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. Multimedia data generally refer to audio, image, video, 3D, newer sensor data (e.g. depth) and related multi-modality data. In 2014, an Exposition of multimedia products, prototypes and animations will be held in conjunction with the conference.

Authors are invited to submit a full paper (two-column format, 6 pages maximum) according to the guidelines available on the conference website at http://www.icme2014.org<http://www.icme2014.org/> . Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

o Multimedia content analysis
o Multimedia activity and event understanding
o Multimedia search and retrieval
