Call for Special Sessions

ACM ICMR 2022 will include one or more Special Sessions on innovative and frontier topics in the field of multimedia retrieval. Special sessions differentiate from the regular sessions in the sense that they address very specific problems or very focused communities. They should attract the presentation of innovative contributions in the targeted narrow domain. The special session papers will appear in the ACM ICMR 2021 proceedings and will be presented at the conference in a dedicated oral session. A typical special session should target around 4-5 accepted papers.
