Main Track

The Brazilian Symposium on Multimedia and Web (WebMedia) is the main scientific 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. In 2022, we will celebrate the 28th. edition of WebMedia in Curitiba-PR, Brazil, from November 7th to 11th, 2022. The symposium will be organized this year by the Federal University of Technology – Paraná.

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 Multimedia, Hypermedia and Web. Submitted papers will be evaluated in terms of originality, technical quality, relevance, presentation (organization, style, and clarity) and suitability of references to works in the state-of-the-art of the approached themes.

Each (full or short) paper will be revised by a minimum of three Program Committee members and invited specialists. The presentation of each accepted paper will be made in person in Curitiba – PR, Brazil. ..

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 written in Portuguese, the paper 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 .
