                             Call for Papers

The Computer Graphics Lab (EPFL), MIRALab (University of Geneva), the
Computer Graphics Society (Geneva), and the IFIP Working Group 5.10 are
pleased to announce MMM'98.

As with last year's conference held in Singapore, MMM'98 will provide a
forum to discuss the efficient representation, processing, interaction,
integration, communication, and retrieval of multimedia information. In
particular, MMM'98 will concentrate on common modeling frameworks for
integrating the diverse fields of visual, audio, video, and virtual
World information. MMM'98 will take place on 12-15 October 1998 in

Contributions describing original research, surveys and applications in
the following areas are solicited:

* Formal Support for Multimedia          * Interactive Multimedia
