CfP Workshop on Interactive Multimedia Applications (WIMA)

URL: http://tinyurl.com/wima2010

Multimedia applications have become ubiquitous lately. People record and watch videos on mobile and stationary devices, they use non linear video editors, and they share and organize their personal multimedia archives. Lots of research has been  done on the technical aspects  of multimedia, like streaming, presentation, transcoding, adaptation and content  based retrieval  and  analysis.  But  handling  multimedia  is  an interactive process and  users have  to be  taken into  account. Even consumption is often accompanied  with communication,  non linear  browsing and search. This interactivity in multimedia applications is a challenging yet  very promising topic  as especially  in multimedia  applications people  more often accept innovative ideas and fundamental changes more easily.

This workshop should bring  together researchers and practitioners  from the fields of Multimedia and Human-Computer Interaction research  (HCI). In this workshop we aim  to discuss recent scientific advances  and also first results of greenhouse work in the field of interactive  multimedia applications.  We also  encourage the  submission of  papers presenting studies  on  interactivity  in  multimedia  systems  or  discussing  the development of applications in this field.

Topics of interest
Topics include the aspects of interactivity in the following fields:

  • Multimedia Retrieval, Browsing & Navigation
  • User Intentions in Multimedia Search, Annotation & Production
  • Multimedia Production and Post-Production
  • Multimedia in Specialized Domains (e.g. Medical Scenarios, Sports, Security, etc.)
  • Image, Audio and Video Analysis
  • Mobile Multimedia Applications
  • Multimedia on the Web
  • Social Multimedia
  • Multimedia Management and Databases
  • Distributed Multimedia Systems

We also encourage the submission of greenhouse work and preliminary results to be discussed in the workshop.

Submission
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:

  • Full papers (14-20 pages)
  • Short papers (6-14 pages)
  • Posters (4 pages)

All papers have  to be formatted  according to the  Springer LNCS Style. Submission is handled by easychair, see http://tinyurl.com/wima2010 for details.
