The MADiMa 2016 workshop follows the guidlines of the ACMMM 2016 conference. Following you may find information about the submission procedure and details on how to format your manuscript.


Manuscript submission

The Submission website is now open : Paper Submission

New this year:

  • Long papers shall be no shorter than 8 pages and no longer than 10 pages (including references).
  • Short papers shall be no longer than 5 pages with the 5th page exclusively reserved for references.

All papers must be formatted according to ACM proceedings style.

Papers submitted to this track must conform with a “Double-blind Review” process, such that authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors.

  • Do not put your names under the title.
  • Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors.
  • Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs).
  • Check supplemental material (e.g., titles in the video clips, or supplementary documents) for information that may identify the authors identity.
  • Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Please check this site regularly for various updates.


Demo proposal submission

The 2nd International Workshop on Multimedia Assisted Dietary Management organizes a demonstration track – an interactive way to present applications and prototypes. In addition to the papers presenting the latest theoretical advances, MADiMa 2016 is seeking for real-world demonstrations of novel portable solutions for dietary assessment/management, using:

  • Computer vision
  • Augmented reality
  • Wearable sensors
  • Computerized food composition/recipe analysis
  • or other technologies relevant to the workshop’s themes

We encourage demonstrations of working systems from early prototypes to mature product-oriented solutions originating from both industry and academia.

To participate in the demo track you are expected to submit an abstract demo proposal (up to one page)  after selecting “Demo” as the type of submission. The abstract should describe clearly:

  • the technology demonstrated
  • the research background and context
  • the aspects of novelty

One image should be included in the abstract while short videos may also be linked. The abstracts will be made public on the website after acceptance, with the authors’ consent.

The facilities provided by the organizers for the demos include tables, poster boards, power outlets and wireless (shared) Internet connection. Demo presenters are expected to bring themselves everything else needed for their demo, such as laptops, sensors, power adapters etc.


ArXiv policy

Similar to other prestigious conferences we adhere to the following policy regarding arXiv papers:

Our policy is based upon the following particular definition of “publication”. A publication is defined to be a written work that was submitted for review by peers for either acceptance or rejection, and, after review, was accepted. In particular, this definition of publication does not depend upon whether such an accepted written work appears in a formal proceedings or whether the organizers declare that such work “counts as a publication”.

Note that such a definition does not consider an paper as a publication because it cannot be rejected. It also excludes university technical reports which are typically not peer reviewed. However, this definition of publication does include peer-reviewed workshop papers, even if they do not appear in a proceedings. Given this definition, any submission to ACM Multimedia should not have substantial overlap with prior publications or other concurrent submissions.

So note: a Technical Report (departmental,, etc.) that is put up without any form of direct peer-review is NOT considered a publication and is therefore allowed, but should NOT be cited. Likewise, mention of the work under review in a presentation is NOT considered a violation.
