ICME 2016 Call For Submissions


IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) 2016

July 11-15, 2016 – Seattle, USA


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. The conference has a highly selective acceptance rate (15% for oral presentations and the next 15% for posters). In 2016, an Exposition of multimedia products, prototypes and animations will be held in conjunction with the conference.
