[ecrea] AltMM2018- Multimedia Alternate Realities Workshop
Thu May 24 13:15:59 GMT 2018
*Call for Paper**s*
*AltMM 2018 | Multimedia Alternate Realities***
/International Workshop held at ACM Multimedia 2018 - October 22-26,
2018, Seoul, Kore//a/
Multimedia experiences allow us to access other worlds, to live other
people's stories, to communicate with or experience alternate realities.
Different spaces, times or situations can be entered thanks to
multimedia contents and systems, which coexist with our current reality,
and are sometimes so vivid and engaging that we feel we are living in
them. Advances in multimedia are making it possible to create immersive
experiences that may involve the user in a different or augmented world,
as an alternate reality.
The 3rd edition of AltMM workshop aims at exploring how the synergy
between multimedia technologies can foster the creation of /alternate
realitie//s/ and make their access an enriching and valuable experience.
We seek contributions that present multimedia technologies, methods and
measurement approaches from the perspective of “enabling other realities”.
In particular, prospective contributions must address one or more of the
following *dimensions***when characterizing the type of multimedia
alternate reality that they are aiming for:
* *Alternat**e* ‐ refers to what is alternate about it: different
space, time, situation, and so on;
* *Virtual/Augmented***‐ how far or close to the actual reality
content can be experienced, ranging from totally virtual to
augmented reality (VR/AR);
* *Real/Fictiona**l* ‐ how real or fictional the content is;
* *Interactive***‐ the level of interactivity as a means of engagement
* *Immersiv**e* ‐ level in perceptual, cognitive and emotional terms,
the sense of presence and belonging, the quality of the content and
the experience, imagination and engagement;
* *Multisensoria**l* ‐ the media involved and how much mulsemedia it
is, also going beyond audiovisual content to include the five senses;
* *Personal***‐ adaptation to individual preferences and contexts;
* *Social***‐ individualized vs shared experiences and communication.
Contributions should aim at enabling alternate realities experiences
through multimedia technologies, design and evaluation methods for their
creation and consumption. This involves the use of different types of
media content (audiovisual, haptics, smell, and taste), increased
immersion (e.g., 3D, holographic, UHD, 360°, and stereoscopic audio),
new interaction devices, environments, modalities, and formats.
*Topic**s* of interest include but are not limited to:
*Creation and Consumption of Alternate Realitie**s*
* capturing and sensing
* content production and authoring, interactive storytelling, digital
narratives, cinema and TV
* crowdsourcing and co‐creation
* delivery, rendering, and consumption paradigms, co‐experience and
* personalization, post‐processing, enhancement and real‐time adaptation
*Design and Evaluation of Alternate Realities Experienc**e*
* assessment and prediction of engagement, immersion and flow
* experience evaluation through analysis of quantitative (e.g.
physiological data, self reports) and qualitative data (e.g.
observations, in-depth interviews)
* measurements and metrics to quantify the quality of alternate
* field trial reports and user studies
*Alternate Realities Application**s*
* from more traditional to innovative applications, e.g. based on
multi‐device and multisensory shared content consumption, in
asynchronous or live scenarios
* in domains like personal media, culture, tourism, art, education,
entertainment, manufacturing, training, health and wellbeing, etc.
The full day workshop program will contain a combination of oral and
invited keynote presentations, posters and demos, altogether enabling
interactive scientific sharing and discussion between practitioners and
researchers. AltMM 2018 welcomes submissions of *full papers***(max 6
pages), as well as *short papers***(max 4 pages)**that report
work‐in‐progress, presenting new, unpublished, original research.
Accompanying demonstrations or videos are very welcome and highly
appreciated. Papers will be judged on their relevance, novelty,
scientific and technical content and correctness, and clarity of
presentation. Guidelines and templates can be found on the website. The
workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Further, a Special Issue of a top ranked multimedia journal related to
the workshop series is being planned.
