ACM Multimedia 2005 Interactive Art Program

6–12 Nov. 2005


Held in conjunction with the ACM Multimedia annual conference, the Interactive Art Program brings together the arts and multimedia communities to explore, discuss, and push the limits for the advancements of both multimedia technology through the arts and vice versa. The conference track will present technical papers describing interactive multimedia art, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative use of multimedia content and technology. The interactive art exhibition is titled "Presence/Absence," and will focus on issues of location, relocation, and dislocation—particularly where multimedia technology overcomes or reinforces physical presence or separation.

Calls for Papers

IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG)

TVCG is seeking original manuscripts for a special issue on visual analytics—the science of analytical reasoning supported by a highly interactive visual interface. Topics of interest for the special issue include sensemaking methods, perception and cognition, scalable data signatures through statistical and semantic approaches for information (text, imagery, video, and Web), and methods and tools for interoperability and synthesis.

The submission deadline is 28 Nov. 2005. To submit a paper, visit or contact Suzanne Werner at for more information.

IEEE Signal Processing magazine

The IEEE Signal Processing magazine is having a special issue on signal processing for wireless ad hoc communication networks. Wireless ad hoc networks require technological advances in broad fields, such as sensing and computing devices, signal processing, and networking protocols. Potential topics for this issue include the impact of signal processing on networking layers, signal processing for low-power ultrawideband transceivers or relays, space–time processing for wireless ad hoc networks, and the impact of source coding, sensing, localization, time delay, and synchronization on networking.

Manuscripts are due by 15 Dec. 2005. Submissions should be sent to

IEEE 2006 Int'l Conf. on Multimedia and Expo (ICME)

9–12 July 2006Toronto, Canada

ICME serves as a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art research, development, and implementations of multimedia systems, technologies, and applications. Topics include audio, image, and video processing; virtual reality and 3D imaging; signal processing for media integration; multimedia security and content protection; and hardware and software for multimedia systems.

Proposals for tutorials, special sessions, and demonstrations are due by 1 Dec. 2005. Papers are due by 31 Dec. 2005. Authors should submit a four-page manuscript in double-column format, including the authors' names, affiliations, and a short abstract. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
