The Annual ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR) is a premier conference to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products in the field of multimedia retrieval. We offer a great opportunity for exchanging leading-edge multimedia retrieval ideas among researchers, practitioners and other potential users of multimedia retrieval systems.

ICMR 2018 is accepting proposals for technical demonstrators that will be showcased during the conference. The session will include demonstrations of latest innovations by research and engineering groups in industry, academia, and government. ICMR 2018 is seeking original high-quality submissions addressing innovative research in the broad field of multimedia retrieval. Contributions addressing the challenges of large-scale search and user behavior analysis are especially welcome.

Logistics at the Venue

Presenters of the technical demonstrators will be provided with a table, computer display, power outlet and wireless (shared) Internet to present their demos. Demo presenters are expected to bring with themselves everything else needed for their demo, such as hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc. However, if you have special requests such as other hardware accessories, a poster board, special requests for the allotted space, special lighting conditions and so on, we will do our best to arrange them. (an A0 poster board (841mm x 1189mm, portrait) is provided for each demo)
