The paper submission deadline has been extended to April 28, 2008.
Studies show that sales of digital capture devices like video camera, digital photo cameras, or mobile phones with digital cameras are still rising. Therefore it can be expected that the number of created digital multimedia content will rise dramatically in future. Multimedia metadata is currently the only way to cope with problems like semantics based retrieval or organization of content and provides means to specify adaptation and delivery constraints and rules. Within this special session the importance of metadata for media technologies is discussed. We encourage the submission of high quality scientific work as well as application papers. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Multimedia technologies and metadata in the social web
- Multimedia semantics
- Annotation of multimedia content
- Metadata in pervasive multimedia computing
- Metadata for new media
- Studies and surveys in context of multimedia metadata and new media
We encourage the submission of high quality scientific work as well as application papers.
