Outrageous opinions and critical discussions
We invite members of SIGMM to make initiate discussions about the state-of-the-art in Multimedia by contributing to SIGMM Records. Maybe you have noticed that it is time to stop simulating and start building in one of our field? Here you argue for it. Maybe you observe that some of our fields overlap and should really talk to each other? Here you can motivate them. We are open for most contributions, but SIGMM membership of at least one author is mandatory, and the contributions will be reviewed, may need revision and they may even be rejected entirely.

Paper errata and background information
Our publication channels leave very few openings for providing additional information about papers that have been published in conference proceedings or journals. There is the option of creating a technical report, but even those with ISBN numbers are notoriously volatile. SIGMM Records allows SIGMM members to provide additional information about, and particularly to make correction to, a paper that has been published by a SIGMM-sponsored or co-sponsored venue and that is available from the ACM Digital Library. SIGMM membership of at least one author is mandatory, and the contributions will be reviewed, may need revision and they may even be rejected entirely.

PhD thesis abstracts
To achieve its goal of strengthening the dissemination of research and in order to get to know the members of the community, the newsletter will feature abstracts of recently concluded PhD theses. If you are a member of ACM SIGMM and have successfully defended your PhD thesis in a field that is relevant to the SIGMM community in the past 6 months, or if you are a SIGMM member and you have supervised a student who has recently achieved this, you are invited to submit an abstract that briefly describes the work.
