About Us

There are many multimedia researchers in the SF Bay Area. Many of
us work at startups and large companies and do not have time to travel to academic conferences. However, we want to meet other peers to exchange ideas. We want to attend short, more frequent, local meetings.

In addition, professors from local universities or universities in other states/countries want a forum at which to meet industrial researchers to expose their ideas to researchers and have more interaction with industry. They also want to learn about real problems that industry wants to solve and use that to motivate and guide their future research. To fit these professors' tight schedules, short but more frequent meetings are also preferable.

Encouraged and sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing, IEEE Technical Committee on Semantic Computing, ACM Special Interest Group on Multimedia, and FX Palo Alto Laboratory, we are starting a half-day Bay Area Multimedia Forum (BAMMF) series. Experts from both academia and industry are invited to exchange ideas and information through talks, tutorials, panel discussions and networking sessions. Topics of the forum will include emerging areas in multimedia, advancement in algorithms and development, demonstration of new inventions, productization of technologies, business opportunities, etc.
