Special Issue on “Multimedia Analysis with Collective Intelligence”

Multimedia analysis has attracted extensive research interests and nowadays it forms the basis of a wide variety of applications and services, such as search, recommendation, advertising, and personalization. Existing technical approaches usually need to be guided with prior knowledge, such as data with labels. But collecting such knowledge is usually not easy, and the problem becomes even worse when we need to deal with big data. Therefore, a lot of research efforts turn to mine the knowledge by exploring collective intelligence. For example, crowds of grassroots users were allowed to generate, annotate and share their own data on public websites like Facebook, Flickr, and Youtube. Collective intelligence is widely embedded in these data as well as their tags, comments and ratings. Such intelligence can be leveraged in multimedia classification, search, recommendation, etc. Moreover, user behaviors interacting with computer and web also contain collective intelligence implicitly, such as users’ click-through, browsing, and viewing history. The widely existed collective intelligence offers us opportunities to tackle the difficulties in multimedia analysis. This special issue is intended to bring together the greatest research efforts along this direction and introduce them to readers.

Scope

The scope of this special issue is to cover all aspects that relate to multimedia analysis with collective intelligence. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Automatic multimedia data collection and labeling.
  • Interactive multimedia data collection and labeling.
  • Label denoising and refinement.
  • Multimedia feature learning with collective intelligence, including global and local feature extraction, keypoint detection, visual vocabulary construction, feature selection, etc.
  • Multimedia modeling with collective intelligence and applications, including classification, clustering, recommendation, etc.
  • User behavior modeling and mining.
  • Social media pattern recognition and mining.
  • Novel crowdsourcing systems, techniques, and interfaces.
  • Information for Authors

Authors should prepare their manuscript according to the Guide for Authors available from the online submission page of the ‘Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation’ at http://ees.elsevier.com/jvci/. When submitting via this page, please select “VSI:CollectiveIntelligence” as the Article Type. Prospective authors should submit high quality, original manuscripts that have not appeared, nor are under consideration, in any other journals.

ICMR 2017 – Call for Open Source Software Papers

ICMR 2017 is calling for papers presenting significant and innovative open source contributions of researchers and software developers to advance the field of multimedia retrieval by providing the community with implementations of middleware, frameworks, toolkits, libraries, players, authoring tools, and other multimedia software. We strongly believe that making available open source resources significantly advances the field by providing a common set of tools for (i) building upon previous work, (ii) improving multimedia research prototypes and (iii) allowing others to replicate research results more easily.

Each open source software paper should not be longer than 4 pages.

Important Dates

Paper Submission: January 27, 2017
Notification of Acceptance: March 29, 2017
Camera-Ready Papers Due: April 26, 2017

CrowdMM 2014 @ ACM MM Call for Papers

The power of crowds – leveraging a large number of human contributors and the capabilities of human computation – has enormous potential to address key challenges in the area of multimedia research. Crowdsourcing offers a time- and resource-efficient method for collecting large volumes of input for system design and evaluation, making it possible to optimize multimedia systems more rapidly and to address human factors more effectively.

At present, crowdsourcing remains notoriously difficult to exploit effectively in multimedia settings: the challenge arises from the fact that a community of users or workers is a complex and dynamic system highly sensitive to changes in the form and the parameterization of their activities.

The third CrowdMM workshop takes place in Orlando, FL, right along ACM Multimedia 2014. For more information, topics and important dates visit: http://www.crowdmm.org/call-for-papers/

ACM MMSys 2014 Dataset Track – Approaching Submission Deadline

As an integral part of the ACM MMSys conference since 2011, the Dataset Track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to make their work available (and citable) to the multimedia community. MMSys encourages and recognizes dataset sharing, and seeks contributions in all areas of multimedia (not limited to MM systems). Authors publishing datasets will benefit by increasing the public awareness of their effort in collecting the datasets.

Submission deadline is Nov. 11th 2013! Make sure not to miss it! See also the Call for Papers

 

CfP: ACM MMSys 2014 Dataset Track

The ACM Multimedia Systems conference (http://www.mmsys.org) provides a forum for researchers, engineers, and scientists to present and share their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia systems is regularly published in the various proceedings and transactions of the networking, operating system, real-time system, and database communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the context of multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to view the intersections and interplay of the various approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data types. Furthermore, MMSys provides an avenue for communicating research that addresses multimedia systems holistically.

As an integral part of the conference since 2011 2012, the Dataset Track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to make their work available (and citable) to the multimedia community. MMSys encourages and recognizes dataset sharing, and seeks contributions in all areas of multimedia (not limited to MM systems). Authors publishing datasets will benefit by increasing the public awareness of their effort in collecting the datasets.

In particular, authors of datasets accepted for publication will receive:

  • Dataset hosting from MMSys for at least 5 years
  • Citable publication of the dataset description in the proceedings published by ACM
  • 15 minutes oral presentation time at the MMSys 2014 Dataset Track

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the technical program committee of the MMSys 2014. Datasets will be evaluated by the committee on the basis of the collection methodology and the value of the dataset as a resource for the research community.

Submission Guidelines 

Authors interested in submitting a dataset should

(A) Make their data available by providing a public URL for download

(B) Write a short paper describing:

  1. motivation for data collection and intended use of the data set,
  2. the format of the data collected, 
  3. the methodology used to collect the dataset, and 
  4. basic characterizing statistics from the dataset.

Papers should be at most 6 pages long (in PDF format) prepared in the ACM style and written in English.

Important dates

  • Data set paper submission deadline: November 11, 2013
  • Notification: December 20, 2013
