The core of the ACM Multimedia 2002 Technical Program are the technical sessions where technical papers are presented by their authors. Those papers have been selected by the Conference Program Committee among the (very) large number of submissions that have been received. This drastic selection was operated after a very detailed review of the submissions, with the objective of giving to the conference attendants the most interesting information on the current status of Research and Development in Multimedia.

Beside the oral presentations, the technical program also includes:
