Promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), the Brazilian Symposium on Multimedia and Web (WebMedia) is the main event of the theme in Brazil and an excellent opportunity for scientific and technical exchange among students, researchers and professionals in the areas of Multimedia, Hypermedia and Web. This year we will be celebrating to 25th edition of WebMedia, which will be held from October 29th to November 1st in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
We invite the research community to share research experiences and results by submitting technical papers that describe solutions to advance the state-of-the-art in the event’s areas and themes of interest. Submitted papers will be evaluated in terms of originality, technical quality, relevance, presentation (organization, style, and clarity) and adequacy of references to works in the state-of-the-art of the approached themes.
Each paper (full or short) will be revised by a minimum of three members of the Program Committee and invited specialists. In this WebMedia edition, we will offer to authors whose papers were not accepted in the first evaluation an opportunity to appeal to the result. With this, we expect to reduce any losses associated with the peer review process.
Authors may submit full or short papers. Full papers (6 to 8 pages) shall report substantial research based on complete results. Short papers (4 pages) may describe full or ongoing works, containing partial results.
Topics of interest to WebMedia 2019 include, but are not limited to:
– Content adaptation, personalization, and recommendation
– Content analysis, coding, and processing
– Applications and services
– Multi-device applications
– Architecture, processes, and methodologies
– Content authoring and annotation
– Content search, retrieval, and visualization
– Collaboration, interactive spaces, and activism and digital society
– Mobile and wearable devices and Internet of Things (IoT)
– Content distribution, transport, sharing, and security
– Document engineering and Web engineering
– Management of digital collections
– Interfaces, new interactions, usability, accessibility, and user experience
– Languages, models, and patterns
– Social networks analysis, opinion analysis, and social and emergent semantics
– Synchronization and presentation
– Multimodal and multisensory systems and applications
– Systems and Middleware
– Test and validation of systems and applications
– Semantic Web, linked data, semantic annotations, metadata and ontologies
The papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Papers written in Portuguese should have both the title and abstract in English and, optionally, the abstract in Portuguese. This is a requirement of ACM, so even if it is an article in Portuguese, it must have a title and abstract in English.
Papers should be written to allow double-blind review. Thus authors’ identifications must be replaced by “removed for double-blind review” both at the beginning of the article and in any references to their previous work.
Authors are encouraged to review previous WebMedia publications to see if their theme fits the symposium’s lines of interest. Also, consider the pertinence of including references to related works presented in previous editions of WebMedia, to assist the reviewers in evaluating the contribution, in particular, in the scope of WebMedia.
The event proceedings, containing full and short articles, will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Will be published by ACM only those articles whose authors comply with the deadlines established for submitting the final version to the publisher responsible for the proceedings. Besides, this publication will be conditioned to the registration of at least one of its authors in the event.
This year we are pleased to announce that the Special Committee on Multimedia Systems and the Web (CE-WebMedia) has the financial resources to provide author support for those with selected papers. Detailed instructions on the conditions of the aid will be displayed on the student support page.
Submissions should be made in PDF, following the standard ACM format that is available at (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). Authors should use the LaTeX template for ACM conferences using the acmart class in the sigconf format.
All papers must be submitted electronically by the JEMS System.
In addition to submission to the main event, authors are also invited to submit articles for the following event categories:
XVIII Tools and Applications Workshop (WFA)
XVI Workshop on Undergraduate Research Work (WTIC)
Workshop The Future of Interactive DTV (WTVDI)
Thesis and Dissertation Contest (CTD)
VI Workshop CT-Video/RNP
Works accepted in workshops and short-courses will be published electronically. The form, deadlines, and specific submission rules for these 2019 WebMedia events are available on their respective pages.
