We seek contributions that call to explore innovative and paradigm shifts in conventional theory and practice of multimedia techniques and applications. We seek to draw attention to methods that differ from the state of art in practice or theory and demonstrate potential for changed ways of thinking. Such papers may arise out of interdisciplinary work, and may involve cross-disciplinary inputs.
Papers may fall in this high risk category if:
a) The ideas and theory are strong, but the experimentation maybe preliminary. However, sufficient evidence t that the approach is promising must be provided.
b) New applications that explore how multimedia can impact society. These may be high risk because the new theory may be minimal. To qualify the application must demonstrate potential for societal good.
There is no separate submission process. The selection committee will identify the high-risk papers from the papers submitted to the main conference, including the long paper and the short paper tracks, across all conference areas.
