Theme: Generative AI and Creative Multimedia for Sustainable Futures

The International Conference on Creative Multimedia 2024 (ICCM2024) aims to bring together research scholars, educators, practitioners, policymakers, enthusiasts, fellow students, and design entrepreneurs from various perspectives, disciplines, and fields to share and exchange their research creations and experiences on all aspects of generative and creative art and design, digital content and computing creativity and applications. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a game-changer in creative multimedia. AI has enabled us to create new forms of art, music, and design and it automates certain aspects of creative processes. Hence, the theme for this year conference is, “Generative AI and Creative Multimedia for Sustainable Futures.” This conference addresses the use of generative AI and creative multimedia technology in the creative and digital media industry. The primary objective of the conference is to explore how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and its applications in creative multimedia can innovatively communicate and educate people for a sustainable future. The conference emphasizes the need for actions that contribute to environmental sustainability, societal improvement, enhanced governance, and the protection of marginalized communities. We are committed to promoting sustainable development goals, improving quality of life, providing better impact for society and the world through creative multimedia and technologies. This conference is organised in conjunction with Digital Futures International Congress (DIFCON 2024) by the Faculty of Creative Multimedia (FCM) and the Faculty of Cinematic Arts (FCA) at Multimedia University, Malaysia. This is the fourth conference that we organized, since the first one in 2021. ICCM2024 welcomes high-quality research contributions dealing with original and unpublished results on fundamental, conceptual, empirical, and experimental work in all areas of computing and generative AI creativity, generative art and design, and creative media technologies. ICCM2024 invites prospective authors to submit papers to pursue the vibrant discourse of creative multimedia.
