Now in its 23rd year, MMM is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners for sharing new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all MMM related areas. The conference calls for research papers reporting original investigation results and demonstrations in all areas related to multimedia modeling technologies and applications. Special sessions will also be held that focus on addressing new challenges for the multimedia community.
There will be two main social events at MMM 2017: a welcome reception featuring the Video Browser Showdown, on January 4 at Reykjavik University, and the conference banquet which will take place at the exotic Blue Lagoon on the evening of January 5. Optional tours allow participants to further enjoy their stay on the beautiful island.
We sincerely hope that the carefully crafted program that we will put together, the scientific discussions that the conference will stimulate, and your additional activities in Reykjavík and its surroundings, will make participation in MMM 2017 a valuable and a memorable experience.
On behalf of the conference organizers and our hosts at Reykjavik University, we sincerely welcome you to MMM 2017.
Björn Þór Jónsson and Cathal Gurrin, co-chairs
