ACM Multimedia Grand Challenges 17 May 2015
The Multimedia Grand Challenge was first presented as part of ACM Multimedia 2009 and has established itself as a prestigious competition in the multimedia community. ACM Multimedia 2015 will continue the tradition by repeating previous challenges and by introducing a new challenge. Industry leaders organize challenges which are meant to engage the Multimedia research community in solving relevant, interesting and challenging questions about the industry’s 3-5 year vision for important multimedia problems. The challenges provide a direct answer to the question of “What multimedia problems are important to society and industry?”
