ACM Multimedia Conference is the premier conference for multimedia experts and practitioners across academia and industry. The 2016 edition will be held at the Theater Tuschinski in Amsterdam.
About the Multimedia HCI & QoE Area:
There is a growing evolution of media towards interactivity, which is prompted by the intrinsically interactive nature of devices used for media consumption, as well as progress in media content description that makes it amenable to direct access and manipulation. The same advances also provide a basis for capturing and understanding user experience.
This area follows on from related areas in previous editions of the conference, which have been dedicated to Human-Centered Multimedia, Media Interactions, or Multimedia HCI. The specific inclusion of Quality of Experience (QoE) recognizes the need for user studies to focus on the most specific aspects of media consumption.
