ACM MM 2013 authors are invited to submit videos for display on screens around the conference centre. This offers all attendees an opportunity to become aware of your paper, and thus to be attracted to attend your poster or talk. The video collection will also be published online on the website of ACM MM 2013 at the end of the conference.
The videos will be short (maximum of 30 seconds) and will be displayed without audio at the conference centre (we want to run them on multiple screens, and don’t want to create a cacophony in the conference centre). As the examples below show, a 30-second silent video can quite effectively get across the main idea of one’s work, even if very simply prepared.
In the above example, we arbitrarily chose four papers from various sources as examples. They are quite different: some are video-based, so naturally fit the format, while others are purely presentation-based. We hope all show the kind of approach one can take in a 30-second silent video.
Detailed Video Submission Format
Please submit a 960x480x30sec video. The video should not contain your names and affiliation: these will be added in a band at the top, as shown on the example video, yielding a 960×540 qHD frame. It can have audio, but this will be present only in the web archive at the end of the conference.
SUBMISSIONS NOT SATISFYING THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES WILL BE REJECTED. IF YOU ARE DOUBTFUL, SUBMIT SEVERAL DAYS EARLY AND EMAIL US FOR APPROVAL.
- Allowed extensions: readable by VLC
- Length: Maximum 30 sec. Everything beyond 30 seconds will be cut
- File size: Maximum 30MB
- Size: 960×480 pixels (2:1 aspect ratio). The PowerPoint 2010 template available may be of assistance [Link the pptx template]

More detailed instructions about how to submit your video materials will be provided later on this page.
