The IEEE Transactions on Multimedia (TMM) Steering Committee has approved a special issue of TMM dedicated to ICME2011 to be published early 2012.
The ICME steering committee has approved ICME 2013 to be held in San Jose/Francisco, US, and ICME 2014 to be held in Chengdu, China. There were a total of five competing full proposals. Congratulations to the ICME2013 team and the ICME2014 team!
With around 1000 submissions and 500 participants each year, the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME) has been the flagship multimedia conference sponsored by four IEEE societies since 2000. It serves as a forum to promote the exchange of the latest advances in multimedia technologies, systems, and applications from both the research and development perspectives of the circuits and systems, communications, computer, and signal processing communities.
ICME was revamped in late 2009 in order to elevate it to the next level. A new charter and a new steering committee have been created. The main changes are summarized below:
- Lower the paper acceptance rate to 30% for the main conference (the top 15% for orals and the next 15% for posters).
- Increase the page length from 4 pages to up to 6 pages.
- Enforce individual sponsoring TCs' ownership of ICME. Each TC shall elect and appoint a TPC co-chair for the conference, and is directly responsible for the review of most papers in its areas.
- Enhance the role of the steering committee. Steering committee voting members shall be elected and appointed by individual TCs from the four sponsoring societies.
ICME is jointly sponsored and owned by the following four IEEE Technical Committees:
Multimedia Systems & Applications Technical Committee, Circuits and Systems Society
Multimedia Communications Technical Committee, Communications Society
Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing, Computer Society
Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee, Signal Processing Society
