Audiovisual, interactive and mobile media interweave with our everyday life. In almost all our areas of life, they change our behavior and affect our perception, thinking and feeling. The Forum Media Technology (FMT) aims for an intensive dialogue of experts working at agencies, studios and production companies with students, lecturers, researchers and developers. Contributions are sought for the 9th Forum Media Technology, presenting current results of applied research and development, new theoretical and scientific findings or case studies, projects, formats, services and prototypes in digital media technologies.
In order to foster the exchange between various disciplines in the huge field of digital media, the Forum Media Technology intentionally puts its focus on a wide range of content and on interdisciplinary dialogues at the intersection of new technological possibilities, creative design as well as economic, social and cultural framework requirements.

 Paper Submission and Review Process
Papers should describe original and unpublished work on the above or closely related topics. Please submit your paper electronically at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/FMT2016/. Contributions can be submitted in German or English. FMT welcomes submissions in three different submission categories: - Full Paper: Full papers should report substantial, completed, and previously unpublished research. The maximum length is 8 pages excluding references in the FMT conference paper format. Accepted full papers will be presented as a talk of 20 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion. - Short Paper: Short papers are appropriate for reporting smaller experiments, surveys, and work in progress. The maximum length is 4 pages excluding references in the FMT conference paper format. Accepted short papers will be presented as a talk of 10 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion. - Graduate Consortium: The FMT 2016 Graduate Consortium session is intended to provide an opportunity for graduate and doctoral students to explore, discuss and develop their research topic in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished researchers. We invite students to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with colleagues and researchers in the field. Candidates for the Graduate Consortium should have a clear topic and research approach. Their work should be still in progress and allow for making changes, so that applicants can benefit from the consortium’s feedback. Accepted proposals will be presented in a one-minute elevator statement to the audience and then discussed in detail in smaller individual discussion groups.
