Workshop on Semantic Multimedia Database Technologies (SeMuDaTe 2009)

The workshop is collocated with the 4th International Conference on Semantic and Digital Media Technologies SAMT2009 in Graz, Austria – Dec 2-4, 2009.

Ontology-based systems have been developed to structure content and support knowledge retrieval and management. Semantic multimedia data processing and indexing in ontology- based systems is usually done in several steps. One starts by enriching multimedia metadata with additional semantic information possibly obtained by methods for bridging the semantic gap. Then, in order to structure data, a localized and domain specific ontology becomes necessary since the data has to be interpreted domain-specifically. The annotations are stored in an ontology management system where they are kept for further processing. In this scope, Semantic Database Technologies are now applied to ensure reliable and secure access, efficient search, and effective storage and distribution for both multimedia metadata and data. Their services can be used to adapt multimedia to a given context based on multimedia metadata or even ontology information. Services automate cumbersome multimedia processing steps and enable ubiquitous intelligent adaptation. Both, database and automation support facilitate the ubiquitous use of multimedia in advanced applications.

Topics of interest are how multimedia metadata standards and multimedia ontologies are mapped or integrated into databases, how multimedia query languages are built, and how semantic queries are optimized and processed. Moreover, we are interested how multimedia data services are conceived to ensure interoperability, how to improve security and reliability of access and storage of multimedia data and metadata. Adaptation of multimedia, semantic enrichment of multimedia and bridging of media breaks are typical examples of advanced multimedia database services.

The workshop proceedings will be published as a volume at CEUR Workshop Proceedings. Selected papers will appear in a special issue of a journal. Previous editions of the workshop have selected for instance journals from the Springer Verlag.

ACM SIGMM 1st International Workshop on Social Media (WSM2009)

in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2009, Oct. 19-24, 2009, Beijing, P.R. China

Important dates:

Submission deadline - 5 July, 2009
Notification date – 17 July, 2009
Camera ready date – 24 July, 2009
Workshop date – 23 October, 2009

Background:

Recent years have witnessed a growing number of user-centric multimedia applications, especially with the popularity of web 2.0. Examples include Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, Orkut, fotocommunity.com, etc. The emerging applications on social web and social networks have produced a new type of multimedia content, termed as “social media” here as it is created by people using highly accessible and scalable publishing technologies for sharing via the web. With social media, web images, videos and audios are generally accompanied by rich contextual information, such as, tag, category, title, metadata, comments, and viewer ratings, etc. Massive emerging social media data offer new opportunities for resolving the long-standing challenges in multimedia understanding, e.g., the semantic gap issue. This new media also introduces many challenging and new research problems and as well as many exciting real-world applications (e.g. social image search, social group recommendation, etc.). This workshop solicits novel contributions on various aspects of social media research. Workshop papers will elaborate related theory, methodology, algorithms and issues associated to social media content creation, manipulation, content analysis, storage, search, learning, and mining.
