The Multimedia Grand Challenge is a recurring event at the ACM Multimedia Conference series. During this event, delegates from various industries define a number of challenges that they consider of interest from both a business and scientific perspective, giving the multimedia research community an opportunity to solve relevant, interesting, and challenging questions in the multimedia industry's two to five year horizon. Six industry partners participated in this year's Grand Challenge program: Google Japan, HP, Huawei/3DLife, NTT Docomo, NHK, and Technicolor. The 2012 Grand Challenge awarded first- and second-place prizes as well as multimodal and finalist prizes.
