*IEEE Cosponsored*

*The Fourth International Conference on Multimedia Computing, Networking
and Applications (MCNA2020)*




Dealing with data from different modalities, is the common case in today's
systems. With the continuous development in network technologies,
acquisition systems, and computational power, creating and sharing
multimedia data is becoming easier for all people around the world. On
Facebook, for example, around 500000 comments are posted and around 135000
images are uploaded every second. Storing, searching in, analyzing, and
utilizing Multimedia data is highly challenging. That is why the
International Conference on Multimedia Computing, Networking and
Applications (MCNA) give the opportunity for researcher and practitioners
to present their efforts in addressing the challenges of dealing with
Multimedia data. The main topics include but are not limited to:

   - Intelligent Image / Video Analytics
   - Digital Image and Video Processing
   - Image Rendering and Quality
   - Imaging Sensors and Acquisition Systems
   - Content Based Image/Video Retrieval
   - Vision for Graphics
   - Human Behavior Understanding
   - Deep Artificial Intelligence
   - Motion and Tracking Algorithms and Applications
   - Watermarking Methods and Protection
   - Image Data Structures and Databases
   - Color Reproduction
   - Image Compression, Coding, and Encryption
   - Statistical and Structural Pattern Recognition
   - Performance Analysis and Evaluation
   - Novel Image Processing Applications
   - Machine Learning Technologies for Vision

Submission Site:


Paper format

Submitted papers (.pdf format) must use the A4 IEEE Manuscript Templates
for Conference Proceedings
<https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html>. Please

added for references. The reference pages must only contain references.
Overlength papers will be rejected without review.


Paper submissions must conform with the “double-blind” review policy. This
means that the 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 the author 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’
   - Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.
   - Papers without appropriate blinding will be rejected without review.


Papers submitted to MCNA must be the original work of the authors. The may

with regard to plagiarism
https://www.ieee.org/publications/rights/plagiarism/plagiarism-faq.html The
authors' prior work must be cited appropriately.

Author list

Please ensure that you submit your papers with the full and final list of
authors in the correct order. The author list registered for each
submission is not allowed to be changed in any way after the paper
submission deadline.


Please proofread your submission carefully. It is essential that the
language use in the paper is clear and correct so that it is easily
understandable. (Either US English or UK English spelling conventions are


MCNA will host a series of workshops and is also inviting new workshop
proposals. The purpose of the workshops is to emphasize current and
emerging topics of particular interest to the community. Proposals should
be sent by email to intelligenttechorg at gmail.com.

*Proposal Format*

Each workshop proposal must include (maximum 4 pages, in PDF format):

   - Title of the workshop.
   - Workshop organizers (name, affiliation and short biography).
   - Scope and topics of the workshop.
   - Rationale:
      - Why the workshop is related to ACM Multimedia 2020.
      - Why the topic is important.
      - Why the workshop may attract a significant number of attendees.
   - Workshop details:
      - A draft call for papers (including organizers, program committee,
      and steering committee if any). Organizers are expected to be fully
      committed and physically present at the workshop.
      - Workshop tentative schedule (number of expected papers, duration
      full/half day, format talks/posters, etc.). We encourage full-day events
      that demonstrate the interest of the community in the proposed topic and
      guarantee the commitment of the organizers. Half-day proposals are also
