Call for brave new ideas papers

In this track we invite visionary papers exploring highly innovative ideas and/or paradigm shifts in conventional theory and practice of multimedia retrieval. Such papers may for example arise from solid mono-disciplinary completely new ways of thinking, interdisciplinary work bringing totally new perspectives on problems or solutions, involve unprecedented scales of data volume, or (strongly encouraged) involve combinations of information channels not pursued before. These papers may not be “complete” in the “traditional” manner in the sense that it may not be possible to have experimental results comparing other related efforts or that they may not have large, publicly available data sets to be used for performance comparison. However, we expect these papers to be visionary by nature.

Maximum Length of a Paper

A typical brave new idea paper is around 6 pages, but submissions may be up to 8 pages.
