Call for TOMCCAP Special Issue Proposals

ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications (ACM – TOMCCAP)

Deadline for Proposal Submission: May, 1st 2013

Notification: June, 1st 2013

ACM – TOMCCAP is one of the world’s leading journals on multimedia. As in previous years we are planning to publish a special issue in 2014. Proposals are accepted until May, 1st 2013. Each special issue is the responsibility of guest editors. If you wish to guest edit a special issue you should prepare a proposal as outlined below, then send this via e-mail to EiC Ralf Steinmetz(

Proposals should:

  • Cover a current or emerging topic in the area of multimedia
    computing, communications and applications;
  • Set out the importance of the special issue’s topic in that area;
  • Give a strategy for the recruitment of high quality papers;
  • Indicate a draft time-scale in which the special issue could be
    produced (paper writing, reviewing, and submission of final copies
    to TOMCCAP), assuming the proposal is accepted.

As in the previous years, the special issue will be published as online-only issue in the ACM Digital Library. This gives the guest editors higher flexibility in the review process and the number of papers to be accepted, while yet ensuring a timely publication.A notification of acceptance for the proposals will be given until June, 1st 2013. Once a proposal is accepted we will contact you to discuss the further process.
