Number of accepted papers and implications
Full paper acceptance in BigMM was very competitive. All accepted full papers were presented in single session (NOT parallel) at the main conference. Such a presentation style indeed benefited all attendees who can enjoy all full papers without switching among parallel sessions. BigMM will continue such a style to maximize the value of full papers. All accepted full and concise papers are also invited to be presented in the poster session in addition to the oral presentation, for more discussions with all attendees.
Technical Paper Submission Instructions
Only electronic submission will be accepted. Technical paper authors MUST submit their manuscripts through EasyChair. Please follow this link (Please register if not an EasyChair user). Manuscripts may only be submitted in PDF format.
