ACM TOMM Special Issues and Special Sections

by, Alberto del Bimbo, Editor-in-Chief of ACM TOMM

ACM TOMM journal has launched a new two-year program of SPECIAL ISSUES and SPECIAL SECTIONS on strategic and emerging topics in Multimedia research. Each Special Issue will also include an extended survey paper on the subject of the issue, prepared by the Guest Editors.
