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.
