in Dublin follows the successful previous editions of ICMR in Trento, Italy 2011; Hong Kong, China 2012; Dallas, USA 2013; Glasgow, UK 2014; Shanghai, China 2015; New York, USA 2016; Bucharest, Romania 2017; Yokohama, Japan 2018 and Ottawa, Canada 2019.
ACM ICMR 2020 is calling for submissions 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, mixed reality user interaction, exploiting diverse and multimodal data, and domain-specific challenges. Authors of the best papers will be asked to extend their work for a Special Issue in Springer's International Journal of Multimedia Information Retrieval
Commencing in 2020, SIGMM will centralise SIGMM support for student travel to SIGMM events. As a result, SIGMM will provide funding support for all students who are first authors of full/special session papers at ICMR 2020 and look favourably on other requests from student first authors.
