Dr Elena Fedorovskaya (Rochester Institute of Technology, USA) and I are organising the Work-in-Progress session of ACM TVX 2017, to be held in the Netherlands this June. The call for paper is now online.
Association for Computing Machinery, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field’s premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources.  In the area of computer networks and multimedia, ACM has been very successful in supporting prestigious conferences while IEEE still dominates high impact journals.
What’s ACM TVX?
ACM TVX is the leading international conference for research into online video, TV interaction and user experience. It is the successor of the very successful EuroITV series (technically sponsored by ACM Special Interest Groups). TVX bridges human-computer interaction research (supported by ACM SIGCHI) and technology advancement in multimedia systems (supported by ACM SIGMM). As a multi-disciplinary conference, its aim is to foster discussions and innovative experiences amongst the academic research community and industry. 
WiP encourages researchers, students and practitioners to submit research papers based on their recent viewpoints, new discoveries, and early-stage design and development in disciplines that are in line with TVX’s areas of interest. The WiP session provides a unique opportunity for exchanging brave new ideas, receiving feedback and fostering collaborations. We expect many WiP papers to grow into full submissions in the following iteration of TVX.
What’s new about WiP this year?
This year, we expanded the assessment criteria to include not only scientific impact but also societal, economic and industrial impact. In another word, we want to see something cool but also useful and feasible in practice. We also introduced a Project-in-Progress special track, soliciting contributions from ongoing major research initiatives including European Commission-funded or other similar-scale projects for cross-project discussions.
What’s the h-index and acceptance rate of ACM TVX?
TVX is only 3 years old, so we need to wait a bit longer to see its citation index. It is a highly competitive venue with an acceptance rate of ~25%.
