Student Consortium

IEEE BigMM invites contributions from undergraduate/graduate researchers for the Student Consortium. Only undergraduate/graduate students currently enrolled at some institute are eligible to submit papers to the undergraduate/graduate consortium, respectively. The student consortium will be an ideal forum for undergraduate/graduate students to present their research work/ideas and receive valuable feedback from experts in the field of Multimedia Big Data. The detailed topics are listed in the general call for papers at

Submissions will be accepted based on the feedback provided by the Student Consortium chairs and potentially other reviewers. Selection preference will be given to the candidates who have a concrete topic and research approach. For students who are towards the end of their candidacy, experimental results can be an additional selection criterion. We encourage participation from all undergraduate, master, and PhD students to respective student consortium tracks (undergraduate or graduate consortium).
