Call for Proposals to host ICME 2015/2016

This Call for Proposal is distributed on behalf of the Steering Committee for the 2015 and 2016 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) to be held in summer of both years. IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME) has been the flagship multimedia conference sponsored by four IEEE societies since 2000. It serves as a forum to promote the exchange of the latest advances in multimedia technologies, systems, and applications from both the research and development perspectives of the circuits and systems, communications, computer, and signal processing communities. An Exposition of multimedia products, animations and industries will be held in conjunction with the conference. ICME 2015 will be the sixteenth meeting in this series and ICME 2016 will be the seventeenth in the series.

The conference organizing team is advised to incorporate into their proposal the following items:
