TOMCCAP becomes TOMM

On 23rd May 2014, ACM TOMCCAP becomes ACM TOMM.

This acronym change is the result of a discussion within the journal’s Editorial Board, within SIGMM and between the ACM SIGMM Executive Committee and the Editorial Board. It is a process which started already in the year 2011.

Two reasons have led to the final decision: 1.) Many scientists, authors and readers have been telling us that the acronym “TOMCCAP” is somehow strange; it does not imply the journal’s focus on Multimedia research, it is too long and complicated; it sounds too specialized for a leading journal which highlights all aspects of Multimedia research. 2.) With this name change we want to emphasize the strong and long lasting collaboration with the ACM Multimedia conference (ACM MM) which we plan to further increase in the future.
