Award Opportunities


SIGMM Awards


  • SIGMM Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis in Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications
    • This award is presented at most once per year to a researcher whose PhD thesis has the potential of very high impact in multimedia computing, communication and applications, or gives direct evidence of such impact. A selection committee will evaluate contributions towards advances in multimedia including multimedia analysis, processing, integration, systems, network services, applications, and interfaces. The committee will particularly value work which is at the core of the multimedia community so a thesis consisting of material for which ACM Multimedia is the primary venue for publication. To that end it is good to consult the ACM 2019 Multimedia reviewer guidelines.
    • The award includes a US$500 honorarium, an award certificate of recognition, and an invitation for the recipient to receive the award at the ACM International Conference on Multimedia (ACM Multimedia). A public citation for the award will be placed on the SIGMM website, in the SIGMM Records e-newsletter as well as in the ACM e-newsletter.
    • Submission Deadline: July 31, 2019

  • SIGMM Rising Star Award
    • Starting 2016, ACM SIGMM will present a "Rising Star" Award annualy, recognizing a young researcher - an individual either no older than 35 or within 7 years of PhD - who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of multimedia computing, communication and applications during this early part of his or her career. Depth, impact, and novelty of the researcher's contributions will be key criteria upon which the Rising Star award committee will evaluate the nominees. Also of particular interest are strong research contributions made independently from the nominee's PhD advisor.
    • The award includes a $1000 honorarium, an award certificate of recognition, and an invitation for the recipient to present a keynote talk at a current year's SIGMM-sponsored conference, the ACM International Conference on Multimedia (ACM Multimedia). Travel expenses to the conference will be covered by SIGMM, and a public citation for the award will be placed on the SIGMM website.
    • Submission Deadline: May 15, 2018
