Special Sessions

During the conference, four special sessions will be held. Special sessions are mini-venues, each focusing on one state-of-the-art research direction within the multimedia field. Special session papers, which can be invited or submitted, will supplement the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of MMM 2017. Some special sessions simply present a group of related papers in the regular format, while others are organized in a panel format, where authors have reduced time to present their work, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.   For more details, visit the individual pages:
