CfP: new Crowdsourcing area at ACM Multimedia 2013

Crowdsourcing Area at ACM MM 2013
The 21st ACM International Conference on Multimedia
October 21–25, 2013, Barcelona Spain
Call for Papers:

Following the successful Crowd MM workshop at ACM Multimedia last year, we have added Crowdsourcing as an official technical program area (long and short papers) for ACM MM 2013 in Barcelona Spain.  Multimedia is the flagship conference for ACM SIGMM.


Crowdsourcing makes use of human intelligence and a large pool of contributors to address problems that are difficult to solve using conventional computation. This new area cross-cuts traditional multimedia topics and solicits submissions dedicated to results and novel ideas in multimedia that are made possible by the crowd, i.e., they exploit crowdsourcing principles and techniques. Crowdsourcing is considered to encompass the use of: microtask marketplaces, games-with-a-purpose, collective intelligence and human computation. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Exploiting crowdsourcing for multimedia generation, interpretation, sharing or retrieval
  • Learning from crowd-annotated or crowd-augmented multimedia data
  • Economics and incentive structures in multimedia crowdsourcing systems
  • Crowd-based design and evaluation of multimedia algorithms and systems
  • Crowdsourcing in multimedia systems and applications such as Art & Culture, Authoring, Collaboration, Mobile & Multi-device, Multimedia Analysis, Search, and Social Media.

Submissions should have both a clear focus on multimedia and also a critical dependency on crowdsourcing techniques.


Since the founding of ACM SIGMM in 1993, ACM Multimedia has been the worldwide premier conference and a key world event to display scientific achievements and innovative industrial products in the multimedia field. At ACM Multimedia 2013, we will celebrate its twenty-first iteration with an extensive program consisting of technical sessions covering all aspects of the multimedia field in forms of oral and poster presentations, tutorials, panels, exhibits, demonstrations and workshops, bringing into focus the principal subjects of investigation, competitions of research teams on challenging problems, and also an interactive art program stimulating artists and computer scientists to meet and discover together the frontiers of artistic communication.
