There will be a few special sessions at the conference. They were selected from submitted session proposals via a peer-review process.
More details are in the conference program.
ACM SIGMM International Conference on Multimedia Information Retrieval (MIR) 2010 will include special sessions for emerging frontier theories or applications in the program. Work included in the special sessions is expected to represent the state-of-the-art and high-impact research directions in multimedia information retrieval.
Each special session will contain 4 - 6 invited papers. The session organizer(s) will be responsible for the selection of these papers. The session may begin with an overview paper on the topic being addressed and then be followed by the papers with specific technical contributions on the topic.
The following information should be included in the session proposal:
Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and relevance to MIR, as well as the qualifications of the organizers and quality of the paper abstracts in the proposed session.
The organizers of an accepted special session will be responsible for ensuring the quality of the final papers included in the session as these papers would not otherwise receive peer reviews.
