The IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2014) is an international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding advances in the state of the art and practice of multimedia computing, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future of multimedia computing. The technical program of ISM2014 will consist of invited talks, paper presentations, and panel discussions. Submissions are solicited for full papers, short papers, workshop papers, technical demos, and panels.

Authors are invited to submit Regular Papers (8-page technical paper), Short Papers (4-page technical paper), Demonstration Papers and Posters (2 page technical paper), PhD Workshop Papers (2 pages), and Workshop Proposals as well as Industry Track Papers (4-page technical paper) which will be included in the proceedings. A main goal of this program is to present research work that exposes the academic and research communities to challenges and issues important for the industry. More information is available on the ISM2014 web page. The Conference Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be selected for publication in internationally renowned journals.
