Call For Papers
The Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM) is a major annual international conference organized as a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art technological advances and research results in the fields of theoretical, experimental, and applied multimedia analysis and processing. The conference calls for research papers reporting original investigation results and industrial-track papers reporting real-world multimedia applications and system development experiences. The conference also calls for special session proposals focusing on specific emerging challenges in the multimedia arena.

PCM2016 is the 17th conference of this highly successful and increasingly influential series. It will be held in Xian, which was the capital city of several most important dynasties in Chinese history such as Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui, and Tang, and has the richest cultural and historical heritages, including the world famous Terra Cotta, Big Goose Pagoda, Royal Familys Bathroom, etc.

September is one of the best seasons to visit Xi'an, because of its mild temperature, nice weather, and less polluted air during this time period. We sincerely invite you to submit papers to the conference, and look forward to meeting you in Xi'an.

PCM2016 is seeking high quality submissions in the broad field of multimedia. The topics of interests include, but are not limited to the following.

Multimedia analysis and retrieval: Including multimedia semantic understanding, modeling and representation, multi-modality fusion and analysis, multimedia content description and indexing, content-based image/video/audio/music retrieval, large-scale cross-media indexing and retrieval.

Multimedia security rights and management: Including robust watermarking of multimedia, authentication of multimedia, informational-theoretical aspects of data hiding, steganography and steganalysis, forensic analysis of digital multimedia, watermarking quality evaluations and benchmarks, content management.
