The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Big Data (BigMM 2017)

The Hills Hotel, Laguna Hills, California, USA
April 19-21, 2017

Call for Papers

Jointly sponsored by the IEEE-TCMC (Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing), IEEE-TCSEM (Technical Committee on Semantic Computing), BigMM aims to establish a community of researchers from academia and industry focusing on the synergetic interactions between multimedia content and big data analytics. It is a world premier forum of leading researchers in the highly active multimedia big data research, development and applications.

Multimedia, as one of the most important and valuable sources for insights and information, is increasingly being considered as big data.” Multimedia big data includes but is not limited to text, image, graphics, audio, video, social, and sensor data that is highly valuable in decision making. It covers from everyone experiences to everything happening in the world. As such, multimedia big data is spurring on tremendous amount of research and development of related technologies and applications.

The conference solicits high-quality original research papers in any aspect of multimedia big data. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • New theory and models for multimedia computing
  • Ultra-high efficiency compression, coding and transmission of multimedia big data
  • Content analysis and data mining
  • Semantic retrieval
  • Deep learning and cloud computing
  • Green computing for multimedia big data (e.g., high efficiency storage)
  • Security and privacy in multimedia data
  • Interaction, access, visualization of multimedia data
  • Multimedia data systems
  • Novel and incentive applications of multimedia data in various fields (e.g., search, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, industry 4.0, transportation, and retail)

BigMM 2017 will showcase high quality oral and poster presentations as well as demonstration sessions. The review will be double blind and at least three reviewers are required. Best papers and demonstrations will be awarded at the conference. All papers in this conference will be included in the IEEExplore and indexed by EI. Authors of high quality papers will be invited to submit an extended version to International Journal of Multimedia Data Engineering and Management.


Authors are invited to submit regular papers (two-column 8 pages maximum), short papers (two-column 4 pages maximum), industry papers (two-column 4 pages maximum), and demonstration papers (two-column 2 pages maximum) to present novel theoretical and practical solutions addressing problems with multimedia big data and related applications. Detailed guidelines can be found at the BigMM 2017 website.

Manuscripts must be written in English. Your papers MUST be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines.

Only electronic submission will be accepted. Technical paper authors MUST submit their manuscripts through CMT. Please follow the link CMT FOR BigMM2017 (please register if not a CMT user).
