-----------------	CALL FOR PAPERS       ---------------------------


	       JULY 30 -- AUGUST 2, 2000, NEW YORK CITY


International Conference on Multimedia & Expo 2000 is the first IEEE
multimedia conference that will take place in joint collaboration with
four IEEE societies. The same four IEEE societies that have recently
launched the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, namely the Circuits and
Systems Society, the Computer Society, the Signal Processing Society
and the Communications Society have again come together in making this
one-of-a-kind conference a reality.

The goal is to unify all IEEE as well as non-IEEE multimedia related
activities under the common umbrella of ICME 2000 -- the millennium
multimedia meeting. It is expected that this will become a yearly
event as the flagship Multimedia conference of the IEEE.  New York
City (the Big Apple) is uniquely suited for this first-time event in
view of its large concentration of high tech Industries, first-rate
academic institutions and numerous small multimedia companies. The
intent is to blend the traditional IEEE conference framework into an
Expo by providing the industry an opportunity to showcase products.

Authors should submit a four-page manuscript in double-column format
including authors' names, affiliations and a short abstract. Only
electronic submission (in postscript format) will be accepted.
Electronic submission procedure will be made available at the
conference web site:


Topics covered include but are not limited to the following:
	* Signal processing for media integration
	* Components and technologies for multimedia systems
	* Human-machine interface and interaction
	* Multimedia databases and file systems
	* Multimedia communication and networking
	* System integration
	* Applications
	* STDS standards and related issues

Once accepted, the authors will be asked to prepare a four-page camera ready
paper to appear in the conference proceedings and CD-ROM proceedings.

Proposals for special sessions and half-day or full-day tutorial courses
may be submitted to the respective chairs before the respective
deadlines. Visit the conference web site for further information.
