ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications (TOMM)
Call For Papers

The ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications is the flagship publication of the ACM Special Interest Group in Multimedia (SIGMM). It is soliciting paper submissions on all aspects of multimedia. Papers on single media (for instance, audio, video, animation) and their processing are also welcome.

TOMM is a peer-reviewed, archival journal, available in both print form and digital form. The Journal is published quarterly; with roughly 7 23-page articles in each issue. In addition, all Special Issues are published online-only to ensure a timely publication. The transactions consists primarily of research papers. This is an archival journal and it is intended that the papers will have lasting importance and value over time. In general, papers whose primary focus is on particular multimedia products or the current state of the industry will not be included.


The journal covers publications in the three general subfields of multimedia computing, communications, and applications, each consisting of various areas of research. Note that this is not an exclusive list: other topics in these fields (computing, communications, applications) are also accepted.
